#WinifredWednesday - Bouquets for the Classic Bride

Who doesn’t love flowers?  They smell nice, they look nice and they have an amazing ability to brighten even the gloomiest of days.  At Winifred Bean we're crazy for all things floral, the bridal bouquet being no exception. This week, we’re obsessing over these gorgeous Classic Bride bouquets - we think they’re the perfect pairing to Petals or Tulipe.  And while we love a clean white bouquet as much as the next girl, we love a little flair.  Think green succulents, unexpected purples, or loosely bunched bouquets for a natural, flowing floral look.  Whatever your style, we hope these gorgeous images brighten your Wednesday a little (or a lot)...xo!

#WinifredWednesday - City Bride's Something Blue

We love weddings for so many reasons - the celebration of love, the gathering of friends and family, the excuse to wear the best dress of your life, and of course, the tradition.  There are few traditions more well known than the time-honored something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.  But there's no reason why you can't get a little creative while still honoring tradition.  And we know City Brides just love to get creative.  So for this week's #WinifredWednesday, we're going blue.  A pop of blue nail polish, a blue bracelet or flower, or our favorite - velvet blue shoes.  Whatever blue you choose, get creative and you're guaranteed to love it for life.
