Rustic Elegance Wedding Flower Inspiration

Rustic Elegance is one of the wedding industry’s hottest design trend at the moment – we’ve traded in burlap and mason jars for wooden farm tables and lush greens paired with white florals and sheers. Rustic weddings are beautiful, but if you’re looking for that elegant upgrade, you’ll want to infuse more flowers into your wedding design.

However, not just any flowers will do, as you will want them to complement your wedding vision. So, if you have decided on a rustic elegance wedding, know that there are so many lovely blooms to complement it!
Here at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events, we love creating blooms to complement all kinds of wedding themes, but rustic elegance is one of our favorites. That’s why we have put together a few floral ideas for your rustic elegance wedding. If you want to be surrounded by natural beauty as you tie the knot, be sure to continue reading to discover how you can:

Lush & Vivid

Sometimes people equate sophisticated design with understated details – but you can have statement blooms in an elegant wedding design. If you want to add color to your rustic elegance wedding flowers, consider dahlias and peonies. 

  • Dahlias. With its beautifully, ornately placed petals, dahlias resemble elegance, and surely your wedding will too.
  • Peonies. Peonies also contribute an elegant and vivid appeal to your wedding blooms with their charming muted colors and creative petals.

Rustic & wild

New England weddings serve as the perfect location to create a rustic feel. With the natural inspiration surrounding your guests, you don’t even have to work that hard! 

  • Greenery. Take the obvious and make it unique – everyone knows you must have greenery throughout your rustic elegance wedding, but go beyond the expected locations (table runners, tent poles) and attach it to your lighting overhead whether it is an existing chandelier, a rented chandelier or greenery attached to string lights! It makes a huge impact.
  • Wildflowers. For a dash of wild, incorporating wildflowers is a lovely way to really capture the spirit of the day, with so many colors available the design options are limitless.

Vibrant & Elegant

Consider the following blooms for bold pops of color that still translate as elegant.

  • English Garden Roses. You can forgo the classic roses you see and make use of English garden roses that have a heavy petal count and a fragrant smell that is to die for!!  These large blooms will surely make a great addition to your wedding wherever you might use them.
  • Ranunculus. For a lush element, your wedding flowers can also include the ornate ranunculus which come in a variety of colors. Together, these two flowers will create a vibrant and lush appearance for your big day.

Everything You Need to Know About Wedding Chuppahs

Jewish weddings traditionally take place under a chuppah, which symbolizes the new Jewish home being created by the marriage. The chuppah is a meaningful element of the wedding ceremony, and as such, often becomes a design focal point. 

More Reading: The Most Popular Wedding Flowers for Your Big Day

The word chuppah is Hebrew and means “canopy” or “covering,” which is fitting because an important part of the chuppah is the cloth that creates the canopy of the chuppah. Many couples choose to use a family heirloom, such as a prayer shawl, for the canopy. Traditional chuppahs have four legs, and the sides are open to represent the welcoming of friends and family into the couple’s home, the ceremony and the marriage.

If you are planning to incorporate a chuppah into your wedding ceremony, we have some ideas to share with you!

We have the structure!

Many couples stress out about sourcing and assembling a chuppah on the morning of their wedding, and then having to take it down at the end of the wedding. Don’t stress! Here at Flou(-e)r, we have a variety of chuppah options for you to choose from, and we take care of all the work getting it to – and from – your venue. We do not recommend DIY chuppahs – for all the reasons listed above, plus they need to be built in such a way that they do not topple when we adhere all the florals to the front!

chuppahs can be simple, ornate, or something in between.

Even if you are planning a short ceremony, know that the chuppah will be the star of many wedding photos. Afterall, the ceremony is the reason for celebration! If you’d like to keep things modern, consider a more simplistic chuppah with clean lines. Or, if you’d rather do something more decorative, know that we can cover your chuppah in florals for a luxurious look. Prefer something in between? Consider a spray of florals and greens in one of the corners for a pop of color.

Be spatially aware.

If your wedding is taking place on a platform, or in a smaller area, we’ll want to think about how much space we have for the ceremony. Remember that this space will need to include the chuppah, the ketubah, the wedding party, and any other element that you want incorporated into your ceremony space. Sometimes, the chuppah can take up a large amount of space and isn’t always factored into the overall footprint/design of the ceremony.

Because the chuppah is such a symbolic and important piece of the wedding ceremony, each one is unique to the couple getting married. We love dreaming up chuppah designs with our couples and would love the opportunity to discuss yours with you – contact us today!

