November 3rd means there’s only fifty eight days left in 2017! What a crazy awesome year it has been for Bloomin’ Bouquets. Thinking back at 2017 one of our most challenging installations to date was the flower wall we put together for The Letter Magazine back in August. The Letter Magazine, founded by Lauren Taylor, is a bi-annual print publication inspiring everyday women. It is a publication with a lot of heart and a whole lot of class so we were thrilled to take part in the magazines celebration at the amazing Citizen Supply space at Ponce City Market. Our project was to make a flower wall, sounds easy enough right?! Not exactly, the logistics of the wall proved to be a bit more challenging than expected. However, after many hours of trial and error we successfully completed our install and it was fabulous.

Lauren + Michael were married at a picturesque church in downtown Dahlonega after the ceremony they celebrated at the equally stunning winery Montaluce. Lauren wanted her bouquet to be unique.   We were able to achieve Lauren's vision by making King Protea the focal point and keeping the stems long, creating the unique look she had envisioned.

We love being a part of special events around the city, especially when it's raising awareness for a good cause. Atlanta High Fashion Bridal: A Runway and Concert Benefit Event thrown by Atlanta Wedding and Event Professionals was created to to bring awareness to causes doing amazing work in our communities and showcase the amazing talent of Atlanta Wedding and Event Professionals to emphasize the importance of collaboration over competition, which creates an environment we can all thrive. It was a night of fashion, libations, and philanthropy. Bloomin' Bouquets had the fortune to make some dramatic accessories for the models to wear while they walked down the runway. The talented Nikki Loraine wrapped up the fashion show after which guests were invited to mingle and take part in a silent auction where one hundred percent of the proceeds went to The Giving Kitchen and Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund. At Bloomin' we are so thankful for the opportunity to flex our creative muscle and step out of the ordinary. Thank you to the Atlanta Wedding and Event Professionals for inviting us to take part in the event and a special shout out to Anastasia for styling the event and collaborating with us, you killed it girl!

 Just a few blocks from downtown Alpharetta on top of a hill sits an adorable little cottage Bloomin’ Bouquets now calls home. It took seven years for Bloomin’ to move out of a basement and into its very own space but oh was it worth the wait. One of my favorite details is all the natural light that flows in from every window filling the rooms. Of course like many things, the studio is a work in progress adding a plant here a picture there but it’s certainly an over due upgrade for the Bloomin’ team. Little details like our adorable aprons help breath life into the new space and show off the work of other creatives we’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with. We hope you'll come see it one day but until then you can check out some photos of the studio.

Greenery, the 2017 Pantone color of the year and an absolute favorite here at Bloomin’, also just happens to be a great color foundation for your wedding day. Greenery makes any setting more lush and enhances personals just the same. There are more creative ways to add green into your wedding than the usually runner - all greenery boutonnieres are a sweet touch to add to a handsome suit or tux (by the way, if your looking for a great place to rent a suit or tux check out The Black Tux, you wont be disappointed). Added greenery at a ceremony or reception can make you feel like your outside, without actually having to be. Lastly, adding springs of greenery to each guest place setting or escort cards is a fun and interesting way use greenery on your wedding day.

“The Truth About the Bridal Bouquet & Other Wedding Traditions”

There is something special about traditions. Knowing your parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents incorporated the same tradition into their weddings years before you makes a your wedding all that more special and personal. While, every bride is unique, there are several traditions we see time and time again, passed down generation to generation.  

  • Brides traditionally stand to left of their groom for a reason that dates back centuries. "Marriage by capture," according to Mr. Specktor from Reader’s Digest, was a common practice. A groom would literally steal his bride from her home. The groom would hold his bride with his left hand leaving his right for a sword fight if necessary. 
  • Bridal Bouquets, our favorite wedding tradition, have changed quite a bit over the years. Back in the day of the Great Plague bridal bouquets traditionally were made of herbs like garlic and dill to fight off disease. Luckily, medicine has improved and brides no longer need to cover themselves in garlic and vinegar to be healthy on their wedding day. Instead, brides opt for much better smelling roses or peony, thank goodness!
  • The classic white wedding dress was first popularized by Queen Victoria. Before the Queen, British nobility was know to wear flashy silver and gold embroidered fabric on their wedding day. Queen Victoria chose to go in a different direction. She wore an extravagant white gown embellished lace with flowers, we like her style, to stand out in the crowd of silver and gold. 
  • Vena amoris, the vein on the fourth finger on the left hand, traditionally know as the ring finger, was believed to connect directly to the heart. Turns out all veins in the human hand connect to the heart but hey, it makes for a beautiful tradition.
