Sport Themed Wedding Flowers

Bridal white roses, white mini callas, white roses, green coffee bean, orange spray roses and white lisianthus were used to create this country chic bridal bouquet.

 When I first met with Jason at a cafe near his job at a local sport team paraphernalia store, he immediately told me he and his fiance were looking for a florist who could visualize his unique concept. The challenge he presented to us was to create a bouquet and matching boutonniere for each of the 5 attendants and bridesmaids to correspond to each of the 5 Philadelphia professional sport teams: Eagles, Philadelphia Union, Flyers, 76ers, Phillies. The only stipulation his fiance Becky gave him was to make sure the flowers had a country or wildflower feel.

This request was quite a creative challenge because it was almost as if we were creating 5 unique weddings and tying them into one wedding party.  We were also very careful to keep the wedding from looking kitschy and more like a country chic wedding.

 We started by reviewing the logos for each of the sport teams and built our designs around 2 – 3 basic colors for each.

Each of the boutonnieres contained at least two flowers from the corresponding bridesmaid bouquet.

 

Becky really liked the idea of using metal tins with full wildflower arangements at the altar, so we used this oportunity to pull all of the various sport team colors together.

Using tall galvanized metal buckets for our alter arrangements, we were able to use every flower and color used in our themed bouquets while maintaining our country chic theme.

San Diego weddings open up so many opportunities for themed or any other style of wedding flowers. Becky and Jason’s wedding is no exception. We blended Philadelphia sport teams and country chic using the Pacific Ocean as a breath taking backdrop.  Very few cities offer what San Diego does for wedding flower variety and availability. Keep us in mind if you know of anyone looking for a San Diego or destination wedding florist.
