Dreamy Downtown Columbus Wedding

Purple Wedding Inspiration

This stunning wedding was held in the beautiful Downtown Columbus Athletic Club founded in 1912. The gorgeous bride, Ivana, was not shy when it came to incorporating a bold purple hue into her special day. The bridesmaids wore dazzling royal dresses and carried gorgeous, traditional style, hand-tied bouquets of purple hydrangea, pale peach roses and burgundy calla lilies. Ivana’s bouquet was softened version of the bridesmaids bouquets using only a touch of burgundy calla lilies along with white lisianthus, white stock and pale peach and pink roses.

What a great time to get engaged, love is all around, family and friends you may not get to see often, it’s the time of year that everyone comes together and everyone just simply loves.

We wanted to share with you, regardless of your own personal style, 3 projected floral trends for 2017 to consider when you start planning the big day!

Floral prints continue to be on the rise – Whether it’s in your linens, your bridesmaids dresses or even your own dress, you will continue to see more and more colors and floral patterns available for you to choose from for whichever area you want to accentuate with a bit of feminine flair.

You may wonder what your flower bouquets would look like with a floral printed dress. Fear not! We will show you an idea of what you could pair specifically with this dress. If you have a floral printed dress, your best bet is going to be to pull out one color from the dress and base your flowers on that one solid color so that it doesn’t appear too busy against the dress.

For the love of France – This wedding trend is inspired by elegance and class. Brides are combining elements from both French Country and formal Parisian Design to create a stunning French inspired classy wedding. The colors increasingly popular that are associated with this look include deep rich colors such as red and burgundy, graphite grey and chocolate which are often offset by pastels like misty blue, champagne gold, pale pink and sage.

The flowers shown above are Red Garden Roses, Rice Flower, Silver Dollar, Blue Muscarri, Millet, Burgundy Dahlia, chocolate Orchid and Sahara Roses.

Tropical Paraides – You will see a lot more tropical inspired weddings all around, not just in Hawaii. This refreshing trend is fun and relaxing. The flowers you’ll find pairing with tropical inspired linens or dresses are calla lilies, birds of paradise, pincushion protea, freesia, celosia and cymbidium orchids along with a wide variety of foliages.

The flowers shown above are orange Calla Lilies, Birds of Paradise, Celosia, pink Freesia, yellow Pincushion Protea and Green Cymbidium Orchids.

That wraps up 3 upcoming 2017 Wedding Trends that we wanted to share with you! We also have available on our website several free organizing and planning tools to help plan your day. Often times brides have no idea what flowers cost or even factor that into their budget at times, but we created a wedding flower budget calculator that’s easy to use and will give you an idea of a flower price range based on the amount of people in the wedding, who you will need flowers for that you didn’t even think of and even centerpieces.

Check out the FREE Flower Budget Calculator here.

We also took the time to compile 9 different cost effective wedding packages for the bride that’s on a strict budget. Just because you have a budget to stay within doesn’t mean you have to omit flowers for your entire wedding! Our packages are fully customizable when it comes to color and most packages can accommodate any wedding color scheme.
