I had a great time at the Winchester Bridal Expo this year. I was able to meet tons of newly engaged ladies, and the wedding dates vary from next month to next year! I always love catching up with my fellow wedding vendors and meeting new vendors. And because I have such a great relationship with Julie Napear Wichern of Julie Napear Photography, she photographed my work from the show!

Lavender and shades of Purple are still going strong this year. I designed several weddings around this color scheme, and all of them were different. In this bouquet I wanted to show texture and interest so I incorporated silver brunia berries, green bupluerum and limonium to accent the white ranunculus and lavender roses.
Soft, retro/vintage, elegance, are words I see popping up again and again. I followed a pastel color scheme with white ranunculus, champagne spray roses, white lisianthus and seeded eucalyptus.
This bouquet was extremely light-weight. The silver collar is aluminium and ultra light. It comes accented with pearls and is available in silver, copper and gold. I sheltered it with tulle, available in a wide variety of colors. White ranunculus and white lisianthus, all very light weight as they have small stem circumference (and I thought I'd never use math again- HA)
One of my favorites, and one that I got a lot of feedback on was a funky tropical bouquet. It can be designed with or with out the copper glitter greenery. Tropicals are a safe bet for outdoor summer weddings because they love the heat. This bouquet uses birds of paradise (only available in orange/blue combo), orange"Unique" roses, and yellow hypericum berries.
