Ct. Wedding Florists: Melissa's wonderful blue and white wedding bouquet.

Melissa's Wedding was so wonderful....I loved this color combination. Melissa wrote a thank you and gave me the link to her photos.....Enjoy~!!

Hi Debra,

I hope things are well.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did at Jim and my wedding on September 25th at St. Clements.
Everything was perfect.
I got so many complements on the centerpieces, and especially the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. I wanted to share my photographer's blog with you, so you could see some pictures of the flowers.
When I get the pictures back (probably in another few weeks), I'll be sure to send you some shots of the bouquets, etc.

Hope to work with you again sometime in the future.

Best Regards,

Ct.Wedding Florist: How the "Toss Away" bouquet began

It is believed that, dating as far back as the 14th century, the desire to take home a piece of the bride’s luck in finding herself a groom prompted wedding guests in Western Europe to try to tear off bits of her dress.

Groups of people would chase after the lucky woman in the hope of a scrap of cloth or ribbon. Such a keepsake would bring good luck in love.

Brides, naturally, were opposed to the idea of being chased and having their wedding garments destroyed. As such, the idea of throwing the bouquet emerged – by distracting the crowd, the bride would have time to get away unscathed.

Ever since, the idea of the bridal bouquet toss is wrapped around the concept of good fortune. Whichever unmarried woman catches the bridal bouquet, so the story goes, will be the next to marry.

Ct. Wedding Florist:"Fantastic" Melissa's Wedding flowers........

Dear Debra,
The flowers for Melissa's wedding were "Fantastic."
We had so many nice comments about the flowers
at the church, the girls flowers and the centerpieces at the table.
The seashells were a perfect touch
and we have collected a number of them from the two centerpieces we kept for ourselves.
Your flowers were a perfect compliment to a glorious day.
Thanks so much for all your good work.
Please feel free to use us as a reference if you want..
Thanks again,
Lyn and George
