Unique Bouquets – Blacks, Beads, and Twig

Black is always a sharp wedding color when incorporated with white and is slowly becoming a very popular theme. In fact, Ashlee Simpson carried a bouquet and had centerpieces made of black roses. Well, mini calla lilies also come in a black variety called the Black Schwarzwalder. However, they are actually deep purple in color but look almost black when they are fresh. As they age, they lighten to a rich purple color.

Unique Bouquets - beaded bouquetI have to admit this is perhaps the most unique bridal bouquet I’ve ever come across. Pictured here is a bouquet of 30 beaded stems made of galvanized silver wire hand-wrapped with beading up top. The beads seen here are Celestial Crystals, though the seller says Swarovski crystals can be substituted. Interested? They also make matching boutonnieres. This bouquet incorporates green twig dogwood throughout the otherwise classic bouquet. This was all about black classic bouquet now let’s see what Lauren from academy florists shares on making of unique bridal bouquets.
