September 21, 2009

Well, I have decided that since this is my blog, I can stray off the path of royal wedding flowers whenever I see fit. I am feeling a bit exhausted on the royal info. that is until I do some more research.
The pic here is of a bride that was one of my nicest clients, and no, I don't remember her name, it was so long ago (10 years) when I had my own wedding flower business in San Francisco. I love the white and green combination here in traditional bridal style is seen so much in royal weddings. The wedding took place at The Presidio Chapel, San Francisco on a bright spring morning in April. It was a lovely affair. The bouquet consisted of white roses, white fressia, white lisianthus, Lily of the Valley, white calcynia, stephanotis, and variegated ivy.
Royal Wedding Tidbit of the day... It caused quite a stir when Queen Victoria wore a white wedding gown... at the time, royal brides typically wore gowns of gold or silver, commoners typically wore darker gowns that could be worn on other special occasions. The young queen had set a trend that is still the norm for brides all over the world, wearing white on their wedding day.
