In preparation for a fabulous affair... The Flowers!

I will be doing the flowers for a magical wedding coming in late june. I wanted to do a mock up to make sure I could prepare the perfect recipe for all the centerpiece arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and ceremony set up, as it is a large wedding. The flowers will be a little wild, a little old world, but overall glamorous. They needs to look rich, but still organic, vintage, charming, but still ultra sophisticated. The color scheme is to be silvery greens, dark burgundies, blacks, whites, but softened with dusty pinks and soft peaches. I am super excited about how these came out!:) I keep looking over at the arrangement with glee! All the centerpieces will be in the same lovely garden black urns and will sit upon a pile soft laces surrounded by gold mercury glass votives and vintage style lotus shaped votives in soft pinks and whites. If the bride likes it I will paint the number a glittery silver so it rests fabulously in it's little bird nest. I added a few soft feathers in the arrangements to bring in that old hollywood glamour that the Biltmore portrays and re-lives through it's history. Oh and little hidden butterflies amongst the flowers. The centerpiece is about 12-15 inches in height so it is still tall enough to work in the 40 foot ceiling ballroom but not so evasive as to block the views of the people at the table. I also made 2 different bouquets one a little wild garden like & one a bit more fancy both fabulous for the bridesmaids.... the Brides bouquet I think will consist of the fluffiest all white peonies and soft subtle greens....
I hope the pictures speak for themselves....
P.S. For those weddingbee fans this Glam is for Miss Glitter!
