UPDATEBranching Out Floral & Event Design will be making my flower inspirations come to life!  Debby is doing all of our flowers and some other decor elements for the wedding.  I knew when she said that she loved Style Me Pretty that she would totally get my style and vision.  I'm so excited about my flowers now!

I actually loved all of the florists I met with, in the end Debby had the most complete proposal with so many details that I could actually envision the whole wedding in my head.  But I wanted to give credit to Lilac & Co, Kabloom Flowers, and Sahana Floral who all had portfolios of beautiful beautiful work.


My bouquet will be all red (since red is the traditional Chinese bridal color).  I like how the monochromatic bouquets below have tonal touches:

Bouquet of tulips, anemones, ranunculus, begonias, and bouvardia.

Bouquet of orchids, roses, calla lilies, and spider mums.

Bouquet of roses and parrot tulips. 

The bridesmaids will carry all hot pink bouquets.

Hydrangea and roses. 

Peonies and roses. 

I need to be careful that these medium pinks don't cross the boundary to be more purple than pink.  All bouquets (bride's and bridesmaids') will be wrapped in apple green satin ribbon that matches the bridesmaid dresses and groomens'/groom's ties.

M has expressed his dislike for flowers on men, hence no boutonnieres at this wedding.  M will be sporting a green pocket square instead. 

And because I like to make everything more complicated than necessary, instead of traditional wrist corsages done with ribbon, I'm thinking about possibly doing something like these for the mothers and grandmother (with red blooms for the mothers, and pink bloom for the grandmother):


I've been reading Style Me Pretty way too much and somewhere along the line, started to lean towards the eclectic, somewhat vintagey, centerpiece look.  I've been collecting milk glass pieces (like M's grandmother's cake stand) in hopes of centerpieces like these:

I love the monochromatic look in each vessel.  Depending on the number of vases per table, the centerpiece will be either pink, orange, green, or a combination of two or three of those monochromatic arrangements, with added green apples and tealight candles for the smaller centerpieces.

And if I can managed to get my hands on additional milk glass cake stands or some larger bowls, I'd love to do smaller versions of this type of arrangement with apples (think more apples, less flowers, no pale pinks, and definitely without the dark green element):
