Stars and Stripes

August 9, 2011 No Comments by Nicole

I’m really digging the feel that thick black and white stripes add to a bouquet. It’s just an easy way to punch up your wedding day flowers at a low cost. If you feel that your bouquet is lacking due to budget restrictions, go ribbon shopping ASAP! Check out these beautiful floral masterpieces for inspiration. The bow on this first one is spectacular!

I love how the designer of this bouquet left several ribbon ends hanging. Imagine walking down the aisle holding this, the flow of the ribbon will gently fly around and make for a beautiful presentation!

This bouquet is so simple but packs a punch, don’t you think? Large peonies will cut down on your budget because you will need less blooms. Tie on a short thick ribbon and volià!  (PS the trim on this ribbon makes it extra snazzy :) )

 This ribbon is different from the others because it is slightly see through. This makes for a less dramatic look if you want something a little more understated.

I love envelope liners, to me it is a worthy expense! Then again, I am not what you would call “frugal”.

 I absolutely love this cake! It is perfect for the bride looking for simplicity but doesn’t want something boring, and it has just the slightest feminine touch with the bows…. amazing!

 This would be perfect for a winery themed wedding for something a bit different than the usual decor.

I love this look for a bridal shower or bachelorette party! I remember seeing this in the pages of Brides Magazine a few years ago. I just remember thinking, when I get married, I hope someone throws me a shower that looks like that (insert pouty face)!

Another take for my friends planning my future bridal shower. Sorry ladies, I know I’m rude, I can’t help it.
