To trail or not to trail?

I am talking about the ribbon on Callies bouquet you guys...

I mean...come on!! Can it get any more beautiful?

Lately I have just felt so so lucky to have the honors of working with the best of the best couples. Ones who are perfectly balanced between knowing what they love and trusting me to make magic happen.

Last week Callie left this review on google.

"Janine created bouquets for our wedding day that surpassed anything I could have even dreamed of. I had absolutely no idea where to begin with florals, and she was so kind, listening to all of my random ideas along the way. I had SO many compliments throughout the day on how beautiful the arrangements were (lots of people even thought they were fake because they were so perfect!) 10/10 worth the investment. I can’t recommend her enough!

Today I want to chat about trailing ribbon on bouquet handles. The look is not perfect match for every bouquet style, but it certainly stole my heart on this one. Can you spot it here? This dusty pink silk ribbon was a perfect match for the quicksand roses paired effortlessly with a touch of amnesia rose. To me it adds a touch of wispy romance to the bouquet, and to the overall feeling that comes from this garden style wedding bouquet. These stunning photos were captured by one of the many talented photographers who is based out of Lloydminster, Sarah Thorpe Photography ! Once again she did an amazing job!!

To boot, Cole and Callie also hired a videographer to help capture their day, This is when you really get to appreciate the gentle flow of the trailing ribbon. Of course, details such as the trailing ribbon are also a huge addition that is noticed by all the guests on the actual day too. It is not all about the "after", but so often the day passes like a dream, and so the memories captured by photo and video play a big role. The way it moves as you walk down the aisle, or gently flows in the wind. It adds romance friends, and a touch of added grace to an already stunning bouquet.

Trailing ribbons can be subtle or can stand out by changing the color. Callie chose to draw the dusty pink tones out of her bouquet by choosing a colored ribbon. Some choose to keep things a little less noticeable, by using a color that matches the brides gown. Either way, I promise you, it will be noticed. There is just something about it that captures attention.

I think it is safe to say, that during consultations, the one thing brides often have not thought of, and in some cases have never noticed, is the ribbon detail on the handles of the bouquets. It is a simple thing, but friend, the impact is great.

I hope you have the best day, and if you are wedding planning, happy planning friend.
