Pretty ‘n Pink Wedding Flowers
Pink was the winning colour when selecting flowers for Laura and Stephen’s March wedding. Teal satin was being worn by the two bridesmaids and the options on the brides list were sun-flowers, white roses and perphaps red roses – there was no mention of pink at all! When I saw the the bridesmaids dresses I felt that pink would be a fantastic option. When the bride and groom saw some pictures of hot pink flowers they were bowled over instantly.
The bride wanted her bouquet to be different from the bridesmaids so opted for a mixed flower posy bouquet – I choose gorgeous pink bouvardia, sweet avelanche rose, avelanche rose, ammi, aqua and sweet duet roses for depth of colour and finished it off in a collar of leather leaf – I dressed the handle in the usual double faced satin ribbon. The choice for bridesmaids was mixed roses – hot pink and white. I like to include a few white roses as it enhances the pinks.
The flower-girls had a small posy similar to the bridemaids with the handle left about 2″ longer for ease of holding. The smallest flower girl had a wand which she loved – I loved it too. It was just one fabulous sweet avelanche rose with a collar of opened bouvardia.
