2016 bridal bouquets

I had great hopes for a comprehensive round-up of 2016 but I’ve just returned from Christmas holidays and I’m still vacuuming the sand out of my shoes.  The clock is ticking and so wedding bouquets it is…aren’t they the prettiest anyway?  Here’s my favourite 2016 bridal bouquets thanks to several amazing florists in Calgary and the Rockies.  We’re so fortunate to have such talent in the bloom department, right in our own backyard.  So without further ado, here’s a big Happy New Year to all and a little inspiration for those newly engaged couples planning for 2017!

 If these bouquets are like children it would be wrong for me to pick a favourite right?  This one from Flowers by Janie might be it for me.  Here’s more on this bohemian bridal shoot in Kananaskis.

2016 bridal bouquets…what’s your favourite?

Okay, I can’t choose a favourite so I’ll let you decide.  When Steph married Sean in Canmore, her succulent bouquet was created by Black Earth Florals.  Together with the bridesmaid bouquets, it was pure mountain magic.
