Bride Bouquets with Garden Roses and so much more!

Believe it or not I do have a few bride's that come to me and say "I don't want any roses in my wedding bouquet." Believe me, I get it. They do not want to feel like they are walking down the aisle holding a run-of-the-mill Valentine's Day bouquet of roses. First, take comfort in knowing that I don't do run-of-the-mill. Second, there is a reason the rose is such a standard in our industry - because so many of them are just...so...gorgeous! Most bridal bouquets are not just one variety of flower (although that is something like for the bridemaid's bouquets - single variety bouquets can make a stunning impact). Adding Garden Roses, or some of my other favorite roses, to almost any bridal bouquet can really take it from ordinary to extraordinary.

In hopes of re-opening your eyes to the splendor of the rose, this post is going to show some of my favorite rose inspired bridal bouquets...and just in case this doesn't work for you and you still do not want any roses in your wedding bouquet - don't fret because I love those too! Between peonies, orchids, protea, lily of the valley, anemones, ranunculuses (ranunculi), hydrangeas - there are so many other beautiful flowers!!! *ok Karen take a deep breath* sorry just got a little excited - so much to share, but there's only one of me - I'll make another post highlighting those bouquets soon!
