We’ve been having a few conversations lately with brides looking for trailing or teardrop bouquets. A natural looking trailing bouquet is a difficult thing–years ago bouquets were hot glued into plastic holders and wired at unnatural angles, which got the desired shape at the expense of simplicity and charm. These days virtually all bouquets are hand tied, and rather than have flowers coming out at unnatural angles, we use materials that naturally trail, like hanging amaranthus, jasmine vines, trailing ivy, and even ribbons and lace.
We’ve put together a pinterest board of inspiring trailing bouquets, from tidy posies with long ribbons to voluminous bouquets of cascading foliages and vines. Find more examples on our Pinterest page, just click through the images to visit the board.
Come visit us at the Spectacular Vintage Wedding Fair this weekend at the Ambassador Hotel in Military Hill in Cork City! We’ll have some of our wedding work on display, as well as be on hand to answer any questions and check our availability for 2014. The event is on from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday, hope you’ll stop by to say hello!
We are in the height of the peony season at the moment, any late May, June, or early July 2014 brides may want to pay attention! Especially loving the big, blousy, single flowering coral coloured peonies which are super trendy this year. We are doing lots of colour pop coral bouquets, but the pale pinks and white peonies are still as popular as ever.
Check out our peony board over at Pinterest where we’ve collected all these amazing images. Also watch our own wedding flower gallery for pics of June bridal bouquets featuring peonies and lots more summer colour, coming soon!
Just uploading some new photos of spring weddings, here’s a shot of the bride’s wall-of-flowers style bouquet from a gorgeous gypsophila themed wedding from a few weeks back. More photos of the church and venue to be uploaded over the weekend!
Lots of fresh flowers, flowering plants, and Easter decorations and gifts in the shop to celebrate the Easter holiday!
We will be open on Good Friday 9am to 6pm, Holy Saturday 10am to 5pm, and closed on Easter Monday. We will be open again at 9am Tuesday morning.
Have a happy and peaceful Easter weekend!
