Hello, belles! I’m in New York City today spending a few hours with the Chapel Designers, a group of fabulous florists! Our good friend (and Blue Ribbon Vendor) Holly Chapple asked me to speak about the history of Southern Weddings and how we create our editorials, and I was tickled pink to do so. In honor of spring, we thought it would be fun to share a few gorgeous bouquets by the talented attendees and Holly herself. I hope these pretty blooms help get you ready for warmer temps and gentle breezes (as if we needed any help!)

Finding new wedding vendors to introduce you to via our Blue Ribbon Vendor Directory is one of my favorite parts of my job! Here, a few of our recent additions:

Amalie Orrange is a photographer in Orlando, Florida. I love her vibrant colors and natural-feeling images.

Amy Lynne Originals is a talented florist in North Carolina who produces fresh and unique work. And, having met her at our last yard sale, I can vouch that she is lovely and warm in person, too!

I love Christine’s Couture’s tagline: “we know our brides by name and their dresses by heart.” Starkville, Mississippi is lucky to have this wedding and special occasion shop!

Dear Wesleyann might be a new name to you, but I’ll bet you’ve been seeing her photos for years. We love Wesleyann’s work as much as ever, and count Florida Panhandle brides lucky to have her in their neighborhood!

Likewise, Texas brides are lucky to have Ivy Weddings! The way this husband-and-wife team captures emotion is wonderful.

We love all the sweet girly goodness of Love Ophelia, especially after one of their robes was featured on the Bachelorette (we’re big fans in the office — or, at least Emily is!). Perfect for bridal party gifts, too!

Luke Wilson Special Events knows how to do sweet Southern charm right. He’s based in South Carolina!

Finding the perfect wedding deejay can be one of those wedding-tasks-to-end-all-wedding-tasks, which is why we’re happy to introduce you to MyDeejay. Maryland and local brides, be sure to check out their unique matching process! (Photo by Egomedia Photography)

Paige Winn Photo has a soft, romantic style that fits in perfectly with their Charleston, SC location.

Last but certainly not least, Spindle Photography is a studio located in Birmingham. I’ve loved getting to know Kelly’s sweet personality and images over the last few months!

To check out all of our Blue Ribbon Vendors, just click over to the full directory! You can search by category or state to find your perfect match.

Vendors, if you’re interested in getting involved, just fill out this form and Kristin will be in touch! There are so many great things that go along with being a Blue Ribbon Vendor, like access to our private Facebook group and tip blog, and being among the first to know about submission deadlines and print or image calls!

Our next burlap challenge finalist is a collaboration between Rebecca Rose Events and Amy Lynne Originals, North Carolina wedding vendors who share a studio space! They put together a fabulous DIY involving burlap flowers and GLITTER! Read on for all of the details!

From the ladies:

“This submission is a collaboration between Becca and Claire from Rebecca Rose Events and Amy of Amy Lynne Originals, and photographed by Sara Wilson of sLogan. For this Southern challenge, we found a way to combine rustic, rough burlap with the unexpected. Enter burlap flowers with glitter! It wasn’t enough to just cover the table with burlap, so we took it several steps further. The bridal bouquet and centerpieces contain burlap flowers with glittered edges and glittered billy balls (okay, Amy says the technical term is “craspedia”) at the center of each flower. The boutonniere contains burlap leaves as well! To pull it all together, we covered the table in burlap and used glittered burlap wraps on each place setting to tuck and hold the menus on the napkins. The table number is glittered on burlap as well.”

Instructions for burlap flowers:

1. Start by creating the center of your flowers. We used billy balls but didn’t want them to be yellow (their natural color).
2. If you too, want to change the color, pick up a can of spray paint and go to town.
3. Let the painted balls dry, then use a spray adhesive and dip in glitter (optional).
4. Use a sealant spray and let billy balls dry. This prevents the glitter from flaking off (a big must if you’re planning to use these in any wedding venue)!
5. Cut burlap into individual petals. Size can vary, but ours were approximately 2 inches long and 1 inch wide at the thickest part of the petal.
6. Thread a needle and sew the base of each petal around the stem of the billy ball. This isn’t exact science and good sewing skills are not needed – we promise! Just keep adding petals until you’ve formed a full flower shape.
7. Use fabric glue to line the edge of each petal and sprinkle with glitter.
8. Repeat the sealant process and spray the whole flower to seal in the glitter. (We used the same steps to create the menu wraps too!)
9. Thread a thin floral wire (available at any craft store!) through the base of each flower to create a flexible “stem”.

Thank you so much, ladies! Readers, Rebecca has been so kind as to post a few step-by-step images on her blog here, which should come in handy if you’re planning to tackle this DIY yourself. If you love this idea, be sure to comment and let us know! Remember, you’re welcome to vote for more than one concept.

    Such a creative use of burlap – with the not-so-expected pink and seersucker! Genius. And the amber bottles create such an amazing glow.

    Awwww, thanks for all the sweet comments!!!!

  13. avatar LEC reply

    LOVE it but I’m also crazy about the seersucker runner. Any idea where the fabric is from?.I’ve been trying to find this exact fabric(in blue) for my wedding.

  14. avatar Mandy reply

    So pretty, I love the flowers!

  15. avatar Becca reply

    LEC,

    So glad you love the pink seer sucker runner! That fabric isn’t actually a standard rented table linen…we made our own runner. You can find seer sucker (in pink/red, yellow, green and blue) at JoAnn Fabrics. No sewing necessary – you’ll just need to measure out the yardage and you can fold the sides over and iron the crease (use iron-on fabric tape for the best quality) to keep the sides even, straight, and flat.

    Enjoy!
    Becca
