Chika’s Green, Burgundy, and Ivory Wedding Inspiration Board

“I am having troubles trying to create and piece together my bouquet. My colors are a hunter/emerald green, burgundy and ivory. I love phalaenoposis orchids and anemone flowers. My dresses will be dark green for my bridemaids and ivory for myself. Can you help me to figure out which ones to purchase and how exactly to incorporate the orchids as the stems have multiple buds??”

Chika, I created your inspiration board with flowers in green, cream/ivory, and burgundy. I made sure to include orchids and anemone. I think the bouquets would look great made up with vanilla roses, cream anemones, green bells of ireland, and burgundy orchids. For the orchids, you can either clip the top of the stem down behind one of the blooms and use only up to that point of the flower in the bouquets, or simply use the wired stem to shape the several orchid blooms into your bouquet (bending and weaving the flowers). I hope this helps!
