    five that you will be seeing throughout this season.

            Rose Gold

Move over blushing bride. Rose gold is here to bring the light pink hue to this years wedding. Not only is it a softer take on the bold gold, it pairs with almost all of this seasons color combinations. Think of it as the floral or pastel of metals. It is spring. “Florals for spring? Ground breaking”.  –Devil Wears Prada

Edible Favors

After a long night of dancing the night away, party guests might be ready for a late night snack or maybe something to nibble on while they travel back home the next day. Why not send them home with an edible favor? Maybe you and your significant other love Krispy Kreme donuts? Maybe Moon Pies are your thing? Maybe you really love moon shine and want your guests to have a good time after your wedding. What ever your palate may desire will be perfect take home gift for your guests.


Every bride should feel like a princess on her wedding day, but why feel like a princess when you can feel like a goddess? This isn’t a spin on your sororitys toga party. This is Aphrodite walking down the aisle to her wedding. There’s nothing simple about this trend as you become one with the earth and have flowers in your hair. It is an effortless looking trend. This trend also transcends outfits and has morphed into an atmosphere. You will see it take many forms from flower-crafted crowns to jewels adorning her fantastically unconventional outfit.

Crafted Drink Stations

These are becoming increasingly popular recently. Guests are now able to enjoy a variety of drink options and the set up of the drinks is usually its own decoration.  You can usually have a variation of teas or lemonade and even a variation of craft beers or the couple's favorite liquor for your guests to enjoy. Bourbon bars have become a trend in itself. Guests enjoy a signature drink or their own creations. 


Calligraphy displays a sense of patience and style and is also beautiful. Whether its gold lettering on a colored card, black ink against a white paper, or even chalk on a chalkboard, we can’t get enough of calligraphy.

Spring Blossoms and Wedding Tips: May Flowers Tells All

We are in for a treat today. Mayflowers is telling all in the world of spring flowers! Keep reading for tips, tricks and inspiration for your spring wedding:

At May Flowers we love working with brides and weddings in any season, but we especially love spring weddings because of the variety of flowers available and the fabulous spring color palettes. There are lots of ways to approach choosing wedding flowers, but one of the easiest ways is to start with color. Once you’ve got a color palette determined, your florist can make suggestions about which flowers will fit well with the décor of the venue, the wedding party’s outfits and the overall feel of your wedding.

For a romantic blush and ivory wedding, fluffy flowers like garden roses, hydrangeas, peonies and
ranunculus work fabulously. Adding velvet dusty miller, pink astilbe or silver brunia berries really completes the romantic feel of the bouquet with a little bit of texture. These bouquets work well as tight mounds, but you could also create a looser bouquet and add green or pink hanging amaranthus to give it graceful asymmetry.

One of the best things about spring is a blooming garden. This atmosphere can be recreated with pastel wedding flowers of many different textures. Hydrangeas are always a good option along with roses, anemones, lisianthus, delphinium, and daisies. There are also several options for greenery, like maidenhair or sword fern fronds, eucalyptus, or a salal and ruscus combination. These bouquets often combine lots of different varieties of flowers so they can be on the large side. They are typically looser to create a more fresh-picked feel that can be accentuated by hanging amaranthus, ivy or ferns.

For a brighter and more whimsical bouquet, go for flowers like dahlias, anemones, proteas, roses and ranunculus. These flowers will fit almost any color palette because they come in so many different colors. Good choices for textural flowers or pops of color are yellow billy balls, Dr. Seuss-esque green trick, sweet William and fragrant wax flower. Greenery options include seeded eucalyptus, ferns and salal.

Whether they come in with no specific ideas beyond colors or a whole Pinterest page dedicated to flowers, May Flowers will work together with brides and grooms to create their perfect wedding day.
