15 of our favorite bouquets (and what's in 'em!)

 

Believe it or not, the bridal bouquet pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the wedding.  It's typically the first floral piece our bride will see on her big day.  As wedding florists we pour the most amount of love and care into crafting a bouquet that's (almost) as beautiful as the bride that carries it.  It's absolutely my very favorite thing to make and I'll spend countless hours on it (sometimes I completely take it apart and re-do it! More than once even!  I'm a bit perfectionist : ) 

If flowers are super important to you and your vision for your big day, it's not a bad idea to choose a season that corresponds with your favorite blooms!  Below I've picked out some of our favorite bridal bouquets.  I've listed what's in them, and what time of the year you can expect to see these particular flowers.  Of course, nature will always be in charge, so we can never guarantee that flowers will be in season when they're supposed to be.  Extra warm, cold, dry, or wet weather can really throw things off.  And since most of us use locally-grown flowers, but also blooms from around the world, we're talking about world-wide weather patterns and fluctuations.  But rest assured, we will MOVE THE EARTH to get our hands on blooms that will blow your mind, even if we have to compromise on exact varieties : )

Happy wedding planning to all the engaged couples out there!
