Flowers are a usually a major part of a wedding and typically 5% of the entire wedding budget is spent on flowers. The wedding bouquets are a whole attraction on their own, with carefully planned out colors, flowers, flower sizes, and decorations. A simple and elegant wedding bouquet is the perfect accessory to compliment your gorgeous gown and smiling face. We say ‘simple’ because you want your wedding bouquet to highlight your dress, not detract from it.
If your bouquet is too ‘flashy,’ your dress may not receive the attention it deserves. While the main event is the wedding ceremony, small yet intricate details such as the bouquets are what really pull the whole celebration together.
If you haven’t decided what type of flowers to use for your wedding bouquet, mull these options over. Use your resources (such as the internet) to look at different varieties of silk flowers and real wild flowers. Several wildflowers that are suggested are: Queen Anne’s lace, poppies, Canada Lily, European Columbine, New England Aster, true forget-me-not, Indian blanket, and Carolina Spring Beauty.
For brides who want a dramatic yet interesting bouquet, the scepter arrangement is the popular choice. More like the one held by beauty titlists, the scepter bouquet is a long stemmed flower arrangement that may be embellished with ribbons, sashes, and beads for a more impressive effect.
