Veronica Sheaffer Wedding Gowns and Chamomile ... the edible flower

Today I have a few of the latest gowns from the "Little Blue Bow" Collection of wedding gowns for Fall/Winter 2014 from Veronica Sheaffer {all handmade in the USA}. Each of the gowns are priced under $2,500 and include lace, silk, gold and even completely custom options. With this collection you have the option of adding on coordinating tops to further personalize the look. When I saw the gorgeous rustic bouquets of chamomile flowers being held by the model I couldn't help but smile as I wore these little flowers in my hair on my wedding day :) Since these flowers are edible, I thought it would be fun to also share a few recipes that incorporate these flowers into them {seen at the end of this post after the gowns}.

And, now for the yummy chamomile recipes {which would also be perfect wedding treats for your guests}  . . .

Simple Flower Centerpieces for Spring Weddings

I was recently asked by Amara Bridal Registry to be a part of their article 30+ spring wedding tips from the experts. They wanted to talk to the experts {wedding industry professionals and bloggers in the know} to get the best advice and tips for all of those planning a spring wedding. Today, I'm sharing with you my spring wedding tip that I was honored to have published . . .

"Create simple centerpieces for Spring by grouping
several small vases together with single blooms"

You can place single blooms into individual vases that are similar in style, but vary in height. Grouping them in uneven numbers is always best too. With springtime, it's always fun to think in terms of simplicity and while you might be tempted to go for the big floral centerpiece, a simple centerpiece can make just as much of a statement. Plus, you might even like to send each of the couples at the reception tables home with their very own flower after the wedding {and the vase becomes a keepsake for them} :)
