How to Choose the Perfect Bridal Bouquet

Knowing how to choose the perfect bridal bouquet can make all the difference in styling your wedding day look. It can be daunting to decide on the ideal bouquet that will complement your wedding dress. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with some helpful tips from a Cincinnati wedding florist to make your decision a little easier. Consider Your Dress Style When it comes to selecting the perfect bouquet, your dress style is a crucial factor. If you have a ball gown wedding dress, a larger bouquet with a cascading shape will be a great choice. For a more relaxed dress style, a smaller and simpler bouquet will work better. Think About Your Wedding Theme Your wedding theme should also be a consideration in your bouquet choice. If you have a rustic wedding theme, a bouquet with natural elements such as wildflowers and greenery will complement your theme. If you have a more classic or formal wedding theme, a bouquet with roses or peonies will give off an elegant vibe. Consider the Colors The colors in your bouquet should complement your wedding dress and tie in with your overall wedding color scheme. For example, if you have a neutral or pastel wedding design, a bouquet with pastel colors will work well. If you have a wedding design with bold colors or patterns, a bouquet with complementary colors will balance out your look. Think About Your Personal Style Your personal style is another crucial factor when choosing your bouquet. If you’re a romantic at heart, a bouquet with roses and peonies will fit your style. If you prefer a more modern look, a bouquet with a sleek and structured design will work best. Make an Informed Decision Knowing how to choose the perfect bridal bouquet to complement your wedding is […]

Tall Wedding Centerpieces and Reception Design in Cincinnati, Ohio. Part 1

Let’s talk reception design!  In this blog we’ll look at the elements you’ll need to host a spectacular wedding reception that is unique to your style and dazzles your wedding guests. Thru our real wedding images, we hope to inspire you with some of the best reception table designs we have crafted for our Floral V Designs clients. Tall centerpieces are an eye-catching way to complement your venue and create a “WOWIE” moment for you and your guests. These lush designs are essential for setting the tone of your reception, adding drama, and displaying your signature style. A tall centerpiece’s style and elements can vary greatly depending on your vision, goals, and venue. Fortunately, we have fantastic design team that loves creating stunning elevated centerpieces for each couple’s dream wedding. Nothing could be more spectacular! Our first example, is from a reception at Green Acres Foundation in Cincinnati, Ohio.  It shows how powerfully tall centerpieces command a room, or in this case a tent. As your guests enter the tent, their gaze is drawn around with the help of these magnificent fixtures. To add visual weight to the layout, we counterbalance the centerpiece’s height with Southern Smilax garlands draped from the ceiling and the parameter of the tent. The result is stunning!

The Floral V Designs team developed distinct floral arrangements for all the guest tables.  Beautiful, tall, garden-inspired centerpieces filled with light blue and white hydrangeas, champagne and blush roses adorned the 40 inch glass Bespoke vases that sat atop the periwinkle satin linens.

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

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

Low and Long

  This fabulous centerpiece consists of a low gold leaf compote filled with tulips, roses, ranunculus, rose hips, spray roses, protea, hanging amaranthus and mixed textured greenery.  The new compote design style for 2016 is low, loose and elongated on the sides of the compote.  Thus creating a more oval shaped centerpiece instead of the traditional round.
