This summer has brought us many fun and exciting weddings. Most recently, we had two tropical inspired weddings. Both utilized the same concept but took different approaches.
This is a great example of why each wedding is so special to us. Even two weddings that pull inspiration from the same idea or item can be executed completely differently. This allows for endless possibilities when it comes to flowers. And with each unique event, we get to provide something original and special.
Approach #1: Classic with a Tropical Twist:
Our first wedding was able to utilize tropical flowers by way of centerpieces. All of the reception centerpieces contained white Dendrobium Orchids. These orchids are quite popular wedding flowers and fall into our tropical category because of where they originate. Dendrobium Orchids are native to Thailand, China, Japan, India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, New Guinea, Vietnam, and many of the islands of the Pacific, including Hawaii. Not being native to America means that they are eye catching, exotic & unique while still being easily recognizable. Dendrobium orchids are one of the most affordable of the varieties of orchids available.
With mostly white flowers, this wedding was perfectly timeless and classic with a touch of tropical.
Approach #2: Whimsical & Fun in the Tropics
Our second wedding took a more direct approach to tropical by incorporating a beach theme into the centerpieces. For this wedding we paired our designs with some of the bride’s DIY centerpieces for a themed our look.
We provided the “palm trees” for this beach themed wedding and the bride brought the sea shells. Our robellini “palm trees” stood tall and made a wonderful tropical statement. While the bride’s sea shell and candle center pieces brought the theme together for a fun, beachy look (the only thing that was missing was the sand and the bugs!)
These weddings allowed us to create tropical inspired looks in two totally different ways, challenging our creative minds to design something new for each bride. And that is what inspires us to dream big, and make it happen.
Thank you for your checking in with us. We can’t wait to see what the rest of this wedding season holds!
