Ivory, White and Green Bouquet for a Destination Wedding...

A client of mine contacted me via Etsy asking about an ivory dahlia hair flower, which led to a discussion about her bridal bouquet to match. She had a bouquet she liked but had wanted the main flower to be dahlias. Her fiance won at the craps table in Vegas that weekend so they agreed she could use part of the money to buy her bouquet and hair flower. :)The original photograph she sent me was of lots of ivory roses, lisianthus, phaleanopsis orchids, stephanotis and some white pom-pom type filler. The bouquet is all ivory and white so it really needed something to bring out the monochromatic color. The greenery was key in this bouquet to bring out the shades of ivory and white. The pink and yellow in the phaleanopsis orchids also helps. I decided not to use any plastic fillers in this bouquet and instead made clay leaves. I really like how this bouquet turned out.
