Bridal Bouquets & Brightly Colored Flowers

Having owned a wedding floral business and bridal salon for many years, I know flowers and brides pretty well. 

I also know that the trend for the past few years has been for brides to carry brightly colored bouquets. Let's examine that trend.

Bridal Bouquets: A Different Perspective..

When my clients would ask me about having a brightly colored bouquet, I would immediately pick up a bridal magazine and find a photo of a bride with a bright red or purple bouquet. 

"What do you see first in this photo?" I'd ask. 

"The flowers..." was always the answer. 

"When you walk down the aisle, do you want your guests to see your flowers first, or do you want them to see YOU?" was my next question.

The answer is obvious!

The Bride as a Total Picture...

When a bride walks down the aisle, she should be a total picture! No one item should draw attention to itself. 

In other words, her bouquet should not stand on its own, and neither should her jewelry, or her headpiece.

When she walks down that glorious aisle, people should say, "What a beautiful bride!" and not "What a stunning bouquet."

The Perfect Bridal Bouquet...

The perfect bouquet complements the bride and her gown and does not, like I said, stand on its own.

For that reason, a monochromatic (one color) bouquet is a good choice. Your gown may be white and your bouquet made up of all-white flowers. White flowers come in various shades of white. Some may look a little green or yellow or even pink--not to mention their many different textures. These bouquets are beautiful.

Or, you may prefer light pastels, which also do not detract from the bride and her gown. The choice is yours!
