What is your wedding color theme? For bridal and bridesmaid's bouquets, an important point to consider is the color of the dresses. You can choose to coordinate or contrast the color of your flowers with the dresses.
Is your wedding dress white? - If your wedding gown is going to be white or ivory, you will not have any problems with the color of your bouquet. You can co-ordinate your flowers with the color of your bridesmaids' dresses. Some brides are hesitant about having white flowers in-front of a white dress. One way to get around this is to add a collar of dark green leaves or other foliage around the bridal bouquet to make it stand out beautifully
Is your wedding dress colored? - If you are going for a colored dress, then more thought needs to go into the color of your bouquet. You cannot go wrong with white wedding flowers – they always look good against a colored dress. Or go with a monochromatic color scheme and use flowers that are shades of the color of your wedding dress. For instance if your dress is blue you could incorporate flowers that include intense deep blue through to paler blues. Your third option, would be to use a complementary color. Complementary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the artist's color wheeI. So, if you have a red dress you could have a bouquet that was predominately green (the complementary color to red). The other complementary colors are yellow/purple and blue/orange. Using a complementary color provides a natural color harmony.
Do you want a seasonal color theme? - Some wedding color themes are based around the colors of the season in which the wedding is being held. For instance, brides marrying in the fall may wish to use the rich orange colors of the season teamed with the color of the bridesmaids' dresses. Close
