All About Flowers

Flowers are a big deal when it comes to weddings. It helps highlight the romance and brings elation to those who are near them. When budgeting for flowers, talk to your fiance about the must-have flowers from beginning to end of your wedding day. From there, decide the types of flowers you want to have and how they’ll match the decor of your venue.

Bouquets:

The flowers in a bride’s bouquet is the finishing touch to the bride’s look. If you’re looking for bouquets that are versatile, consider going for some of the colors and textures in the featured photo. In the bottom right corner, a simple bouquet of lavender with a silk bow embodies the elegance needed for a bride. Above this bouquet is a lovely combination of blush pink roses, white peonies, ranunculus, and a combination of greens, including eucalyptus leaves. But if you’re looking for your bouquet to be the statement piece of your look, go for the cascading bouquet, which features a mixture of garden flowers and leaves. What’s perfect about this look is that you can’t go wrong with color. The combination of color makes it look like you’ve got the perfect piece of your garden with you!

Aisle Decor:

When selecting flowers for your wedding consider how you’ll want your pictures to come out during the ceremony. What colors and textures do you want surrounding you? Then, discuss ways to make your vision a reality with your Event Designer. In the featured collage, the photo on the left uses a green moss-like backdrop to accentuate the variety of pink flowers with an ombre effect. To the top right, you’ll see a more subtle approach of flowers for your ceremony, which is flower balls hanging from the gorgeous large tree. The best part about flower balls is that you can use almost any flower, so you’ll have options with colors, and you can have your florist create a variety of sizes to add depth to look. Lastly, the bottom right photo uses purple hues to highlight the copper of the venue. The petals that line the aisle match the assorted triple tower hydrangea arrangement. So creative and beautiful!

Reception Ideas:

For your reception, tie in bits of your ceremonial flowers and bouquet. If you had wild flowers or a mixture of garden flowers for your ceremony, consider having centerpieces that embody that same look. The bottom left photo features seasonal flowers in The Great Hall of Celebrate at Snug Harbor.  With the combination of green, yellow, orange, red, and white, the bride and groom had plenty of color options for the rest of their decor. The bottom right photo is a great way to utilize the greens of your bouquet or aisle decor. The hanging greenery of the dinner table match the leaves set as the table runner. What’s great about this look is that you can pair the greenery with almost any venue. Lastly, the top photo captures the elegance of white flowers. The bunched hydrangea and baby blue-eyes arrangements act as a runner for the table. This gives the table a rich and graceful look!

A word of caution, you may fall in love with a flower that isn’t in season for your wedding, so consult with a florist and your Event Designer to make sure you’re getting the fabulous florals you want for your wedding! Most importantly, have fun with the selection process! There are so many options to choose from and so even if you aren’t able to get the flowers you thought you wanted, you can still have the perfect arrangements for your wedding.

How to Pick the Best Color Schemes for Your Wedding Season

It is common for every bride to feel undecided as to what the best color scheme for her wedding should be. While finding a group of colors that go well together, there are other factors that need to be taken into account so that you can look at your wedding pictures loving the cohesion of hues rather than second guessing your final choices. It is so important to include your favorite colors, but don’t forget to consider the season and the wedding space.

Play Favorites:

Choose colors that make you both happy. Consider your favorite color and your hubby-to-be’s favorite color and try to find a common color that will make the two of you happy to see on your big day. As in the featured photo below of the Tuscan Garden at Celebrate at Snug Harbor, there is a beautiful mixture of colors from the scattered rose petals, floral arrangements, dress, and ties of the groom and his father. While the colors vary, they blend beautifully together.

Seasonal Tones:

The season in which you get married is crucial when choosing your color theme. If you’re looking for tones of blush, powder blue, or pastel yellow, you’ll want to consider a spring wedding so that it matches with spring flowers and greenery. In the featured photo, it’s clear to see how well the pink flowers and alter blend with the trees and grass of the Celebrate at Snug Harbor garden. Summer weddings call for more vibrant colors, such as champagne, purple, or orange. For a fall wedding, you’ll want to consider having one bold color and a few others to compliment the focal color, such as a burgundy with beige and cream. Lastly, if opting for a winter wedding, you’ll want deep pine green with shades of white to highlight the theme of winter.

The Space:

While it’s great to have color themes in mind, it’s best to book your venue before solidifying the color choices for your wedding. In the first feature photo, you’ll see the bride and groom have elegantly matched the woodwork of the door to their birch canopy. The ivory and royal blue tones of the walls are cohesive with the bride’s peach hair piece, blush carnations, and the groom’s navy suit. Don’t forget to look for a space with lots of natural sunlight, if you’re planning an indoor ceremony. The natural light of the Art Gallery at Celebrate at Snug Harbor brings out the peach details to match the navy tones for the wedding guests to see.

However, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding ceremony, try to let the venue’s outdoor details become your wedding color theme. In the photo of Celebrate at Snug Harbor’s Chinese Scholar Garden, there’s no need for additional colors or a separate theme with the lush greenery. Depending on your venue, your color scheme may already be chosen for you without you even realizing it!

Your venue sometimes provides the inspiration you’ve been looking for. Celebrate at Snug Harbor offers 83-acres of property to find colors to inspire you for almost any season!
