Let’s talk weddings! Since spring has begun to bloom I think the best thing to start with here at TSP Wedding headquarters are bouquets. Now, this is a major topic, brides. Flowers can completely assist in achieving a particular feeling and look when done right or completely demolish it when done wrong. There are a few things I see out there that I am IN LOVE WITH right now in terms of floral trends. One major one is this bohemian chic vibe.
It is just frigging gorgeous. Like, can someone please just pop the question so I can have another wedding just for this reason alone? Airy, eclectic, wild and fun.
The other bridal trend I am loving is straight up romance. Think Victorian florals meet 2016.
I am obsessed. I mean…. I DO! Here is the deal, brides. Flowers are major. Especially right now. What grabs my attention and get my nips all hard are the use of different textures and sizes. Eclectic at its best! It seems brides are opting to go for a more natural, chic, softer look in terms of their dress, headpiece, makeup and jewelry while they are making great statements with their florals and I. Am. Loving. This. Since it is spring we are talking about only spring bouquets here . Think soft pastel pinks, lavenders and greens. Think whites. Corals. Touches of deep berries and wild flowers and texture.
Take a look at these, for example.
Now without completely contradicting myself and my taste, the truth is less is more. Now, here am I talking about big beautiful floral statements but at the same time suggesting less is more. And yes, that is what I mean. You can have a huge ass bouquet made up of a neutral somewhat monochromatic pallet or even an array of spring time hues that is drop dead gorgeous and tastefully done. That is what I mean by less is more. Do it up but do it up in the right way. Jewel tones (a little here and there in spring bouquets are legal), reds (a touch of red is ok, entirely red bouquets, no way Jose), rainbow assorted florals, and bright ass colors are not what you Spring brides should be carrying down the aisle. Please. No. Just don’t do it. I don’t care how badly you always envisioned your black and white wedding with your red lips and bright red rose bouquets in May. Save that kaka for New Years. If I were a police officer I would arrest your ass for bad taste. There is a time and a place for everything and a spring wedding is not the time for that shit. Soften your hues, broaden your floral pallet and think romantic, chic, airy, and timeless.
Please enjoy these examples of bouquets I approve of for your springtime nuptials.
How in love are you with these bouquets?!? My favorite things about them? I love the use of wildflowers, peonies, anemones, and color.
I want to mention, I think you all should get the idea of doing something “really different, special and neat” out of your heads. There is no need to come up with a new, creative way to make a bridal bouquet when there are hundreds of incredible examples of florals that actually work, and work well. Like…. leave the creativity to a reputable florist and stay away from innovative bouquets like these.
What the hell is this shit? If I were your future spouse and you walked down the aisle with one of these pieces of crap I would leave your ass at the alter. I understand there are budgets but tight ones don’t need to mean bad bouquets. With florals for your wedding…. put your money where your bouquets are. If you are on a tight budget forget about centerpieces for tables. There are so many ways to make your tables look gorgeous without huge ass floral centerpieces and if you ask me, I think gigantic flashy centerpieces are kind of tacky and a thing of the past. I will do an entire post about that later. Until then, use what I have showed you here as inspiration for your beautiful springtime bridal bouquet.
Pin away, TSPeeps!
Love it. Live it. Share it.
