Elizabeth & Wesley

Elizabeth and Wesley’s wedding combined a garden ceremony with a bright downtown hip reception. The ceremony was held at Gloria Day in Hudson, the Bride carried a bouquet of roses in pale pink, buttercup yellow and ivory with pale pink gerbera daises. Elizabeth choose to accent her bouquet with a family prayer Bible. Hydrangeas, roses and alstromeria accented the altar arrangements to create a garden feel that went with the whitewashed charm of the church interior. The Bridesmaids carried clusters of roses, gerbera daises and alstromeria in bright pinks, oranges and yellows. Bright pops of color continued at the Hyatt Arcade in Downtown Cleveland for the reception. Vases of white hydrangeas with pops of red, yellow and orange roses decorated each table and accented the navy blue of the linens. The hydrangeas continued the garden theme of the ceremony but combined with the roses and well chosen linens looked great in a city setting providing the color needed to accent the Arcade, melding garden and city together.

Using purple in your flowers

Purple flowers are a popular and versatile choice for weddings. It goes with almost every color and can be used with other colors to create the perfect wedding color palette. A variety of flowers in shades of purple can be used to create texture or one single shade of a flower can be used to create an impact. For example shades of purple can be mixed with one or more of the following: yellow, pink, green, black, red. Flower choices in purple are many; iris, mini calla lily, roses (lavender), stock, freesia, mums, delphinium, larkspur, hydrangea, orchids, lisianthus and sweet peas. Purple flowers can also be used at any time of the year, try lavender with yellow or pink for a spring wedding or a deep eggplant for the winter or late fall.

Flower Girl Options

Flower girls don’t just have to throw petals anymore. There are several options for one of the youngest members of your Bridal party and since many churches no longer allow petal throwing you can try one of these great ideas. Have your Flower girl hold a tiny version of the Bridesmaids bouquets or hold a basket with flower tops inside. Another option for older Flower girls is a flowered headpiece or pomander. All of these choices can fit into your big day, just keep in mind what will work with your other flowers and what will fit with the age and personality of your Flower girl.
