We had a great time at the 2012 Portland Bridal Show this weekend! It's always fun to meet and talk with all of the brides-to-be, and it's also a great opportunity to connect with other wedding professionals. Not to mention a chance to try out some new designs in wedding flowers! Here's a few pictures from the show:

And now for a closer look at some of those bridal bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres:
If you're looking for something a little less extravagant, these cylinders are a nice option for simple wedding centerpieces. These cylinders are filled with blue glass marbles, vanda orchids, and white floating candles, but they could be done in any color with nearly any flower inside.
This hand-tied bouquet would be perfect for a beach themed wedding. Blues and lavenders are an excellent color palette for a seaside wedding. In this bouquet: blue hydrangea, lavender freesia, blue thistle, white roses, lavender lisianthus, muscari (grape hyacinth), blue delphinium, seeded eucalyptus, and sea urchins with sparkly rhinestones in the centers.
Coordinating boutonniere of thistle, lisianthus buds, and seeded eucalyptus, wrapped with periwinkle ribbon and accented with a rhinestone pin.
Keeping with the beach theme is this lantern arrangement. Inside the lantern is a battery operated pillar candle surrounded by sand, shells, and sea glass. A spray of flowers adorns the top of the lantern. Wouldn't this be lovely on a guest book table?
For a black and white wedding theme, you can do one of two things: add an accent color for the flowers to give a nice pop of contrast, or incorporate non-floral elements to create an all black and white bouquet. Either way you go, black and white is definitely a striking wedding palette. In this bouquet: white mini calla lilies, white ranunculus, white freesia, white anemones, stephanotis with black pearl centers, viburnum berries, black feathers, and some fun black and silver ting ting around the edge.
