Planning a wedding out of state is never an easy feat, especially when trying to achieve a certain look. Bride Nancy realized this when she was planning her Atlanta wedding from Washington D.C. She selected Bloomin’ Bouquets for her wedding flowers and entrusted them to create an entire floral plan for her. On the top of her list of requests, Nancy made clear that she preferred flowers without petals.
Bloomin’ Bouquets opted to create a Pinterest board for Nancy so they could share ideas and create an overall look. When seeking out petal-less flowers, Bloomin’ Bouquets wanted to ensure that the flowers they did select complimented the look Nancy was hoping to achieve.
The wedding was held at Piedmont Driving Club and Bloomin’ Bouquets used Calla Lilies, Daffodils, Hyacinth, Dusty Miller and Kangaroo Paw to create the wedding bouquets, centerpieces and boutonnieres. None of these flowers have petals in the traditional sense. Also included in the flowers were Quince, Forsythia, Curly Willow and Orchid Oncidium. An exception to the petal rule was granted for the flowers girls, who were given rose petals to toss.
Bloomin’ Bouquets also decorated the chuppah for the Jewish ceremony. They used birch poles, Calla Lillies, Curly Willow and Quince to adorn it. The tallit (the cloth on top of the chuppah) was given as a gift by Nancy’s family to the groom David.
By using both online pin boards and working with Nancy’s mom, the perfect floral plan was created. Out-of-state brides shouldn’t have to worry about communicating their wedding requests. If the proper florist is selected, who is willing to listen to their desires, the final outcome will mirror exactly what they envisioned.
