Silk Wedding Bouquet Recreation- Navy and Ivory

Take a look at this pretty bouquet that was a silk wedding recreation for a bride from Staten Island, New York.

If you like the look of ivory and navy, check out these other bouquets:
-Navy, Blush and Gold
-Nautical Inspired Wedding
-Blue and Ivory Spring Wedding Flowers
-Bouquet Recreation
-Slate Blue Wedding Flowers

This recreation consisted of ivory Roses, white Stock, and blue Gypsophilia (Baby's Breath) finished off with a beautiful Antique White ribbon that fits right between the ivory and white flowers.

Maria, chose to not have the gems added into her bouquet, but as you can see from this beautiful photo provided by Express It Video & Photography that her recreation is still amazing and really captures the design and beauty of her original bridal bouquet.

I loved my wedding bouquet and was so sad when it dried up. I contacted a few places but Love Is Blooming is the only one who answered me right away. I was notified and sent pictures of each step and was asked questions to make sure everything was the way I wanted. Any questions I had were answered within a day. I am in love with my new bouquet. The first time I saw my bouquet, it brought back memories to when I saw my bouquet the day of my wedding. Now I get to look at my bouquet every day and remember that day forever!!
— Maria | New York

Maria also sent me a photo after she received her bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers. She had saved the rhinestones from her wedding day and was able to add them back in herself. Take a look!

Destination Wedding Bridal Bouquet Recreation

I've gotten a number of requests for destination wedding bridal bouquet recreations in silk flowers. Perhaps it's because those flowers tend to be even more short-lived as many couples are hopping on a plane just a few days after their ceremony. With no way to save and fly home with a delicate bouquet, it feels like a lost opportunity to have that piece of those amazing experiences preserved. That's where a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers can save the day!

Kevin contacted me and I could see from the pictures he sent that the beautiful sand and surf combined with amazing Lilies and Orchids beautifully detailed a destination wedding. Here's the recreation:  

And you can see the original in these stunning photos courtesy of Candace Jeanne Photography.

Relive Your Wedding Everyday With A Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

Everyday I'm hustling...so the song goes. But some days you just want to relive those really awesome days. Here's one way: have your bridal bouquet recreated in silk flowers!  That's what Whitney did!

When Whitney contacted me, she was so newly married that she still had her bouquet drying out in a vase! As the flowers had gotten a little wilty, it was difficult to really see the beautiful shape of what she walked down the aisle with. We decided to wait a little longer until her professional photos came back and I had a much clearer picture (pun intended) of what her bouquet really looked like.

Here's our happy couple, compliments of Jillian Joseph Photography.

Whitney also wanted her groom's boutonniere recreated which was an easy addition to the order.

Thanks again to Whitney for allowing me to help her relive out such an awesome day. If you want to perpetually gasp in awe at how awes-some your wedding was, maybe a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is just the thing you need! Get in touch with me today to find out how!

Review of Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

All of my bridal bouquet recreations in silk flowers are special, but there is just something about Adam's 1st Anniversary Bouquet order that was a little extra special.  Maybe it's the cream Roses, peach Stock, Cafe Au' Lait Dahlias, cream Peonies, or the pink Lisianthus? Maybe it's all of it together for his sweet bride!

Here's a few photo of the original bouquet provided by Rita Temple Photography out of California. 

bridal-bouquet-recreation-silk-flowers.jpg
bridal-bouquet-recreation-silk-flowers.jpg

Adam knew that the special wrap and broach was saved after his wife's bouquet had lost its luster. So we wrapped the recreation in a simple satin ribbon so when he received it, he could add the lace and fabric wrap and broach as another part of the surprise.

