A New Season of Flowers

Massei Photography, Ava Clara Couture Bridal, Heather's Hair Design, Norfolk Wholesale Floral, The Water Table

Goodbye winter, hello spring! We're so excited for a new season of warm weather and all things floral. Without fail, every spring wedding season we see so many gorgeous garden inspired weddings and the preferred florists of Hampton Roads Wedding Guide are some of the best in the business. We're always WOWed by the work they do, like this amazing ceremony space at The Water Table designed by Norfolk Wholesale Floral. Take a look at some of our favorite ways to use flowers and a recent wedding that had an amazing floral display.

Brides this year are daring to be different this wedding season! They're choosing bouquets that are different and interesting, whether that's in the textures they're incorporating, or the sheer size! We love the look of cascading bouquets that are dripping with a vast array of flowers and greenery. 

Dress Up Your Wedding Arch

The Main Event by Emily

Wedding arches have made a HUGE resurgence in the past year and for good reason- they are a great way to display amazing flowers and interesting architectural design. Our friends at The Main Event by Emily designed the beautiful flowers for this wedding arch and we love the offset floral arrangements in lovely blues, green and white. 

Here are some amazing ideas from Martha Stewart Weddings to bring to your florist:

A Simply Beautiful Bouquet

Ryann Winn Photography, Lasting Impressions LLC

Sometimes simple is best. If bright colors aren't your thing and you really have your heart set on a traditional wedding, then a simple bouquet with neutral colors is perfect for you. You can make your bouquet stand apart with the addition of a colorful berry or greenery. These additions are still neutral and timeless, but will add a little something extra to your display. You can also incorporate these into your other decor, like your centerpieces or groomsmen boutonnieres. 
A Wedding Adorned in Florals

Ashley Kapic Photography

Bride Inga chose gorgeous florals from Jeff's Flowers, Of Course that were bold and bright with beautiful jewel tones. They were perfectly contrasted with the bridesmaid's light pink gowns. Not only did Jeff's Flowers, Of Course design such perfect bouquets, but their reception was so perfect. From the lovely sign welcoming their guests to the incredible greenery on the wall. To top it off, Inga had a beautiful floral crown to wear for the reception. Every floral detail was perfect.
