BOUQUET BREAKDOWN

It's a beautiful, snow filled Wednesday here in Winnipeg + we are throwing it back to our branding shoot in October with this bouquet breakdown. We got the scoop from floral + event designer (also Vendor Guide member!) Lauren Wiebe of Stone House Creative so you can get the look!

From Lauren... Playing with your colour palette can be one of the most fun and creatively rewarding aspects of planning your wedding. Gone are the days of choosing one main colour and sticking it with white. Weddings today are showcasing a broader colour palette, incorporating a range of tones, along with different textures or metallics to create a palette with depth and life to it. It's important to remember that just because you may have five different colours in your overall palette doesn't mean you need to splash them into every aspect of the wedding design - layer in touches here and there, and the overall look will come together.

For this bouquet, I chose to keep a more feminine palette working with the ever-popular blush as the base, but adding in some vibrancy with these amazing coral garden roses - they are one of my absolutely favourite varieties!. I wanted to add in some depth, so I chose smokebush foliage - that darker, plummy leaf, along with the black privet berries, purple trachelium, and touches of purple astrantia as a filler. When you're planning your flowers, you'll want to think about texture and shape as well as the colours. I love the whispy, botanical vibe that touches of white veronica give this bouquet. Finally, I added in touches of jasmine foliage - when things are getting a little too much, I find it's best to place in a sold-coloured, richly toned leaf to ground the design.
