Our Wed on Canvas Bride, Ashley, had the most beautiful Glamelia bouquet which inspired this post! I've pulled together a short gallery of photos to inspired from Ashley's bridal bouquet! You might be thinking ... "what exactly IS a Glamelia bouquet?" A Glamelia is basically a handmade single flower that is created using many petals. From a little research, I learned that the Glamelia became a trend during the 1940s when Camelia's were very expensive blooms as a result of the war. Florists would take petals from Gladiolus flowers and use them to build up a single Camelia flower. (So that's where we get the oh so glamorous name :Gla-melia!) Today, whether as a bridal bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, or even as a decor accent, the Glamelia look is simply gorgeous ... and sure to make a statement!
