You know we love a hands-on kinda girl, so Emily's DIY wedding was a joy to be a part of! Emily and her girlfriends came to A Milkhouse Party to design the arrangements for her wedding. The bride's preference for wildflower, garden-inspired arrangements were right up our alley, and selections of peonies, roses, astilbe and greenery helped bring her vision to life.
When consulting with clients for their DIY weddings, we discuss floral selections, favorite styles and colors. We equip guests with all the tools they need, and display the flowers in a "buffet-style" setup so that they can pick and choose what they'd like to include. Our recipes are on hand as a professional guide, but the bride is always free to tinker to make the bouquet of her dreams! We loved Emily's approach and her cascading style - the collection of greens she selected were a great fit for the woodsy backdrop found at The Monroe Estate.
Emily's bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of blush and ivory roses to coordinate with their soft pink gowns.
Jeremiah's bout was a simple spray rose, made sentimental with a small locket. It's these little joys that make DIY weddings so special. Having a hand in your wedding decor isn't just a bonding experience with the friends and family who come to help - it means that you had a part in every detail came together on the most special day of your life.
Yum! Emily and Jeremiah's wedding cake boasted rose heads, peonies and lisianthus for a more formal look.
Congratulations, Emily and Jeremiah!
