The one best thing to keep in mind when designing your bridal bouquet is to think like a real estate agent: location! The location of your wedding plays a huge role in determining the look and style of your day, and your bridal bouquet should coordinate with that – not clash.
In the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Weddings there’s a fabulous story covering the perfect bouquet designs for everything from a chic city affair to romantic garden weddings. Luckily, I have three bouquets from this feature to share with you here today!
If you’re getting married among the trees you should incorporate some pops of color to make sure your bouquet stands out, but also plenty of green to channel that forest feeling.
The above bouquet, tied with the most adorable green velvet ribbon, contains purple clematis, forget-me-nots, blue muscari, white veronicas, gomphrenas, orange lady slipper orchids, and ferns. All of these blooms are totally forest appropriate and when combined – simply enchanting.
I can’t deny it – garden weddings are my favorite. They’re feminine and simply oozing with charm. Give off a Jane Austen air by filling your bouquet with romantic red ranunculus, wine-hued vibumum, pale peonies, white camellias, and pink sweet peas.
Prairie weddings are budget friendly and rife with ways to gather and DIY your own location-appropriate bouquet. Mix and match pink scabiosas with white gomphrenas, yellow billy balls, spiky veronicas, bunny-tail grass, narcissus, baby’s breath, mimosas, exploding grass, euphorbias, wax flowers, and chamomile for the perfect prairie look.
