Swarovski Crystal Bridal Bouquets
All the elements of your wedding, from the flowers to the finishing touches, should suit you in every way. The bouquet you carry down the aisle should reflect your individual taste and style and personify who you are. A bride's bouquet is the ultimate romantic statement.
If flowers are the language of love, as the Victorians believed, then today’s bride can take that one step further and expresses her sentiments -- and herself -- far beyond the iconic all-white arrangement. Create an impact with a handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet from Rayvenwoodmanor that is not just a lovely accessory but a work of art that's as unique as your personality and your sense of style.
The ideal time to begin thinking about your handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet is after you have chosen your gown and ceremony setting and/or wedding colors; this will let you select a bouquet that harmonizes with the wedding's mood and motifs.
Colors are the elements brides tend to think of first, you'll want to weigh all other aspects of the bridal bouquet, from its shape and size to such finishing accents as ribbons. That is why Rayvenwoodmanor offers a variety of colors and customized schemes for your bouquet selection. The decisions you make regarding your bridal bouquet will often set the tone for other bridesmaids bouquets, flower girl baskets and the accessories for the wedding party.
Ask yourself...what appeals to you? Do you prefer a classic motif, such as pearls and clear swarovski crystals, or a bold contrast that might come from a mix of crystal clear, blood red and tuxedo black swarovski crystals? Do you like tailored or free-form arrangements? A small bouquet or a large, striking, make a statement when you walk into the room bouquet?
Samples of colors of crystal beads, pearls, and ribbon are available on request. We can customize your bouquet with great style to capture the world the way you want it to be and transcend that feeling into your heirloom quality bouquet.
Details from the wedding itself are a rich source of ideas for your handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet . Color often plays the deciding role. If you've always adored orange and brown and plan to intertwine the hues into your reception decorations, you might want your bouquet to reflect the same earthy shades.
Some Brides derive their inspiration for their bouquet from the wedding location. Stems trimmed with miniature shells would be fitting for a seaside wedding celebration. For a garden wedding, you might want to add roses (fresh or silk) or pearl and crystal flowers to your handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet reminiscent of nature.
Perhaps a decorative detail from your gown will give rise to your handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet. Tiny clusters of beads in a petite bouquet could echo a beaded bodice on your wedding gown and conjoin style of both bouquet and dress, while the full and cascading look of a larger handmade Heirloom Crystal Bouquet might work well with the flowing of a long full skirt.
Sometimes the best bouquets have deep sentimental meaning. For the Victorians, various flowers and foliage symbolized different virtues or emotions. Daisies were associated with innocence and rosemary with remembrance. For the Modern Bride, colors of gemstones and crystals can take the place of flowers...