Elements of Winter to Incorporate into Your Wedding Floral Arrangements

It may be August, but if you’re one of the couples who have suddenly found themselves planning a winter wedding due to a COVID postponement, you may be looking for some wedding flower inspiration. 

Aesthetically, the winter season is all about unique greenery, dazzling snow, crisp air and pine scents. It’s also the time of year we find ways to stay warm: hot cocoa, fireplaces and relaxation, but also by surrounding ourselves with friends and loved ones. It’s no wonder the winter season is the perfect time of year to tie the knot.

If you can’t tell, we love the winter season and can’t wait to highlight its comforting appeal throughout your wedding floral arrangements! We believe that every wedding should showcase unique floral arrangements! 

Pinecones

The scent of pine undoubtedly makes everyone who smells it think of the winter months. However, pine trees have more to offer than their aromatic elements, as they also give us pinecones, which are quite useful for décor! The pinecone is a versatile piece of the pine tree that makes a great addition to any winter floral arrangement. Whether they are left plain, painted, dipped in glitter, or even used to add a sense of smell to your setting, pinecones are sure to add a dash of winter to any floral arrangement that they are placed within. They are versatile too: pinecones can be utilized in rustic and modern designs alike, depending on how they are incorporated into the design.

Winterberries/Ilex.

One of the most popular floral foliage used for winter is the ever so charming winterberry, also known as ilex. Long-stemmed branches holding bright red berries is the perfect way for you to add a diverse appeal and height to your seasonal floral arrangements! They truly capture the winter spirit, in both color and style.

Ribbon

Not just for pretty packages, ribbon can play a role in your overall wedding design plan. You can catch the festive spirit with many different types of ribbons, from material to color and size – trust us, you will not feel like there aren’t options when it comes to ribbon! You can utilize ribbon in an array of ways when it comes to your wedding floral arrangements. Use long, dripping velvet ribbons on your bridal and bridesmaid bouquets for a more ethereal look. For a playful yet modern look at the ceremony, consider tying pretty bows with floral or evergreen accents on the corner of the chairs touching the aisle. You can also use ribbon to hand tie place cards to menus for each place setting – a nice touch!

Flowers.

You may be thinking, “where are the flowers” – while you now have a list of unique seasonal elements that you can incorporate into your floral arrangements, let us reassure you that there are great winter blooms that would pose as the perfect bases! If classic is more your style, stick to blooms in white, ivory and cream, or even super pale blush and champagne. Consider calla lilies, orchids and anemones. If your wedding date is closer to the spring season, tulips are another great option! If festive is more your style, let’s bring in some decadent reds and burgundy’s: roses, amaranthus, amaryllis and ranunculus are all wonderful options. And, if you want to go a little nontraditional with your greens, allow us to infuse some succulents into your arrangements and bouquets for a really cool, nontraditional touch.

You can bring the celebration of winter to your wedding with impressive and seasonal floral arrangements! These are just a few of the many popular ways in which you can.

They also make for beautiful boutonnieres!

Hydrangeas

Voluminous and elegant, hydrangeas pose as the perfect filler flowers for floral arrangements. However, they are beautiful all on their own as well! Usually showcased in white, these abundant beauties will certainly add a dash of texture to any arrangement they are placed within. In addition, they come in lovely colors, such as blue, purple, and even green, allowing you to select the perfect hue to fulfill your wedding vision! 

Peonies

Showcasing a soft and intricate style, peonies have certainly left their mark on the wedding world! These fluffy flowers present a great deal of elegance, and are often chosen in soft pink and pastel colors for weddings. They will certainly be a lovely addition to your floral arrangements, as they blend well with other blooms beautifully. One thing to know about peonies: as popular as they are for weddings, they are only in season for a few short weeks – but do not worry! If you love peonies, we can always help you find something similar if they’re not available for your date.

Your wedding floral arrangements deserve to be nothing less than stunning! These are just a few of the most popular flowers that you could choose to present throughout your own big day.

Please take a moment to contact us here at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events! With access to the best wedding flowers and a passion for creativity, we just can’t wait to create stunning displays for your big day.

Inspiration for Creating Your Wedding Centerpieces

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event! It’s your big day, a day where you get to highlight a great deal of beauty and uniqueness that’s sure to be enjoyed by all of your guests.

More Reading: Top Bridal Bouquet Styles for Your Wedding

One of the largest pieces of wedding planning is the overall design and aesthetic of the day – and although flowers may seem like just one piece, the truth is, they are a driving force when it comes to pulling your overall design together; and your centerpieces will be a critical part of that design!

