#BouquetBreakdown - The "Alexis"
Another day another bouquet breakdown. Today we're here to breakdown our first bridal bouquet we ever made for a real wedding! And yes, today is their first anniversary! This beautiful bride dreamed of blush and white fluffy peonies and garden roses. After seeing this bride in person we couldn't have imagined a more luxurious and posh bouquet for her dreamy day.
So why do we love this bouquet so much?
Besides the bouquet having such a special place in our heart for being our first bridal bouquet ever, we love the simplicity of it. The clean and simple design really allows for the bride and her dress to be the center of attention.
So what's in this bouquet?
Not a lot to be honest. Once again the simplicity gives this design the high-end feel.
Blush & White Peonies: Peonies are 100% the most highly requested flower for weddings and bridal bouquets. We'd be lying if we said we didn't love them from the bottom of our hearts. They also tend to have a connotation of being super expensive and unattainable for lower budget wedding couples. Well, myth busted! We are finding more and more that peonies are becoming more available and more affordable every year. Peonies are typically only available from May to early July but the season can be extended into August and even sometimes the first week of September depending on the Alaskan weather. We give peonies $$$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
Tsumugi Wabara Garden Roses: We think these are the hidden gems or the garden rose world. They are the perfect pale pink. Not to bright but not to blush. They have large heads and open up to a soft swirling interior. While they aren't to fragrant their beauty more than makes up for it. Tsumugi wabara garden roses haven't been on the scene for very long. They were just put into cut flower production in 2018. They are available year-round and we give them $$$$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
Have we changed your mind on the big greenery heavy boho bouquets? Sometimes the clean and simple all flower bouquets are 100% the way to go.
