The best ways to choose a bridesmaid bouquet

Flowers are an important part of any wedding day, whether it is the bouquet that you the bride is holding, or the bouquets that your bridesmaids hold during the special day too.

Want to know more about how to choose the right bridesmaid bouquet so that your ladies look as beautiful as possible on your big day?

Read on for some of our top tips on how to choose a bridesmaid bouquet.

It doesn’t always have to be a bouquet

One of the first things to think about is the fact that your bridesmaids don’t have to hold a bouquet if you don’t think that this is the right option for them.

A single flower looks beautiful as an alternative (especially if you opt for a large and bold flower) not only this, but corsages are also a great option too as these free up their hands throughout the day too.

Do they have to match the bride’s flowers?

This is a commonly asked question when it comes to buying bridesmaids bouquets.

The good news is that bridesmaids’ flowers don’t have to match the bride’s flowers.

Of course, it works really well if you have your bridesmaids carrying smaller versions of your bouquet, but that doesn’t mean that this the only option open to you.

You can have your bridesmaids carry completely different flowers to you and you can even have them carry bouquets that different to one another.

It really does depend on the look and theme that you are looking to create for your wedding.

Think about what they are wearing

If you have decided to dress your bridesmaids in something that is a little on the slinky side, then the last thing that you are going to want is to have a massive bouquet swamping them.

Equally, if they have a dress that comes with lots of detail, then you don’t want something that is going to detract away from the dresses.

When you are choosing bridesmaid flowers you need to make sure that you consider the style of the dress that they are wearing and try to complement this as much as possible.

You also need to consider the colour too, as this will impact on the colour of the dresses that you pick.

If you have opted for a green shade, then you need to make sure that you don’t have too much green foliage in your flowers as this is never going to show up on your photos.

As you can see, there are plenty of things to think about when it comes to choosing flowers for your bridesmaids.

So, make sure that you think carefully about what they are going to carry and you will not only have happy bridesmaids, but also bridesmaids that look amazing too!
