#TeamLovely, ever wondered what makes up the perfect bridal bouquet? If you’re wondering how to choose your own flowers for that very special day, fret no more.
Your wedding blooms are a once in a lifetime accessory that deserve the utmost care and attention when putting it together.
Think about it: when else do you get to carry a beautiful arrangement of flowers designed especially for you, all day long?!
Below are the top 5 tips to guide you to find the perfect bouquet.
1. Try to choose your wedding dress before your flowers. Your bridal gown is the beautiful canvas on which your bouquet is called to accentuate with refined elegance.
Your bridal blooms should elevate but not overwhelm your look. Your dress is the main attraction, so play it safe and choose a bouquet that highlights your gown’s lovely silhouette and delicate details- in an understated and stylish way.
2. Consider the shape, weight and size of your bouquet carefully. This is crucial to monitor prior to your wedding since you‘ll be holding it most of the day. Your bouquet can throw off your entire look and may even feel uncomfortable to hold. These are little details that if paid attention to prior to your big day, can make all the difference.
3. Find out what flowers are in season on your wedding day and choose accordingly. You don’t want to expect peonies when they are out of season or plan for lilies and be disappointed when they are not available. Take this into consideration before you plan which flowers you’ll be incorporating into your bouquet.
4. Choose a photogenic arrangement. Choose flowers that will look picture perfect with your entire bridal ensemble and that won’t overlap into your detailing. Consider the exact colour of your wedding dress so that the contrast of the bouquet against your gown remains harmonious and symmetric. This is crucial to creating beautiful and aesthetically pleasing memories to treasure forever.
5. Add a personal touch.
Try to includes flowers that have a personal or traditional meaning into your arrangements. If you have a family heirloom such as an antique brooch, a lace hanky or something else to work into your something old, new, borrowed and blue, ask your florist to add it into the top of the stems.
