There is something so enduring and romantic about getting married at the beach! Beach weddings remain one of the most popular types of celebrations. Couples can opt to keep things super casual and low key, joining with family and friends in a relaxed and informal day, or they can opt for a more formal affair with elegant touches including a tent and a sit down meal at another location. Beach wedding flowers can be vibrant and fun, or pale and elegant depending on the overall goal and theme of the event.

Seashells, starfish and small anchors are the perfect choice to accent your beach wedding flowers and tables. They are readily available at dollar and craft stores and are easy to add to a vibrant bouquet, to scatter on tables, or to add to your centerpieces. (Mini starfish are also very sweet for attaching to your guest place cards.)

You can even use sand and seashells to fill inexpensive glass vases for your beach themed centerpieces. Order beautiful bulk flowers to fill the vases.

Two of the most iconic color schemes for beach weddings are blue and white, which gives a more nautical, crisp air, or tan and white, which evokes images of sand and bright sun. Try beautiful blue centerpieces and bouquets from BunchesDirect, such as Classic Blue Hydrangea bouquets, Heavenly Mist bouquets, or Blue Hydrangea Centerpieces.

Building a wedding arch or even a small canopy of some kind helps set apart the place for your vows during the ceremony. This clever construction evokes the idea of driftwood. Use beautiful fresh bulk flowers to decorate your arch and give it that special touch. Try white roses (sold by the stem or by the box at BunchesDirect), or white carnations if you love what’s shown!

Another amazing idea for your beach wedding flowers is to order beautiful bulk flowers and create a heart on the beach to surround the wedding vows. A high contrast color like red will work nicely and lend an added touch of romance. Try red roses, red ranunculus, or red gerbera daisies. You could even do this using bulk red rose petals!

Other sources suggest that Mariah wants a summer wedding, and that boyfriend James is picking up the entire tab. Considering he is worth approximately $4.7B this is probably a fair plan. Her engagement ring is stunning: a massive diamond approximately 35 carats in size worth a reputed $8M, from jeweler Wilfredo Rosado.

The pair have been dating since June 2015 and reportedly fell in love last summer when Mariah, 45, visited James, 48, on his super yacht, Arctic P., off the coast of France.

The couple spent Christmas vacation in Aspen and enjoyed time with Mariah’s four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, her children with former hubby Nick Cannon.

New rumors are now circulating that the pricey pair want to be married in Australia, where casino-owner Packer is from, or else in the south of France. to pay homage to where they met. (These are the kinds of problems to have!). Packer hails from a media mogul family and is reputed to be one of the richest men in the country.

Popular American Idol alum Colton Dixon married in Nashville this month, to his lovely girlfriend Annie Coggeshall. Chrisitian singer Colton, 24 and Annie, 27, tied the knot in a black tie ceremony on Friday January 8 after three years as a couple. The event took place at the Scarritt Bennett Center before 160 of their friends and family.

Photo from Gospelherald.com

People.com provided several exclusive photos of the wedding, and described it as having both “fantasy” and “fairytale” elements. Apparently the fairytale began with the couple’s romantic September engagement at Disney World (Colton even hid the engagement ring in Cinderella’s glass slipper).

Photo from People.com

The “fantasy” element came into play based on Colton’s love for batman and other comic book heroes. Apparently Colton even has a life-sized batman costume at his home. Colton’s mother Teresa gifted her son and his groomsmen with superhero t-shirts to wear under their wedding attire, adding a wonderful playful and personal touch to the couple’s beautiful day.

Photo from ok.co.uk

Annie wore a stunning strapless organza gown by (who else?) renowned designer Vera Wang, that was truly Cinderella-worthy. Colton’s sister Schyler Dixon shared her own snaps, with the caption ” “Beautiful bride #coltannwedding.” She also performed the gospel favorite How Great Thou Art during the ceremony.

Colton admits that he wept when he first saw Annie come down the aisle. During the ceremony, romantic Colton then serenaded his new bride with Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love.

The couple’s exit at the end of the night included another fairytale element: Colton and Annie departed together in (of course) a horse-drawn carriage totally reminiscent of a classic Cinderella coach. If you loved Annie’s bridal bouquet, you can certainly get the look for less with BunchesDirect. Try Together We Stand or Cheerful Blast with Wild at Heart Centerpieces, to complete your own fairytale florals.

We wish Annie and Colton all the best as they start their married lives!

There is often something special about a country wedding. Whether it’s the more relaxed informality, the venue where Mother Nature usually plays a bigger part of the event, or the many down-home touches, a country wedding will almost certainly provide you and your guests with fond memories. Popular venues for a country wedding vary widely, from rustic farms, elegant vineyards, relaxed gardens, tranquil forests, or scenic mountaintops  Anything goes so long as it has a more rustic, outdoor connection.

The flowers are an important decor element in any wedding and certainly this is true for country events. Choose flowers that are less formal and fussy to reinforce your country theme. Excellent choices include daisies, chrysanthemums, sunflowers, baby’s breath, roses, carnations, gerbera daisies, ranunculus, or hydrangeas.

Wooden accents can add to the “country” vibe in conjunction with your wedding flowers. Use more informal vases such as these mason jars set on top of wooden tree trunk trays to add to your rustic look. These daisies and yellow craspedia are the perfect choice for flowers.

Another way to incorporate some wooden accents: place wooden “stumps” or wine barrels along your wedding aisle, whether indoors or out, and top with beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers and greenery.

Jane Medley Flora Design

You could also use wooden ladders to create a wonderful frame for your vows. The rustic informality of the wood provides good contrast to the delicacy of the flowers and gives your venue a relaxed touch. Roses or carnations in various pastel colors work well. Try seeded eucalyptus or leatherleaf fern for more casual looking greens.

Buy some bulk flowers such as simple carnations and perhaps some baby’s breath, add a piece of fabric in your theme color, and wrap with burlap to create your own country rustic boutonnieres. (See more ideas like this at Great American Country).

Galvanized metal buckets, wine bottles, woven baskets or even old cowboy boots are other creative ways to display your country wedding flowers. These buckets filled with simple but beautiful baby’s breath frame the aisle chairs and create the perfect (and extremely budget friendly!) rustic accent for the bride’s grand entrance.

Sunflowers are always a wonderful choice for a country wedding! Their cheery relaxed look is a perfect complement to a barn or farm venue.

Table settings can be more relaxed at farm weddings, making your guests feel right at home. Use casual tableware and glassware with colorful linens, or even old quilts. Choose simple bouquets of flowers such as these yellow roses and white stock to stay in keeping with the more casual vibe. You can also choose a pre-made country centerpiece—just trim the stems to fit your container of choice.

Mason jars can serve many functions at a country wedding (you can even use them to serve your signature cocktails). Wrapped in lace and wired for hanging, they are a sweet decorative touch when strung from tree branches, arbors, gazebos or other elevated areas. Try a mix of bright casual flowers such as purple dahlias or ranunculus, pink carnations, purple alstroemeria, and white chrysanthemum daisies.

Puppy Love Bouquet BunchesDirect

Pretty bouquets of mixed bloomes can also provide the perfect more informal touches to your wedding party. Opt out of formal or fussy cascading bouquets with a lot of symmetry and structure and keep things more relaxed.
