YES LOVE, YOU HAVE TO WEAR ONE...and THIS is why!

Boutonnières sometimes get overlooked when it comes to weddings.  There are so many decisions and details that have to be thought through to make your wedding day the perfect day - but do not give up on persuading him to wear a boutonnière, they are important!  And one of our favorite floral details!

If you are having a Black Tie wedding, make sure to compliment the elegance of the day with the flowers you choose.  For these two, we even wrapped the stems in black to compliment their threads.

We love to make each boutonniere custom and unique.  If your groom is not into wearing a more "floral" boutonniere, no problem!  How about incorporating fresh Hops...we do live in Colorado!

Try not to be afraid of color, it can really pop off a grey suit, or compliment a tie!

And those little ring bearers, they defiantly need to be recognized and given a little boutonniere!

Have you ever thought about using some non floral elements?  What about using a succulent or an air plant - that can really compliment his more manly personality!

It is also important to consider what season you are getting married in!  This boutonniere really screams WINTER WEDDING!

My BEST Friends Wedding xo

Do you remember that moment, when you looked up and connected eyes for the first time...with your soulmate?  I sure do.  Summer before Kindergarden, circa: forever ago, I joined my first organized sports team, terrified to be partnered up with a gross boy - and there she was, the most beautiful red headed 4 year old in the world!  And I have had the pleasure to call her my best friend for over 25 years.  Her recent adventure to Hawaii with her Mr. Smith is the furthest geographical distance we have ever had between us.  Here is a Lace and Lilies tribute to the kindest, most uplifting, not-afraid-to-take-chances and live her best life, friend.

When Alyse and Matt told us they were engaged, we knew we would be a part of their quaint, laid back, spiritual celebration!  The details, perfectly represented their love story.  The wedding took place in the Smith family's backyard, the most unique, loving and personalized ceremony, dinner served from a food truck, and dancing all night in the grass...with no shoes on!  If only we could do it all over again...

The Bride's dress, a BHLDN blush, strapless dress - with a personalized heart sewn into the back, from her late father's blue tie.  The Groom, complimenting her in a sharp grey suit.  The flowers, a bouquet of baby's breath, with a touch of pink astilbe.  The bouquet wrap, another piece of her father's tie...just the perfect thing to be holding onto, while walking down the aisle.

We adored the little nuggets walking so wide-eyed down the aisle!  

When planning a wedding, there can be so many decisions and people to think about along the way.  What I really admire most, is that Matt and Alyse never let that get to them.  Their love was always present and everyone could see it!

A gorgeous day, for the loves in my life!  We were so happy to have celebrated their love with great family and friends!  Weddings are a part of our everyday lives, but it is not everyday that the couple is so close to our hearts!  Cheers to a lifetime of adventures together, your young spirits and passion for living a good life - inspire us everyday!

A special thanks to One O.A.K. Photography for the perfect photographs, Citrus Salon for the hair, and Steele the Spotlight for the killer make up!

IT'S A WRAP...

...a bouquet wrap!  

For those of you who have question marks floating around your head...a bouquet wrap is what we tie around the bouquets stems, to add that extra touch and to hide any floral tape that may be showing.  Lace and Lilies always encourages our brides, to incorporate something fun, stylish or sentimental when it comes to the bouquet wrap.  Not only do the Photographers love the extra details, but so do we - the importance for us to capture our clients personalities is a must!

Let's start with a fave, photographed by DeFiore Photography.  This deep and textured bouquet includes Purple Artichokes, an Air Plant, Flowering Kale and Thistle.  To keep up with the blue, purple and greens, and especially the fun textures - we wrapped this bouquet in moss!  

The very opposite of our more natural wrap would be something like this killer bouquet, photographed by Lori Kennedy Photography, styled by Embellish Productions.  Romance in the woods, yes please!  This bouquet has Roses, Dahlias and Hanging Amaranthus, complete with fun+bright ribbons!  The Hanging Amaranthus and the hanging ribbons are a match made in heaven. 

On the flip side, some of our brides are looking for a more sentimental touch.  Our beautiful Heather really wanted us to incorporate family photographs into her Pride and Prejudice inspired bouquet.  Having those in your hand as you walk down the aisle, really take care of any nerves.  Harper Point Photography really captured it perfectly.

Other ways we have made sure to remember someone special is with these two bouquets. 

DeFiore Photography  captured this beautiful moment.  This fun and colorful bouquet included a ring from Grandma.

One O.A.K. Photography  made sure to snap a photo of this very special detail...a bouquet wrapped in a tie from Dad.  The perfect way to know he is with you walking down that aisle.

Lace and Lilies always says the bouquet wrap is a fantastic way to tie in a color or texture from your wedding that is not possible to get in the cut flower world.  Who hates velvet?  No one we know!  Check out this stunning wrap photographed by our dear friend from Honey Bee Photography (Dress by Dora Grace).

Maybe your getting married in the mountains, by a river, in the woods...twine!  Maybe you want us to match your dress...lace!  Or maybe your very mod wedding requires some pattern...chevron!
