Today I want to share with you dreamy and lovely handmade bouquets and boutonnieres by Kate at Kate Said Yes Wedding Accessories. Kate has graciously offered our readers a 10% discount on her designs. More details on that below.

“My style is soft and romantic – I love fluffy silks and sparkly accents,” Kate says. “I think each of my items has a little something special that makes it a bit different than a traditional bouquet. Whether it’s a little feather accent, a bright ribbon, or a rhinestone brooch, I want each of my products to have a little something that makes the buyer feel good.”

{Designer Secret} Since flowers are one of the most important design choices for your wedding, Kate recommends that you really set the tone of the wedding through your flowers. Even if that means reducing the emphasis on your flowers.

“Soft and romantic morning garden wedding? Keep the flowers light and simple,” she says. “Poufy dress and lots of sparkle? Don’t let your flowers upstage your dress. As I get to know my brides, I find that their choice of flower and style really tend to match their personality, whether it be big and bold, or traditional and soft-spoken.”

“One question I’ve been asked a lot lately is, ‘Is it okay for a bride to carry a small bouquet? Does this make me look like less of a bride?’ I have a lot of brides who are ditching the overgrown bouquet and adopting more petite styles, whether it be to save money, or to de-emphasize the flowers and shift the focus on another style aspect of the wedding.”

“My answer to this question is, of course! On your wedding day, you can do anything you want, and all that really matters in the end is that you are happy with your style decisions.”

Kate started her business actually designing boutonnieres a little over a year after her own wedding.

“I often hear that grooms don’t want their boutonnieres to match their bride’s bouquet too closely, because they want to stay away from anything too feminine,” Kate says. “And that’s okay! You can do a lot using masculine colors, earthy flowers, and more organic looking designs. I’ve had other grooms, however, who are totally fine wearing bouts with feathers and glitter, if that’s what their lady wants!”

Kate uses silk and real-touch flowers for her bouquets and boutonnieres. So they last beyond the wedding day, and may help brides planning destination weddings get that off the to-do list early.

“Throwing out my bouquet after my wedding was traumatic,” Kate admits. “And I don’t want any other bride to experience that! I love that you know exactly what you are getting before the morning of your wedding. My brides can hold their bouquets in their hands, know exactly what it looks and feels like, and then after the wedding, have it as a keepsake.”

“I value the freedom my business gives me to express my creativity and be involved in a bride’s special day,” Kate says. “It makes me feel so happy to know that I can play a part in making a bride happy. Weddings are such personal events, and I feel blessed with every wedding my products are featured in.”
