Rustic Orange Wedding ~ Alisha’s Inspiration Board

Alisha writes: My fiance and I are having a fall wedding so our color theme will be burgundy (David’s Bridal Apple Red) orange, chocolate brown, and we will be using burlap and jute. Our flower budget is low.  I will be DIYing everything but since I have no prior experience, I would like simple round but beautiful bouquets.

Since you are going for DIY wedding and want to keep it simple – we recommend starting with a pre-made bouquet and simply adding additional flowers to it! You can complete the look by wrapping the bouquet stems with burlap and jute.

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.

Peacock Quinceanera Party ~ Rachel’s Inspiration Board

Rachel writes: I am not having a wedding. It is a quinceanera for my daughter. The date is set for November 15, 2014. The theme is “Peacock”. colors are light blue, lime green, purple, royal blue, accent color is gold. The main flower is the Calla Lilly, but I am not sure what other flowers would go with the Calla since it is such an elegant flower, just by itself is gorgeous. I do have the peacock feathers to go with it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Love these colors!  Although we picked a bouquet for your board – the arrangement can still be used for a centerpiece design, and all the items in it look great with calla lilies. You can either add callas to this mix, or swap out the roses. Add a gold vase and some purple table decor to tie in all the colors.

Rustic Lavender Wedding ~ Tamara’s Inspiration Board

Tamara writes: My colors are eggplant and wheat my girls are in eggplant and the guys will be in dark khaki suits. I will have an antique gold gown. We are decorating with burlap, lace, wine bottles, and blue mason jars. Very country, rustic, laid back. I was thinking lavender and babies breath, but I’m not sure what else to use. I like dusty millers and a softer palette, but not sure how it will go with the dark purple. Help!! :-)

Light blue, lavender, and eggplant with a mix of greenery and gold accents is actually quite a striking palette! Hopefully this board will show you that with them all together.
