I have spent a lot of time today learning about wedding flowers, and the latest wedding floral designs. I thought I would share some of this with you.
By far the most popular bouquet our brides request is the "Tropical" included in the Cayman Wedding packages. This does not mean you get the same bouquet as all the other brides in a week or a month. The Tropical still gives you some flexibility in colour and in blooms.
Other exotic blooms often requested are anthuriums, pincushion protea and ginger flowers.
I really loved this bouquet but I can't name all the flowers, what I like about the florist we use, Trisha's Roses is that the flowers are always fresh, and the designers are great. I very seldom get a bridal bouquet I'm not 100% satisfied with, and they will always fix it if I'm not happy.
Two things I learned today:
1. For your first anniversary, don't bother with traditional top-layer of your wedding cake, ask your florist to recreate a miniature vase arrangement of your wedding bouquet flowers...what a beautiful reminder of your special day.
2. Can't decide what kind of flowers to get for your mother-in-law. mother or grand-mother? Get a hand-held corsage with just a few blooms which complement the colour and style of your own bouquet!
All our wedding florals include a matching boutonniere for the groom.
