Fort Worth Wedding & Anniversary Flowers

Fort Worth wedding

June is National wedding month, as experts tell us that more couples choose this time to get married than any other. There are many theories as to why this is so, but we just love the fact that it gives us the opportunity to talk about Fort Worth weddings  – no matter what month you have chosen for your day!  At Gordon Boswell Flowers, we are here to help you plan, from the most gorgeous bridal bouquets to the most striking venue decor.

Mark Your Calenders: Behind June, the most popular months for weddings are May, September, and October – with January and February coming in at the end of the list. Ironically, each of these months includes one of the most popular wedding days chosen each year – New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day – but those two days are not enough to allow them to move up in ranking.  Continue reading

Celebrating Fort Worth Weddings in February

Fort Worth weddings

February is National Wedding Month. That fact is surprising to some, as February is not even close to the most popular month chosen by brides and grooms – still, there are very good reasons that experts say this is a great month to celebrate weddings. When it comes to Fort Worth weddings, we have the weather to consider winter nuptials more so than our friends in the Northern states, but spring and summer events are nonetheless more commonplace.

Every year in the United States, there are approximately 2.4 million wedding ceremonies performed. Although that averages out to 6,200 weddings per day, some days are more popular than others. You can trust Gordon Boswell Flowers to provide you with gorgeous florals for your wedding no matter the day!  Continue reading

Planning a Red Themed Wedding

Wedding Flowers Fort Worth, TX If you’re planning a January wedding, there are several seasonal colors to choose from like white, off-white or blue. At Gordon Boswell Flowers, our favorite is the red themed wedding. Choose bright, fiery reds to warm up your winter wedding or go with deep, dramatic shades of wine or burgundy. If you’re looking for some fabulous red wedding ideas, let us show you some of our favorite trends!

 

Ideas for the Ceremony

 

There are many ways to add red to your ceremony, from the runner and the flowers to the wardrobe. If you really want red to take center stage, however, it’s all about the altar decorations. For example, you can create an archway at the altar to frame the bride and groom. Red balloons tied to a black wire frame makes a fun, festive atmosphere, while an archway made from woven branches with red berries helps you stick to a more formal, traditional theme.

 

If you want to create something truly memorable, consider going with a canopy rather than a simple archway. For something simple yet chic, drape the canopy in black or white fabric and use red ribbons as an accent or to tie back the drapes. Gold drapes with red accents have a rich, luxurious look, while a canopy done entirely in red adds warmth and style to your ceremony. Complete the sophisticated look of a canopy with a pair of tall, slim vases filled with red roses.

 

Ideas for the Reception

At the reception, you’re free to take the red theme in any number of directions. Red tablecloths and seat covers are a great way to add even more romance to the occasion, but that’s only one way to add red into your decorations. You could instead choose black or white tablecloths and seat covers, using red in the table runner, for the napkins and in the ribbons that tie back the seat covers.

 

For the guests’ tables, you’ll definitely want to add red to the centerpieces. Flowers – like red amaryllis, gerbera daisies and roses – are an easy way to do this, but it’s not the only option. You could instead choose to fill tall, slender glass vases with berries or decorative beads, or you could use red candles. Float red tea light candles in tall containers, or use candles shaped like flowers in small bowls to create an atmosphere of warmth and romance.

 

Red is the color of January, which makes it the perfect theme for your wedding. If you need more ideas and inspiration, check out our website. Gordon Boswell Flowers loves to bring you the latest and greatest wedding tips and trends!

 

Heartwarming Holiday Weddings

A holiday wedding is a warm, wonderful shutterstock_77685085event. The term heartwarming is perhaps the best description. But why–What makes a holiday wedding so much more special than any other wedding? Here are 10 reasons why a holiday wedding is such a memorable and wonderful occasion.

  • Easy to Schedule – Since you are likely already getting extra days off work for the holidays, you’ll have time to get everything done.
  • The Theme is Easy – Coming up with a theme for the wedding is always difficult, having a holiday wedding makes this super easy.
  • Your Family is Here – Many families are already coming home for the holidays, why not take advantage and have your wedding at this time too.
  • It Doesn’t Have to Be Christmas – A holiday wedding doesn’t necessarily mean Christmas. Why not do a New Year’s wedding?
  • Flowers are Fun – Instead of doing the same old, same old when it comes to wedding flowers, you can choose poinsettias, chrysanthemums, and other holiday favorites.
  • You Can Keep it Classic – A holiday wedding can still have classic touches like a white wedding dress, standard cake and other touches.
  • Canon in C – This is a classic Christmas carol and a wedding song. Your wedding march is already planned for you!
  • Save Money – Renting a wedding facility in June is often much pricier than doing so in winter when there is less competition for the space.
  • Food Fun – Your banquet or reception can include favorite holiday foods, instead of the same boring wedding food that everyone else offers.Flower Arrangements
  • You’ll Never Forget Your Anniversary – A Christmas Eve, New Year’s Day or other special wedding day assures you’ll never get in hot water with your spouse for forgetting an anniversary.

Picking the Perfect Flowers for a Winter Wedding

thumbnailWinter, with its frost and snow, glitters on its own. With all of the season’s romance, it is the perfect time of year to hold a truly beautiful wedding ceremony and reception – both inside and out. Along with everything else on your special day, we know you want and expect the flowers at your winter wedding to be flawless. At Gordon Boswell Flowers, our expert florists will help you select and design arrangements to bring elegance and sophistication to your magical winter wedding day, ensuring your wedding sparkles as much as, if not more than, winter itself.

Though there are several options for winter wedding floral design, we love it when couples enchant the guests as their wintertime weddings with all white floral arrangements. White roses, calla lilies, ranunculus, baby’s breath, and even carnations all bring the feeling of freshly fallen snow to a wedding with their delicate, powdery blooms. Not only do all white floral arrangements and bouquets mimic the snow, they also put the bride at the center of the ceremony, the most beautiful flower, with her gorgeous white gown. Though the blooms are pretty enough to stand alone, gems, pearls, lace, ribbon, or other white or silver embellishments can add texture and excitement to all white floral arrangements.

If you prefer more color, but still want to keep your wedding decor seasonal, we recommend sticking with a mostly white palette, but adding pops of red and green to your bouquets. These festive colors not onlthumbnaily look beautiful against a white backdrop, but also add warmth to winter wedding ceremonies and receptions, keeping the snow outside and the festivities inside. In addition to adding color, candlelight can also be incorporated into floral centerpieces for the wedding reception. The cozy flicker of candlelight at your wedding will create an inviting atmosphere that will make guests want to celebrate your union all night.

Whether you choose all white or a colorful array of flowers for your winter wedding, we can assure you that they will be perfect. At Gordon Boswell Flowers, we hope to assist you in every step of your flower planning process, from selection and arrangement to delivery on the big day; we want your winter wedding to hold all of the beauty and joy of the season.
