A Black, Ivory & Red Wedding…


Posted in Flowers by Jaime on February 14, 2008

I love this bouquet, not only because it’s unique, but because it’s so vintage yet so cool. 

They’re calling it an “heirloom bouquet”…call it what you will, this bouquet ROCKS!

“The muted burgundy tones of the cymbidium orchids integrated with deep brown chocolate cosmos are a throwback to Grandma’s silk flowers and broaches.

The fern curls add to the highly-stylized motives of the era, conjuring up the ever-popular music of swing bands while the silver-gilded leaves nod to the popularity of chrome in the mid-40s.

A finishing detail of soft feathers around the face of the bouquet calls to mind the flapper girls’ dresses but is made contemporary by the brightness of the magenta pink Kiko roses.” – www.yourweddingday.com
