How to Make your own Bridal Bouquet

How to make your own bridal bouquet

Oh, how I love flowers! They’re just the icing on the cake when it comes to every special occasion, most specifically a wedding. They manage to bring everything together: the colors, the theme, the feel. After I picked the theme for my wedding, Scandinavian Garden, I knew that the flowers were going to be a huge factor in creating the look I wanted. Can’t have a garden without flowers! I wanted a bouquet that would look almost as if it had been plucked fresh out of the ground: very whimsical, asymmetrical, and full of wild flowers.

Luckily, I found a florist, Erin Keller of Urban Chateau Floral, that I was able to work with on a more personal level to create my dream bouquet. After working with her side by side, I’d recommend this to every bride! Erin shared some floral design tips with me, asked me my opinion as we went, and made sure the bouquet was perfect in every way. I thought I would pass along those tips to how to create your own bridal bouquet! You’ll have some basic guidelines for creating gorgeous floral arrangements, whether you’re getting married or not. Flowers are always in season!

Exclamation Point Bridal Accessories

Bridal accessories

Usually, when a woman first gets engaged, her thoughts turn to the wedding dress. It can be a difficult process to choose the perfect dress: You often have to try on dozens of dresses, visit multiple shops, it may take months to ship, and there are almost always alterations for size and customization. Have you ever seen “Say Yes to the Dress”? It can get pretty intense! I was lucky, or maybe crazy (?) because I bought the second dress I tried on. Nevertheless, it can be an overwhelming process, enough so to make you forget about accessories. No wedding look is complete without the accessories! Michael Kors said, “I have always thought of accessories as an exclamation point of an outfit.” Every bride wants exclamation points, right? I got the prettiest shoes and jewelry from BHLDN to add the exclamation point to my wedding dress and I couldn’t be happier. They are right in line with my Scandinavian Garden theme. I have a few tips when it comes to choosing your accessories

Make a wedding inspiration board

Wedding Inspiration Board

Rebecca here with a wedding update (see part one here) ! We’re nearing the big day and luckily I feel cool as a cucumber! The major decisions have been made and I’m enjoying the process of seeing all the details and components come together. There is still plenty to be done, but I feel like I have a handle on things. How is that possible?! I’m just as floored as you are! I am fully aware of the stress and anxiety that many brides-to-be often feel while engaged. Trust me, I’m no stranger to these feelings. I was anticipating being overwhelmed, even expecting it. Worrywart is my middle name.  However, I’ve realized that taking a few initiatives in the very beginning of the wedding planning process have made a BIG difference. My number 1 suggestion? Make a wedding inspiration board! This is extremely helpful for a number of reasons…

Crepe Paper Flower Girl crown

Rebecca Young, who has been working with Lars since last summer, and came on full-time earlier this year, recently got engaged and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. We love throwing parties but for one of our own, we are over the moon! Rebecca lived in Sweden for a year and a half and loves all things Scandinavian just like me and her wedding is going to be one lovely Swedish garden. We will be documenting her wedding details along the way. Oh man! It’s got me wishing I had another opportunity to plan another lovely party myself. Stay tuned for all the juicy details starting with her flower girl crowns. Here she shows you how to make them.

Hello! I’m giddy to be able to share a few glimpses inside of my wedding planning process. Planning can be stressful and wonderful and a roller coaster of emotions, but I’ve figured out a few tricks and tips that have helped me along the way. I’ll be going into more details on that later, so make sure to check back! But for now, I’m kicking my wedding series off with this crepe paper flower girl crown that our four nieces will wear on the wedding day.  I wanted it to capture the Scandinavian garden feel of my wedding, highlighting the main colors and the whimsical nature of the wedding. I love that each girl will have a memento of the wedding day to keep. They turned out lovely and will be even sweeter on my darling nieces!

DIY get away car paper garland swag

DIY paper garland swag for wedding get away car

One of the perks to living and working in Provo, Utah is a nearby university, which supplies us with some talented and hard-working interns every semester. I’m so lucky! And because I went to the same university myself, I get to see them interact in a similar environment, though they’re much cooler than I ever was (or am! ha!). Some of them are already married, getting married, or super close to getting married, which I definitely didn’t do in college (ahem, late bloomer here…) and it’s fun to hear about what’s going on in this phase of life. We have one who will be getting married soon and we came up with this DIY paper garland for her car send off at the wedding. Isn’t it beautiful?!

Their exciting phase in life also reminds me of some of the harder parts of newlywed life like budgeting or buying a car together. Such a big decision! We’ve partnered up with Capital One, a trusted auto lender to so many that has an Auto Navigator® site that makes it easy to find your dream car by giving you the option to “test drive” your different options of term length, price and vehicles.
