Getting the perfect wedding flowers often feels like a daunting task. We all eat cake and buy dresses, but few people work with flowers often enough to possess the necessary skills to create that flawless magazine look.
By learning a few easy tips and tricks you can put a personal touch on beautiful blooms for your big day.
You may be asking yourself, “What exactly is a wedding cone?” Well, it’s an incredibly multipurpose and inexpensive addition to your wedding decor that you can easily make yourself!
I made the wedding cone (below) one afternoon and styled it as a wedding favor by placing it into a champagne flute. It fit perfectly and looked great! All that's missing are the treats inside that could be wrapped in cellophane and tied off with a ribbon bow.
You can also use a paper cone to house petals or confetti and then distribute them at the ceremony to guests. These dainty cones are perfect for the reception snack table as a vessel for pick-me-ups and other goodies because they're the perfect size and shape for munching while mingling.
At one time, the corsage and boutonniere reigned supreme. Any self respecting lady would never attend holiday church service without a proper carnation corsage and likewise, a true gentleman would adorn himself with a buttonhole gilded in babies breath.
Why did the traditional corsage fall out of fashion? The answer to this is that trends have changed and today's bride-to-be is accustomed to personalizing every aspect of her perfect day. She would never ask a florist to wrap a big red rose in babies breath and ferns to create a gaudy corsage that would be strapped to the wrists of unsuspecting wedding goers.
