We asked our lead wedding designer for advice on how to select the perfect bouquet for your wedding day.
Q: What is the biggest factor when choosing a bridal bouquet?
The wedding dress is a big factor for how a bridal bouquet should be styled.
Is your dress a ballgown style? A classic round bouquet may look the best with that type of gown.
For a mermaid or trumpet dress, a classic round bouquet or a cascade bouquet would look stunning.
The A-line dress has the most versatility. There are many bouquet styles that would work well with this dress. A romantic garden style, classic round, or cascade bouquet would perfectly compliment your dress.
A bohemian wedding dress would look beautiful with a romantic garden bouquet or tear drop shaped bouquet.
Fit and flair is a more modern cut. The best bouquet shape to accentuate that dress would be a classic round or tear drop bouquet.
Q: Does the bride’s height and stature play a role in choosing the bouquet?
The bride’s height and stature plays a big role in the bouquet choice and size of the bouquet. We want to accentuate your dress. Our bouquets are customized to each of our brides to best coordinate with their uniqueness.
Q: Does the color of the wedding dress affect the color of the bridal bouquet?
Yes, the color of the bride’s dress does have an influence on the bouquet colors. For example, if you have a nude or champagne toned dress, we suggest using neutral color blooms in champagne, nude tones, and pops of rich bold tones to bring it all together. We will guide you through the process of selecting the best complimenting blooms for your bouquet.
Q: If the wedding gown has lace, rhinestones, pearls or metallic threading, how do you incorporate them into the bouquet?
Oftentimes, we will accent the bouquet handle with accents from a bride’s dress. You can line pearl pins of rhinestones down the bouquet candle. Adding pearls, or rhinestones accents to flowers are a nice delicate touch.
Q: What types of bouquets do you see trending right now?
Currently we are seeing bohemian garden bouquets, are trending right now. The gorgeous greenery, arranged with beautiful blooms make a truly romantic bouquet.
