The empire-waist dress became extremely popular for brides around 2006.  The silhouette is perfect for tall slim brides, or brides who want to show off their pregnant belly.  Brides looking for a Greek or Roman goddess look tend to be swayed towards the empire waist.

Empire Waist DressIn our previous blog we discussed the type of flowers that would suit an A-line dress the best.  In this blog we will highlight some of the top flowers that accompany the empire-waist wedding dress the best.  Like picking out the right dress that suits your body type, certain wedding flowers complement dresses better than others.

Hand tied bouquets can complement the simplicity and elegance of this type of dress. Hand Tied Bouquets are the more casual type of wedding bouquet.  Their exposed stems at the bottom of Calla Lily Bridal Bouqetthe wedding bouquet add a natural and simple look to this bouquet.  Almost any type of flower can easily be incorporated in hand tied wedding bouquets.  Hydrangeas and roses are perfect flowers to use in hand tied wedding bouquets for brides wearing an empire-waist wedding dress.  Calla lilies also can be used in a hand tied wedding bouquet.  Calla Lilies are beautiful, simple and elegant and their Champaign flute-like shape help draw one’s eyes towards the bride’s face.  Brides can use many or just a few calla lilies in their wedding bouquet to create this elegant effect.

Rounded Rose Bridal BouquetRounded Rose bridal bouquets are very classic wedding bouquet that goes well with almost any type of dress silhouette.  Since this wedding bouquet is slightly more traditional we suggest brides to make their statement with this bouquet by choosing a colour that suits their wedding the best.  Greenery is also usually added in rounded rose bridal bouquets to accent the beautiful rose arrangement.

Cascade wedding bouquets can also complement empire-waist wedding dresses.  We suggest to our brides to try to keep these wedding bouquets rather small.  If the bouquet is too large it can overpower the dress and compete with its simple lines and natural beauty. Roses, Orchids and Lilies are among some of the most popular flowers used in cascade bouquets.  Bulk Delphinium, hypericum berries, snapdragon, limonium , statice, solidago are other flowers that can be used as fillers because they have multiple blooms per stem.  These flowers also add colour and length to a cascade bouquet.  Greenery such as, Tiki Tree Fern, Ruscus, Lily Grass, Leather leaf, Bells of Ireland, and Bear Grass are also very important in providing the shape of wedding bouquets, including cascade wedding bouquets.

Summer weddings used to be all the rage. Everyone wanted a  beautiful, sunny, warm wedding day, but quickly autumn is racing forward  becoming the most popular season for weddings, particularly October  (which has replaced September as the most popular month to get hitched).  The beauty of the autumn months creates a lovely backdrop for all  weddings – but it makes dressing up difficult when you want to be warm  too. fallHere are three helpful autumn trends to keep you stylish, yet warm at any fall weddings you may be attending.

Skip the boots: Boots are  big in the area of trends  this year, from cute ankle boots to sexy knee highs – a girl has plenty  of options when she is boot shopping. However, one option that is not  available is wearing them to a wedding, no matter how casual the wedding  may be. Even in the fall, strappy heels, peep-toe pumps, and  traditional pumps are appropriate. Most weddings require cocktail attire, and boots are definitely not part of traditional cocktail  attire. Dressing up is fun; find a gorgeous pair of heels for a friend’s special day!

Cover your shoulders: In the summer it’s great to be  able to wear strapless dresses, halter dresses and other –less dresses  without having to worry about getting cold. In the fall, however, you need to keep warm and often dresses don’t provide enough coverage to keep you adequately heated. This year Pashminas and wraps are very
popular, but shrugs seem to be on the way out of the fashion foreground.  Many dresses are sold with a coordinating wrap for cooler weather, but if the dress you purchase isn’t you can always purchase one separately.  Especially hot this year is contrasting and bright colours.
Have a black  or brown dress? Match it with a bright wrap for bang of colour to your  ensemble.

Go for a feminine sweater: Sweaters are a great way  to keep warm and are always super cozy; however, they can sometimes make  a cocktail dress look too casual. Sweaters are great to wear when you  are travelling to the wedding, from the wedding to the reception, and  back home again, but don’t wear it during the ceremony or at the
reception – you want to look dressed up and fancy, so don’t let a  cardigan bring down your fashionable outfit. When you are choosing a sweater to wear, look for something feminine with small buttons, low-key embellishments or ruffles, plus make sure you choose a colour that will  compliment or contrast your dress, the same way a wrap would.

Wedding Flowers and Bridal Bouquets that Complement the A Line Wedding Dress Silhouette

A-line wedding dresses are very common for many brides.  Luckily there are many wedding bouquet arrangements that suit this type of dress.  We recommend rounded wedding bouquets; hand tied wedding bouquets, and cascade wedding bouquets.

Rounded bouquets are suitable for roses or spray roses accented by dispersed greenery in the wedding bouquet.  Roses, especially spray roses, are small enough to completely cover the wedding bouquet, creating a bulb-like effect.  Greenery is usually added in rounded rose bridal bouquets to accent the beautiful rose arrangement.  This type of wedding bouquet usually has the rose stems wrapped in ribbon or contained in a handle, for a more formal look.

Hand Tied Wedding BouquetHand Tied Bouquets are a more casual wedding bouquet than rounded bouquets because of their exposed stems at the bottom of the wedding bouquet.  Almost any type of flower can easily be incorporated in hand tied wedding bouquets.  Gerbera Daisies, Roses and, Calla Lilies are perfect flowers to use in hand tied wedding bouquets for brides wearing an A-line wedding dress.

Cascade Bouquet for an A line DressCascade bridal bouquets can be created in various sizes.  For brides wearing A-line dresses, small to medium size cascade bouquets are most appropriate.  The cascade wedding bouquet should be no wider than half the width of the skirt and should be no longer than twice the width of the bouquet.  Any larger and the bouquet will masque the dress significantly.  Many different flowers can be used in cascade wedding bouquets.  Roses, Orchids and Lilies are among some of the most popular flowers used.  Bulk Delphinium, hypericum berries, snapdragon, limonium , statice, solidago are other flowers that can be used as fillers because they have multiple blooms per stem.  These flowers also add colour and length to a cascade bouquet.  Greenery such as, Tiki Tree Fern, Ruscus, Lily Grass, Leather leaf, Bells of Ireland, and Bear Grass are also very important in providing the shape of a cascade wedding bouquet.

When creating or picking out your wedding bouquet, use colours and seasonal flowers that match your personality and wedding theme.  This will make your event unique and
memorable for all your guests.
