Still Trending: Vintage Lace & Burlap

As we head into the 2014 wedding season the projected trends are becoming more concrete in terms of colors, themes and details for weddings. Lace and burlap is still extremely popular among brides whose weddings fall into the following categories: vintage, country chic, rustic, barn weddings and romantic but casual outdoor affairs.

Burlap was the #1 stem wrap of choice for all the weddings I did last year. Bridesmaid’s bouquets were wrapped with burlap while most of the bridal bouquets were a combination of burlap and lace treatments. I also incorporated the burlap in corsages and boutonnieres so that the whole look was cohesive. Burlap can be used as table runners, banners or wrapped around vases. Adding lace to any of these adds romance and softens the look instantly.

Using a satin ribbon with rhinestone gems with a hint of twine keeps this stem wrap from being too “country”

Nature’s Rainbow Wedding Flowers

Oregon has such natural beauty and it creates a gorgeous, green backdrop for many a wedding. For this reason, and the ongoing trend of wildflower & colorful wedding flowers, many brides are choosing mixed colors for their wedding. This transpires as either color groupings or mixed colors in all the bouquets and arrangements.

These mixed color weddings are best for outdoor weddings since they have a more casual, eclectic feel. The mixed wildflower style pairs well with popular burlap and lace and works for both modern & colorful weddings or a bride who is going for more of a vintage feel.
