Vintage wedding flowers
Posted on April 28, 2014 at 10:00am
Our vintage inspired bridal bouquet was packed with Amnesia roses, Ocean Song roses, waxflower, lisianthus, berried eucalyptus, dusty millar and Mikado spray roses
The vintage vibe is so big in wedding flowers, I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it! Amnesia and Ocean Song roses always steal my heart, and the berried eucalyptus is just heavenly. Combine these beautiful colours with lots of texture, as we did here. Waxflower is so versatile, with its soft ivory star shaped flowers providing a subtle lemon scent and with the silvery sage green dusty millar it ensures the roses are the stars of the show but with the relaxed vintage country garden vibe.

These vintage flowers can be re-created for your wedding day in different shades to suit your colour scheme. For me the key to creating a vintage bridal bouquet is keeping the flower selection simple, but using all sorts of foliage to soften the flowers. Some of my favourite foliages include berried eucalyptus, jasmine trails, clematis, passionflower trails, dusty millar and in the winter tons of skimmia.
I love the romance of roses, especially in your bridal flowers, go for lots of different tints and tones to stop your design feeling too formal. Different sized roses also help create that chic vintage vibe, if you’ve ever spoken to me about flowers you will know I am a complete spray rose addict. My all time favourites (yes I have 2 because they are both just so beautiful) are Bombastic and Majolika. Both are just the perfect shade of ivory and blush. Delicious!
