Get What you Want from Your Florist –Pro Tips from The Bloom Room
Once a bride knows her colors and venue, it’s time to plan the flowers. The Bridal Extravaganza Show tapped The Bloom Room to design bouquets for the summer billboards. The Bloom Room’s owner and designer, Kya Heinen, suggests brides look in magazines for floral inspiration. “Not to copy what you see, but more to get an idea of what your style is,” she says, and bring that to your florist.
It’s also a good way to see what the latest color tends and flower choices are for the modern bride. “Dark purples are still hot,” Kya says. “So are non-traditional color combinations like platinum and pewter.” Kya notes a return to simplicity and a tendency toward vintage looks. “A bouquet off all colors is a take on doing clusters,” she says. “Cluster technique resembles gathering flowers from a garden,” she says.
For the vintage bride, soft yellows, creams, champagnes and silvers can be combined with broaches. Some brides will provide broaches that have meaning to them. This is not a typical design and adds a meaningful touch to the bouquet. “I love doing unusual things, and I love the way these colors play on each other,” she comments.
“For the Billboard Bride shoot we played on the bright colors, great for spring, summer, really anytime of the year,” she says. “These colors are very festive and fun,” she says. “They put a smile on your face.”
