Flowers can reflect the backgrounds of the couple, and wedding bouquet ideas could incorporate the flowers that are the birth month flowers of the bride and groom. Some brides choose the same flowers for their bouquets that their mothers or grandmothers carried at their weddings. Another idea to make the wedding bouquet special is to use flowers from a special date when you were surprised with flowers, such as the day of your proposal. The same flowers can be used for the bouquet and to decorate the church and reception site. Find out what flowers your attendants love and create your bouquet with each of the flowers.
Use seasonal combinations as wedding bouquet ideas. Delicate spring flowers such as pink peonies and lily of the valley, which has a wonderful scent, are popular for early spring weddings. For summer, many brides favor roses, which come in a wide array of beautiful pastel colors, and can be mixed with other summer flowers to create lovely bouquets. Roses in the same shade as the bridesmaids' gowns look exquisite. Flowers in warm reds, oranges and golds are perfect for autumn weddings. For festive Christmas weddings, deep red roses and baby's breath are stunning.
Irish or Celtic themed wedding could incorporate a mixture of colorful wildflowers for wedding bouquets for the bride and her attendants. The shape of the bouquet for an Irish wedding is the traditional nosegay style. Flower girls usually carry the same flowers in baskets with cascading ribbons. For Irish-themed weddings, wildflowers that are indigenous to Ireland are often used. One of the most popular flowers is the daisy, which grows in Ireland. One flower, which grows in Ireland, could be the focal point of the bouquets, with others that are grown elsewhere, mixed in. Wildflowers for a themed Celtic wedding could also be based on color. Some suggestions are pink anemones, green ivy or rosemary, blue bells or purple sea asters.
Single or multiples?
Your first decision is whether you want a bouquet or a single flower? The single flowers create a simple, stylish look, while the bouquet will create more of a statement. The most popular choice for a single flower is an orchid or lily. These work well because of their long stems. Most florists will recommend a ribbon accessory to a single flower as it make it more comfortable on the hands (which mage get a little sweaty with nerves), and also creates a slightly softer more flowing look. The second option is a more traditional bouquet. These are a great way to make a statement and also to create a theme of colours and styles for a wedding. With a bouquet you can combine the colours you will have for the bridesmaids dresses, page boys cumberbunds, or even to highlight colours in your own outfit.
Variety within the flowers or all the same?
If you have decided against the single flower option, you now have to choose what flowers will make up your bouquet. Let me give you some examples as to the different effects using the rose as a basis. Firstly, you can have a bouquet make entirely of roses all the same colour. This creates a very dynamic and striking look and the colour can be chosen to match or compliment other colours in your wedding. Now lets suppose that you stick with the roses, but you incorporate shades of different colours.
