September 2, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II, III & IV • Page 7 September Brides Your wedding day is the perfect time to stop and smell the roses, or the daisies, tulips, or hydrangeas. A bride’s flower options - from her bouquet to the 9-2-09 janine centerpieces - are virtually limitless. If you’re having a hard time choosing SeptBridesBanner what to carry down the aisle or use as 6 x .75 decoration at your reception, consider what kind of bride you are. There is a perfect flower for everyone - it’s just a matter of finding what’s right for you. Here are some suggestions, depending on your own personal style: The Classic Bride Silver-screen star Grace Kelly was the quintessential classic bride: sophisticated and timeless. The classic bride follows all the rules of wedding etiquette, and she takes tradition seriously. White roses or stephanotis with pearl pins in the center are ideal flowers for the classic bride’s bouquet. Her bridesmaids carry cascading roses in shades that match their dresses. Her groom and ushers sport rose and baby’s breath boutonnieres. A basket with rose petals to toss down the aisle is the perfect accessory for her flower girl. Longstemmed white roses in tall vases that allow guests to see one another make for traditional, tasteful reception centerpieces. The Modern Bride This bride is up on all the hottest wedding trends - and she’s more than happy to include them in her big day. Consider single-flower monochromatic nosegays or calla lilies in white or a bright color, matching her bridesmaids’ dresses. Calla lilies in various shades from yellow to crimson - are ideal for the modern girl’s attendants. Her groom might stick with a traditional rose boutonniere or simply a silk handkerchief tucked in his front pocket, depending on how formal the affair. The modern woman may use mixed wildflowers for centerpieces. If she is an autumn bride, she might include a decorative hollow pumpkin with its top off as a vase for typical autumn flowers like gold mums. Since she is willing to be creative, she might include real flowers as decoration on her cake, which are beautiful and keep her on budget. The Glamorous Bride Diva is the first word that comes to mind when you hear about the glamorous bride. Everything she does makes a dramatic statement. A glamorous bride who prefers to make a statement with flowers should choose something like orchids, peonies, or black magic roses. A bull’s-eye bouquet which makes cir- A Fall Wedding Showcase A perfect flower awaits every type of bride cular rows of flowers look like a bull’s eye is right on target for a woman who wants to make a statement. The Romantic Bride She wants to be a princess for a day and often wears a frilly dress with lots of regal details. The romantic bride should consider dahlias, a baby’s breath cloud or a nosegay in a silver or gold cone-shaped vase called a tussiemussie. Tea roses are a great choice for the bridesmaids. Her flower girl carries a pomander and wears a wreath of baby’s breath or daisies in her hair. The color palette for centerpieces should be soft and demure. The Beach Bride This woman knows when the surf’s up, and she wants to smell the salt of the ocean when she says “I do.” Beach brides often wear a slinky dress with little detail, which means her bouquet should be eye-catching. Spiky blue veronica with hydrangea, white amaryllis, sunflowers, or birds of paradise can make a statement in the sand. The Anti-Bride The only rule for the anti-bride is that there are no rules. If the anti-bride opts for a bouquet, she is likely to have her friends each give her a flower which she will bunch together and tie with a ribbon, or her groom will buy her a rose from a street vendor. ����������� Hair Care ������������������ ���������������� ������������������ ������������ ������������������� ���������������� �������� ��������� Wyckoff Wedding Connection Monday, September 21, 2009 Wine and Cheese will be Served 179 Godwin Ave, Wyckoff RSVP to or call 201-891-1141 Bridal Show 6:00-8:00 pm THE BRICK HOUSE ��������������������������������������� ��������������������� ����������������������������������� �������������� ��������� ��������� ��������������� ������� ������������������� ���������������������� ���������� Great Marriages Start With...
