Wedding bouquets have been a constant symbol of wedding ceremonies for centuries. When they first appeared, they were meant to drive away evil spirits. Later, they evolved to represent the purity and innocence of the bride. However, today wedding bouquets are more about aesthetics and beauty, representing the bride’s style and personality.
Following are some ways how wedding flowers and bouquets have changed over the years, and how you can incorporate them into your wedding.
Gone are the days when bouquets have to be big to be beautiful. A single brilliantly colored flower in a deep red, dark purple or blue, or hot pink looks stunning yet simple next to an ivory, white, or off-white wedding gown. Who says you have to mix and match flowers? Choose a simple bouquet of one type of flower tied with a ribbon, such as sunflowers, roses, or freesias, for an elegant and simple look of sophistication.
White flowers, such as orchards, calla lilies, daisies, or white roses, are a great choice for the bride who is going with a non-traditional color gown, such as a red or black wedding dress. Paperwhites represent purity and elegance. A white flower is always a great choice for a wedding boutonniere.
Pastels are always a stunning choice for wedding bouquets for the bride who wants to add a subtle and graceful touch of color to her wedding flowers. Pale pinks, lilacs, and creams can help create an understated wedding bouquet for an outdoor wedding.
Hand-tied wedding bouquets are extremely popular, as they are an elegant yet simple way to bring a natural vibe to your wedding. Bouquets tied with tulle or ribbon and fastened with an antique brooch are timeless and elegant for an old-fashioned or rustic aesthetic.
Wedding bouquets with a variety of combinations are all the rage right now. A mix of red roses and sunflowers is perfect for a fall wedding or hydrangeas and blackberries for a rustic wedding. You can combine a unique blend of flowers to make your wedding bouquet one of a kind.
If you want to go beyond traditional flowers, you can add fruits, berries, and even herbs to your wedding bouquet for a unique visual effect. Besides, they will add a little something to the scent of your bridal bouquet.
Every girl likes sparkles and glitter! Why not add jewels and gemstones to your bouquet? Add some pearls or crystals to make your bridal bouquet shimmer and shine as you walk down the aisle. Your wedding bouquet will look stunning in pictures with your added bling. You can even add butterflies or birds to your bouquet to give it a unique and elegant flair.
