#wedding color pallets are trending to the softer hues for #bridal party flowers.  These soft romantic hues include, cream, porcelain, peach, champagne, blush, baby blue, lavenders and sarchuse or minty greens.  Check out our Memorial Day #wedding to see how these soft tones are captured in beauty & grace.  This particular #wedding-flower style was accented with minimal sunny yellow to highlight the #garden look. http://pinterest.com/pin/427138345886014158/. 

What wedding-inspiration inspires you? If you’re more of a bold #bride who tends to be drawn to bold colors, go ahead and let those hues carry you down the aisle.  The smile of confidence you’ll have will speak volumes as bold bright colors are definitely you.  A must see is the wedding flowers we did recently for a bride locally that was bold and beautiful featuring blue roses and stark white flowers, a true look of distinction  . http://pinterest.com/pin/427138345885982033/

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.


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.


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.

If you’re planning a wedding in the Milwaukee area, give us a call today to find out how we can help you design the perfect bouquet for you!

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!

Melissa Gilbert Marries Timothy Busfield

Opting for a Wednesday wedding and a stunning red gown, Little House on the Prairie star Melissa Gilbert married Thirtysomething star Timothy Busfield this week. The couple were engaged over the holidays, and it is the third marriage for both of them.


The couple chose an intimate ceremony at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, a popular choice for celebrity events. There aren’t too many details about the wedding just yet, but from the few photos that have been made public, it looks like it was a very classy affair.

Melissa’s bold red dress was probably the stand-out of the wedding. The strapless dress’ fitted bodice was matched perfectly by its softly tiered full-length skirt. The flowing and elegant style suited Melissa perfectly, and she told People that she chose the color because of its meanings – passion, fire, and love.

While we haven’t seen photos of many of the flowers, it looks like she’s matched her dress with a bouquet of mixed red, white, and purple flowers. If you want to know what flowers will work perfectly with your wedding dress, give us a call today!

Succulents Make Stunning Wedding Flowers

Looking for something a bit different than the usual roses and baby’s breath? Why not consider succulents for your wedding flowers?

Succulents are a great addition to wedding bouquets and centerpieces. They can also make great favors for your guests to take home and enjoy for years to come. They are also one of the most eco-friendly choices for your wedding flowers, as they can be replanted after your wedding.

Succulent Wedding Flower Ideas

You can also work succulents into bouquets with other flowers. The rich leafy look of the succulents is beautiful alongside the deep reds, purples, or whites of more traditional wedding blooms.

Succulents can make great wedding flowers because they also come in so many different varieties. They range from a wide variety of greens to whites, purples, and pinks. They are also available year round, which means you don’t have to worry about seasonal availability like you do with so many types of flowers.

If you want to use succulents in your Milwaukee wedding flowers, let us know! We’re happy to help put together your perfect wedding day flowers!

Wedding Budgets Are Up

Weddings can be expensive, and according to the Real Weddings Survey, the amount spent on weddings has increased for the second year in a row. While there’s some variation by region, and many couples go above and below the averages, the numbers give some interesting insight.

Wedding Budgets

In addition to the figures in the graphic above, couples also spend an average of nearly $2,000 on their decor and flowers. This might seem like a lot, but it is worth thinking about what that will generally include.

Decor costs can include everything from table cloths to lighting. It can also include other rentals, such as chargers, chair covers, and flatware.

Flowers are a big part of most couples’ wedding dreams. From the bride’s bouquet to the reception centerpieces, they’re something that makes a wedding so very special.
