Ever find that picking just one bouquet to carry down the aisle can be a little dizzying?
Where to start. — if you want a bouquet that’s destined to look as fantastic as you will, let your gown be your guide.
A new trend we are seeing the past couple of years is the festival Bohemian style gowns. A clutch bouquet of texture greens and open garden roses or peonies when in season. We loved the look of that is just plucked from the open fields, the garden, the roadside and for the very brave bride ,.....the vegetable patch (think mini pumpkins)!
Classic gowns call for classic bouquets. Think about a tight, round bouquet of roses, or mini calla lilies in feminine shades. Ribbon-wrapped stems help create a rich, decadent look; you might even incorporate crystals or other bits of sparkle into your bouquet.
If your gown is Victorian, Renaissance or other historical style. Consider a bieder meier, a structured round bouquet popular in the Victorian era, a nosegay of roses — or any classic bloom. Pale colors and old-fashioned flowers like lavender or peonies may help create a historical look, especially for theme wedding.
