This past weekend, the staff at Experience and Creative Design worked hard to create a beautiful backdrop to the wedding held at the Calvery Tabernacle Church in Schenectady. The bridesmaid’s and bride’s bouquets were also designed and made by David Siders, co-owner of Experience and Creative Design. Another job well done!

Everyone loves fall with the deep russet colors of brown, burgundy, spice and gold. Add in the beautiful vibrant oranges and reds of the changing leaves and you have yourself a great color pallet for a wedding. Of course an outdoor fall wedding is a dream of a lot of brides but with the weather, never knowing if it is going to be an Indian Summer or snowing…do you take the chance? Try bringing the outdoors in and take away the stress of weather on your special day.
As Experience and Creative Design has done, take small trees with the leaves still on them and surround a post in the venue. Create ambiance by hanging votives from the branches. The staff here has created small, bright centerpieces and added in red apples and green grapes for some interest. Stop by Experience and Creative Design to speak to Rudy Grant and David Siders, our wedding designers, to start planning your fall wedding today!
Hand tied bouquets are made literally in your hand. Instead of taking a styrofoam base and sticking the flowers into it, you hold the bouquet in your hand as you put it together and then bind it with either wire or tape. Ribbon is then wrapped around to hide the binding and to create a finished look.
There are two types of hand tied bouquets; compact and loose. A loose bouquet is made with the bind lower down on the stems. A compact bouquet has a slightly higher binding point which creates a tighter, more compact bouquet.
The charm in a hand tied bouquet is that it is created with its natural stem showing and ribbon wound around it to cover the binding. The ribbon area, allows for the bride to add her own personal touch, such as an heirloom brooch.
Start out with a focal flower, the flower that will be the main focal point. It may be brighter than the rest, larger or just a different type. Then keep adding the flowers a few at a time while turning the bouquet slightly to ensure an all around finished look. Bind it with the wire or tape, add the ribbon and any other accessories and you have a beautiful, hand tied bouquet!
