The Best of Skinny Love 2016/17 - FLORALS!

Everyone who knows the Skinny Love ladies knows we're absolutely mad about florals. We're continually trying to up our floral game, from the latest trends in bouquets, to the floating foliage arches we debuted this season thanks to our very own flower whisperer, Vivre.
So of course when we started talking about our highlights of this season, florals were at the top of the list. Being the biggest and best Skinny Love season yet, there were heaps of new florals for us to swoon over!

PETITE POSY: FAB FLORALS FOR HAMILTON!

Yvette at Petite Posy has such unique style, and we were beyond excited to have her on board for our first ever pop-up day in the Waikato. These bouquets (and buttonholes and styling florals!) were just so luxe, full of jewel tones and velvety textures, and wild and free in form. We could go on forever.
We love how Yvette has a knack for topping off her bouquets with hand chosen scarves and ribbons, for something extra special. Our Hamilton couples are in luck too - Yvette is joining us again at our pop-up day at Woodlands on 7 April 2018!
Here's a selection of our faves from Petite Posy:

WINTER SEASON IN AUCKLAND: PROTEA POWER!

This year we had a limited winter season consisting of elopements, bespoke weddings and a pop-up day to cap our year off. We've absolutely loved all the florals Nat at Floramay has put together for us this season, but there was something in the winter bouquets that completely knocked our socks off: king proteas.
These South African beauties are truly magnificent, and they come in enough colours and sizes that every protea we encountered felt like the first time. The combo of these show stopper stems with Floramay's signature freeform style, we've never had so much feedback from brides, grooms and guests on our florals!

SWEETPEA AND JASMINE: SWEET IN THE SUMMERTIME

Pretty much as soon as we knew we were coming to Tauranga we knew we had to get Shontelle from Sweetpea and Jasmine on board for our blooms - and we were not disappointed!
All of our Tauranga brides this season were after our 'blush' palette of whites and soft pastels to suit a traditionally styled wedding. Sweetpea and Jasmine's bouquets fit the bill entirely - romantic blooms in the loveliest colours, a little bit of lush foliage, and a whole lot of romance wrapped up in one bouquet.
Take a look at some of this season's offerings below! Both our Tauranaga dates this season are sold out, but our lucky couples who got in quick will be enjoying Shontelle's florals this November :)

With so many beautiful blooms out there, no two bouquets are the same!
All Skinny Love packages include a bouquet and buttonhole (or two bouquets/two buttonholes for our same sex couples), and we'll be working with these same vendors in the coming pop-up season - so get excited people, there's even more floral fabulousness is to come!
