Budget-Friendly, Beautiful Bridesmaids Bouquets

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Our recent Facebook post on one bride’s baby’s breath bridesmaids’ bouquets got lots of y’all talking—some loved ’em, some…not so much. One commenter suggested carnations instead, if budget was an issue. Which got us thinking: There are so many options for bridesmaids bouquets that are both budget-friendly and beautiful. The key is sticking with one or two simple, striking flower types, and taking a monochromatic approach (a pop of accent color is fine). Check out some of our favorites right here, and make sure to Pin to your wedding inspiration board or share with your florist.

HWB Hearts: Chic, Classic Navy Blue

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Listen up, sophisticated brides: Navy blue was MADE pour vous. Whether you like your navy nautical-cool (navy, white, red, gold) or New-England-classic (navy, ivory, green, silver), navy, aka the new black, is among the hottest “anchor” hues for 2012 and 2013 wedding palettes. Combo it with coral and cream for a totally modern color scheme. Or marry it with lilac and pewter, with accents of delicate lace. Our favorite navy touches include navy-blue wedding shoes, like Nina’s jeweled, peep-toe Elke pump in “True Blue;” a navy grosgrain ribbon belt for your classic wedding gown; tabletop touches like dark-blue glass bottles and votive holders; and all manner of b-maid bounty, from navy chiffon shifts to striped clutches. Are you planning a navy-based palette for your big day? Comment here!
