It’s All About the Dress

It’s All About the Dress

A bridal bouquet is a fashion accessory that “should accent the dress,” not obscure it,” says floral designer Lorraine Cooper, AIFD, in the September issue of Flowers& magazine. The article, aptly titled “It’s All About the Dress,” includes 12 bouquets she created to complement six popular wedding gown silhouettes — all magnificently photographed by Ron Derhacopian. Cooper goes into considerable detail about the thinking behind her beautiful designs, many of which feature David Austin Wedding Roses.

We think this informative, inspirational piece is a “must-read” for both floral designers and brides-to-be. Flowers& has graciously allowed us to share it with you.

The Washington Post: Garden Roses, The Future of Valentine’s Day?

The front of the Style section in The Washington Post features a huge picture David Austin’s luxury cut roses above an article by garden columnist Adrian Higgins titled, “This Valentine’s Day, some florists are abandoning the familiar long stems in favor of garden roses.”

The story opens with a description of floral designer Holly Chapple creating a Valentine’s day bouquet with David Austin’s Miranda and talks about the growing popularity of garden roses for weddings and special occasions.

Higgins notes that “the hottest garden roses” come from David Austin and explains that David Austin Wedding Roses are specifically bred “for their cut-flower qualities….strong stems, durability after cutting,” while retaining the “natural beauty and romance of the antique rose.”

Luxurious, fragrant David Austin Roses are the perfect expression of love in bloom. Perhaps that’s why the  February issue of  Martha Stewart Living offered only one suggestion — a romantic array of our beauties in soft, pale tones — for Valentine’s Day flowers this year. The two-page spread featured this lovely arrangement, photographed by Mike Krautter. The text reads:  “Sorbet-hued blooms hit just the right note for Valentine’s Day…we chose garden roses from David Austin Roses… with petals more ruffly than the standard sort — an effect made even sweeter thanks to their lovely scent.”
