Floral Friday – Love-in-a-Mist

Happy Halloween, and Happy Floral Friday! Today’s blog is based off of the flower with the nickname Love-in-a-Mist. Commonly call Nigella, this beautiful flower starts off as interesting puffs, which open into rich toned straw-flower like blossoms, and change into equally attractive seed pod. This whimsical flower is best known for its vivid blue blossom, but can also be found in purples, pinks and whites.

Want to add a touch of blue to your floral? Natural blue Nigella’s would be the perfect flower to pick for that extra dash of color. Finding the natural blue is few and far between, so it’s definitely a treat when using them in any flower arrangement.

It’s becoming a trend we are seeing more and more of. Incorporating flowers into your up-do will definitely make some heads turn. I love this combination of Scabiousa, Nigella, Brodiaea, Anemone and Trembling Grasses. The combination of natural flowers is a beautiful natural look.

Antler Decor Treasures

Antlers are such a great decor piece because it can encompass so many designs to put that final touch on your centerpiece. If you and your loved one are planning a garden, woodland, or whimsical wedding theme the antler can truly shape any decor. Take a look below at how other couples have used the antler in their escort card displays, cake displays, and centerpiece displays. We have used them on quite a few accounts and I think it is worth considering while drawing out your decor plan.

Bridal Styles That Will Dazzle Any Dress

If you have already chosen your dress then I’m sure you have been pondering what types of hair styles would fit best with your cut. I was scheduling multiple hair trials this week and pondering what styles our brides are looking for? So I decided to research some to show you! I have chosen buns, half ups, pony tails, and down styles to show how they might fit your look.

Elegant and classic, perfect for a button up dress.

The twisted messy bun, I love this for a simple veil.

With so many styles it is difficult to pick which works best for you, but have fun with it during your trial. Ask for a hairstyle you would have never thought looked good and who knows you might end up loving it! This is one of the best parts of the process, getting glammed up and pampered, who doesn’t love that?!
