The bridal bouquet is an essential accessory for every bride in the world as she is going to hold it just once in her lifetime. She has to make sure that the style of her dress matches that of the bouquet.
Every bride should be asking herself some specific questions about her wedding bouquet: What flowers should she choose in her bouquet? What colors/shapes are the most suitable for her dress? How big her bouquet might be? And how she is supposed to hold her bouquet?
Anyway, if you’re a bride, here are some tips to enable you to choose the right bouquet for you:
1 Choose your wedding dress before choosing your bouquet. The design of your bouquet must depend on the style of your dress. Look into the bouquet shapes as they can be arranged in many styles. Many kinds of flowers are designed to create unusual shapes. Then try not to hide your waist, so make sure the bouquet is not bigger than your waist. My advice to you is to choose carefully and elegantly.
Note: bouquet fashions always change, but the most important thing is to choose it to cope with your dress and doesn’t hide your beautiful details.
2 Your wedding dress color is key, especially white, ivory and cream as there are so many different shades; you have to choose the right type of bloom for the exact color of your dress. If you have any spare from your wedding dress, use it to wrap the stems of your bouquet flowers; you’ll have then the perfect match. It’ll look wonderful.
3 How to hold your bouquet?
When you get nervous and have no idea how to hold a bouquet, hold your bouquet in one hand below your hip, slightly away from your dress not to covet the beautiful details. This will relax and open your shoulders, improving your posture and creating the best pose for your photographer!
4 If you are planning to have an outdoor wedding, you may need to select flowers that can withstand the weather. If you have a hand-tied bouquet, you can refresh it at the end of the day by cutting an inch of the stems and putting it into some water.
5 If you still don’t know how to choose, you can look through some magazines of that type or on the websites that can help you to discover what appeals to you. It’ll be useful to you.
I guess I have given you some ideas about how to choose a bridal bouquet. I wish these tips have been useful enough for you. If you couldn’t do it by yourself, you can ask a florist or look through magazines and websites. Then you might be able to choose the right bouquet for you.
