Bridal Beauty: Carnations

Carnations get a lot of bad rap from a lot of people - too often they're sadly disregarded as a "cheap" flower and are tossed aside as an option. Which is a shame because they come in some gorgeous colors.

But we're thinking this might just change their mind. ;)

This particular shade is of the "moon series" carnations - lavenders, medium purples and then this deep dark rich purple. I can't resist carnations all balled up like this - they give off the impression of one gigantic flower rather than several small ones. Beautiful.

This is one we completed in the shop last week, but you can see this style a lot in the current wedding trends. If you're looking to keep cost down - and at the same time keep your style high - don't underestimate these little beauties. They're bringing back some serious class to the wedding industry.
