Pop the Bubbly! Recapping Our FW21 Mag Release Celebrations

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021

Pop the bubbly and celebrate with us as we recap our FW21 mag release events! We always look forward to these special days where we hype up the debut of a brand new magazine issue, gather with the hardworking vendors who made each page come to life and just have FUN! Because we have vendors spread out all over the state, we actually hosted two separate events at Tulsa Garden Center’s Mansion at Woodward Park and Parlor OKC to ring in the new issue, each day full of merriment and gorgeous details! Jadyn Noelle Photography captured ALL the amazing memories for us so we won’t soon forget these two incredible days! Go behind the scenes with our team and the Oklahoma wedding community below.

 

At our Tulsa brunch event, Just Catering by Orr supplied scrumptious small plates, with Blue Label Bartending taking care of the bubbly and libations and Flour Cookie Co. coming in with the cutest custom cookies showcasing our logo. It’s not a BOO party without a stunning setup –  Party Perfect decked the rooms of Tulsa Garden Center’s Mansion at Woodward Park in dusty blue linens and an awesome lounge area alongside florals by Gorgeous Blooms. Laurel and Marie created a perfect photo backdrop wall adorned in a balloon installation by Cheers My Dears Events, and the vendors were serenaded by live music from guitarist Tye Slagle. The morning was made even more special by seeing our vendors flip through the new issue.

 

The following day, our team gathered with our Oklahoma City area partners for a happy hour at Parlor OKC! The private party space served the absolute best apps and cocktails for the celebration. Gorgeous Blooms and Flour Cookie Co. were back again with their incredible centerpieces and favors to go alongside the festive balloon installation by Puffed Up, displayed behind the night’s musical entertainment, Brandon Taylor. MVP Photo Booth was set up for those must-have photo moments – you can see all the party pics here! Cheers to a brand new mag full of real weddings, spectacular wedding inspiration and all the helpful info you’ll need to plan your dream day!

Thursday, April 15th, 2021

If thinking about wedding florals has you overwhelmed, you’re not alone! Not sure where to begin? Well, first – we recommend seeking the expertise of an experienced Oklahoma wedding florist who can help you dream up something amazing – but beyond that, start by thinking about the type of bouquet you’d like to carry! Knowing these main types of wedding bouquet shapes and sizes can help you decide on an overall floral vision for your big day. Let’s get to it!

We’re breaking down eight major types of bridal bouquets you’ll see in today’s weddings to get you inspired and help you narrow down which type you’re drawn to most. Whether your style is more traditional or more whimsical, the perfect wedding bouquet awaits!

Round Wedding Bouquet Shapes + Sizes

Round: Just like the name implies, round bouquets are nice and spherical, and typically consist of either one type of flower or a monochromatic palette, if multiple florals are used. Often, the stems are wrapped in a silk ribbon that coordinates with the wedding’s color scheme. Classically chic and super-traditional, round bouquets have been popular for decades upon decades!

Biedermeier: A spin on the usual Round bouquet. Think concentric circles, each circle comprised of a different type of flower, and often with the stems exposed.

Pomander: For the bride who’s not afraid to buck the trends, the pomander bouquet is like a little basket of joy – a floral ball of happiness with a handle, carried similarly to a purse! Comprised of florals + greenery, these can work for bridal bouquets but are more typical for bridesmaids and flower girls, as they’re usually slightly smaller.

Posy: If minimalist is more your style, consider a posy bouquet. With less greenery and mostly petals of a similar color, posy bouquets pack a punch in a smaller package and make for a beautiful classic look. Another great bridesmaid style, as well!

Whimsical Wedding Bouquet Shapes + Sizes

Hand-Tied: Meant to look organically gathered and tied in a simple manner with looser ribbon, fabric or even twine (as opposed to using wire to create a tighter appearance), hand-tied bouquets can feature multiple types of florals and greenery and are a great way to incorporate multiple colors, especially if you’re going for a boho or garden-style wedding.

Cascade: A dramatic vertical shape makes the iconic cascade bouquet an eye-catching statement-maker. Popular in the 1980s but making a giant comeback in today’s modern weddings, a cascade bouquet’s steams are hidden and appears to flow downward – an excellent way to accentuate a dress with an amazing train!

Freeform: While most wedding bouquet shapes tend to be more vertical in nature, freeform bouquets are often more horizontal, are loosely tied with gorgeous ribbon and often incorporate gorgeous greenery, a wide variety of flowers with varying stem lengths, and are perfectly imperfect – purposefully asymmetrical and imbalanced. One of our favorite ways to WOW with flowers!

Nosegay: Like the Posy, Nosegay bouquets are smaller, hand-tied bouquets that also work well for bridesmaids, and tend to feature more greenery, rather than being petal-heavy. A joyful arrangement that can work for multiple seasons and styles!


Now that you’re an expert on the most popular wedding bouquet shapes and sizes, it’s time to nail down your top favorites and meet with a florist. Here’s our list of local faves for you to peruse!
