Blame it on Downton Abbey, or the biceps of the newest Agent 007, Daniel Craig - but the nation seems to have its eyes fixated on our closest ally across the Atlantic at the moment. The English influence has even trickled into American weddings for spring and summer, and we're loving it.
Say goodbye to the simple, minimalist centerpieces of recent years. While some of today's brides will still want a contemporary wedding, we are seeing brides move toward soft palettes and feminine textures. Muted shades of pinks, pale peach, and champagne are seen in roses, peonies, ranunculus, hydrangea, stock, and baby's breath.
We at Cactus Flower have enjoyed creating several weddings so far this season with this theme. Doesn't it make you want to hop on a plane, find a romantic English garden, and enjoy a cup of tea with your beau? (Or perhaps, Daniel Craig?)
