We are deep within the thick of wedding season and everything in our heads right now revolves around weddings. Though we often dream of Christmas, we can't deny the strong allure of anything and everything related to weddings. Many of our friends are either currently planning their wedding or have recently tied the knot. So it was pretty inevitable that we have caught the joyous wedding bug! We have been a part of several wedding planning and styling projects this year and it makes us so happy to sail in the sea of wedding dreams.
Bridal bouquets are our focus this month on our Pinterest account. We have been searching high and low for that one bouquet that Min will eventually fall in love with. We have less than 50 days to her wedding! After browsing through many Pinterest pictures, we finally decided that we will customise a bouquet that will match her wedding theme. These bouquets that we found on Pinterest are drop dead gorgeous and are suitable for many different themed weddings! Oh how we wish for a wider array of flower selection in Singapore!

Dusty Rustic Bouquet
I love the pairing of dusty-coloured wild flowers and muted green leaves in this hand bouquet. In all honesty, I haven't once considered adding such a huge selection of wild flowers in my bouquet because I naturally gravitate towards a clean and classic look/colour palette for every single thing. However, I was sold the moment I saw this bouquet as everything seemed to work together so effortlessly despite not having an accent bloom. Hello, wildflowers and tiny blooms, I'm your new fan!
Succulent bouquets are quickly gaining popularity among Singaporean brides and it's easy to see why. Most bridal bouquets consists of the usual flower choices, thus replacing the focal flowers with succulents seem like a smart thing to do. Succulents add a unique twist to a conventional-looking hand bouquet without ever over-dramatising the entire vibe of the bouquet. I'm a huge fan of greens and this bouquet has all my votes!
Single Flower Bouquet
My idea of a classic bouquet is one that is slick and clean looking, preferably accentuated with a big bloom and surrounded by a single type of dark green leaves. It was love at first sight that rendered me speechless when I saw this Magnolia bouquet. In my opinion, this bouquet is the epitome of class and all sorts of gorgeousness. If I could source for affordable Magnolia blooms and leaves in Singapore, I would definitely feature a single flower bouquet at my wedding in a heartbeat.

White Tulip Bouquet
Bridal bouquets tend to be really big and cascading these days. While they look magnificent and beautiful, I find them to be a little bit overwhelming at times. I love a clean and chic bouquet of white tulips. It has been one of my dream bouquets for any occasion since I was a little girl. On the wedding front, a white tulip bouquet will most definitely match with any gown and oh, they just look so gorgeous!
A stunning and dramatic take on the statement bouquet trend. In a nutshell, I tend to steer towards a classic bouquet and would recommend brides to do so likewise. It’s always nice to look back at wedding photos that do not look dated! I absolutely adore this red bouquet that features proteas, birds of paradise, tulips, and peonies. It would look wonderful with a red lip as well! Red is a timeless colour for weddings and this bouquet is a scarlet stunner.
If solid colours ain’t your thing, I would totally recommend a wildflower bouquet! Simply perfect for a bohemian-themed wedding, a wildflower bouquet is all about the effortless love and appreciation for the pretty little things all around us. A wildflower bouquet is easy to DIY too! Just select a handful of your favourite blooms and experiment with shape, texture, height, and colour. Ah, this is such a dream bouquet; it is so fun and spontaneous!
