greenery bridal bouquet, greenery

Heart’s shaped bouquet

With “Greenery” being Pantone color of the year in 2017 this bouquet falls perfectly into place.  This “hearts” shaped bridal bouquet lends itself to an organic, loosely arranged and wild bouquet.  Its mixed greenery foliage creates a base for the few flowers that are tucked into it.  The flowers in this bouquet consisted of white lisanthus, pink hyacinth, white genestra and white stock.  Bound by a white satin ribbon wrap, this bouquet is the perfect accent for any bride having a “greenery inspired look. Thank you Sarah Babcock Studio for capturing this beautiful bouquet in a perfect image.

Farm wedding theme

  Year after year the farm wedding is still as strong as ever.  With locations like Canopy Creek Farm, Rolling Meadows Ranch and The Estate at Sunset Farm, our Dayton and Cincinnati brides have more than one option to choose from. This bride choose to include her theme by adding her plaid shirt over her beautiful toulle ball gown.  What a great way to include more of your own personal style to your day.  The shirt was not worn the entire day, but was a little surprise.   Thank you Sarah Babcock Studio for capturing these amazing images.

Bold wedding flowers

The Bold and the Beautiful

Our customers often ask us the same question week to week, “Should we do all white or should we add color?” I say ADD COLOR!! I just adore when color is used in any arrangement.  Of course, white is simple and never goes out of style.  It is contemporary, classic and always appropriate. But when you ask our opinion as a creative director, I always say go for the color!! These beautiful blooms of magenta, burgundy, peach and bright yellow accent the neutral green base, making the color almost shoot out of this image. ~Cady, Owner and Creative Director of Floral V Designs

Here is the question.  The Cascade bouquet or the hand tied? The cascade bouquet is starting to make a come back for our 2017 brides. This teardrop shaped bouquet was filled with beautiful light pink rice flower, blush garden roses, light pink astilbee, white stock and light pink spray roses with greens as a light base. What do you think?

Blush and ivory bridal bouquet

Classic Blush and Ivory

2016’s trend of blush and ivory wedding flowers is still strong into the 2017 wedding year.  Ohio brides are splitting the trends between the classic floral designs and the loose, organic greenery look.  The greenery look can be described as “lush, bushy and wild.”  But this bride chose beautiful clustered blooms of blush and ivory roses, garden roses and spray roses for her bridal bouquet.  The stems of the bouquet were adorned in wrapped ivory pearls. Thank you Mark Garber Photography for capturing these floral details.

Boutonniere of the year 2017

So far in our meetings with our brides we have clearly seen a trend in choosing Ranunculus for the main boutonniere flower choice for 2017 upcoming weddings.  With so many colors to choose from, ranunculus can lend themselves towards a garden and greenery themed wedding or a classic rose inspired wedding.  These groomsmen flowers were white ranunculus accented by lavender Wax Flower, Italian Ruscus greenery wrapped in a champagne satin ribbon. The perfect final touch. Boutonniere image provided by Mandy Paige Photography

Custom designed seating charts

With such great creative designers on hand we started custom designing seating charts last year.  We noticed our bride’s were so stressed about the handling and delivery of these items as a “DIY” project.  We work 2 weeks before the wedding to collect all the guests names and seating arrangements.  We print our charts locally on Wednesday picking them up by Friday afternoon and hand delivering them with a rented easel to our brides wedding here in Dayton or Columbus.  With unlimited designs at our fingertips, let us help you with your wedding guest seating chart.

composting florist, greener florist

Our first composting day

We had an exciting day today, we took over our first run of organic materials to Toms Mulch in Bellbrook, Ohio.  We work with the local landscaping company which accepts all our organic matter which they then turn into mulch and compost! We are eliminating 22,000 pounds of organic material going into our local landfill here in Dayton, Ohio.  We are just 1 of 1000’s of florists across the nation.  Imagine what we all could do to make a better and cleaner Earth.  #goinggreen #AGreenerFlorist

Hand lettered place cards

Place cards are a important part of a wedding reception.  Brides debate whether to have open seating or assigned seating.  Remember, your guests are there to be a part of your big day, they have a reason to be there, thats another reason to have a place for them to go at the reception.  Every person has gone to an event where they did not know many people, so having a place to go was easier than looking at a crowd of hundreds and feeling like you don’t belong.  So when you ask us our opinion, we say to take the time and figure out your seating chart or place/escort cards.  Thank you Mark Garber Photography for this beautiful detail shot.
