Between the fireworks and barbecues, the Fourth of July is the perfect summer holiday. If you’re looking to bring Independence Day to your wedding, one of the best places to start is with your flowers.

Red, white, and blue blooms are perfect for a bouquet. Whether you choose roses, hydrangea, or a mix of flowers, you can carry a beautiful bouquet of colors to match your theme.

The fun and fantastic look of fireworks can also be incorporated into your flowers. With sprays of baby’s breath, you can capture the look of fireworks bursting in the sky. You can show them off on their own or mix them with blue hydrangeas for a great effect.

The best way to get the perfect Fourth of July flowers for your wedding day is to work with an experienced florist. If you’re looking for wedding flowers in Milwaukee, get in touch with us today to see what we can do!

Summer’s Here, and So Are Summer Flowers!

Summer is a great time for weddings, and the season offers many great types of flowers that are perfect for nuptials. With the hotter weather, you’ll need to choose flowers that will stay beautiful throughout the full event, though.

One way to ensure you have great flowers for your summer wedding is to choose  blooms that are local to us in Wisconsin. Many types of clematis and hydrangea are in season throughout the summer months and can be beautiful additions to wedding flowers.

Non-local flowers can still be a great choice, and this is the perfect time of year to choose tropical blooms like birds-of-paradise. These can add vibrant color to your arrangements while standing up to the heat and humidity of our summers.

Bright, bold colors are perfect for summer wedding flowers. It’s a chance to really show off what nature has to offer. To find out more about choosing the perfect flowers for your summer wedding, get in touch today!

Choosing Centerpieces For Your Wedding

When it comes to your wedding day, centerpieces are one of the most important ways to display gorgeous flowers. Along with the bridal bouquet, they’re the floral arrangements that your guests will most look forward to seeing, and that will most define the style of your wedding.

Of course, there are many different styles of centerpieces. Depending on your wedding’s style or theme, you might want to opt for something big or small, bright or subdued.

There are also multiple ways of displaying floral centerpieces. The most common way, of course, is a traditional vase. You can add extra interest to your centerpieces with a colored glass vase, which will nicely set off the flowers you have chosen.

A tall vase can be a dramatic choice, and can allow your guests to easily see each other across the table. You can also opt for a bowl style presentation, where the flowers are kept lower. This can be a great choice if you want to include foliage.

Whatever presentation you choose, great centerpieces begin with a great florist. If you’re looking for the perfect Milwaukee florist for your wedding, get in touch with us today!

How to Decorate Your Ceremony

You’ll be carrying a bouquet, and your reception’s tables will have centerpieces, but what will you do for your ceremony? Many couples aren’t sure how to add flowers to their ceremony, but it’s really simple.

One great place for flowers is along your aisle. You can add floral balls at the end of each row of seats for a great addition to the venue. Whether you’re having an indoor or outdoor ceremony, flower balls can be hung from special stands made for the surface or from the ends of pews.

You can also add flowers to the altar space. If you’re having any type of archway over or around the altar, this can be covered in beautiful flowers. You can also add tall bouquets in vases next to where you’ll be saying your vows. This can set off the special location in a gorgeous way.

How to Use White Wedding Flowers

With so many colorful blooms available, there’s something particularly powerful about choosing all white flowers for your wedding day. It gives a beautiful look to your bouquet and venue to plenty of pure white flowers, and is unmistakably bridal.

White flowers are perfect with a white dress, but can also nicely set off any ivory, off-white, or colored wedding gown. When we saw the photos from last week’s wedding of Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, we were struck by the gorgeous choice of white gown and white flowers his new wife, activist Lauren Parsekian had made.

When you choose to go with any single color for your flowers, the quality of blooms is very important. You’ll want flowers that hold the color perfectly, and that look great in their own right. A single color bouquet can be all one type of flower, or it can be a mix of several types.

If you do opt for several flowers, an expert florist will be able to direct you towards blooms that work well together and that have the same tone of your chosen color. (An all-white bouquet can be completely thrown off by a single cream-toned flower in the middle!)

What Are Your Wedding Must Haves?

There are many elements that go into any wedding, but what pieces can you compromise on? For every couple the answer to this question will be different, of course, but it’s an important question for every couple to answer.

As you decide on the details for your wedding day, you’ll need to prioritize things. Creating a “must have” list can help you as you go further into your wedding planning, too.

belaire-flowers-wedding-must-have-inspiration

For example, if two of your vendors have conflicting schedules, a must have list can help you decide what you need to do. It can also help you remember what is the most important element for your day, whether it’s flowers, music, or something else.

Of course, whether a specific bloom is at the top of your must have list or not, you’ll want to have fabulous flowers for your Wisconsin wedding. We’ve helped many couples create the perfect floral arrangements and bouquets for their wedding day. If you want to know how we can help with yours, get in touch today!

Should Your Bouquet Have More Than Flowers?

A bridal bouquet can be beautiful in many different ways, and that can mean including some non-floral elements. This is a wonderful way to add creative touches to your bouquets, and tie the bouquet into your theme.

bel-aire-sparkle

One popular choice is to include sparkly elements, such as crystals. This gives a bit of extra visual interest to your bouquet. When the light hits your bouquet, crystals or glitter touches can make it seem to light up from within.

You can also include decorative elements like butterflies. These can give a natural effect as you walk down the aisle. They can also be included in centerpieces for a lovely addition to your tables.

Of course, many bouquets combine many different elements to come up with a gorgeous design. Every bride, and every wedding, is unique and the bouquets should be, too.

Flowers for the Groom

Chances are good that you’ve thought about what flowers you want in your bouquet, but haven’t given much thought to what flowers your groom is going to wear. While it might not require the same amount of thought, there are plenty of options available.

Rose

  • A classic single rose. This might be the most traditional bloom for the groom — and the other male members of the wedding party — to wear. It’s elegant, but still relatively understated. It can also come in a variety of colors to match your scheme.
    Orchids
  • Dazzling orchids. For something a bit more exotic, consider an orchid or two. They have a bit more to them than most single bloom styles, so are great for a tuxedo with tails, or a style with a cravat that will overwhelm a smaller style.
    Green flowers
  • A combination of flowers and greenery. This can be done in almost any size, and can give a great effect. The look is almost of a small bouquet, which can add some extra interest to the style.

Whatever style you’re considering, get in touch to find out how we can help with the flowers for your Wisconsin wedding.

Flowers for Your Wedding Hairstyle

According to a recent survey, 73 percent of American women felt that their wedding day was their biggest hairstyle moment. Of course, everything about your wedding day is important, but when it comes to your hair, we think it’s a great place to add a floral touch for something really special.

Wedding Hairstyles Using Flowers

Flowers are synonymous with weddings, and they work great as part of wedding hairstyles, too.

  • Consider the flowers in your bouquet when choosing flowers for your hair. They should coordinate, not clash.
  • Go understated so that you don’t overwhelm your dress and face.
  • A single bloom can give a more formal look, while a chain or cascade of smaller flowers can be better for relaxed styles.
  • Another option is to wear a floral headband or tiara, which can give a natural touch to your wedding day style.

Whatever style you’ve chosen for your wedding, dress, and hair, there’s a perfect option for working flowers into your look. With years of experience, BelAire Flowers can help any Wisconsin bride find the perfect flowers for her hair, so give us a call today!
