Many brides are including peaches, corals and sherbet oranges along with softer whites and greens. A few prefer to turn up the color by popping in more saturated shades of orange, eggplant and green, depending upon their overall color choices.
To create the fresh, soft feel of a summer day, Sullivan says she and her floral designers draw heavily on antique garden and spray roses, peonies when available, and the ever-charming sweet peas. Fragrant herbs, such as lavender, sage and rosemary, also are often in the mix.“Many of our brides want more of a relaxed black-tie affair. They are more into bringing the natural outdoors inside, and using a variety of elements to personalize their weddings,” Sullivan said. “I’m seeing more brides wanting to be involved in more aspects of the wedding itself,” she said. “They want to make it more personal and heartfelt for their guests.” The Floral Studio at Roger’s Gardens offers a full range of services; whether you want to purchase fresh flowers for your home, send a bouquet to a friend or to compliment a party, gala, wedding or almost any type of event.
