As a wedding planner with an in-house florist, we get the pleasure of not only helping our couples with the overall aesthetic of their wedding day, but also the floral design details. And one of its most important elements, the bridesmaids' bouquets.
This is where, as floral designers, we get to be creative but also set the tone for the rest of the wedding. Besides the ceremony backdrop, it is one of the first floral design pieces that guests notice (and will definitely be featured in many of your photographs), therefore it is a great way to preview what is to come later at the reception.
Based on our bride's preferences and the bridesmaid dresses, we put together a complimentary color palate for the bridesmaids' bouquets. While the bride's bouquet tends to be lighter in tone, her maids' bouquets are where we can really play with color and texture.
As you can see in many of the images below, we like to inject colorful blooms that represent the season. Beautiful lilac in the spring, orange garden roses in the fall. However many of our brides are looking for a neutral color palate, which lends itself to a beautiful wedding that will never go out of style. Either way you will have beautiful flowers to compliment your beautiful girls!
