Why You Need Bridal Bouquet Accessories

Why You Need Bridal Bouquet Accessories

Purple Handmade California Wedding

1) Flowers are great, but do they glitter? -Okay, so that might seem ridiculous, but there is an important point to be made here. Flowers are beautiful and if your wedding is focusing on simple decor, then you probably won't want any accessories that will be very showy, but adding small accessories or a little bit of dazzle to your bouquet can add a dimension that will personalize your wedding bouquet and look great in your wedding photos.

The first is using a formal bouquet holder which broken down to its most basic sense is florist foam on a stick. These are great if you are making your own bouquet and are easier for florist to shape and really make an artistically designed bouquet. The second is a wrap. This typically means you will be keeping and wrapping your flowers long stems with ribbon or some other wrapping appropriate material. This lends to a more casual wedding theme, but can also be made to be just as formal as a bouquet holder, just as a bouquet holder can be used to create a more casual bouquet. Bridal Bouquet Locket Charm Bracelet With these as your options it gives you plenty of room to personalize or glam up your bouquet. If you are using a wrap style and want to make your bouquet a little more personal you can choose to use something like a brooch that was your grandmothers as your something old and have it pinned to the ribbon or you can use something like the bridal bouquet locket charm featured above with an image of your groom or even a small wedding photo of your parents and then your new initial. What is great about this particular bouquet accessory is that it comes with a link bracelet so you can later wear the charm as a jewelry accessory!

Special Touch Flower Girl Baskets

 

 Special Touch Flower Girl BasketsStern Grove Wedding As one of the first to walk down the aisle, the flower girl is one of the first introductions to your wedding party look, so what you put your flower girl in can work to help set the tone. Flower girl dresses can be made to look like mini versions of the bridesmaid dresses, the wedding dress, or can be its own unique design that is in those wedding colors or wedding theme. One accessory that a flower girl can't go without is her flower basket! Like her dress, there are a variety of different designs you can choose from, but don't let yourself get too locked in to a typical flower basket and have some fun with it!

Flower Girl Basket with Embroidered Sheer Trim & Bows So, what are some options?

Taupe Pleated Silk Flower Basket

This flower basket (Taupe Pleated Silk Flower Basket) is not one that is necessarily out of the basket thinking, but it offers a put together look that will add style to your wedding. What is beautiful about this basket is that it offers a textured look, the cuteness of a bow, and a contrast to the starch white that is often featured in the flower girl look. So if you are looking to put your flower girl in white, we recommend using a colored basked like the one above to add dimension to your flower girl's color palette.

Burlap & Lace Flower Basket

Similarly to the taupe pleated flower basket, this lace and burlap basket offers up texture, color, and fashion. Additionally, it is completely one trend and works great across multiple wedding themes, including but not limited to country western, shabby chic, vintage, and fairy tale. With this in mind, one thing to look for when looking at a flower basket - just as with any wedding accessory - is to find one that adds to or otherwise incorporates your wedding theme. Thus, if you are having a beach themed wedding, then you will  want a beach oriented flower girl basket!

Then there are the non-basket flower baskets. A lot of brides are incorporating buckets or boxes instead of a basket. The above "Rose" flower basket is sort of in between in that it will be carried exactly like a basket, but its flower design sets it apart from its wicker basket kin. These are the type of flower baskets that really open the door for you to get creative.

How to Include Your Pet in Your Wedding

Your getting married. You are inviting another person to be your partner in life. Side by side, through thick and thin, ups, downs, happily ever after. BUT, you already have a handsome gentlemen growler or little lady yapper that has snuggled into your heart and you want him or her to be apart of your big wedding day! No big deal, go for it, but think it through!

First off, ask yourself some questions:

  • How well trained is your pup?
  • Will he or she be easily distracted by people, ribbons flying in the wind, or flower petals on the floor?
  • If you want your pup to be a part of your ceremony, can you trust the dog to not relieve him or herself or bark during the ceremony or say on the aisle way? Would it be a devastating or just a funny story if it did?
If you want your pup to be a part of your ceremony or wedding day, but cannot trust or rely on him or her to be quiet and on que, then you may want to rethink including your dog, unless you are open to some spontaneous barking or possible disasters. Or look at ways that include your dog, but keeps him or her away from the wedding day spotlight. Areas you can incorporate your canine bud in your wedding:

Wedding Woes that can Wait

Planning a wedding seems to happen all at once - all of the decisions feel equally important and relevant when you're first engaged and you're caught in a flurry of congratulations and furious planning. Before you drive yourself crazy with details and dahlias, what tasks can be delegated down or saved for later? Here's a short list of tasks and tribulations that you can put on the backburner:   Picking the Bridal Party
Many a retrospective and once-overly-enthusiastic bride will tell you this: don't pick your bridal party too early. If you're still more than a year away from the wedding, keep your #1 pick for Maid of Honor and Flower Girl under wraps. Relationships change, people move away or begin doctorate programs. While your bridal party has only one responsibility - showing up and wearing nice, pre-selected clothes - you want to be sure that the men and women in your line are the friends and family you really want behind you on your wedding day. There's no harm in just waiting it out! Snapping Engagement Photos
Even though they're called "engagement photo shoots" they don't have to be planned and finished within the first few weeks of your engagement. The point of an engagement photo shoot is to showcase your relationship in an environment in which you feel comfortable during a particularly happy time in your life. Some couples choose to use these photos in their "save the dates" or wedding invitations, but by no means is that a requirement. If you're already overburdened with other wedding woes, don't feel that you have to squeeze an engagement photo shoot in as well. Then again, if you could really use an afternoon of looking pretty and exploring your favorite museum or tide pool with your puppy and fiancé, go right ahead!   Selecting Wedding Gifts
Gifts are fun, and pre-planning gifts for your wedding can be just as enjoyable, but it can also take a lot out of you. Registering takes way more energy than you might think, and registering too early can spell disaster for your "early bird" wedding planning ideals. If you register more than a few months ahead of when your invitations go out, you run the risk of items being discontinued and matching dish sets being broken up. My advice is to go through retailers' websites, mark items that you're interested in, and put that list aside for later. Save the physical registration process for just a few months before the big day to save an even bigger hassle later.

Finding the Right Flower Girl Gifts

Selecting Beautiful Flower Girl Gifts

Flower Girl Gifts

Showing your appreciation for a bridesmaid or any other member of the wedding party is usually pretty simple. Men like useful, practical gifts while any bridesmaid would be happy with a piece of unique jewelry to wear on your wedding day. But what about the littlest member of your wedding team? How should you select flower girl gifts? What if she’s too young to appreciate jewelry? Too old for a coloring book? Here are a few hints to help you with your flower girl gifts shopping: Be aware of your flower girl’s age when deciding on which flower girl gifts to select for her. Very young girls might not appreciate a special trinket now, so a wall chart (to measure her as she grows) or some other pretty wall decal might be just the right fit. Select something personalized for her that she’ll grow to love. Other flower girls gifts that work wonderfully for the flower tot are things like coloring books and sticker packs – items that will keep her entertained before and after the ceremony. Older flower girls usually regard their title very seriously. If you can, include her in the matching gifts (if you choose to do matching gifts) you select for your bridesmaids. Flower girl gifts for the older flower girl should be as grown-up as they can. If you’re worried that she isn’t quite ready for the gifts you’ve selected for your maids, think about finding flower girl gifts that come close. Think about a bracelet or necklace in your wedding colors with her initial engraved on it. Something personalized that she can wear during the ceremony will make her proud to be your flower girl.
