Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

Royal Wedding Mood Board

Royal Wedding Mood Board-2866

Was anyone else inspired by the Royal Wedding this past weekend? Honestly, I’m sad it’s over! We won’t have another royal wedding for a long time! Although there were elements of the wedding I would have altered (not about the small bouquet trend–more is more!), I thought it was breathtaking in its entirety! To keep the fun going a little bit longer, we put together a Royal Wedding Mood Board inspired by the special day of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Aubrey Hepburn, lush foliage and English Gardens, and a muted palette create a beautifully timeless wedding. We also put together a lookbook for the wedding, complete with everything you need to put together a royal-inspired wedding! What was your favorite part of the wedding? We want to know!

Cinco de Mayo Paper Wedding Bouquet

Cinco de Mayo Wedding Bouquet

If you haven’t heard, we’re creating a new paper wedding bouquet every month for all you brides to be out there! We kept it clean and simple last month with a white stunner that would work for so many different styles. This month’s bouquet is far more colorful and perfect for a more casual, lively gathering! We’re calling it our Cinco de Mayo Paper Wedding Bouquet! Poppies, daffodils, tulips, and a few kumquats come together to create a bright and springy bouquet. We’ve provided templates and step-by-step instructions so you can recreate this lush beauty for your next event! It looks lovely in a vase as well!

Paper Flower Wedding Bouquet

Paper Flower Wedding Bouquet

March has arrived, which means Spring is on its way, which means wedding season is upon us! Do you have any weddings to attend this year? Perhaps you’re a soon-to-be bride? Either way, you probably know flowers are a huge part of weddings and for good reason. Blossoms and blooms have the power to create dreamy settings, lovely pops of color, and can determine the style and mood of a wedding. The downside? They cost a pretty penny. So if you’re the type of bride that would rather spend time creating rather than spend money on a florist, this Paper Flower Wedding Bouquet is for you!

Inspired by the gorgeous work of Yasmine Floral Design, one of my favorite florists, we made a bouquet of Coral Charm peonies, Billy Balls, and lots of greenery. Tied with a lovely silk ribbon, no one would ever know this bouquet wasn’t real! Plus, it lasts long after the big day. Now you’ve got an heirloom wedding bouquet that you can have for years to come. Just set it in a vase or use it as a centerpiece!

Artifact Uprising Wedding Invitation and Macaron Eiffel Tower favor

Macaron Eiffel TowerAny excuse to go to Europe is a good one and it turns out I hit the jackpot! My brother-in-law, who lives in Denmark, is getting married in October to a lovely girl from France. And yes, I think you know where this is heading…We’re going to France for a wedding in the fall! Dreamy, right? Of course, I had to get involved in some of the preparations, and thankfully the bride and groom were generous enough to include me.

So we teamed up with Artifact Uprising to create a wedding invitation with an elevated design and timeless appeal, perfect for a classic Parisian wedding. The invitation is a no-frills design ideal for the modern bride or groom who may not be drawn to the traditional bells and whistles of a more extravagant invitation suite. Inspired by the beautiful blue invitation and the romantic Parisian wedding setting, we created a Macaron Eiffel Tower Favor! This little treat is perfect for an engagement party or wedding favor and goes great with the invitation! Remind me why I didn’t get married in Paris?
