A bride’s bouquet is one of the most photographed design elements of any wedding. You might be flower obsessed (like us) or perhaps more concerned with the menu or dance party. Either way, your bouquet undeniably deserves careful consideration. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Don’t be afraid of color

A classic bouquet with white blooms and greenery is a lovely choice. But if you prefer color, embrace it! We love to see floral designs that experiment with unique palettes. You might not think that two shades go together, but bring in a third that complements both? You have a colorful and cohesive bouquet.

Texture and variety

Sometimes all a bouquet needs is a bunch of large blooms. On the other hand, mixing large stems with smaller, delicate flowers will increase the overall impact. Also, consider looking for flowers, greenery, or vines with textural details.

Shape and movement

We adore bouquets that move and have a life of their own. When talking with your floral designer, explain what draws you to bouquets you’ve seen in the past, but stay open to a variety of flowers, colors and looks – this way your bouquet can take shape organically.
