Which Wedding Bouquet Matches Your Personality?
You are unlike any bride who has ever walked the aisle. So why should your wedding bouquet be any different? After all, the arrangement is ultimately an accessory for your bridal look, and as such, it should reflect your personal style—and your wedding's theme. Here, fun ways to incorporate your unique characteristics into your clutch!
Trends come and go: It's the timeless classics you crave. Perhaps you're determined to re-create your grandmother's or mother's bridal bouquet (or sneak in a "something old" or "something blue" by way of a ribbon or swatch of fabric). Or you just want to ensure that it never goes out of style. Opt for a symmetrical, controlled clutch of roses, maybe even a monochromatic arrangement like this perfect white rose creation by Santa Barbara Style.
Today's more modern brides may want to carry a clutch filled with fresh and interesting florals. Enter asymmetrical arrangements that incorporate bold ideas like colorblocking or tying with a graphic ribbon. You could also also incorporate unexpected elements like fruits and veggies, succulents, or protea for added interest. This one by Sinclair & Moore is a mix of garden roses, tea roses, poppies, kumquats, tangerines, Meyer lemons, ranunculus, phalaenopsis orchids, peonies, blackberries, climatic, and sweet peas. (Say that five times fast!)
Whether you're planning a rustic wedding or just have a deep connection with the great outdoors, consider incorporating natural, textural blooms and fabrics into your bridal bouquet. There might even be something that grows organically at your venue that you could use. We're particularly fond of working wheat, grass, branches, or greenery in with earthy-hued flowers, like this combination of golden wild grasses and bay leaves with peonies and heirloom garden roses by Flower Wild.
You're a Free Spirit
Free-spirited brides tend to gravitate toward wild, bohemian arrangements, complete with cascading ribbons or greenery. But there's just no predicting the preferences of this personality type. Maybe you'll mix big, bold blooms with pretty, petite ones, like Moon Canyon did with this bouquet of roses, amaryllis, ranunculus, and fritillaria. Or maybe you'll skip the bouquet altogether and opt for a floral crown.
You're a Romantic
You've dreamed of your wedding day ever since you were a little girl—or ever since you fell in love—and you envision a celebration filled with sweet, sentimental, details. Seek out soft, lush blooms like peonies and ranunculus in muted, serene colors that call to mind a favorite fairy tale. Stonekelly Events designed this dreamy clutch of white and "Pillow Talk" peonies, garden roses, veronica, lady's mantle, scabiosa, and peppermint geraniums.
You're Laid Back
With an appreciation for multiple floral styles, you don't have your heart set on any particular petals, shapes, sizes, or shades. Plus, you trust your florist to create something spectacular and seasonal—without your input. A laid-back bride like you might even tell her floral designer to use whatever looks most beautiful at the flower market on the wedding day. That's what this bride did—and her florist, Peartree Flowers, followed through with a lush arrangement of mostly pink and red blooms, including ranunculus, roses, lisianthus, astilbe, and peonies.
