7 Ways to Wear Fresh Flowers In Your Wedding Day Hair

Fresh flowers aren’t just for your bouquet and centerpieces. Consider adding them to your wedding day hairstyle. Get a whimsical look with a fresh flower crown or go classic with a few simple white flowers tucked into an updo. One tip for the taking: Do a little homework before you decide on what flowers to use. You may love ranunculus but they’ll wilt in the matter of an hour. So choose a heartier flower — amaryllis, succulents and orchids are all durable options. Here, a few of our favorite brides who pulled it off!

Wrapped Around A Bun

Start with a bun — high or low — then ask your stylist to pin flowers all the way around the base of the bun. Small filler flowers like bouvardia, stephanotis or waxflowers create a soft, romantic look, while medium-sized blooms in bright colors make the style whimsical.

This weekend we worked on the wedding flowers for a lovely couple who got married in Ardfield Church near Clonakilty. The floral selection was built around the “Memory Lane” rose. Here are a few pics we snapped on the day;

A big thanks to Siobhan for popping by with a cd of these gorgeous pics from her wedding in May, which took place at The Rectory in Glandore. We loved working with Siobhan on her flowers, we adored her orange & white theme, and how cute is that page boy with his turquoise jumper!?

Romance is Blooming

10 Jun

Gosh, the months seem to be flying so quickly here at Daisy Chain! We’ve really been enjoying working with lots of brides on their weddings this year, and are super excited to get busy on the ones yet to come.

Adare Manor Table Arrangements

We recently had the absolute pleasure of working on a beautiful, soft & romantic wedding at the magical Adare Manor.

Unity 1

The scent of the flowers in the church (Crecora, very near Adare Manor) were amazing! Peonies, David Austin Roses, Tea Roses & Freesia, all visually complimented by perfect hydrangea, viburnum & foliages.

Peonies

All the bouquets were a combination of white, pale pink & pink peonies. Yum!

In May we created this buttonhole & bouquet for a bride who was having an intimate wedding in Glandore. “Sweet Avalanche” has to be one of our most favourite pink roses, it is just so pretty! Teamed with gorgeous lemon-scented waxflower gave it a bit of a vintage feel.

Blue & White Button Phil

“Blue” flowers can be tricky, but not at this time of year! Right now there is an abundance of choice in blue, including hydrangea, agapanthus, eringium, delphinium, nigella & cornflower.  This bride went for eringium in her bouquet, teamed with pretty white roses & spray roses, intersperced with “baby blue” eucalyptus. The buttonhole of white rose, wired agapanthus & foliage complimented it really beautifully.

Calla Bouquet

We were delighted with how this bouquet of Calla Lillies turned out! It was so gorgeous with it’s collar of white bouvardia & parvi-eucalyptus trim.

April has been a wonderful wedding month for us here at Daisy Chain. Each week we have been opening boxes of exquisite flowers to work with, it really has been very exciting indeed.

Bouquet Wild

We also had a “wild” wedding, such a favourite. This bouquet was packed with freesia, chamomile, waxflower, alchemelia molis, rosemary and veronica. Meadow sweet!

Altar

Here is the altar in our local St.John’s church in Kinsale all decked out in a beautifully romantic style last Friday! The scent was just unbelieveable thanks to big, blousy peonie’s teamed with David Austin “Patience” roses & lemon scented waxflower.

How romantic is the bridal bouquet?

A Little Vintage Darling

3 Apr

There really is something very special and wonderful about vintage inspired weddings. We love everything from the little vintage style touches to the full on, themed affairs. Vintage can be classical, but it can also be masses of fun, and we adore fun weddings!

sasha

We recently recieved this adorable vintage parasol, which we found on a Style Me Pretty photo on Pinterest! This parasol can be hired for your own wedding from us.

 

 

And here’s a beautiful bouquet we recently created for a bride with beautiful vintage style roses & waxflower, in off white to champagne tones, so classic & romantic!

DSC_8128

When it comes to “vintage” style flowers we think that scent is a vital, they must have a scent that brings you back to a special time or event. Lots of our brides love the scent of roses, we couldn’t tell you how many of them say it reminds them of making perfume from rose petals in their grandmothers’ gardens! Some of our favourite scented rose varieties include “Norma Jean“, David Austin “Keira” & “White O’Hara“.

For  superbly styled vintage wedding ideas, have a look at Pearl & Godiva. They are based in Dunmanway, and have a huge collection of vintage items available to hire. They also offer styling services, their work is stunning!

We love those little macarons too, so yummy! Taylor at Diva’s in Ballinspittle does really gorgeous ones.
