Purple Posies

Posted by hchapple on Aug 03, 2009

This weekend, we had 3 different weddings that all used purple and lavender flowers. What always amazes me about design, is how one element can change the whole piece.

One bride chose a very traditional and vintage look by going with just clean lavender Roses and Freesia. We added jewels to give the bouquet a little hint of glamor.  The bouquet was bound with ivory satin ribbon and diamonds. The piece was very simple and elegant.

Our second bride of the day chose to add bright chartreuse green hydrangea into the mix of lavenders and purples. We had dark purple Callas, white Callas with purple center, lavender and white Freesia, lavender Phlox, and green Roses.  Calla’s tend to make designs look very contemporary, however mixed in with garden classics like hydrangea and phlox the end result is a pleasant mix.

Our next bride chose a base of cream hydrangea. The cream with the purple mini callas were spiraling out of the bouquet just like the previous bouquet, however the look is completely different.  We added a dark purple Orchid to this bouquet and everything changed. We also featured white Cymbidium Orchid blossoms and we used the same lavender Phlox and Freesia from the previous bouquets.

So the next time you are agonizing over what blossom to use remember it does make a difference, however if the designer you chose is capable the end result will always be awesome.
