This week we will focus primarily on floral! From receptions to bridal bouquets to boutonnieres, it is Floral Week here on Modern Wedding .org. Each day there will be a post featuring one specific color, to better help brides in search of flowers to match their palette, or get some inspiration from hues. We also like to think outside the box, here at ModWed, so we will steer clear of peonies and roses! It’s time for a new take on Wedding floral.
Today’s Theme: Yellow
Feature Flowers: Daffodils, Sunflowers, Chamomile.
Yellow is a color that can go many different ways in your palette. It can be the focal point, or it can be a complimentary color. It can be apart of a bold, cool palette, or blend into a warm subtle palette. Here are some color combination ideas for yellow.
Bouquets are the most iconic floral element in a wedding, both the Bridal bouquet and the Bridesmaids’ bouquets. There are plenty of yellow flowers that are much more original and unique than the traditional peonies. They are also much cheaper and budget friendly. I think they make much more of a statement, after all, Sunflowers and Daffodils are just related with the world happiness! see also : Fall wedding flowers
And for the reception, how about a unique take on some classic flowers. Lemons along with yellow lilies and roses work wonderfully together, as seen by these beautiful centerpieces by Yvonne Design! With the branches and the birds, it’s so unique. see also : Wedding flowers bouquets
Pomanders are a popular trend at the moment, whether they are held by the flower girl, or hung on a post as a decoration lining a path, or on the edge of the chairs at the ceremony. They are often made of a variety of fresh flowers, but you can also make them from tissue paper for longer lasting decor.
DIY Detail: Create your own tissue paper pomanders! Much more practical, and totally budget friendly. Check out this amazing post over on the Ruffled Blog.
