My most favorite piece as a wedding florist is the Bridal Bouquet. It is the last piece handed to the bride completing her bridal look. It is often the most photographed flower of the day.
When discussing bridal bouquet, I often ask brides what inspires their look for the wedding day and how do they want to feel as a bride. This leads to design a bouquet that is curated especially for their most perfect day.
The color palette is among one of the first things brides often to come to me with when discussing their weddings. This is really important to add the feel of the day as colors will speak for the season and the emotions.
This bouquet marries the boho and romantic style together to create a beautiful bouquet that speaks to the design of the day.
Like a chef in the kitchen, a floral designer also uses ingredients. The more variety of flowers and foliage the more intricate a bridal bouquet is. Each and every ingredient in the designs adds an element to the overall feel and look of the bouquet. Here there were have the large focal flowers making the statement while the small delicate flowers adds movements and texture to the bouquet.
The bride and I also discuss the size of the bouquet. At times we keep it simple with a mono color palette and less ingredients. Other times we have multi color palette with lots of elements.
While I can’t promise specific flowers due to the season and weather, I try my best. K+P told me that tulips were important to them because they were their first date flowers and that they wanted lavender as an element since that was engraved in their engagement rings. Luckily for us I was able to incorporate these flowers into the bouquet and throughout the wedding.
