Indie Wed Display–Modern Theme


POSTED IN: General

For the “modern” theme for Pollen’s Indie Wed display, the inspiration was a beautiful pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes.  The decor picked up the fuchsia color of the shoes with deep pinks, as well as pewter and silver, and conveyed simple elegance.

I featured fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids in the centerpiece, bridal bouquet, and boutonniere.  These flowers are so gorgeous and striking, that they really can stand alone.  I added lily grass to the tall centerpiece, and allowed the orchids to have some space, so the individual stems could be appreciated.

These beautiful orchids were grown in a western suburb of Chicago, so they only had to travel 25 miles to get here, instead of 2500 miles!  So not only are they very fresh, but they have a smaller carbon footprint than imported orchids, since they don’t need nearly as much fossil fuel to get to their ultimate destination.

For the bridal bouquet, I again allowed the orchids to stand alone, with a little lily grass added for a modern flair.  I wrapped the stems in pewter ribbon, then silver wire, to carry through the silver accents in the centerpieces.

These flowers would be perfect for the couple planning a simple and elegant wedding that still makes a  statement!

  1. What a great color, so vibrant. Love that a pair of great shoes was the inspiration. The orchids are striking and classic, wonderful choice, they stand alone well.

    I love this idea for my wedding! I am currently trying to figure out how you got the orchids in this round shape since the stems are so short? Can you tell me how you did this?
