I obvviously have a thing for large flowers at the moment but lately I have been loving the huge Dinner plate dahlias in the cooler!

I used them this week for a feminine arrangement….

So how about using these as a wedding flower?

Here I was thinking they would be too big and delicate but I was overwhelmed with the array of amazing bouquets out there…I think I have a new flower crush!

Here are some amazing bouquets sourced for yours (and mine) viewing pleasure!

This beautiful bouquet used dinner plate dahlia, scabiosa, tweedia, and delphinium …all wrapped in natural twine! I found this simple beauty at the floral lab

The next few images I found via Lovely little details blog….(on a side note, this is a great little site to explore)

Yumiko Fletcher of Hana floral design created this stunning bouquet.  The bride was so smitten with her bouquet!  It is a lovely little post on sparkle and hay that shows how much your bouquet can add to your whole day and experience!

The dahlia caters to a bide who prefers a clean, classic white look…but still wnats to stand out from the crowd. The flowers above found at Elizabeth Ann design blog

the bouquet in the images above are designed by the talented little floral team at poppies and posies

…and I normally dont like long trailing things coming out of a bouquet! but this bouquet by Martha Andrews just makes my heart swoon!

I lOVE the work by la partie events…and she has not let me down with the dinner plate dahlia bouquet! This girl is forever a source of inspiration to me

So there you have it…The feminine yet still so funky Dinner plate dahlia.

I could keep going on forever but I think it is a becoming a little obsessive this sifting through so many gorgeous images of dinner plate dahlias…I have to stop somewhere! I focussed only on the bouquets this time but dont you worry…I will be back looking at them in many other aspects of a wedding…sigh they are so delightful

At the moment I am loving a soft romantic bouquets and arrangements that include corals, peaches, blush pinks, silvers and greys. This colour scheme is timeless, feminine and subtle. It says wedding without the harshness of a stark white colour palette.

Sigh! They make me so happy.

Here is a selection of bouquets that a think have such a gorgeous mix of these colours and a posie so relaxed and fuss-free they look as though brides have swooped them from the garden themselves…love!!!!!

Next up are some images from the amazingly talented lady Joy thigpen….her designs, selections and pairings are an inspiration to me

I love the soft complimentary ribbon on this bouquet, I think a bronze ribbon would be equally beautiful!

I think I am zeroing in on this colour scheme for my own wedding! It lends itself to a fancy wedding and also to more of my style- a more rustic barn wedding teamed with some beautiful natural wood tables and candlelight…sigh!!!
