When vintage designs started becoming really popular years ago, we saw an influx of antique flourish patterns as well as rich and luxurious floral artwork. Putting the two together was a natural step in the progression of vintage-inspired fashion and design. Now there are countless ways to enjoy this beautiful combination, and it’s the perfect fit for something as romantic as a wedding.

Garden Glam

We LOVE the look of fresh flowers and highly encourage plenty of them or showcasing a limited amount of fresh flowers in big ways. We really wanted to glam up this fresh floral look to incorporate the Flowers and Flourishes theme. Inspired by the antique gold flourishes in the featured invitation’s artwork, we went after some subtle gold accents that gave this style story a touch of sparkle. The heart and leaves cake topper and the antique gold bridal accessories are just a few examples of small ways you can reinterpret flourishes.

An Artistic Approach

Fresh flowers are always beautiful! However, you don’t have to rely on fresh flowers to get the look you want. Finding ways to incorporate floral artwork is a unique, and can be a very affordable, way to continue your floral theme. The Floral Flourish Foil Wedding Invitations we chose are a great example of showcasing stunning artwork in a prominent way, which introduces your wedding theme and sets the stage for whatever you’re planning. You can take a look at our entire collection of floral wedding invitations to find the perfect fit for your wedding style.

Chase the Rainbow

The invitation we chose drove our color choices but flowers come in a rainbow of colors, which means you can repurpose this wedding theme to fit any color combination you want! Shades of pink and red offer a rich and romantic look, and we aimed for quite a bit of contrast between our lightest and darkest colors. Contrast in color brings a sense of depth to the décor, giving it a slightly more moody vibe, but you can do whatever you want with your wedding. That’s the beauty of flowers and the beauty of planning your own wedding!
