In San Diego wedding magazines you will undoubtedly see many ads for beautifully crafted wedding gowns that bear names of all the top designers. Most certainly you will also find advertisements for breathtaking ice sculptures, all kinds of rental agencies that will permit you to rent tables, chairs, and reception facilities, as well as help in securing that perfect limousine for the trip from your San Diego wedding location to the location of your party. Yet nothing will make a prospective bride catch her breath more than the copious displays of bouquets.
Considering the beautiful landscape and temperate climate of San Diego, wedding magazines have caught on to the fact that many indigenous flowers and plants can be incorporated into bouquets that also feature exotic flora.
Bridal bouquets are of course the focal point of any flower arrangement that will feature prominently in a wedding. In San Diego, wedding vendors and especially florists have long since known that the artful combination of spray roses, snapdragons, gerberas and asters will provide a beautiful handheld bouquet for a more mature bride, while the more simplistic gathering of roses, carnations, lilies and also some indigenous broadleaf foliage will do wonderfully for a very young wife to be. For the bride who wishes to radiate the purity of her wedding gown, a bouquet made up of white roses, white carnations and broadleaf foliage makes for a breathtaking complement to her white gown. Very often seen in San Diego wedding magazines is the floral combination of red roses and stargazer lilies interspersed with eucalyptus leaves. The magnificent reds of this arrangement make for a strong focal point, and the size of the bouquet can be adjusted to be in proportion with the wedding veil, height of the bride, etc.
As you can see, there are quite a few flower arrangements that feature prominently in the wedding ceremony. Yet what can you do about the decorations? Granted, the bouquet is the center of attention, yet when you page through one of the many San Diego wedding magazines, you will see time and again that equal attention is paid to the decorative flowers for the reception, the ceremony itself, and even the attendants.
Did you know that brides in San Diego, wedding magazines notwithstanding, more and more often choose the whimsical approach when it comes to decorations for the reception tables? It is true! Vases filled with white daisies, chrysanthemums interspersed with pink roses, and rounded out with baby's breath are very popular centerpieces indeed. An even more simplistic approach is the vase filled with white orchid blossoms, white roses and a single sprig of a green broadleaf.
Even boutonnieres have undergone a change in style. Gone are the days when chrysanthemums made up the majority of the displays. These days these little gems are exquisitely fashioned from camellias and stephanotis with a small leaf fern to complete the ensemble.
Of course, there are many more flower combinations that grace the pages of San Diego wedding magazines, and the wise bridal party will consult with a florist to meet and exceed all their floral needs and wishes for that once in a lifetime occasion.