We understand just how important it is that our couples’ weddings stand out from the rest! That’s why, here at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events, as Boston floral designers, we have comprised some inspiration to assist you with creating your own wedding centerpieces. Here are some ideas to consider as you begin to envision your wedding centerpieces: 

Low Centerpieces

Wedding flowers that are low are a great option if you’re looking to enhance the reception room without too much of a bold statement. In fact, short centerpieces will highlight a delicate and sophisticated appeal, which is sure to have your wedding tables evoking a great deal of elegance!

Consider a classic showcase of greens and roses along with other delicate blooms, as they will present a dash of timeless delicacy to each table.

Wedding Centerpiece - Candelabra

Or, you can go elegant with a floral base centered around a candelabra. Consider hydrangeas, larger blooms available in a number of colors! White and blue hydrangeas are quite popular, and for good reason, as the colors pair well with the New England’s natural color palette; and hydrangeas grow locally! 

floral runners

There are some people who have a flair for a dramatic appearance, and creativity loves them for it! You can go bold and beautiful with a floral runner, which can be utilized in an array of ways throughout your big day!

Wedding Centerpieces - Floral Garland Runner

Garland runners are a very popular option these days – it’s a versatile option and can easily lend to any design, be it modern or rustic. For a modern look, consider a monochromatic look with the addition of candlelight. If rustic is more your style, let’s go heavy with greenery.

Wedding Centerpieces - Cascading Floral Runner

Although fabric runners are still a popular option, in our (maybe biased opinion), a floral runner is a great way to add a pop of color, drama and a unique touch to your reception design. You could consider the popular option of a lovely presentation of greenery highlighted right down the center of your tables, or you can add some drama by skipping the greens and doing full florals all the way through – if you really want to make a statement, consider a floral waterfall opposite of where you and your partner will be seated – this design not only makes it easier for the photographer to get shots of the two of you throughout the evening, but also allows your flowers to play a leading role in your reception design.

Elevated Florals

Tall centerpieces are probably one of the most misunderstood wedding design elements out there, and we’re here to set the record straight: when designed properly, a tall centerpiece does not prohibit your guests from being able to chat with one another. Our tall centerpieces start at a height of at least 24” and go up from there – ensuring no view is obstructed. Our tall centerpieces are also completely finished at the bottom – this means your guests won’t see the construction/mechanics of how it was assembled when they are sitting. So, if your reception room has tall ceilings, or if you want a dramatic presentation when your guests enter the room, let’s talk about how tall centerpieces could be the right design for you.

Your wedding flowers should certainly be an extension of your personal design preferences and make quite the statement! These are just a few ideas to get you started as you plan the vision!

A Few of Flou(-ə)r’s Favorite Moments of 2019

The new year is finally upon us and we’ve had some time to reflect on what an amazing year 2019 has been – we had a wonderful year designing events for a group of wonderful clients and now that we’ve had some rest, we are so ready to tackle 2020. 

Here are a few of our favorite moments of 2019: 

Danielle, Lead Designer: 

  1. Designing a floral peacock, which we lovingly named Patty. 
  2. Similarly, designing a floral elephant, named Ellie.
  3. Creating an 8’ long, elevated floral arrangement to show local industry leaders one of the latest design trends.

Jordan, Designer

  1. Joining the Flou(-e)r team! 
  2. Working the Apollo Launch Party, my first-ever corporate event.
  3. Designing Patty the Peacock, a large-scale installation, which was also a first for me!

Alissa, Designer 

  1. Getting to design with pampas grass, and really all the opportunities I had to design with different product. 
  2. Jordan joining the team!
  3. Going to the Brimfield Antique Show to bargain shop with the team for one of our corporate events. Although it was 110 degrees, we loved the Flou(-e)r field trip to Brimfield!

Gregory, Managing & Creative Director

  1. Being able to design a true indoor carnival from concept to installation. This project included bringing 140 bales of hay indoors and really created the wow factor in the event design. Bonus: we were able to donate the hay after the event to a local nonprofit that provides therapeutic riding activities for children and adults with special needs, veterans, youth at risk, survivors of human trafficking and more.
  2. Hosting one of Boston’s leading networking groups in our studio while educating guests on the latest design trends.
  3. I loved that we were able to continue our goal of conceptualizing and installing out-of-the-box, large scale installations for our clients. It’s so fun to dream something up and then see it come together for a client!

If you’re looking for the perfect venue for a rustic elegance wedding, look no further! Briar Barn Inn Weddings strike the perfect balance of rustic: the venue space itself inspired by barn aesthetics, but the color palette is much brighter. Clean lines give the space a more modern feel, and your guests will enjoy an outdoor wedding ceremony on the property.

