The French Bouquet Blog
inspiring wedding & event florals

The French Bouquet is always reading up on the latest trends, fashions, and design styles from all around the globe. One particular designer who we like to read up on, Preston Bailey, recently shared a gorgeous centerpiece overflowing with heavenly white Phalaenopsis Orchids. We love orchids and are always doing very unique and intricate designs with this beautiful bloom, so when we came across Preston Bailey’s latest Phalaenopsis masterpiece, we just had to make it the focus of one of our inspiration boards this week! If you’re a bride looking for a classical and perfect to-a-T wedding design in full-on white, then you’ll love this board!

Earlier this year we designed an absolutely gorgeous wedding at The Mayo in downtown Tulsa with Zinke Design and used luxurious stems of pristine, white Phalaenopsis Orchids for centerpieces, very similar to Preston’s here. The effect that Phalaenopsis Orchids have on a design is priceless. It’s regal, sophisticated, and simply stunning!

White Orchid Wedding - The French Bouquet Inspiration Board

We would like to send a thank you to Ace Cuervo Photography, Zinke Design and Icing on the Top, for some of our orchid photos, as well as cake and votive photos in our inspiration board today. We would also like to credit the following photographers, blogs and sites for the inspiring images: Love and Lavender, Simply Rosie Photography, Style Me Pretty, Anne Marie Photography, B Magazine, Brosnan Photographic, Lovely Bride, Gia Canali Photography, and, of course, Preston Bailey for the large orchid centerpiece.

And since inspiration is flowing everywhere today, we’ve decided to take the fabulous bouquet from yesterday’s post (the champagne and ivory dream) and make it the center of an inspiration board. We bring you love in the colors of Champagne, Ivory and Blush. Sahara Roses and dainty hints of Baby’s Breath, or even white baby budding Ranunculus, petal-pink Spray Roses, and so many more blooms, would be perfect for a wedding with this softly-hued color palette. And oh the fun you can have with the bridesmaid dresses! We really love these soft, feminine shades and hope to inspire with this board all of you brides and designers working on a similar color palette. And, of course, the coral Wishing Well guest cards / book from the fabulous Zinke Design featured is a must-have for this design! For more from Zinke Design‘s Bridal Line click here.
