I just loved this bouquet. The bride gave the florist a picture of something she loved...(always great to tear out pictures you get inspiration from) The feathers are my favorite. It really is unique and yet not too overwhelming...the bride should be the focus and the bouquet like a piece of jewelry....

    I actually got 2 more brides to use feathers in their bouquets.
    Pictures will follow as soon as the wedding gets here :)

    I love the idea of incorporating feathers in bouquets! I also love the different flowers featured in the bouquet pictured. Do you happen to know if those are real or silk flowers?

  4. Mindy Weiss reply

    hi thanks for writing Pam! These were real flowers used in the bouquet pictured.

    Hi Mindy, just foudn your blog – fantastic! I love feathers, especially when subtle! For a recent wedding, I had a bride who loved feathers, but her whole wedding was based on the Pacific Coastal feel of the island she lives on (and where the wedding was), near Seattle. We ended up using Pampas plumes (which grow everywhere here) to create a feathery feel – it turned out fabulous with the gray and creamy colors she wanted – yet was truly coastal!

This bride wanted to add her theme color (black) to her placesetting. I found some black velvet ribbon at a flee market (I try to go every sunday) and just tied a knot around the napkin. The couple loved lily of the valley so we placed a sprig under the ribbon. We also included a menu with a design that we pulled off the invite and tucked it under the napkin...

rose heads
Thought this centerpiece was a great idea to help stay on a limited budget....all we did was cut the head of the rose off the stem and lined them up in a retangular glass container....(Pottery Barn had alot of them on sale) very little water needed...add some votives maybe 3 at each corner and you have a very chic design..will look great on cocktail tables....

tree entrance
Hi All! Happy 4th of July! I took this picture of a wedding we just did where we had to actually put the tree branches inside the reception tent. There was no way to trim them back as the celebration was at a hotel. So we incorporated them inside the entrance tent...they looked awesome and it made an amazing entrance for the guests to enjoy....some obtacles...

Floral Tieback

/ Inspiration
floral tieback
Here is another beautiful take of a floral tie or pullback....this is definately a finishing detail. Some budgets won't allow for this detail . But I really think even a handful of beautiful ribbons would work wrappped around the fabric for an opening to another area, or just to see the gorgeous surroundings outside the tent. The one in the picture is a l...
