#BWorleyTips: Centerpiece No-No’s!

Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 3.40.12 PMHey Ya’ll,

I’ve got another quick tip for you inspired by your questions!

Q: What’s the biggest No-No in terms of selecting my wedding flower arrangements?

A: Make sure your arrangements are not too tall for your guests to see over while seated so that they can easily converse.  Nothing is worse than looking into a centerpiece and not being able to see the rest of the table.

Spring Wedding Inspiration!

Screen Shot 2014-03-31 at 4.24.55 PMHey Ya’ll,

Spring is finally here and for me, that means one thing: wedding season!

To kick things off, I thought I’d post a few of my favorite pins from a vibrant Spring Wedding board I created on Pinterest. The image above is what started the pin-fest off –the green, peach, pinks and corals and cream all scream “SPRING!”. It’s an image pinned via an LA-based wedding photographer’s Instagram by the name of Samuel Lippke.

After this, I fell down a rabbit hole of dreamy pink gowns…perfect for hopelessly romantic spring brides. The dress above is by Maggie Sottero. The dress below is MXM Couture.

Next, continuing with the trendy pink theme for spring, I think all of the bouquets in the image below work really well with a pink, blush or cream gown.

You can also dress your bridesmaids in different hues ranging from pale pink to deep purple.

As far as flowers go, peonies are usually all the rage for a spring wedding! Although, I think this DIY hanging-terrarium display puts a new spin on the tradition–adding succulents to the mix for a dash of green.

I also love the idea of citrus-y flavors, like these grapefruit and cucumber cocktails via JoytheBaker.com

Or this tantalizing rubarb mojito recipe via ShopTerrain.com.
