For a truly elegant and formal look, the bride's bouquet can be done in all white flowers. Without any other colors to distract, all attention is on the bride at this special moment. White flowers such as roses and lilies come in many shades of white, from ivory, cream, or pale beige to a white with just at tint of pink. Choose flowers in shades of white that will compliment the color scheme of the wedding, the reception, and the bridesmaids' dresses
Rich colors can really make a floral bouquet stand out and draw the eye. Choose colors that enhance the color scheme of the wedding and the bridesmaids' dresses. Select from the full spectrum of flower colors including soft pinks to deep, rich cranberry, delicate mauve to deep purple, butter yellow to bright rust, and blush pink to hot fuchsia. Flowers in colors that match the dresses will look subtle, while contrasting tones will call attention to the flowers.
Choose flower buds that look like oval berries for a wonderful compliment to fully opened blooms. On long stems and in clusters, they accent a bridal bouquet with their delicacy.
For an elegant, custom look, have your bridal bouquet and bridesmaids' bouquets hand-tied. Wrap the stems to the bottom with complimentary ribbon or let the stems hang loose. If the wedding day is going to be long and hot, consider making two bridal bouquets, so that you'll have a fresh one for photos.
If you won't be able to part with your bouquet at the end of the day, plan ahead. Make up a small bouquet resembling the official bridal bouquet and use it on the guest book or gift table. At the end of the day, this will be the one that you toss.
A flower girl will look almost angelic with a delicate halo of flowers on her head. Bridesmaids, too, will love the special touch of a blossom or two tied into the hair.
Use similar flowers for the groom and groomsmen boutonnières as you use for bridesmaids' bouquets. The attendants will look like they belong together. If the bride carries an all-white bouquet, consider the same for the groom, such as a small boutonniere of stephanotis, gardenia, or white rose buds
It's a wonderful and thoughtful touch to provide flowers for the people who are special in the lives of the bride and groom and those who have helped with all the planning for this special day. This includes parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins, brothers and sisters, and friends who gave showers... Ladies can be given a single long-stemmed rose with streamers, wrist corsage, or small arrangement to carry with a purse. Men can easily pin on a small boutonnières. Just a simple token is sufficient and will be much appreciated.
