Hi Vicky, after I put some serious thoughts into the flower design, I've made quite changes in my original ideas. The major change is that I now would like two separate themes for the ceremony and reception.
I want the best of both worlds :) I absolutely love your very unique, Waiheke-like designs. At the same time I can't give up on the princess-like flower design.
Instead of the original trailing bouquet idea, a classic posy of rose buds & blossoms + few greenery + a ribbon like these;
My beaded designed dress top shouldn't be completely covered up by a big bouquet. Yet a too small bouquet would emphasise my broad-ish shoulder, so not too small. Below bouquet-body ratio is ideal;
On the right is the bridesmaids' dress (daffodil yellow). Do you think this colour suits ok to all other flower designs? To differentiate them from me, maybe no ribbon on their bouquet.
There will be one or two bridesmaids. The number will be confirmed next month.
This is still not decided...
We're sill working to find out whether to go for a big / small flower crown.
This is the groom's total look on the day (except for the frown face :) ).
Necktie is champaign colour. Bestman / groomsman will dress similarly. I guess their buttonhole flower should match up with my bouquet?
I want for them but neither mothers wants it due to convenience reason.. so we don't go for this :(
Michelle found this arch frame (2.4m high). Is this a good size? I really don't like any part of the frame to be exposed like below design. So the entire frame needs to be covered up in greenery and flowers I guess.
I really like this arch style below (not the colour) - some vines and greenery hanging from the top, swinging in the air.
I really like below balance between greenery, roses and the big white flower (not sure what that is). They used quite sensitive, delicate-looking greenery as well which is nice.
As for the colour(s) of pink, below scheme is nice too;
In the end I decided to not go for this one.
We want 'fullness' of petals in the air as we walk down the isle. I wonder if a cone of petals each is not enough? Maybe we need a big cone each + a basket of them.
As opposed to the ceremony look, reception should be more Waiheke-like - colourful, unique, free-spirit.
I love below colour schemes and looks. Perhaps we could use them for the tables? Vases don't have to be the crystal vintage one but anything else that suits.
Although I still like my original cake flower idea (below left), more colourful flowers (right) could also work;
That's it for now. What do you think? :)
