When you are choosing the bouquets for your wedding, there are a variety of things to factor in. You not only want your bouquets to be beautiful, but they should suit both you and the style of wedding that you are having.
The first bouquet that should be designed is the bride’s. After all, you are the center of attention! Once you have figured out exactly what you would like for your bouquet, you can begin to design the bouquets for your bridesmaids. The only exception would be if you know that you will want your bridesmaids to carry bouquets that are an exact replica of your own, only on a smaller scale. If you choose very costly blooms for yourself, keep in mind that you will be facing a large expense once you multiply the cost per stem times four or five bridesmaids.
The shape of the bouquet that you choose should echo the style of your wedding gown. For instance, if you plan to wear a 1950s inspired strapless gown with a full skirt, the round shape of a nosegay is the perfect complement. On the other hand, if your gown is a slinky silk sheath, a slim and sophisticated bunch of calla lilies would be a much better match. Be careful that you do not cover up any of the special details on your gown with a wedding bouquet that is overly large or has a lot of trailing greens.
The prettiest bouquets will be appropriate to the season. Don’t waste your time or money trying to locate flowers that are not in season at the time of your wedding. As my florist told me, I might be able to find your favorite flower out of season, but you may not like how it looks when it gets here. You are better off choosing an alternative that you can be confident will arrive looking fresh and beautiful for your wedding day. A nice touch is to include seasonal accents in your wedding bouquets, such as wired acorns for an autumn wedding or holly mixed with red roses if your wedding is at Christmastime
