So now that the bride has been covered, we thought we’d discuss blooms for the groom…and guests. We love the idea of not only outfitting your groom and groomsmen in flower accessories, but carrying it through to your wedding ‘vips’. It is a thoughtful touch to give your immediate family a bit of handmade love, but it also helps alert the photographer to who the key family members are. Let your photographer know that anyone wearing your special flower should be in a good share of the candid reception shots.
There have been so many cool updates to boutonnieres and corsages, that it is hard to chose just one! But remembering the style rule of ‘create a story’ you should make sure the effect contributes to the over all stylistic theme that you are going for. Here are some of our favorite looks by style.
These sugary sweets from Sarah Culleton are a delicate little treat. You guests will be endeared by the vintage findings and the cute fabric mixes. I love the idea of guests using these as bookmarks after the wedding! Usage: Romantic Brides and Vintage Brides.
The look of dried flowers and frost bitten leaves would be great for a fall or winter wedding. These Twigs and Honey accessories have a pale beauty to them for a snow wonderland theme. Usage: Eco Brides and Hippie Brides.
For the classic prepster, Emerson Made pins are a-class. There little little guys are so fun in bunches! Usage: Preppy Brides and Classic Brides.
For the no frills couple, these Nimbler Grove flowers are beautiful and architectural. With such a simple design, you can really punch up the color quotient. Usage: Modern Brides and Rock & Roll Brides.
