Fresh Cut Bridal Fashions: Classic to Contemporary
By: Sarah Leung of Flower Girl Designs
I am a floral designer, a creative, a person who likes to think outside of the box. In discussions with Dina Engler of Casa di Bella, I simply said “I want to play with the beauty of the bridal gowns” and an idea was born. I wanted to showcase beautiful dresses and I wanted to use flowers and floral designs that are a little outside of the box for an every day bride. The idea turned into one of the most impressive collaborations I have ever been a part of and I am so grateful to every member of the team who made this happen!
The most traditional bouquet with a beautiful selection of roses, stock, tulips, dusty miller and silver dollar eucalyptus create the perfect blend of ivory to champagne with the touch of silvery green. To add a little texture to the bouquet the use of astrantia and hypericum berries were used in the design. The slight use of texture and blended shades of cream and champagne make this bouquet an iconic bridal style.

Recently, the cascade bouquet has made a return to bridal bouquets. This bouquet has trailing ivy, hanging green amaranthus, cascading sweet peas, and delicate lisanthus and ranunculus. To keep it on the classic side the design was created with pastel shades of lavender, soft blush pink, and ivory. To compliment, the bouquet of floral crown of pink wax flower and spray roses was worn by the bride.

Bright and Bold
The next big move in wedding fashion: bold pops of color utilized in style and design. This bouquet blends the loose natural garden style with a tropical pop of colors. Large blooms such as pink ginger and pink protea steel the show, with fuschia pink roses and tulips accenting this stunning showpiece.

A tropical oasis of flowers! The bouquet has a plethora of tropical foliage used to create texture and depth and large vibrant blooms as an explosion of color. This bouquet style will set your wedding day look apart with its unique composition!

With the Pantone Color of the year being Greenery, this bouquet was designed with color and texture in mind. The loosely gathered bouquet had all the best of spring; parrot tulips, helliborous, spray roses, astilbe, and ferns. It was a green goddess of springtime!

A bouquet isn’t just a bouquet anymore! A hand woven wreath frame creates the foundation for a unique artistic floral bouquet. The willow was hand woven with the tips loosely spraying from the center, ferns and flowers cascaded from this hand made frame, and while the colors are traditional this “bouquet” breaks every rule in the book! For ease of holding a ribbon was used as a handle.
