Color Choice for Your Wedding Bouquet

Your wedding bouquet doesn't necessarily have to be composed of the same color scheme as your chosen wedding palette, but it should vibe well with the rest of your décor, and most importantly your theme. When you design your own wedding bouquet, let the bouquet describe who you are as a person.

Color analysts say that warm colors are vivid, bright, and overwhelming. If you are a person who likes excitement, and to stand out and be noticed, a warm colored bouquet will probably be best. Examples of warm colors are red, orange, yellow, and gold.

Cool colors are more serene and soothing. If you are the type of person who prefers a night relaxing in front of a fire instead of partying all night long, who enjoys peace and calm, then you will probably relate best to a cool colored bouquet. Cool colors to use when you design your own wedding bouquet are blue, gray, green, and silver. If you are wondering about the two colors at opposite ends of the spectrum, white is considered a cool color while black is considered warm.

Flower Choice for Your Wedding Bouquet

Design your wedding bouquet using flowers that reflect your personal style. If you like being exotic and different, orchids should be at the top of your list. If you are big into romance, the obvious choice is a big bouquet of deep red roses. If you love being a "girlie girl" look at daisies and lilys for your wedding bouquet.

Accents for Your Wedding Bouquet

You don't have to use baby's breath to design your own wedding bouquet, but it is a common element of a bouquet. You can pick other small colorful flowers to complement your main flower arrangement.

If you like being creative, why not think about adding bamboo shoots, or large plant leafs to go with your arrangement instead of small flowers. An example of large leafs to look at for your unusual wedding bouquet are Elephant ear plant leafs. You must take good care of these unusual plants so that they won't dry out before your wedding day. Follow these tips on how to design your own wedding bouquet so that your custom bouquet will look so good that you won't even want to part ways with it at the end of your wedding.

    Who doesn't love wedding bouquets!

    Remember that some flowers are in season for only a couple of weeks and just when this is will depend on the weather and seasonal fluctuations. Therefore don't set your heart on a particular flower just because you saw it flowering on the same date a year before your wedding.

    Have a good google search on all the different shapes of bouquets you can have. You might go for a single flower or a basket of flowers, a compact ball or a cascading waterfall bouquet... Lots and lots of choices here.

    Also, if you are going to do your bouquet, think about the bridesmaids, the groom and his groomsmen, as well as the decor when choosing your flowers. Will you be doing them all or will you need help?
