Greens Goddess

It’s Magazine Monday, friends! Here’s a closer look at this bouquet from our glossy pages that’ll have you green with envy.

Here’s a floral trend to befriend: Greens Bouquet

Monochromatic and “all greens” bouquets have power because of the way they showcase the size, shape and texture of each component. And if your wedding has an Italian flair, a greenery bouquet will fit perfectly because of the culture’s strong emphasis on herbs and greens.

Mandy Ogaz, owner of The Potted Pansy, created this green dream using a collection of ferns, leaves, ivy, eucalyptus, sage and berries. “Monochromatic bouquets are perfect for a bride who wants to be understated,” Mandy says. “A monochromatic bouquet won’t pull the focus from her, but will add to her beauty.”

Pick of the Tips

Invest in Inspiration “I’m almost heartbroken when a bride chooses a single photo to inspire her wedding bouquet or centerpieces,” Mandy says. “While you may love that image, you are mimicking someone else’s special day, instead of creating your own. Try selecting a handful of images you love and pull a variety of amazing details from those images to create your own look and ambiance. That way the day will be yours — not just a copy of someone else’s. Allow your florist to pull the best from those images and find common threads in them.”

Beat the Heat “There are always flowers that struggle in direct sunlight or high-heat situations,” Mandy says. “Typically, I can avoid problems if you explain where the arrangements will be placed. Arrangements in direct will withstand more heat and sunlight than those without water.”
