Gemma’s Rustic Woodland Wedding Bouquet Inspiration


Bouquet Inspiration Photo:  La Vie En Rose

{Gemma’s Request}
Hi! I love your blog! I’m a new bride to be and planning on doing my own flowers – but I don’t even know where to start!! I’m having an October wedding in a Scottish castle (in a marquee in the grounds) and will be having a rustic/Autumn/vintage feel to the day with a bit of a nod to the season. My girls will be in dark forest green and I’ll be in an ivory lace dress. I would like to use gorgeous deep vibrant autumn shades and a mixture of bloom sizes and foliage and for the flowers to have a slightly undone look but still look sophisticated. I hope I’m not asking too much!

This vibrant woodland bouquet via Preston Bailey features:  Eggplant Calla Lilies, Red Mini Gerbera Daisies, Rust Calla Lilies, Rubrum Orchids, Blue Thistles, Sunflowers, Wine Hypericum Berries, and Curly Willow Branches.  Happy Planning, Mindy


Regina’s Rustic Woodland Branch & Lily Bouquet

Regina writes:
Hi!!! I am getting married Sept.29th, 2012. It’s a rustic, outside wedding. My colors of Brown and Blue. I want to use twigs in my flowers mainly. Do you have any ideas for me? I know its different. 

Regina, twigs/branches are one of the best accents for a Rustic/Woodland Wedding Theme. They are so versatile making them easy to add to bouquets and centerpieces.  I started with an inspiration photo from Weddingbee that features Branches/Twigs, Garden Lilies, and Greenery.  I also included from our Wedding Design Ideas & Build a Bouquet Lines, our Natural French Lavender Bouquet and Rustic Mum & Lavender Bouquet.  You can wrap your bouquet in a sheer White Chiffon Ribbon or Natural Raffia.  Happy Planning, Mindy

DIY Fall Wedding Ideas

DIY is a term that is thrown about quite often.  We see it online, in magazines, and on tv. Many, many projects masquerade as DIY, but are really difficult to complete unless you have the experience of a professional. We like to keep it simple, and when we tell you that a project is DIY, we mean it! Above are some examples of DIY fall wedding ideas. They are all in fall wedding colors, but incredibly simple and inexpensive to create.  We have some pre-made bouquets tucked into mason jars for perfect wedding centerpieces, some curly willow and japanese lanterns that we just dropped into a large ceramic pot for an eye-catching addition to country wedding venues, and some preserved leaves that we arranged in an old rusty milk container. No cutting, gluing, or wiring involved! What can be easier than that? Whenever a budget bride calls us saying that she is working on her own do it yourself wedding, these are the ideas that offer.  Colorful, beautiful, bold, and lovely without the added stress and time that some DIY projects can create. Try some of these ideas and see for yourself!
