Simplicity

There is something delicately beautiful about a simple, small white wedding cake. Add a little ribbon to match your colour scheme and a bit of foliage and you’ve got a winning combination for a classic cake.

Fancy Florals

If the trend of wild, untamed flowers isn’t for you, check out our recommendations for classic and romantic flower bouquets to match your sophisticated personality.

Nude & Powder Blue 

Keeping all things delicate in pastels, a common classic look for a floral bouquet is to add ‘something blue’ from the old bridal tradition, this can be in the flower petals or within ribbon that ties the bouquet together.

White Bouquet 

For the ultimate classy look, opt for a bright white bouquet to contrast against the greenery. The white bouquet symbolizes all things that are innocent and pure, used traditionally before a bride is ‘given away’ by her father to her new life with her husband. This look is timeless and looks great against a block colour on bridesmaids.

Pink Peonies

Traditional with a modern twist, Peonies have made a huge comeback for for wedding bouquets. One of our favourite flowers here at wedding journal, pink peonies make for a delicate and soft look, perfect for a spring or summer wedding. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are thought of as a symbol of good fortune and a happy marriage by those in China.

Romantic Roses

If you prefer a flower that is more bold and a little different from the  common pastel colours, a red rose bouquet would look great for a winter wedding. A symbolic flower of romance and love, the rose is a timeless classic.
