The “Sorbet” Look: Modern and Fun Wedding Flowers

“Sorbet” wedding flowers and bouquets are sweet, sassy, young and fresh.  A combination of rich pastels and bright hues, this look stars a radiant punch of lemon and buttercup yellows with a pop of deep coral against a backdrop of blues, spearmint, lavender, and a rich dove gray.  Bridal bouquets and flower arrangements feature florals and accessories with geometric modern shapes and graphic patterns, with the feel of an updated “mod” 1950’s and 1960’s vibe.

We are always excited when one of our DIY’ers shares their DIY wedding flowers with us. Especially with such a tough wedding color, blue! This beautiful DIY wedding was on a winter day in Wallington New Jersey. Anya Foto Photography captured the classy blue and white wedding. Go visit Anya Foto Photography to see the full wedding, the blue bridesmaids dresses are a particular favorite!

It can prove  difficult to incorporate blue flowers in a design. In fact, there are only a few blue flowers that occur in nature. This blushing bride went with blue delphinium. Other options include blue iris, blue hydrangea, and spray tinted flowers. In 2014 navy blue is going to be a popular wedding flower color. Pantone color reports and blogs are excited to publish blue and nautical themed weddings! So keep an eye out for these designs and maybe used this as inspiration!

When you start planning a wedding you tend to plan DIY wedding flowers after the big stuff. You set a date, book your venue, make a guest list, buy the dress/ tux, pick colors, and get a photographer. It is not until later that you start to plan details like flower decor. Many times, couples decide on DIY wedding flowers early in the planning process but not think about the flowers, colors, or placing an order until a month or two before the wedding. This is normal and even preferred! After all, flowers are part of nature, you they are cut only a few days before you receive them.  Here are some suggestions that will help you plan and execute gorgeous DIY wedding flowers while keeping your stress levels down.

DIY Wedding Flowers

1. Don’t worry about flowers until you know the following information:

  • Your Wedding Date – this will help you select flowers that are in season. Check out our Flower Availabilities Chart to see what is available around your wedding date. If you don’t see a flower you want on that chart that means the availability varies every year, contact BloomsByTheBox for more information.
  • Your wedding theme – you can pick flowers that will match your wedding theme, you can even shop for flowers by style like vintage wedding flowers, rustic wedding flowers, classic wedding flowers, and even whimsical wedding flowers.
  • Your wedding colors – you cannot begin to plan for flower arrangements until you know what colors will compliment your wedding. Remember flowers are a part of nature and certain varieties are only available in limited colors. Picking the flowers will only work once you know what colors you can use, then picking varieties become a cake walk.
  • How many arrangements you need – Once you know how centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and other decor you will need flowers for you can calculate what flowers are affordable in the quantities you will need.

2. Pick flowers that will work for you.

  • Simple is always in season- Don’t get hung up on elaborate designs. Keeping a look simple can actually make it look more fine tuned and professional.
  • Use lots of greenery- it will make your arrangements look fuller and save you money.  Especially if you are planning a garden themed wedding, lush greenery can make a really classy, romantic flower design.
  • Get your family and friends to help – DIY’ing your flowers should be fun. Gathering your bridesmaids, family, or helpers together to be creative is a great pre-wedding activity.

3. Planning flower quantities doesn’t have to be difficult!

  • Read our Bouquet and Arrangement Flower Quantity Chart, it will teach you how to calculate about how many flowers you need to make your desired size bouquets, centerpieces, and decor.
  • Give yourself a little bit of room for error. If a couple flower stems break or do not rehydrate like others you will want a few extra flowers.