Here's what Adam's beautiful wife had to say about her silk bridal bouquet recreation:

I can’t imagine opening anything more beautiful or sentimental on our 1st wedding anniversary. I spent the year after our wedding saying how much I loved my wedding bouquet and how much I missed it. Now I get to enjoy it everyday. The attention to detail, skill, and creativity that went into my replica bouquet is simply amazing. When my husband gave it to me, I initially thought he had gotten another bouquet made from our florist. The flowers you used are so realistic. Thank you for giving me a tangible piece of my wedding day that I can cherish always.

Whether it's your first anniversary, like Adam and Blair, or your 50th, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is a timeless treasure to give to that special lady in your life! Contact me today to find out how to get started!

Bridal Bouquet Recreation in Silk Flowers

I know it's June already, but I wanted to share some of the bridal bouquet recreations in silk flowers from April. 

This beautiful and bright bridal bouquet was a combination of roses, peonies, lavender, delphinium, lamb's ear, and freesia.

This anniversary bouquet was composed of silk roses, peonies and greens.

This bridal bouquet recreation from a destination wedding was a tropical mix of peonies, roses, stock, dahlia, and dusty miller.

Why Fresh Wedding Flowers Come With Risks

As I've gained more clients ordering a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers, I've become more and more convinced that fresh wedding flowers can come with some risks and how awesome the option of silk wedding flowers actually is! I've had customers who loved their bouquet and just wanted a replica, and I've also had customers who wished they had silk flowers to begin with. Let me preface Ana's story by telling you briefly about my first winter in Minnesota.

That first winter, I made the mistake of leaving for an early college class with wet hair.  As I walked out to get in the car (which I failed to let run for a while) I began hearing a crackling noise. That's right, my hair was freezing. Now imagine what can happen with delicate flowers meant to thrive in warm environments!

My story is funny, but Ana's is not quite laughable.  Married on New Year's in Minnesota, you know it's going to be cold, but what Ana didn't know is that her flowers were at risk of freezing. And that's exactly what happened!  They were able to squeeze in some shots before her Anemone's turned completely brown, but she ended up having to pull them out of her bouquet before she even walked down the aisle!  Her bouquet was amazingly beautiful, but it must have been hard to swallow the loss of flowers she paid good money for!

When she contacted me to recreate her bridal bouquet in silk flowers, I was so excited to proceed because her bouquet was just stunning. Here's a side-by-side of the recreation and the original. Photos provided by Mark Fierst Photography.

Sadie’s Floral in Minneapolis made a gorgeous bouquet that I loved, but our record-breaking New Years Eve cold snap froze the flowers. We were able to get some pictures before the anemones froze and turned brown (and had to be pinched off). Recreating in silk means I wake up every morning and see that gorgeous bouquet.

Anniversary Gift Idea: Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

If you've come across my blog any time in the last year, then you know that it's become a hot-spot for a growing anniversary gift idea trend: a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers. David's anniversary was coming up and he wanted a great gift that was going to surprise and delight his wife. He sent me an email me with some pictures of the bouquet, I found all the components, got him a quick quote and we got working!

Here's a comparison of the recreation to the original. Photo provided by their friends/family:

I had a great experience ordering a replica bouquet. You are quick to get back and a real pro at what you do. My wife loved her anniversary surprise.

David sent me this awesome shot of the bouquet displayed on their mantel. Awesome, right?

If you are looking for a great anniversary gift that none of your friends have thought of yet, a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers is a step in the right direction. Contact me today to find out if her bouquet can be your next anniversary gift.

Incorporating Dried Flowers in your Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation

There have been a few instances where I wasn't able to track down a silk version of a specific flower that I need to fully recreate a bridal bouquet in silk flowers. In those instances, I found an awesome and true-to-the-design replacement with dried elements.  That was the case with Kyle's bridal bouquet recreation for his wife.  She had this adorable bouquet that had the ever so unique Gomphrena throughout. I searched through my various suppliers and wasn't able to find what I needed so I turned to a dried flower vendor on Etsy. It was a great way to support another small business and bring this bouquet to life.

