Today’s Bouquet Inspiration by Violet was done on Polyvore! Very fitting since we are hosting a contest on Facebook, using Polyvore Mini-Editors, where you can create your wedding inspiration board for a chance to win $500 worth of premium, fresh cut, wedding flowers! But, let’s get back to the bouquet inspiration… This Inspiration can be done in several different colors. Violet is showing Hot Pink, but it can be done in white, yellow, peachy orange, pink, and purple and can be done in pale or hot shades! Plus, $550 will get you all these flowers, which is enough to do a whole wedding! Bouquets, centerpieces, and more!
Wholesale Flowers used in this Inspiration:
- Stock – Hot Pink – 70 stems
- Snapdragons – Hot Pink – 100 stems
- Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lilies) – Hot Pink – 100 stems
- Lisianthus – Medium Pink – 100 stems
Here is the breakdown of how you can use the flowers, of course, you could do some re-arranging if you need more or less of certain pieces! For the Bridal Bouquet, Violet used, 7 stems of Stock, 9 stems of Alstroemeria, 7 stems of Snapdragons, and 7 stems of Lisianthus. She also recommends using the green “babies” of the Lisianthus for additional textural elements. And it’s especially good for a garden look. For three Bridesmaids, Violet suggests making each bouquet out of a single type of flower, for instance, she would make one Bridesmaid bouquet out of 9 stems of Stock, one Bridesmaid bouquet out of 9 stems of Snapdragons and one Bridesmaid bouquet out of 12 stems of Lisianthus. Next, we could make 6 Boutonnieres and 4 Corsages, each Boutonniere would consist of 1 stem of Stock (you will only need a portion of the stem), and some Lisianthus green babies, and each Corsage would consist of 1 stem of Stock, 1-2 stems of Snapdragons and 1-2 stems of Lisianthus. Now, lets talk Centerpieces. We could make 10 Centerpieces with each one consisting of 3 stems of Stock, 7 stems of Alstroemeria, 6 stems of Snapdragons, and 5 stems of Lisianthus. This would make nice, lush, garden-y centerpieces! Finally, we could make 2 Altar or Ceremony arrangements. Each Altar/Ceremony arrangement would contain 7 stems of Stock, 9 stems of Alstroemeria, 7 stems of Snapdragons, and 12 stems of Lisianthus.
