Comments Off on Ideas For Wedding Flowers: Bridal Bouqet Design by Francina Smit

Bridal bouquets have been around for a very long time. In fact Greek brides in ancient times had bouquets made of herbs that were believed to ward of evil spirits! Since you may be searching for wedding flower ideas and because bridal bouquet design has evolved so much, this article will be dedicated to different bridal bouquets.

Designs have become bolder and more individual which is a great thing. You can leave your mark on your bridal bouquet as well and have something that truly reflects who you are. More and more interesting materials are being used in bridal bouquets and it gives the designer a lot more to work with besides various flowers.

Although you can have a bridal bouquet in any style, color and design you like, this is not something you can pass over. Here are some wedding flower ideas and in particular ideas for the bridal bouquet:

1. There are many ways to personalize your bouquet like adding a monogram to it. You can for instance have the groom’s first letter of his last name (or both the bride and groom’s) printed on the ribbon that will be used for the bouquet. Another way to include monograms is to use piping or wiring shaped in the relevant letter and inserted in the bouquet among the flowers.

2. Lately bridal bouquets have become more bold in color and design and it does not have to be white, cream or pastel anymore. Purple and hot pink, a mix of citrus colors or orange and red. Or you can just have a monochromatic theme and use just one favorite color. This is a fun touch to any wedding and the bouquet really pops against the dress!

3. A very practical (but beautiful) solution to keeping cost down in these hard economic times is to make use of a “breakaway bouquet”. Although this appears to be one big bouquet, it is actually two or three in one which can be taken apart easily and be used separately for the tossing bouquet and to give to the matron of honor or other honored person or persons. The bride may also want to keep one for herself.

4. If you really want to go with something different, you must think texture. And not just in the flowers but using different materials to add texture to the bouquet. This adds a three dimensional feel which is very unique.

When you decide which flowers are abundant at the time of your wedding, select ones that have different textures to use together like hydrangeas and calla lilies or star gazers and roses. Then maybe add some special elements to enhance the dimensional look. Visit a hobby store and wander the flowers section to get ideas of interesting textures to add.

If you do some research you will find that bridal bouquet design is not as structured and traditional as it was before. This is very exciting – for you and for the quests. This is your wedding after all and you do not want to look the same as everyone else do you?

If you are like most girls, you’ve been dreaming about your wedding day since you were a little girl. There are so many details to think about that it can become quite mind-boggling though. I have a lot of experience with weddings and will be glad to help.
