Great Ideas! I had that picture saved with the drowned orchids... Question: How do you keep the flower in place? Do you think other flowers would look good in this arrangement?

I'm sorry!! I thought I replied to this and then realized I didn't - I'm a space cadet!

You made me laugh too by calling this arrangement "drowned orchids" - super funny!

If I'm not mistaken, I believe they probably tied fishing wire around the orchid and then attached it to one of the rocks at the bottom - orchids actually don't float very well at all, so I don't think it was too hard to keep the orchid down. In fact, I can't tell, but if they had a longer stem on the orchid, they might have been able to simply anchor it with the stem caught amongst the rocks - but I do think fishing wire is a safer bet.

I do think other flowers could look great in this arrangement - you just need to anchor them with the fishing wire and rock to keep them submerged!

NP! Thanks.... I was looking on your website and my fav wedding you did was where you had all of the blue, brown, white cylinder candles at different heights... so beautiful. Not enough room in my suit case though!

My newest idea: I want to do aqua/teal and red! I have been looking for fabric for table runners/squares... so pretty. But I also like when there is touches of white, brown and even magenta!
I have been googling aqua and red and like everything I see...however, I would like a more romantic or whimsy feel than the modern I am seeing.
I also have been looking at white papel picado flags and want to incorporate them and lanterns.
Do you think I can create a romantic Mexico feel with these colors? Any ideas?

I think ANYTHING is possible!! My suggestion, to make it a little more dreamy and more "mexican" would be to focus on aqua/teal as your primary color, utilize white as your secondary color and only use red as an accent color - that will "pop" out the red and keep it from having a red/white/blue sortof feel to it. Utilize chiffon (if you can) because it's sheer yet not stiff (like say tulle) and will look pretty blowing in the wind. If you could utilize aqua/teal chiffon overlays over white tablecloths, that's my biggest suggestion - because, otherwise, white is your primary color and that's what is making some of the photos you are seeing so "modern" in their takes. Depending on your budget, you might also consider a shade of aqua/teal (not the same shade as the overlays - perhaps darker) for napkins and then wrap them with white ribbon and have either a little red bud in the middle OR maybe have placecards with red type. Red flowers interspersed with lanterns for the centerpieces I think would look really great.

Another option, instead of utilizing colored napkins, would be to have aqua/teal maracas with a red design on them as placemarkers - that would look stunning and double as a favor. (we do those btw - check the sept 1st blog when it comes out wink.gifwink.gif).

If you can find an aqua/teal ribbon with a an antique red scroll on it, that would be fab to utilize as accent marks in various places (i.e. perhaps you wrap the middle of a wine glass with the ribbon or the napkins, etc.).

Depending on where you are having your wedding, to have some flowing chiffon fabric (in this case I think white would look better), tied back with aqua/teal ribbon could also help to make things look more romantic and dreamy, as opposed to being so modern.

Just a few ideas.... :):):)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
