Choosing a bridal bouquet can feel like a big step, but there are so many options out there to help you find the perfect one for you. Whether you opt for a round, cascading or free-form design, consider your Romantic Marsala bouquet as a kind of special accessory to your wedding dress.

Vibrant Bridesmaid Bouquet

Michelle’s sister was her matron of honor, and she looked radiant in her red dress. Both she and the flower girls held their bridesmaid bouquets in our Romantic Marsala color theme which did a great job of creating a focal point for the bridal party outfits. Red is a bold color for a wedding, but Michelle’s wedding party shows how gorgeous and rich it can look. The red of the dresses and floral arrangements shone amongst the outdoor setting, creating a vibrant and memorable look.

Romantic Marsala Boutonnieres

Craig wore a dapper navy three-piece suit for his wedding day, and it was adorned with the stylish detail of a floral boutonniere in Romantic Marsala. While large floral arrangements can make a huge impact on your wedding day, Craig’s outfit shows how even the smallest details are important, too. Plus, a faux flower boutonniere can be kept as a perfect keepsake from your wedding day that will last forever!

Romantic Marsala Wedding Reception

After the ceremony, it was time to head inside for a celebration! The couple enjoyed a cocktail hour before their dinner reception and basked in the love of their closest friends and family. Here’s how they included our Romantic Marsala blooms throughout their wedding reception to elevate the space and create a passionate vibe.

Head Table Decor in Romantic Marsala

The first meal together as a married couple is a memory to keep forever, so Michelle and Craig decided to make it a special moment by dining at a sweetheart table at their wedding reception. Sitting at the front of the room with a view of sunset over the river behind them, the newlyweds could take a moment to truly feel present on this special day.

To add to the theme and create an enchanting feeling, their sweetheart table was decorated with a flower garland in Romantic Marsala. A flower garland is a chic and versatile way to elevate any detail at your wedding, and in this case was effortlessly draped across their crisp, white table linens. The combination of deep reds, earthy greens and bright neutrals felt both cozy and luxurious.
