Looking for just the right shade to set the tone for your wedding day? Find your signature color among these ideas for the perfect palette! From cool blues and whites to whimsical lilac and plum, or warm terra cotta and fuchsia – these six shades can be carried throughout your wedding day in a myriad of ways. We love that these shades don’t necessarily have to be overpowering. Let them take the reins in subtle ways to make your wedding details POP!

Although plum is traditionally a fall and winter shade, don’t be afraid to use it in other seasons as it pairs beautifully with both neutrals and complementing hues alike. Not to mention, plum and gold (or rose gold) is a match made in heaven! Sophisticated and bold, this hue makes quite a statement!

Winter White

Crisp, soft and sultry all at the same time, we can hardly think of a shade more classic and awe-inspiring than a timeless winter white. When you take white beyond just the dress, it can transform the entire feel of a wedding day. Pair with simple greenery and a warmer ivory to bring dimension – you won’t be disappointed with this stunning neutral!

Terra Cotta

Step out of the box and embrace an incredible earthy tone with terra cotta. As you can see, terra cotta is a hue that can breathe life into any scene whether you go darker or lighter. The perfect choice for a boho bride, terra cotta is one of our absolute favorite tones to see!

Fuchsia

It doesn’t get much punchier than a fun, cheerful fuchsia hue. Don’t be scared of going BOLD with this shade, as it pairs beautifully with lighter, warmer hues like ivory, peach and even a soft green. One way we love to see fuchsia incorporated? A pretty pink pout, of course!

Lilac Love

Soothing and serene, lilac is an often-overlooked shade but when it’s used throughout different wedding vignettes – wow! What a stunner. From lilac hues in a makeup palette to of course, florals and cake, lilac is the perfect unexpected springtime shade for a whimsical, classy affair.

Out of the Blue

Something borrowed, something blue – oh, how we love this hue! We’re fairly certain blue can do no wrong, especially in this more unique lighter azure shade that reminds us of a cloudless afternoon sky or tropical ocean waters. Take it from winter to spring to summer – you’ll find endless uses for the prettiest blue, and we think you’ll end up in love!

We had the pleasure of releasing yet another breathtaking Brides of Oklahoma magazine this month that is jam-packed with loads of creative inspiration for all our local brides-to-be! Our amazing Oklahoma vendors made the Spring/Summer 2020 issue possible with the incredible weddings and styled shoots that brought life to our local wedding industry. We kicked off our brunches with our OKC vendors at The Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Downtown Medical Center. Heart eyes definitely formed when we saw that popping pink welcome sign that Sandstone Avenue made for our event! Marianne’s Rentals supplied the draping and luxe linens that complemented gorgeous florals from Roots + Blooms. Box Talent Agency really brought the party with Wade Tower’s angelic jazz vocals to serenade us through our meal. Guests mixed and mingled to the lively atmosphere that was buzzing around the ballroom. Allie’s Baking Boutique crafted the cutest cupcakes for guests to either take for the road, or devour them right then and there like we did!

Brunch with the Brides | An Inside Look into the Spring/Summer 2020 Mag Release

 

We unveiled the mag to our amazing Tulsa-area vendors at the modern, upscale Prhyme Steakhouse the day following our OKC event. Upon arrival to the brunch, guests were welcomed into an intimate space lit with candles and filled with intricate blossoms from floral extraordinaire, Anthousai. A phenomenal omelet bar was presented by Justin Thompson Catering, along with other tasty breakfast creations. For a final favor, our beloved attendees received a variety of cookies from Sweet Devotion Cakery – our fave! Thankfully, Chelsea Littleton Photography was on site at both locations to capture all the fun! Cheers to another fabulous issue!

Expert Tips on How to Select Your Wedding Flowers

From how to select your wedding flowers and get the most bang for your buck to what bloom trends to look for, we have you covered for all things floral! Whitney Virden, founder of Roots + Blooms Floral Design, is here to share her expert tips including how to repurpose your flowers. Keep scrolling for all the awesome details!

Expert Tips on How to Select Your Wedding Flowers

What floral trends are you loving?

I love dried florals right now. They bring in such a fun shape and textured element. Most of the brides I have met with so far are loving pampas grass, which I like too! Pampas brings a boho wild child vibe, and I am here for that.

Where are the best resources for couples looking for floral inspo?

Brides of Oklahoma magazine is a great place to start. Mark the pages of styles that stick out to you and circle flowers that catch your eye. When you meet with your florist, she/he can help you identify your style and the flowers you like. You can later Google those in arrangements or type them in Pinterest to get further ideas.

Any advice for couples selecting their blooms?

Yes, when looking for inspiration or browsing through the magazine when something catches your eye, be sure to ask yourself the questions to identify what it is about the arrangement that has caught your eye.  Is it the shape you like that caught your eye? Is it the color scheme that caught your eye? Is there a particular bloom in the arrangement that stands out to you? Asking these questions can help you better understand your style and what you like. When you meet with your florist, you can show her your pictures and tell her exactly what you like about each arrangement. Doing this will make selecting your blooms much easier!

How can a bride get the most bang for her buck with florals?

A bride can get the most bang for her buck with florals when she hires an experienced florist who will take the time to understand her needs. I know this sounds cliche, but it is so true. An experienced florist will be able to help you select products that will fit within your budget and remains loyal to your overall vision.  Sometimes substituting a high-end flower like a peony with a garden rose during certain times of the season can significantly lower your cost.

Sometimes going with a more monochromatic color scheme or choosing florals in the same color can make a significant impact on a smaller budget. As an experienced florist, I will take the time to understand what is most important to my brides for their big day and come up with some creative ways to stretch their dollars if necessary. 

For some of my bride’s, flowers are the main highlight of their wedding, so on items that may get photographed more like an arch or bridal bouquet, we focus on using the best product for those. Other brides have expressed that the flowers being unique to their taste and look and feel for their wedding is more important. So we do what we can to make sure that happens. Some brides have told me that they want the bare minimum that fits their budget, and I accommodate to their needs as well.

To get the bang for your buck, I recommend hiring an experienced florist that takes the time to understand your needs and be open-minded to their suggestions.

Where are your favorite places to include florals in the wedding decor?

As a florist, this is the hardest question! My love for flowers runs deep, and if it were up to me, I would cover walls in florals, lol. However, my favorite places to include florals in the wedding decor are on ceremony installations and centerpieces for the reception tables.

Where are the best/easiest places for brides to repurpose their flowers?

The best and easiest places for brides to repurpose flowers are from ceremony locations to reception locations. I have had brides use altar arrangements on head tables later. Or use their bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces. Anything put out at the ceremony location that is mobile can be reused in the reception area. I have also known brides that have reused rehearsal dinner florals at their reception.

What has been a favorite floral design you’ve created?

My favorite designs are the ones that challenge me or push me outside my comfort zone. I say designs with an S because I just had two that did just that. The first one, the bride wanted lilies painted turquoise. The second bride, the two most important products she wished to incorporate were lotus pods and calla lilies. If you did a quick search for either online, you would not find many examples. Therefore these designs had to be constructed from pure creativity. Both those brides told me endlessly how much they love what I created, that the bouquets fit them, and were precisely what they wanted. As a florist, there is nothing that makes me happier than brides who love what I have created for them! Therefore those two stand out the most in my mind and are among my favorites!
