The Hard Hat Bride: Floral Fetish Part III

March 31st, 2011

As they say, it’s all in the details!  Check out how to include floral accents into all the details of your big day; from overhead floral, chuppahs, place settings and more…

First is the thumbnail photo from Martha Stewart Weddings, floral design by LMD Floral. White rose petals with potted lavender and soft hued potted plants in antique concrete pots lead the bridal party to the gorgeous, loose garden rose chuppah. Who wouldn’t want to be married underneath that?

Row1: Passion flower boutonnieres from Flowerwild; An example of floral height done right by LMD Events- the tropical foliage was hung over long rows of tables that were simply decorated with votives. This use of height adds dimension and drama to the event space that results in a cohesive look; Same goes for the birch trees that Ariella Chezar has put up throughout the tent in picture three. This also provides great drama and structure while still giving an ethereal feel of being outside.

Row 2: Mindy Rice has decorated long tables with various arrangements while simultaneously hanging glass bell jars filled with pink flowers; Ariella Chezar ties back the gorgeous linen entry to the event space with coral roses and vintage ribbon; Arielle Chezar (again, shocker) dresses up the escort card table with miniature violets potted in  Campo di’Fiore terra cotta pots;  For her wedding, Martha Stewart Weddings Editor Darcy Miller greeted her gentleman guests with stephanotis and bay leaf boutonnieres.

Row 3: Ariella Chezar’s take on an oyster raw bar decorated with citrus fruits. Ariella dresses up the bride’s chair at the head table. Another gorgeous chuppah courtesy of Style me Pretty. Elizabeth Messina photographs an olive tree that was used as a “Wishing Tree” where each guest wrote a wish for the brides and groom and hung it from the tree’s branches. Some brides have chosen to hang the escort cards in a similar fashion.

Row 4: Modern ceremony “altar” with orchids and branches by Ariella Chezar. Delicate place setting accented with lavender courtesy of Style me Pretty. Arielle Chezar decorates church pews and alter with local ferns. Lastly, Arielle decorates a miniature cake with oak leaves, acorns, and cabbage roses.

Next week we will conclude our Floral Fetish series with unique arrangement elements… my favorite…
