Romantic Flower-Ranunculus

Beautiful bouquet of pink ranunculus, pink spray roses, white lily of the valley and nerine lilies (InStyle Weddings 2008)

The Look Of Love

Romantic flowers are hot, hot, hot this wedding season. Full, round, lush these are all words that describe romantic flowers. What are some of those flowers types? A name that often comes up and many brides have in pictures of bouquets that they like are peonies, pronounced pee-0-nees. Just look at them. Large wavy petals, full round flower heads and soft feminine color that becomes more concentrated at the base. I love peonies of all colors but especially love the Sarah Bernhardts.

Peonie season is not lengthy but peonies can be found through July but be prepared to pay a hefty price. But if you love this flower you might say it is worth it. Truly a romantic flower in my book.

Your flowers for prom should be an accent to your dress and style. Your prom dress is a reflection of your taste and style. One thing that never goes out of style is a word called pretty.
Pretty is often a fuller more
more romantic look. Traditional often includes roses or babies breath or lilies or orchids. This look is always a winner. How can you go wrong with roses or orchids. I mean, come on. I still love this and never get tired of seeing it. But, then again I love flowers.

Whats Hot For Prom 2010-WIRE

You have probably seen this material often used in submerged vase centerpieces. It is a very popular material right now and for good reason. You can make swirls, curly-q's, abstact and geometric shapes to use on either a corsage or boutonniere. I used this trend many times in last years wedding season and it continues for 2010. Accent wire comes in many colors including, silver, gold, black, green, blue, red, purple,copper and pink. Be sure to see our previous post for more pictures of wire being used.

As You Wish will hand make just for you a wristlet out of silver wire and add texture with beads or pearls. Your wrist corsage can be mounted to it with a removable base and after prom you have a keepsake. Check out the photos here for some examples and to see the unique wristlet.
