inspiring wedding & event florals

Today at The French Bouquet we’re in the mood for design that is sumptuous, elegant and romantic, where eclectic-vintage meets sophisticate-chic: Marie Antoinette -Inspired, so to say. The romantic-eclectic-vintage theme has been on the rise among brides and event designers and since it’s all the fuss, since it’s absolutely stunning, and since it’s on our design-minds today we just had to share with you this delightful wedding we did this past June.

Artworks Tulsa Photography was so kind as to capture some photographs for us while we designed the floral layout for this beautiful wedding at the Oaks Country Club. We love how the light is caught on all of the arrangements. The sumptuous purple shade of the Blue Curiosa Roses is absolutely breathtaking, and the fine detail picked up in all of the various shades of Yarrow are magnificent!

In complete elegant-chic and Marie Antoinette-fashion the candelabras used for the tall centerpieces for this fabulous wedding worked very well at the Oaks Country Club and with the overall floral design. We used a three-centerpiece-sized-combo for this wedding’s design. By using a variety of centerpiece sizes we not only introduced various textures to the design, but we helped make the romantic design organically  flow throughout the large room with its angles. With the large, main hall expanding towards an extended room which opens onto the terrace before the golf course, it was key to bring in a variety of centerpiece sizes throughout, so as to keep the design flow smooth throughout the entire venue. Where we had high-peaked-ceilings in the large area of the hall we chose to mix a variety of tall centerpieces with lower ones. The four-tiered candelabras provided excellent height for the tall centerpieces, as well as added an extra texture to the design element. They are very romantic and vintage-chic, and their tiers make these centerpieces more than a tall centerpiece. They’re more expansive with gorgeous definition, making for the perfect addition to this beautiful room. And bringing in the low centerpieces throughout the main hall provided further design definition.

To make the design feel like one flowing unit throughout the entire venue we incorporated a third size of centerpieces. We brought in these adorable and quaint centerpieces in the most petite romantic-garden pots and lined the banquet-style dining tables. We incorporated some low centerpieces from the high-ceilinged area of the room into this expanded room, which really tied everything together superbly!

The overall design effect with the three sizes of centerpieces, the tall and romantic candelabras, the petite garden pottery, the rich purple of the Blue Curiosa Roses, the chic cream and light pink Sahara and Vendela Roses, the minty sprigs of Dusty Miller and the antique Yarrow? In Marie Antoinette and French Bouquet style we have to say, “Magnifique!” What do you think? Are you thinking about a romantic Marie-Antoinette-style design for your wedding and reception?
