Gorgeous Bridesmaid Bouquets

Isn’t it exciting, planning your wedding day? So much to do. So many decisions to make. Bridesmaid dresses, bridesmaids bouquets and just two out of a potential hundreds you will have to make. With all these decision to make it can be difficult to get really creative and put yourself into the future and envision how and what your special day will look like.

In this post, we’ll focus on bridesmaid flowers. Will they carry bouquets? How many bridesmaids will you have? What style of dresses will they wear and what colour will they be?

What colour the dresses will be will be a big determining factor in what flowers you’ll have. Maybe you’ll also want the bridesmaids to wear flowers in their hair or wear a floral crown.

If you want to be a bit traditional and you are considered a bit of a girly girl then the colour pink could be a great choice for you. The flourishing bouquets can be mixed with pink and white roses that look like they’ve been freshly handpicked that morning. Pink and whites are probably better suited to the Spring and Summer months. Roses have for hundreds of years been associated with love and romance and are deemed the best variety of flower that can make up your entire bridesmaid bouquet.

One particular trend that seems to show no signs of stopping is having different styles and colours for each of the bridesmaid dresses. If this is something you decide to opt for then you will have to do some extra planning to make sure that each style and colour of dress is carefully matched with a corresponding bouquet.

Don’t get too carried away with the bouquets the bridesmaids will carry as you also have other decisions to make regarding flowers. It’s always a nice touch to let the colour theme run over to the groom and ushers too. If you have one distinct colour scheme for the ladies, you can top that off by having a pose in the suit pocket for the gentlemen. This colour scheme can also be reflected in the flowers around the altar and on and around the church pews.
