Even though it’s the Christmas season it’s never too early to think about Spring. (Yes I am dreaming of warm sunny days while I sit here freezing in Massachusetts.) While doing some online Christmas shopping I stumbled upon some beautiful Spring Bridal Bouquets from House of Stemms.
This vibrant Spring Bridal Bouquet is my favorite. I love the combination of the blues, pink, and lavender hues. The bouquet features a hand-tied bridal composition of pink tulips, luxury pink roses with blue and purple hyacinths, collared with cordyline leaves.
Roses and Mini Callas Bouquet
This sweet Pink Rose and Mini Calla Bouquet is so romantic. It’s a classic and never goes out of style. Perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding.
Earthy Bridal Bouquet
I love the uniqueness of this vibrant Earthy Bridal Bouquet. It features Ranunculus, Lisianthus, Anemones, Succulents, English Ivy and other greens, all hand-tied with Rafia.
If you want your bridal bouquet to pop with color try this Blue Orchid Bouquet. This unique bouquet features purple Bombay Dendrobium Orchids dyed blue.

Who knew that by only using two flowers you could have such a dreamy wedding bouquet? This exquisite bouquet features large leaf dusty miller and light pink peonies. It truly is the ultimate girly wedding bouquet.
We also have the flower girl’s matching head wreath and flower ball. The little girls head wreath is made out of light pink spray roses and lacey leaf dusty miller. So incredibly feminine and romantic.

I love the cool gray/greens against the peach & pink hues
When it comes to wedding flowers and bouquets, the prettiness factor is in the presentation. Today we are showing you two unique ways to present flowers so they will look their very best.
Carnations have typically been given a bad name as a cheap filler flower. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though; in fact, it’s an advantage for crafty brides embarking on this charming DIY, especially in large quantities.
These paper-wrapped carnations are as sweet as ice cream. Print carnation cone template onto heavyweight paper, and cut out. Shape into a cone, and fasten at tabs using double-sided tape. Bind stems with floral tape, and set inside cone.
And, secondly, have you ever seen burlap + tulips look so beautiful together? These would make beautiful bridesmaid bouquets!
You’ll Need :
TIP : When you pick up your flowers at the grocery store florist, ask them for some water tubes. It will help to keep the bouquet fresh. It is not absolutely necessary, but it will help if they will be out of water for more than an hour.

There are no etiquette rules that state your bridal bouquet has to be made of flowers. If florals are too feminine and not your thing, or if you just want something different why not carry a bouquet made of buttons and brooches.
The hand-tied bouquet continues its reign as the most popular bouquet style as brides opt for a tailored and natural look to their wedding flowers. A fresh bunch of flowers gathered and wrapped in a wide satin ribbon or lace presents the look of simple elegance. Brides wishing to up the glam of this otherwise simple look can embellish the bouquet with brooches, pins, and crystals.
Why not not embrace the new trend: unique greenery is IN. Use full and textured leaves to fill out a centerpiece for a lush, natural look or add natural beauty to a bouquet.
As a perk: the more greenery you have in your wedding florals, the fewer pricy flowers you’ll need to make a visual impact!
Check out these pretty filler greens:
Some other green ‘filler’ plants to ask your floral designer about are:
* Queen Anne’s Lace
* Cordyline Green Tii
* Cordyline Black Tii
* Cordyline Mixed Leaves
* Cordyline Mixed Tip
Ask your floral designer to show you unique filler greens that are grown locally and organically, and don’t forget that some flowers like Bells of Ireland provide gorgeous, unique greens on their tall stems.
Lush and plush white peonies with a sage green twist…
Aren’t these bouquets so cute! They would be perfect for flower girl bouquets.
Here is a fun tutorial from Bubble and Sweet to make your own Lolli-Cake Bouquet. These are not just for weddings actually and would be great for any type of party with kids…birthday parties, Easter, Halloween, Christmas etc. Make them different colors for the season…such as Easter make them pastel, Halloween make them black and gold and for Christmas green and red.