The original bouquet was picked on a farm of whatever happened to be growing at the time. It included white Dahlias, Lavender Roses, Scabiosa, Gomphrena and greenery.  Lovely!

Brandon also wanted his boutonniere recreated. A lavender Rose, Scabiosa and a couple of those cute little Gomphrena and tied off with the same charcoal satin ribbon as was on the bridal bouquet recreation.

Here's a photo of the original bouquet; awesome, right? Photo provided by: Laura's Focus Photography.

Tropical Wedding Reception Back Home

Hearing back from my clients is always such a treat. Take a look at these beautiful photos and read about Caitlyn's story here.

Hey Erin,

It’s been a little while, but I just wanted to let you know that your bouquet was a total hit at my Hawaiian-themed reception back in November. None of the guests had any clue that it wasn’t real, and everyone was amazed with your quality of work (including myself)!

The bouquet is proudly displayed on my mantle now, and it brings me so much happiness every time I look at it. Thank you for bringing that tropical piece of my wedding back to life for me. You’re awesome!

Anniversary around the holidays: The Gift of Bouquet Recreation

I've got a December birthday, thankfully for me it's early enough in the month that I get birthday presents separate from my Christmas presents. My daughter isn't quite as lucky. Her December 19th birthday means extended family celebrations are a mish-mash of holiday and birthday gift giving. At 6, she doesn't mind so much yet. But as her mom, I still have to plan ahead to make some distinction between her birthday and Christmas. If you have an anniversary around a major holiday, you too might be feeling the squeeze of gift giving. How do you make your anniversary gift separate but meaningful?

Jared must have been thinking the same thing because when he contacted me before Christmas, for his January anniversary, he was really planning ahead! He sent me some wedding pictures, we talked through the flowers and I got to work.

As I looked through the photos and talked with Jared about the bouquet itself, more questions came up. Jared was awesome about giving quick feedback and even asked his wife's Grandma what she remembered. He found me a more close up photo which helped even more and I was able to determine that in between the cream roses were purple Delphinium and individual blue silk flowers.

The bouquet itself also had some nice details we wanted to be sure to include. The sprays of pearls were just like the original bouquet. There was also a criss-cross sheer ribbon detail on the handle of the bouquet, over the top of the white satin ribbon. Because of the stems I was working with, I wasn't able to leave as much ribbon showing on the bottom of the handle. Sometimes I have to work with the constraints of the products. But I always work to maintain the overall look of the original floral design. Jared noticed the ribbon detail wasn't quite exact but understood and ultimately approved of the final product.

Here's the original for comparison:

Jared's awesome photographer Lauren provided these images. Check out her website www.laurensphotographs.com or give her a call: 740-859-3028. Thanks Lauren for the images!


The bouquet turned out beautiful, my wife thought they were so accurate that she asked if I had the original florist make them. Very impressive work for just a few details and pictures. Also the whole process was really quick and I felt involved throughout the whole process from design to finish. Would recommend highly.

Dried Bouquet Fail: Silk Wedding Bouquets that Last

Melanie contacted me with something I'm learning is a pretty common problem. Her bridal bouquet didn't dry very well and ended up living in a box since they got married 10 years ago.  Don't let a dried wedding bouquet fail keep you from remembering how beautiful your bridal bouquet really was! With a couple emailed pictures, some details from memory and a few weeks time, you too can have a lasting bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers from your special day. Take a look at how Melanie's bouquet recreation turned out!

Melanie's bouquet consisted of cream Roses, white Stephanotis and some Rose greens. I finished it off with a simple white satin ribbon with a hint of the stems showing for an almost exact match to her elegant hand tied bouquet.

When planning our wedding ten years ago, I had loved the idea of silk flowers for my bouquet so that I could keep and display them forever. However, the local business I contacted was unable to squeeze our small event in, so I went with real flowers instead. After the wedding, I let the bouquet dry but it didn’t end up looking as nice as I’d hoped. I never displayed it, instead relegating it to a closet.

