Let your bouquet show off your personality and style! Take a look at some of the ways that a bride can personalize her bouquet.
1. Same shade colour arrangements
You can use a single color to create a beautiful bouquet whether you select a single flower type such as a red rose for a n elegant traditional bouquet, or a combination of different flowers in the same shade for a modern look.
2. Sparkle your bouquet
For a breathtaking bouquet add some sparkle with some bouquet jewelry or better still carry a crystal bouquet this will never die and you will have a beautiful keepsake of your wedding day.
Bridal bouquet jewelry comes in many forms from crystal buckles for the handle of the bouquet to bouquet pins which can not only decorate the bouquet handle but can be carefully inserted into the flower heads to give some sparkle.
There is piece of bouquet jewelry for just about every wedding theme that you could think of from crystal butterflies, sparking monograms to tiny crosses for a Christian wedding theme.
3. Related to wedding theme
Bouquets can also be personalized with details which tie in with the wedding theme or motif. If you have chosen a butterfly design for your invitations, perch a beautiful silk butterfly on top of your flowers. Or nestle real shells into the flowers for a beach wedding. A really cute idea is to tie a couple of silver or pewter charms to a ribbon which dangles from the bouquet handle. How about a pair of lovebirds or a charm to symbolize the city where you met Or dangle a couple of crystal snowflakes from the bouquet for a winter wedding. The options are only limited by your imagination.
4. Memory of someone special
You can also use your bouquet accents to show your allegiance to a cherished cause or in memory of someone special. Let’s say that the bride recently lost her favorite aunt to breast cancer. A pink ribbon pinned to the handle of her bouquet wrap would be a fitting tribute to her dear aunt, as well as a way to show support of the battle to beat cancer. If your brother is in the army and will miss your wedding due to a deployment, maybe you would like to pin a red, white, and blue bow to your bouquet to have a piece of him with you on your special day.
5. Wrap them up
Ribbons are certainly the most common type of bouquet wrap, but there are so many interesting varieties available that a ribbon wrap is by no means ordinary or run of the mill. The ribbons can be a fun place to add a dash of color to all-white bouquets.
The texture of a ribbon can be a fun element to play with when designing a bouquet wrap. A crisp grosgrain ribbon in a pink and green stripe would look wonderful neatly tied around a bunch of pink peonies. A very elegant option is a crinkled ribbon with metallic threads, such as a bronze or platinum color.
