The most obvious elements of a vintage wedding day are the dress and the flowers. A traditional wedding veil made of old lace is an elegant touch; while jewelry passed down through generations is not only visually stunning, it holds a special place in the bride and groom’s heart. Whether a silver brooch on a sweetheart dress or a string of pearls draped over the wedding bouquet; these sentimental touches are personal and touching, exactly as it should be on a wedding day.


You can choose an older venue for the ceremony and reception to surround guests in history. However, any venue can be transformed into a vintage location with the right choice of accents and floral arrangements.

What’s Trending For Upcoming Summer Weddings

shutterstock_143579107With spring around the corner, couples who intend to marry this summer are finalizing wedding details, and flowers are no exception. Everyone at Billy Heroman’s wants to be sure that all the centerpieces, ceremony flowers, bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres, represent the fulfillment of the wedding of each of our bridal customers’ dreams.

We’re always keeping up with wedding trends from year to year, or season to season. We’ve come up with some ideas that incorporate this year’s spring and summer wedding trends in a way that is sure to look spectacular with any wedding theme.

Blush is the New Color for Brides

Many of the most well-known bridal gown designers introduced blush-colored gowns into their 2015 wedding dress collections. This move away from the usual white or ivory dress is a welcome sight for brides who want to mix modern colors with the traditional look and shape of a wedding dress. Let a blush-colored wedding dress guide you in your choice of bouquet flowers. We use soft blush-colored roses with pure white lilies to create this elegant bridal bouquet for 2015. A bit of green adds warmth, while some silvery bling adds some welcome sparkle.

Add Natural Elements

Another popular trend for 2015, and one we hope is here to stay, is the use of natural elements in wedding décor. That includes whimsical accents like long curly willow branches, eucalyptus leaves or berries, and feathery ferns. Any type of natural accent works well in a wedding theme. Consider using lotus pods, cattails, or turning curly willow branches into a support for suspending flowers and votive candles.

Embrace Color

If you want advice about seasonal colors, look to the color gurus from Pantone. Pantone is the company that predicts yearly colors, but it also includes seasonal colors – including the best colors for wedding themes.

According to Bridal Guide, Pantone is calling its color theme for spring 2015 (one we think will extend into summer,) “En Plein Air.” That’s French for “in plain air.” The theme is very much based on the colors of water, but it goes beyond that to include some bright colors – an unexpected surprise. Bright colors include Strawberry ice – shades of pink, lavender, tangerine, and even custard-yellow. Bottom line – embrace color because it’s very trendy this year.

Don’t be afraid to choose bright colors like aquamarine for bridesmaids’ dresses. Incorporate color into your table settings. Be whimsical and wrap silverware in a lavender patterned napkin topped with a sprig of lavender. Tie the rolled-up napkin and the sprig of lavender with natural raffia.
