Today’s Florida-based styled shoot was inspired by a pink-and-green swatch of striped fabric, which was used throughout the décor. The theme? “Fete Des Fleurs,” which means “Feast of Flowers” in French. Says the photographer, “The reasoning behind the feast of flowers was to create an atmosphere of feasting in a French garden, with a combination of florals, succulents, vegetables, and fruits as the main courses.” We’re obsessed with the lush and gorgeous floral arrangements, the regal gold and pink paper suite, and the incredible striped Hayley Paige gown that so perfectly matches the theme!

Let’s face it, the bridal bouquet will get more attention than any other floral arrangement, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show your groom’s lapel a little love with a statement-making boutonniere. A boutonniere must last for hours, meaning throughout the ceremony, photographs, dinner and dancing. Depending on the sturdiness of the flower, it’s likely that one boutonniere just isn’t enough. So, be prepared and have two or more as backup. To help suit your wedding style, here are a few of our favorites:
Rustic – If you’re a sucker for succulents like we are, then choose this natural yet simple boutonniere filled with yellow billy balls and wrapped with twine.

The perfect centerpieces go a long way in bringing together the overall style and feel of your big day. Here are some of our favorite looks for any wedding style.
Classic – We love these elegant arrangements of whites, creams and spring greens. Tea roses, hydrangeas and hyacinths are perfect choices for a timeless, sophisticated look. We also think that repurposing your bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets as centerpieces (as shown in the photo below, left) can be a nice money-saving idea.
There are many possibilities when it comes to choosing your floral arch and aisle decor, especially since it’s part of your big entrance and finish. Here are a few ideas to match your style:
Rustic - One of our favorite ways to decorate a rustic ceremony venue is using an arch filled with natural elements such as branches, twigs and vines, but if you want more color, add a hanging floral backdrop to match your scheme.

Even though the weather at WeddingWire HQ seems to think otherwise, we consider May the month of sunshine and flowers in bloom. This week, we’ll be sharing lots of floral arrangements to inspire you. We’re kicking off the week with bridal bouquets. Think of your bouquet as your main accessory for your wedding day – and like any accessory, you want to make sure it fits with your wedding’s theme and feel. Check out some of our favorites to help get you started:
Classic – For a formal wedding, go for a highly structured bouquet with a cohesive color scheme. Solid white arrangements or palettes of soft pinks and pale yellows are traditional and oh-so elegant. Opt for timeless blooms like roses, lilies, peonies or hydrangeas and tie together with a satin ribbon or monogrammed handkerchief.
Romantic Whimsical – Channel that dreamy romantic side with a sweet, fluttery bouquet. Go with soft tones like light pink, peach, lavender, pale green, periwinkle and buttery yellow. Create a loose arrangement of delicate blooms like orchids, ranunculus, primroses, anemones, fluffy peonies or, of course, romantic roses. Accent with sprays of Lilly of the Valley or dusty miller leaves.
Rustic – For the perfect countryside wedding bouquet, focus on texture. Mix earth tones with vibrant pops of color and incorporate intriguing organic accents like succulents, scabiosa pods, lotus pods, thistle or billy balls. Mums, dahlias and hydrangeas are popular choices for the base flower, while wildflowers like daisies, asters or irises and shoots of delphinium or lavender make wonderful accents. Wrap the bouquet in burlap, twine or birch for the perfect rustic look.
Glamorous – Make a statement on your big day with a grand, dramatic bouquet. An overflowing arrangement of monochromatic blooms accented with jewels, pearls, or feathers will do the trick. Long, cascading bouquets can be the perfect option for the bride who wants to incorporate a hint of glam without overdoing it.