For this shoot, we introduced rustic to classic wedding elegance: greenery wrapped bistro lights above the reception tables, modern metallic seating along the long, wooden farm tables set with gold flatware, intricate china and ornate glass votives. Down the center, a bright floral focal point featuring hot pink garden roses, mini green  hydrangeas, deep purple hydrangeas, magenta stock, and (almost) everyone’s favorite wedding flower: peonies!

Our circular wedding arch made an appearance, adorned with bright, jewel-toned florals and suspended greenery.  We even infused one of our new favorite blooms, king protea’s in blush which surely stands out in any arch or bouquet. The bright wedding flower colors really pop against the green backdrop, don’t you agree?!

We always hear from brides who ask for insight on hair flowers. Of course, we can create floral combs or even provide your beauty team with wired florals for your hair, but we just love this modern take on a floral crown! No ladies, not all floral crowns have to be loose and wispy – we love this crown, featuring peonies, roses, and craspedia. Again, a great way to elevate a popular rustic elegant wedding look.

We understand just how important it is to highlight the best bouquets on your wedding day! That’s why, here at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events, as Boston wedding flower designers, we have gathered some of the top bridal bouquet styles that you could choose for your own wedding.

Natural Bouquet

If you are seeking to showcase a traditional sense of style down the aisle, consider choosing a natural bridal bouquet. Comprised of more loosely arranged blooms, natural bouquets will highlight a more organic appeal. This bouquet style is certainly ideal for brides who love a focus on greenery and natural settings.

CRESCENT BOUQUET

Add a wispy and romantic appeal to your walk down the aisle by choosing a crescent bridal bouquet! These bouquets are created with a center of compacted flowers, which then extends out of each side, creating a crescent shape. This style is best for brides in search of a classic, yet romantic bouquet style.

CASCADE BOUQUET

Create your bridal bouquet to appear as a waterfall of flowers by choosing a cascade style! These voluptuous bouquets will make quite the statement, therefore pairing best with gowns that showcase little detail. Enhanced with greenery so that your blooms will pop, you can create this floral arrangement to be a powerful focal point of your ensemble.

Teardrop Bouquet

You can highlight an old-fashioned bouquet down the aisle by choosing a teardrop style! Smaller versions of the cascade bouquet, teardrop bouquets are compacted with flowers that showcase a tear shape. This style of bouquet is perfect for petite brides who don’t want to be overwhelmed with flowers but would still like to evoke some uniqueness when it comes to their floral arrangement.

Nosegay Bouquet

Highlight both elegance and class by choosing a nosegay bouquet for your big day! These romantic bouquets consist of a tight bunch of blooms, exposing density in a truly intimate way. This style is ideal for brides who would like to showcase a classic floral arrangement and is paired best with traditional gowns.

Round Bouquet

Usually comprised of one type of flower, presenting a monochromatic look, round bouquets are created to appear as perfect domes. So, if you are seeking to a bridal bouquet that evokes elegance in a voluminous and simplistic way, a round bouquet would be an ideal choice!

Every bride deserves to flaunt a gorgeous bouquet on her big day! These are just a few of the most popular bridal bouquet styles that you could choose for your own wedding.

If you have decided to tie the knot with the beach in the background, you have made a wonderful choice! Sand between your toes, gorgeous waves crashing among the shore, rays of sun beaming down on you; beach weddings certainly are stunning!

Hydrangeas

Add some abundance to your big day by incorporating hydrangeas into your floral arrangements! These voluminous blooms are commonly used so that our couples get the “best bang for their buck” but are beautiful all on their own as well. While white hydrangeas are most commonly utilized, know that you can discover these blooms in other colors as well, such as blues and pinks.

These stunning island blooms are intricate in detail and unique in presentation, allowing you to highlight elegance throughout your arrangements. These wispy and elegant blooms can be discovered in an array of hues, from romantic white to vibrant magenta.

Don’t Forget to Add Some Greens!

It’s important to keep in mind that your wedding floral arrangements don’t have to consist of just blooms. In fact, greenery is an ideal way to enhance your displays and make your flowers pop! By incorporating deep green monstera leaves into your arrangements, you can ensure that your displays will highlight a tropical sense of style.

Don’t forget that not all your wedding design elements need to be flowers! We love working with driftwood and grapevine spheres for beach weddings – infusing them into the floral design will create a cohesive look and strike the perfect balance of natural and romantic.

With the right wedding flowers, your beach wedding will look elegant, yet casual! Remember, these are just a few of our suggestions for beach wedding flowers – the options are limitless with the right approach and a little creativity.
