Today it is our preferred florist’s day for the month and Kelli with Blooms & Blossoms is joining us with a look at a gorgeous bridal bouquet and a perfectly complimented bridesmaids bouquet as well as her thoughts on these two different but similar bouquet needs! Thanks to Lindsey Orton for photography.
I tend to focus on the bride’s bouquet in my posts but there is something so special about a bridesmaid bouquet.
A bouquet is a beautiful accessory to a maid of honor and/or a bridesmaid. These ladies are typically family or close friends who have a special place in your heart, people who have helped shape you and people who have been by your side through the good and bad. So a bouquet can also be a token of thanks. They are a way to let these special people in your life know you love them and they are important to you.
When deciding the on the design and look of these bouquets it’s important to keep the bride’s bouquet in mind. I’ve done several different variations to these bouquets. Some like them to be a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet, some like them to be slightly different and I have had a few clients want something completely different than the bride’s bouquet. In my opinion the only rule is to design these bouquets to compliment the bride and her bouquet and create a unified look.
For this wedding we created the bride’s bouquet without foilage. She wanted a classic look and a tighter shape. To make the bridesmaid’s bouquets different but still complimentary we created them to be a bit looser and added in soft foilage.
