When it comes to fresh white florals on your big day, you may think that pale roses are your only option. While white buds rule tried and true, these Utah florists play mix-and-match to show you the endless possibilities when it comes to your bridal bouquet.
1. All-Frills with Allison Baddley
In a shoot for our 2019 print, Allison Baddley of La Fête Floral showcases atypical beauties like luminaria, astilbe, fuzzy grasses and skeleton fern to steal the show. Mix them all, for an all-frills handheld garden.
“This is a very seasonless look,” Baddley explains. “You can use most of these flowers any time of the year. Spring, winter or fall. they even work in the mid-summer when you’re wanting to cool off.”
2. Less Base, More Bloom by Lush Floral Company
3. Warm It Up, Darling Floral Co.
With Utah being so cold and snowy this year, photographer Cassandra Farley wanted something that dripped with warmth, sunshine and joy. Luckily, florist Maddy Fairbourn of Darling Floral Co. had the perfect recipe: classic bridal blooms mixed with tropical favorites like antrhuriums, orchids, alstroemerias and sword ferns.
“When you think tropical, you might first jump to bright colors,” Fairbourn says. “But using all one color, especially white, makes [the bouquet] feel more modern and sophisticated.”
And we love clean, modern vibes coming from this arrangement! Take a page out of Fairbourn’s asymmetrical book for a bouquet that will dazzle both up close and from a distance, without sacrificing your clean color palette.
4. Perfect Pairings, by Campus Floral Provo
From “Here Comes the Bride” to “Almost Too Pretty to Eat,” Campus Floral nailed every detail of this sparkling Knot & Pine wedding. The bouquet, bursting with petals and greens alike, wows the senses and lets every guest know who the center of attention should be.
Meanwhile, dainty stems and fuzzy leaf friends adorn tables and treats, bringing even more rustic flair to the venue.
5. Timeless Neutrals by Rachael Ellen Events
When planning this wedding, the bride wanted to stray from any sort of theme or color palette. Planner and floral designer Rachael Affleck loved the challenge to create something timeless and classic while staying true to the bride’s personal chic aesthetic. Affleck shares the design process:
“We opted for a classic black, white and silver palette that allowed for the beauty of the mountains to stand out.”
“I can’t forget to mention the 22 hanging floral installations in their clear tent complete with orchids and roses. We opted for hanging pieces to allow the tables to be primarily covered in candles so the dinner would have an intimate glow to it. It was a lovely night for a wonderful couple.”
“As far as the design goes, my favorite element has to be the black cake with white sugar flowers. Cassidy of Flour & Flourish created the most impeccable white orchids, ranunculus, tulips and garden roses to adorn this classic cake with a modern twist. The black felt unexpected yet totally timeless, which I loved.”
