Popular Wedding Flowers

By: Colleen Lennehan


With thousands of flowers growing all over the world it may seem hard to pick a handful of favorites, but when it comes to weddings, some blooms are chosen over and over again.

Many brides already have their “must have” flower list in mind before they slide their engagement ring on, while others need time to decide what blooms will go into their bridal bouquet.

We’ve created a list of 15 flowers that have been steadily popular over the past year. Terri designed each of these floral creations within the past few years and we gathered them all because they highlight one of the most used flowers by brides and grooms!

Reverie Gallery New England Soiree

By: Colleen Lennehan

Photographers, florists, and event planners–among many other fabulous industry leaders– sipped on signature cocktails, savored to-die-for cuisine, and socialized throughout the night at Reverie Gallery’s New England Soiree.

The Wadsworth Mansion held the event this past Tuesday, allowing wedding vendors from Maine to New Jersey and everywhere in between to be a part of this night of net-working.

We were lucky enough to be asked to design the arrangements for the west ballroom, which included eight cube arrangements, mantle décor, and a two foot tall floral piece for a circular couch.

We absolutely love decorating the mansion mantles, especially when we get to use hanging amaranthus; it adds texture, color and drama when draped over the ledge. We filled six cylinder vases with spray roses, tulips, and cala lilies, all white to coordinate with the events color scheme, while five strands of orchids dangled to the floor. Mercury votives and glass pedestals with floaters were lined on the mantle as well, completing the look with a romantic glow.

An arrangement was also needed for the center of a banquette. Terri used many of the same flowers as those on the mantle, but added hydrangea, stock,orchids, Amaranthus and branches which all blended together beautifully to create an eye-catching piece.

Many beloved vendors were in appearance for the soiree including photographer Jerome Braga, musician Renee Prescott from the Shaded Soul Band, and beautiful performers from Elan Artists, TEN31 Productions, and belly dancer Lidia Pleiada!

JAG Studios photographed the night while Will Talamelli produced a lovely video, capturing each special part of the night!

We loved seeing familiar faces, and meeting new members of the wonderful wedding world. A big thank you to Reverie Gallery for hosting this gorgeous event!

Wadsworth Mansion Wedding Show

This past Sunday dozens of wedding vendors gathered at the stunning Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown for their annual wedding show.

The venue, packed with brides and grooms, is a favorite of ours to work with.

Terri Krisavage Weddings and Events incorporated an all natural look for our display, a trend that is becoming more and more popular.

This earthy style allows the flowers and greens to create a beautiful “imperfect” look, in comparison to other traditional arrangement and bouquet styles.

We at Terri Krisavage Weddings and Events decided to really highlight all this trend has to offer through our bouquets, tablescape, mantle decor, and unique floral crowns.

Roses, hyacinth, ranunculus, amaryllis, fringe tulips, and succulents (among other stunning florals) were all used to create an organic garden feel, while hanging amaranthus draped from the table contrasted with a lush, vibrant look.

Another growing trend beloved by brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls are flower crowns: an earthy and creative addition to any wedding.

For the wedding show our team made three stunning floral crowns to wear throughout the day. We mainly used eucalyptus, bay leaves, succulents, and roses to complete the fairytale feel.

We absolutely loved the outcome of this all natural look for the wedding show and hope this sparked some inspiring ideas for you!
