Katie’s Sangria and Green Wedding Inspiration Board

Katie writes:
“Hi, I’m getting married May 29th, 2010. I need help with picking flowers. I don’t know alot about flowers. I’m highly allergic to pollen, so I’m trying to find flowers with low pollen spray. I haven’t seen any silk flower bouquets I really like. My colors are Sangria, which is a dark reddish purple, and Clover green. I need to find bouquets for myself, my bridesmaids, and the boutonnieres. Please help!!!
Thank you, Katie”

Katie, I created your inspiration board with flowers in green and violet — which matched the Sangria color nicely. You could get the purple, pink, and green ranunculus pre-made bouquet for yourself, and the green or purple green one for the bridesmaids, or you could select single stem flowers and create the bouquets yourself. If you did that, why not make them using violet roses, green hydrangea, green bells or ireland, and violet day lilies. Wrap a colored ribbon around the stems to complete the look and accent that with green pins. For the boutonnieres, you could simply cut down the violet rose buds or the bells of ireland and use those. I hope this helps!

  1. I LOVE the bouquet in the top right hand corner! These are my colors for my wedding I am having in May of next year. I did not see this bouquet on the website to purchase. Is it available to purchase online?

    1. Hi Haley,
      You are correct…this bouquet is no longer available, but it was simply constructed with silk ranunculus. We have a large selection of many colors that you could design your own. http://bit.ly/iyw2eo Thanks Mindy
