Small white flowers for sun

Closeup of small sun flowers

These romantic wedding arrangements are deliberately formal, with a twist: a mass of tiny frosted pearls are hidden in the boutonniere and bouquet.

A winter wedding is an ideal time to use flower design that is restrained and feminine, simple and soft. It's worth showing the bride how to hold her bouquet correctly: its weight should draw her arms down naturally so they are straighter, allowing the flowers to be shown off at the best angle.

How to Arrange the Boutonniere

Sprays of wired pearls tucked between delicate spray roses lift this boutonniere out of the ordinary.

1. Wire the roses and ivy leaves. Gather several wired pearls into a spray and bind the wires together with stem tape.

2. Group the individual roses, arrange the wired pearls around them, and encircle them all with the ivy leaves. Trim the wires so they are graduated, wrap stem tape around all the wires and press the tape down with your fingers to seal it.

3. Mist the roses occasionally to keep them fresh until they are needed, then supply the boutonniere with a pearl-tipped pin to attach it onto the lapel of a jacket.

How to Arrange the Bouquet

This bouquet is a large spiral-stemmed design with pearls scattered through it. It has a high binding point to give it a compact look.

1. Divide the different ingredients into separate piles. Hold a rose and add one of each of the ingredients at an angle to create a spiral effect. Turn the bunch in the same direction as you work, and add lengths of wired pearls.

2. Add all the blooms in turn so that they are balanced equally throughout the bunch. Arrange the last two layers of flowers slightly lower around the edges to create a domed effect.

3. Secure the bunch with a length of raffia or string. Trim the stem ends with garden shears. If you want to cover the stems with ribbon, wind a long length of white ribbon down around the stems and up again. Tie the two ends together in a small knot and press pearl pins in a vertical line into the ribbon to secure it and create a pretty detail. Mist the flowers occasionally until needed.

Just what i had imagined :)
dress was the very first one i tried on, my ex did most of the planning for the wedding...i didn't care about the little stuff...just wanted something small, just family surrounding us on the quietest morning on the beach you can imagine. i just wanted to be carrying my fav flowers...plain white daisies and nothing more and i was barefoot.
halfway through the ceremony..the sun opened up and shined right on us. the ocean was still and dolphins started leaping out of the water in the distance right during the "i do's"
it was a fairy tale wedding
