I learned something new this weekend as I created floral beauties for the winter white bridal party. I learned about stock flower. This beauty has a wonderful fragrance and is a good “filler” in arrangements, but I’ve never used it in bridal work. Well, as it turned out, the roses I got from the flower market were just a little too cream…, so I needed something with a LOT of white in the bride’s bouquet and all of her attendant bouquets too. Stock saved the day. This flower seems delicate, but it is quite resilient in bridal work. The bottom blooms can be plucked and the tops too – if the look seems out of place to you. The texture just works with callas and roses and the wonderful layering with alstromeria too.
Oh, and the boutenneires were amazing – it is always a risk to use hydrangea in bouts or corsages, but these were a great compliment to the small roses and the back splash of eucyalptus leaves.
I always learn something when working on wedding flowers. It was a joy and a challenge at the same time.
