“We would like your help suggesting ideas for a bride’s bouquet, wrist corsages for my attendants and boutonnieres for the groomsmen. We are keeping to a limited budget, but don’t want to look cheap. The attendants and groomsmen are our siblings and we are asking them to mingle with the guests to insure everyone is having a good time so their corsages and boutonnieres will be the only distinction that they are part of the wedding party. We will have six young ladies for flower girls and would like to have hair clips for them.
My colors are chocolate brown, ivory or cream and a sage green. Your website looks great, your phone staff have been most helpful and we look forward to learning your ideas and creating a wonderful look while staying in budget.”
Ann, I created your inspiration board with flowers in brown, ivory, and green. I think adding some peacock feathers would be a beautiful and inexpensive way to jazz up the arrangements. I included a photo of a boutonniere featuring peacock feathers as well as a hair piece — so pretty and will look great in the flower girl’s hair! For the bouquet, why not create it with either brown roses or ranunculus, vanilla cream roses, and green cymbidium orchids. For the corsages, you could make them like the boutonniere shown and simply and an extra flower (the cream rose perhaps). I hope this helps!
