norma dean designs giveaway

I am so excited to introduce you to Norma Dean Designs, an eco-friendly, “forever” bouquet and bridal accessory line created by my talented friend, Melanie.  Melanie is also the owner of Bella Flora – you may remember seeing her succulents in my garden goddess post.  I absolutely LOVE  Melanie’s style – it’s original, feminine, and earthy with a flair.  Her newest company, Norma Dean Designs, offers handmade bridal bouquets using all natural materials.

As you can see in this Norma Dean Designs bouquet, every last detail is intricately designed.  Best of all – it is a forever keepsake from your special day.

I can imagine how beautiful this would also be for an Autumn wedding in the countryside…

There are nine fabulous lines from which to choose.  To name just a few: country cotton, nautical charm, woodland pixie, and lovely lavender.

If I were planning an elegant barn wedding, I would go with the country cotton line.  Can’t you see it – big hay bails stacked everywhere, vintage lights strung across the beams, baskets of flowers, and champagne glasses flowing.  Love all the textures put together in this bouquet, right down to the birch wrap.  I could also see this in a winter-white wedding in so many different types of settings.

And the lavish all-white bridal bouquet from the soft romantic line.

Norma Dean Designs also offers custom bouquets and will work with any collected pieces you may have – such as a family heirloom brooch.  How gorgeous would that be in an all white bouquet?!  Soooo many possibilities.  I absolutely love the concept of having a bridal bouquet and/or bridal accessories that last forever.  What an incredible memento to have from your most cherished day.

Loving the peacock feather wrist cuff from the earthy elegance line.  I gave the all white country cotton wrist cuff as a gift (along with her baby gift) to a friend at her baby shower – she had a fit!!

    Hydrangeas would have to be the one flower I think is beautiful. This bouquet is quite lovely.

    We had white hydrangeas for our fall wedding. That will always be my favorite flower. I have planted several hydrangea bushes in our yard, so that we can have arrangements around our home through the summer and fall to remind us of our wedding!

    My wedding bouquet consisted of tulips, roses and stargazer lillies. That was 16 years ago. Now, it’d have to have a few peonies to make me happy:)

    Wow, gorgeous arrangements! We used hydrangeas and peonies, two of my favorite flowers. I just wish I could grow peonies here in Florida.

    Eleven years ago this December I carried a bouquet of stephanotis surrounded by red berries and cedar. It was beautiful and so are these.
