Christmas Wedding Number 3

This wedding went for a frosty wintry look - which certainly suited the day as it was bitter cold out! The bride wanted a classically elegant bouquet with fragrance so we used gardenias, roses, and imported lilacs. Yes, lilacs. Not a flower you expect to see in the winter, but a few stems become available at the holidays.


The maids had pewter colored dresses and ivory pashminas (wish I had photos of them, it was a lovely look) so ivory roses, white tulips and stock accented with silver brunia (those cool gray berries from Africa) and dusty miller foliage fit the bill. All tied up in pewter satin ribbon with silver bullion wire wrap accent.


And our flower girl carried a snowball of mums with a frost covered handle - cool!

Thanks! I have to say, those maids bouquets were some of my faves from 2009.

Not only did I love the ivory, white silver, gray look more than I expected to, but I kept thinking how that combo would look great with so many other dress colors - all the soft greens, blues, purple and lavender, anything pink...

I love the bouquets! And what a great look to have the snowflakes on the handle of the pomander.

Thanks all! It was nice to have some Christmas weddings, including a teeny tiny Xmas Eve city hall wedding, but I can tell you, I'm dreading delivering one tomorrow with the crappy weather we're having...

Makes you want to reconsider your requirements for winter weddings - like they should only be in town!
