Flower Girl

The tradition of a flower girl began in Ancient Rome, where the flower girl serviced the bride and groom by carrying wheat and herbs. This was to bless them with prosperity and fertility.  Throughout Western Europe, the only people who attended the bride were those of youth. So all of the attendents in the wedding party were children.The most notable of flower girl visions is the Victorian flower girl, a young, little girl in a white dress carring a basket full of rose petales.

Sunset Shades

Blossoms in brilliant autumn colors that reflect the intensity of a desert sunset are best displayed with minimal foliage.A beautiful palette against almost any of today’s rich dress colors.

Fall bouquets of warm yellows to rusty reds are perfect when carried against dark colors like brown, navy or black.

Rose Romance

The glorious rose has been the sentimential flower of choice for brides for many years. The multi veriety bouquets embody the nostalgia of grandmother’s cutting garden including everything from hybrid teas to clustered floribundas. In creating these classic bouquets, blended colors of roses in varying states of openness are chosen to coordinate with the coloes of the dresses.

Bridesmaids

The bridal party is a tridition that has been established for many centuries.For a longtime the pourpose of the bridal party was to fool evil spirits. The bride’s friends dressed similarly to her in order to confuse any virulent presences that might be lurking about. Today bridesmaids are there to suppor the bride in the stressful times during the wedding.

Tossing the Bouquet

Tossing the bouquet is a tradition that stems from England. Women used to try to rip pieces of the bride’s dress and flowers in order to obtain some of her good luck. To escape from the crowd the bride would toss her bouquet and run away.wedding at the DCA - Darien CT
