For those of you who are lucky enough to fly off to a tropical oasis this is for you. I envy you, being able to whisk away and be married in peace. The insanity of it all can get overwhelming and warm breezes and ocean would be just the ticket.
Even if you are not getting married in a tropical paradise you can incorporate a little bit of paradise into your wedding. Check out these lovely bouquets filled with vibrant bright colors.

It seems that the biggest theme component for the 2012 wedding season is RUSTIC. Just throw in some of your mom’s old mason jars, burlap, and wildflowers and you’re set for a good ol’ shindig.
But, to make it more memorable add in a bit of modern flare. Doesn’t have to be overly expensive decor or designer dresses. Don’t get me wrong designer dresses…… ahhh open the gates to heaven. But, their price tags make me sad.
I love the idea of spray painting antlers, white preferably, to add a modern flare. Or using some callas, roses, lisianthus or ranunculus to spice up the flowers.
Birch bark is another great add to your decor. Wrap you vases in them for a rustic charm. The list could go on and on.
For now feast your eyes on these ideas. Love, love, love the cake idea…. just saying
I have always wanted to do a wedding with lavender, not just the color itself but the actual flower. Lavender is a short lived annual or a herbaceous perennial. The smell is intoxicating and reminds me of freshly washed sheets.
There are many farmers who specialize in growing lavender: Prairie Lavender Farm, Woody Creek Lavender Farm, and Country Lavender Farm. Check out your local market for specialty soaps, blooms, plants, and many other products made from lavender.
Here is a little inspiration just for you. My favorite is the lavender wedding rice, much more eco-friendly than the bird exploding rice I should say.
As much as I love Valentine’s Day, choosing flowers for a heart day themed wedding can become a task within itself. For one thing you can go WAY over the top with hearts, red, pink, glitter, and that all over mushy gushy L-O-V-E. You could also lay low and just stick with a bunch of red roses and call it good. Whatever your heart desires your wedding day will be the most spectacular display of love.

These topiaries are my favorite.
Get ready for a red carpet….. of flowers that is. The most commonly used flower is the red rose so why not have it for your wedding. It’s classy, sultry, timeless and could be the perfect piece for your wedding day.

There are many colors to choose from for a winter wedding. Green, red, purple, brown, white. I would say that my favorite color to use for a winter wedding is…… BLUE. There are so many shades robins egg, navy, blue ice, turquoise, powder blue and the list goes on and on. Many colors also go well with blue but brown I would say is the best especially for winter. Use twigs and acorns to mix into your decor to add a whimsical feel. To add a touch of elegance spray paint them white and use some glitter. Glitter makes everything pretty.
These twigs are used for place cards. You could also make a special message tree where guests can write the bride and groom something and hang it on the tree.
