Blue & Purple Winter Wedding ~ Brittany’s Inspiration Board

Brittany writes: My wedding is in December. It’s going to be simple but elegant. My bridesmaid dresses are dark purple (grape from bridal gallery). I was thinking of having purple and blue but can’t find a whole lot of ideas. I originally was hoping to have calla lily’s but that’s not a must have.

Love the colors! I used a bouquet that I think is stunning and has a winter’y December feel. Made up with hydrangeas and anemones in various shades of blue and purple (this way you get all the tones) and green grey greenery. The soft green leaves makes for a winter perfect bouquet. I know there aren’t calla lilies in this example, but they go great with hydrangeas and we offer them in both purple and blue if you’d like to add them! You could even swap out the anemones for the callas.

Colorful Peony Bouquet ~ Jessica’s Inspiration Board

Jessica writes:  Hi Mindy, I am a big fan of your designs, and was wondering if you could help me. My wedding is at the end of April. I opted for a turquoise/blue color for the bridesmaids with an accent color of yellow. I find that I like succulents, roses, peonies, and daisies. I lean towards multicolor bouquets, but am open to any suggestions. I am at a complete loss as to how to design something myself.  Thank you, Jessica M.

Colorful Gerbera Daisy Bouquet ~ Leeann’s Inspiration Board

Leeann writes:  My colors will be mostly pink, yellow, and blue. We love nature and the outdoors, so our theme is very rustic and earthy. I love bright colors and the element of the twigs in the attached photo! I also like daisies, but I’m not sure how well those would work in a bouquet. Would love to see some ideas!
