Flower Friday: A Blooms & Blossoms Bouquet


It’s the last Friday of the month and we are feeling good here at UBB! Sending you off for a spectacular spring weekend with this gorgeous bouquet from one of our preferred florists Kelli with Blooms & Blossoms and her thoughts on the bridal bouquet! Thanks to Lindsey Orton Photography.


Bridal bouquets are my absolute favorite floral piece to create so when I was presented with the opportunity to design an arrangement for Utah Bride Blog I naturally chose to design a bouquet.

In my opinion I think the bouquet is the most important design element of the entire wedding. It’s a beautiful statement piece to compliment the bride and the dress. And, actually, an entire wedding can be designed around the bride’s bouquet.

I always start my consultations discussing the wedding bouquet. The flowers, style and feel of the bouquet are all important factors when coming up with a design. There are many things to consider when choosing flowers. Do you want large, lush blooms, blooms with a high petal count? Do you want a lot of texture or do you want something sweet and simple? It’s also important to keep your wedding dress in mind. You want your flowers to compliment your dress, not compete with it.

Whether your budget for flowers is big or small I always recommend not skimping on the bouquet. Every guest will see you with your bouquet. It will appear in several if not most of your wedding photos that you will look back on for years to come.

When you meet with your floral designer bring ideas to help them see your vision and then let them use their expertise and experience in helping you find the perfect blooms.
