Apryl and I just finished up personal flowers for a lovely bride this past weekend. She really wanted a wild, slightly natural look to fit with her informal nature and love of the outdoors.

About the color palette:
Rifting on our post from the other week about autumn weddings using less traditional ‘fall’ colors, this wedding had a palette that hinted toward the fall with chocolate cosmos and orange ilex berries but stayed light and airy feeling with gorgeous peach, ivory, and chartreuse cymbidium orchids.

A bouquet that’s light to hold: This is something a lot of brides might not think of, but it’s really nice when you have a light bouquet, your hands and arms don’t get tired!
Bouquets that have a lot of orchids are often very light because each flower is individually wired. Although this often increases the price because of the delicate and time consuming nature of wiring each flower, the results are worth it when you want something a little exotic and delicate looking that is a breeze to hold.

Carrying out the color theme: In the bridesmaid bouquets we carried the elegant slightly autumnal aesthetic with a bit more orange with the inclusion of orange mokara orchids and orange ilex berries. We also found some incredible light burgundy cymbidium orchids that fit the design perfectly.
