Vintage Wedding Flowers ~ Lauren’s Inspiration Board

Lauren writes:  Hello- I am looking for help with my wedding bouquets and centerpiece flowers. My colors are going to be emerald green and champagne. Since my wedding will be in the summer, I would also like some color in the bouquets such as peach or light pink. I am getting married outside and the reception will be in a historic chapel. I want a nice warm glow so I am planning on having some lighted curly willow in the centerpieces and then adding volume with un-lighted curly willow. Thanks!

Style Inspiration from Top Wedding Designers

Any bride can dream about having a designer wedding gown.  And why wouldn’t it be a dream come true to have a beautiful, high-end dress styled by fashion designers who dress the rich and famous like Beyonce, Kate Hudson, Victoria Beckham, The Kardashians and Michelle Obama?

While the glossy wedding magazine pages and our pinterest boards are filled with countless celebrity and designer styles we can stop dreaming and start putting these inspiration images to work.  That is right, if you can’t have your own designer labeled wedding gown why not borrow some style inspiration from your favorite designer?

A recent post on therichest.com, “The Top 10 Most Popular Wedding Dress Designers”, showcases the who’s who among bridal fashion designers.  Lets see what types of style and wedding ideas we can snag from these A list names.

Hayley Paige

  • Modern, fun, fresh
  • Touch of refinement
  • Polished silhouettes

Hayley Paige is the perfect style profile for a modern, chic wedding.  Wedding decor will be sophisticated, well put together like Paige’s silhouettes with fresh, clean design and decor elements.  Calla lily bouquets and flower arrangements or submersible arrangements are the right combination of modern style and refinement to be paired with this wedding look.

Carolina Herrera with Afloral Cream Rose Bouquet

Carolina Herrera

  • Classic, traditional
  • Lack of fuss
  • Dressed the first ladies from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama

This style profile is for a traditional, romantic wedding.  Decor items will be kept simple and not overly complicated or over done.  Think of centerpieces composed of one or two types of wedding flowers and paired well in classic vase choices with softly lit votive candles as accents.  Wedding flowers are kept simple with the classic beauty of roses in pink, white or cream, red.

  • High style
  • Wide cascading trains
  • Dressed supermodels such as Miranda Kerr, Bar Refaeli and Doutzen Kroes

The high style profile is over the top, high-end style.  Wide, cascading trains demand attention.  Wedding decor will have to be taken to the same level.  Tall and large flower arrangements will catch guests eye adorned with hanging crystals and garlandWedding bouquets can also mirror the drama and theatrics of wedding gown trains, cascading bouquets are a re-emerging trend that could fit well within this profile.

Ines di Santo with Vintage Rose Corsage

Ines di Santo

  • Bridal Couture
  • Femininity
  • Attention to originality, construction

This style profile is all about femininity and the beauty of romance.  The vintage wedding theme is a perfect pairing with di Santo’s style.  Wedding decor will be styled with attention to detail and originality in focal points popular in vintage wedding themes right now.  Metallics in gold and silver are sophisticated accents to romantic, lush wedding flowers like traditional roses, anemones, ranunculus in muted feminine hues.

While most of us will never be as lucky to walk down the aisle on our wedding day in a designer, couture wedding gown we can still learn a thing or two from our favorite designer.  Keeping pinning and flipping the pages of celebrity stylists and then sit back and examine why you love their looks.  Do you love the elements of classic style, modern and chic or vintage with a touch of femininity?
