Dress Inspired Bouquet {Part 2}

May 19, 2011


Super thrilled to be featured on Style Unveiled again today! In a previous post I talked about the dress I chose for the bouquet challenge. Here's the bouquet I designed, inspired by the gorgeous dress from BHLDN. 

A little description of what I created:

I dreamed up a rustic chic bride that wanted something a little more eco-friendly than the typical bouquet. Her bouquet consists of Balsa wood flowers with fresh dusty miller. The wood is eco-friendly and a lovely rustic element. It contrasts the soft ruffly lace, and at the same time plays up the dainty and feminine aspect of it. To add a vintage glam look, a few balsa buds were painted gold - a little touch inspired by the dress' gilded details.

We had no boundaries with regards to creating our designs, so I went a bit out of the box and didn't use all-fresh flowers. Instead I used fresh greens of dusty miller and balsa wood flowers, which can be reused and kept as a little wedding keepsake. I'm so honored to have been asked to take part in this super fun project! The ladies over at Style Unveiled are such an awesome team and sure know how to come up with fresh, inspiring posts for their readers.
