Hi, my name is Melissa Barrad the owner of I Do…Weddings! In San Diego, California. I'm here today to give you a few ideas on how to create and brainstorm black and white wedding flower arrangements. So you can see here I have two very, very different ideas. Something that a lot of people don't necessary realize when they choose a very classic black and white pallet is there are very few flowers that are naturally occurring ether white or black so with that being said, I definitely am creative when I'm designing something for my clients. I'm going to show you a couple different directions and ways to go to get your creative juices flowing. The first is this very interesting arrangement here you notice that there are not any florals in it, but for a tropical Pacific Rim wedding I did recently, I used these rectangular cylinders and filled them with decorated black river rock and I tipped them with these really cool sea fans that I purchased online. These could be spray painted any color of the rainbow, maybe that's your white and then for this particular wedding I dotted orchids all around the base. You could also put flowers inside, nestled at the top or maybe a white flower on each napkin or having a white table so having a white tablecloth, white linens really make the black pop and just doing tons of candles to make it really visually interesting. Another fun way to go for the more rustic wedding that we're seeing tons and tons of, cotton balls this is actual live cotton you can see that it's natural, you can see the fibers within it, it's just different and interesting, it's white. I put it in a white container because this would be before a more vintage wedding. And by adding in some of the black you could add black containers by way of votives or a black linen just to kind of give it that opposite effect of what you'd be seeing over here or wrapping the container with with black lace or black ribbon and just making sure it's a really simple clean line, but just something that's fun and different. Just because usually you don't see cotton balls at a wedding. I'm Melissa Barrad with I Do…Weddings! In San Diego, and thanks so much for joining me.
