new year's engagementNew Year’s Eve is the most popular night of the year for couples to get engaged. If you’re a newly engaged couple, first of all, the Gordon Boswell family would like to congratulate you. This is an important time in your lives as a couple. Now you can begin to have fun as you plan your wedding. It’s important to get a head start on planning what will arguably be the most important day of your lives.


Are You Inspired by a Theme?


Many couples draw inspiration for their wedding design, decor and flowers from a theme. The theme can relate to anything that’s significant to you as a couple. You can also choose a color scheme for your wedding after coming up with a theme. The color scheme will help you as you look for invitations, linens for the reception, dresses for the bridal party, flowers for everything from the bridal party bouquets, to the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres, corsages for the bride and groom’s mothers, ceremony and reception flowers, and the bridal bouquet.


Where to Look for Color Inspiration


If you’re uncertain about choosing a color scheme, look to the color experts at Pantone. Pantone’s color experts picked a gender neutral palette for the Spring 2016 color scheme. They choose colors that are bright and vivid in the hope that the colors could elicit a feeling of optimism in people. The colors are used in fashion design, in textile design, and for floral design.


If you’re looking for vivid colors for a table centerpiece, consider our Heart’s Desire arrangement. This delightful design comes in a Mercury glass vase. We combine ranunculus, carnations, and roses in contrasting shades of bright red and deep pink.


The name can be misleading. Don’t let the fact that the arrangement is called Thankful for You discourage you or prevent you from seeing the flower and color combination as a suitable choice for a wedding centerpiece, or for floral arrangements in the ceremony area. The combination of yellow, orange and pink flowers includes Gerbera daisies, pincushion protea, roses, lilies, and Bells of Ireland. You get the feeling that these flowers are smiling at you.


Our Purple Cluster arrangement packs a lot of colorful punch into a small display. Purple roses, hydrangeas, statice and green button mums make this design a warm, rich and gender neutral choice. It’s suitable for any season.


No matter what you are looking for when it comes to your wedding design, you can count our experienced wedding consultants and floral designers to help you create the wedding you’ve always dreamed of having. Our attention to detail will ensure that your day exceeds anything you ever dreamed of for your wedding.
