PICK ME - CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING BOUQUET

Categories: Inspiration

Whatever florals you choose, create an impact with a bouquet that is not just a lovely accessory but a work of art that's as unique as your personality and your sense of style.

Although the colours and types of flowers are the elements brides tend to think of first, you need to consider all aspects of the bouquet, from its shape and size to finishing accents such as ribbons, jewels or broaches. Be inspired by some of our favourite arrangements, created by the team at Brisbane Fresh Flowers.

THE BIG PICTURE

The ideal time to begin thinking about bridal flowers is after you've chosen your gown and ceremony setting - this will let you select a bouquet that harmonises with the wedding's mood and theme.

The decisions you make for your own bouquet will also set the tone for other flowers, including the blooms for the wedding party and centrepieces.

QUESTIONS TO GUIDE YOUR CHOICE
Do you prefer classic wedding flowers, such as roses or calla lilies?
Or a bold contrast that might come from purple dahlias and orange tulips
Unique or modern arrangements like succulents?
Do you like tailored or organic, free-form arrangements?
Small blossoms or a few large, striking flowers?

THE SCENT OF LOVE

Fragrance adds an extra dimension to a bouquet and awakens another sense. If you include a bloom with a lovely aroma, whenever you come across it in the future, you'll be reminded of your wedding day.

FINDING THE RIGHT FIT

Bridal flowers can be arranged in many styles, from a petite, compact style, to a domed bouquet or a cascade. Elaborate bridal bouquets tend to work well with ornate wedding gowns that have full skirts and long trains, while simple ones pair best with sleek dresses.

There are no strict rules to follow, however; the key is to avoid extremes that appear unbalanced. The bouquet should also complement the bride's own proportions. Heavy flowers may overwhelm petite women, whereas small bouquets can look too diminutive when they are carried by statuesque or curvaceous brides

TIP : Although most blossoms are available year round from florists, flowers are most affordable and best looking when in season.

TIP : Take photos of your wedding dress and wedding party to your florist appointment, better yet, if you have fabric swatches, take them!
