You have researched and pinned ‘all things’ flowers, but have you given any deep thought to the greenery that you will use in your wedding ceremony backdrop? This is a question we ask all of our clients and in most cases, the answer is ‘no.’ Understandably, as leaves and stems usually play a supporting role to the real stars of the show – roses, peonies, orchids, and dahlias. But like any great movie or play, unforgettable wedding decor is dependent on the chemistry between the entire cast.

When we first meet with our brides to discuss the design of their dream bouquet, they usually have one or two ‘go-to’ flowers in mind such as the garden rose, peony, or ranunculus. This is a great starting point, but rarely does a bouquet contain just one or two flowers. Rather, the colors, texture, and dimension that define a bouquet’s unique beauty are the result of major and secondary blooms in combination with fillers and greenery.

To help our readers better understand all the pretty details that go into assembling the perfect hand-held arrangement, we are sharing the floral recipes from our most ‘liked’ Real BB Wedding bouquets.

We love cultivated floral decor. But heading into summer, we can’t help but fall under the spell of wildflowers. Charming, colorful, and natural, they add a fresh, carefree feel to the weddingscape. Your first assumption may be that wildflowers can only be used in ‘boho,’ ‘rustic,’ ‘country,’ or ‘organic’ decorative themes. But as you will see, wildflowers can be worked into just about every wedding style from clean and minimalist to classic and elegant. The big question here is, “How ‘wild’ do you want to go?” Keep in mind, you don’t have to make a full commitment to the theme. Adding just few wildflowers to more ‘traditional’ wedding blossoms is all that is needed to bring a sense of lighthearted joy to your big day.

You’ve finally decided on the dress and shoes, now it’s time to start thinking about the flowers that you’ll be carrying down the aisle. As the bride’s ultimate floral accessory, the wedding bouquet is the finishing touch on your big day look and should be chosen carefully. While we love a voluminous clutch of cascading blossoms and greenery, smaller bouquets have been catching our eye most recently. What these petite arrangements lack in stature, they more than make up with beauty and meaning. Unique, creative, and personal details become all the more important here. This is especially true as brides have had to reconsider their original vision because of COVID-19, and plan for a smaller, more intimate affair.
