As seen on Style Me Pretty, this lovely inspiration shoot has me oohing and aahing. The softness of the images and lovely details of the shoot takes your breath away, countless times. I especially love the mix of cultures, I’m also in dire need of that beautiful wedding dress (when I get married). With an increase in interfaith and interracial marriages, it’s always lovely to see inspirations for soon to be brides of 2013. This is a great way to mix the culture and it’s quite simple. Bonus, you get to wear two beautiful dresses. Have a look at the full feature here:

LILY OF THE VALLEY: With their dainty, bell-shaped florets and their heavenly fragrances, lily of the valley look pretty alone (as a ribbon-wrapped posy) or mixed with other relaxed looking blooms, such as sweet pea or garden roses. Though typically pure white, there exists or rarer pink version. The high price and short growing season of lily of the valley means it isn’t the best options for every bride.
HYDRANGEA: Round, bushy heads of scentfree blossoms most often found in shades of blue, pink, purple or white (though green ones can also look chic in a like-hued or white bouquet). Moderately priced with a casual, romantic feel, hydrangea works nicely with lilacs, delphinium and other garden blooms, but can also help to fill out bouquets composed of more formal-looking flowers.
GARDENIA: Creamy petaled, ivory hued gardenias have a rich perfume and a high price tag. To keep costs down, use them sparingly: Two or three floating in a low bowl makes a clean, modern centerpiece, while a smaller posy, offset by the flowers waxy green leaves, can be quite pretty as a bouquet. Because they tend to wilt and bruise easily, think twice before carrying gardenias in hot, humid weather, and wet your fingers before handling them: even oil from your skin can harm the petals. Gardenias show especially well at a softly lit nighttime wedding.
ORCHID: One of the most exotic, seductive-looking wedding-day blooms, orchids come in shades from white to vibrant pink to chartreuse. Only a few of its species are used in weddings. Fragrant, star-shaped cymbidium orchids and wide, flat petaled phalaenopsis orchids are the most expensive. Long stemmed dendrobiums are perfect for cascade bouquet as well as cattleya orchids with their thin, curved petals. Used commonly as accents are tiny onicidium orchids [spray orchids].
