Lily of the Valley Bridal Bouquet

Posted on: January 5th, 2015 by melanie No Comments

One of my favorite flowers is Lily of the Valley, the quintessential flower of British wedding flowers. I had never seen one until we moved to a new home when I was about 12. A tiny patch bloomed by the front door every May, somewhat hidden by baby tears and camellia bushes. Now that I live on Bainbridge Island, where Lily of the Valley are easy to grow, my patch of flowers is spreading like mad. But if you want them in your brides bouquet they are still quite special.

The tiny white bells are sold in bunches of 10 with their bright green leaves, they wilt like mad and are super expensive. So  when a bride getting married in August wants a brides bouquet just like Catherine Middelton carried any florist would cringe just a little. But we are always up for a challenge especially if it is a flower close to our heart. For our version of the famous bouquet we used 80 stems of individually wired lilies, freesia, sweet william, myrtle and a few rose buds.

fIts always so fun to work with Michelle at Married and More with Michelle so when she called and said she had a fun couple I was super excited. Amanda and Matt were so sweet and their style shows in this fun and whimsical wedding. Amanda designed all the paper products for her wedding and we took our color inspiration from those colors. Mint, pink and blue could turn out to be a muddle but I love how everything turned out. The pink color came from the Ballerina rose. a pretty single rose that is very difficult to get. Amanda and Matt were engaged under a rose arbor covered with Ballerina so we had to have them on the Chuppah. For the aisle we filled mint vases with minty colored flowers and foliages with light pink and green tulips. A touch of blue came from the velvet ribbon we used to hang them from chairs. Each guest table had a blue glass table filled with spring flowers in pink and green with blue votive holders. I love this wedding and this super cool couple.