In January of this year, with our ten year anniversary approaching, I again thought about silk flowers, this time as a way to recreate my bridal bouquet. When I searched online, Love Is Blooming was one of the top results. I looked through Erin’s work and was sold immediately. If she could create such stunning, vivid, and detailed bouquets for other clients, I knew my simple bouquet would turn out perfectly. And it did! Finally, after a decade, I have a bouquet I can display and be proud of.

Erin’s work is beautiful, her prices are reasonable, and she completed my bouquet more quickly than I anticipated. I absolutely would recommend her to others.

Bridal Bouquet Recreation- Treat Yo Self!

Katie emailed me a few weeks ago looking to have her bridal bouquet recreated in silk flowers. What I thought was awesome is that she was hoping to have her silk bouquet in time to celebrate Valentine's Day with her husband. Such a great idea and I love that she bought her bouquet as a Valentine's gift to herself and her husband. Treat yo self, right?

Her unique bouquet was filled with beautiful champagne Roses, blue and white Hydrangea, lime green Button Mums, green Hypericum berries, yellow Heather, Leather Fern, and these awesome twisty glitter twigs. So despite the weather being still cold and white up here in the north, I was able to track down these gorgeous spring/summer flowers and colors and put it all together to help Katie and her husband celebrate Valentine's Day together. 

Take a look at her Valentine's bouquet recreation!

I was so in love with everything about my wedding day, my dress, my new husband of course and my flowers. Now after having my beautiful bouquet recreated I can look at those flowers sitting on my table and smile, remembering all the happy memories I have of my special day. They are a perfect match and I couldn’t have asked for a better recreation. Thank you so much!

Here's the original bouquet and our lovely bride Katie! If you are in Pennsylvania and are looking for a great photographer, check out Catchlight Photography!

Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation In A Short Timeframe

I like a good challenge and I'm competitive. So when Andrew contacted me about recreating his wife's bridal bouquet in silk flowers and said he understood if I couldn't get it done before his November 20th anniversary, I mentally told him, "Challenge accepted." Then I wrote him a polite email about how I was going to make it happen. Here's a side-by-side comparison.

Ever since we have been married my wife has been raving about how much she loved her bouquet. Our first anniversary was coming up when I found Love is Blooming on the internet. From the first email with Erin I knew that getting my wife’s bouquet recreated was a good idea! The whole process was so easy, and quick! Erin made the most beautiful recreation of my wife’s bouquet, and my wife was overwhelmed when she saw them. I would highly recommend working with Love is Blooming for whatever you are looking for, you will not regret it!!

Better Gift Giving: Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreations- Part 3

Here's the last of the Christmas gift rush stories: a beautiful wild-flower silk bridal bouquet near and dear to Lee's heart. Lee was hesitant to have this gorgeous bridal bouquet recreated for his wife because he worried it was going to look cheap and tacky.  I assured him that I shop at neither Cheapskatecraft.com or Tackytown Supply Stores. Those are not real places, and if they were I would boycott them. Part of the reason Lee was on the fence is that he designed his wife's bouquet as a surprise on their wedding day. She had decided she didn't need flowers and Lee decided that was nonsense. Smart man, right? So he met with a florist and chose the flowers and style for his wife to carry. Now you can understand why he wanted to get this right! Take a look at the outcome!

I just wanted to let you know that my wife Jessica absolutely loved the flowers you created! They look beautiful on our table for display.

I'm no Santa Clause, but I got to play one this year!  I had two requests right at the end of the year to do a silk bridal bouquet recreation in time for Christmas. What a great gift right? Skip the perfume and the fuzzy socks and take a minute to honor your wedding day and your special bride. Love it!

Bob sent me a couple photos and I got to work tracking down all the components. Take a look at what I came up with!

My wife absolutely loved the recreation of her wedding bouquet!! Erin did an amazing job with just a couple pictures. We couldn’t be happier with the results!!
