With my December 2014 wedding, I’m going for a semi-formal theme that surrounds Disney’s animated movie “Frozen”, with silver, soft ivory, and varying shades of dusty blues as the colors. There will also be a ton of glitter and metallic elements mixed in, with snowflakes, mirrors, rhinestones, pearls, clear beads, faux icicles, and epsom salt used heavily in the decor. For the bouquets, I’d ideally like to incorporate some of those same elements with ivory roses and perhaps a blue winter flower.
Help! I want to design glamorous centerpieces and have no clue were to start! I feel so lost I have no clue what flowers would be good for a December wedding or what colors would begin to look good together. I love the colors purple and silver I will say I love purple in many different shades, but eggplant and lavender are my favorites! I would like to add a touch of pink and green as well. I also like glamorous as far as a little bling or pearls in the arrangement. Could you please lead me down the path to arranging a fabulous centerpiece. I would like to see tall and small for different arrangements. If you could also include how many flowers you use in the arrangement please. I also love the idea of lights of with candles as the lighting. I know I know I’m all over the place lol I can see it in my head but I don’t want it to be a mess. Also could you help me with bridesmaids bouquet and boutonnieres . I do know that I love roses and lilies or whatever you think would look good together. Thanks in advance signed lost and confused
