1. Make it Bigger!

Go big with a large arrangement overflowing with flowers

Many brides choose the make their bridal bouquet differ from their bridesmaids by going big! So if you really want your bouquet to stand out, we say go big! Opt for a large arrangement that is overflowing with flowers. This will definitely turn heads as you walk down the aisle and will make for some stunning photos. Just be sure not to go too overboard – you don’t want it to be so big that it gets in the way or becomes cumbersome to carry.

Choose a Different Flower Type

Another way to make your bridesmaids’ bouquets stand out is to choose a different type of flower than the ones you’ve chosen for your own bouquet.

For example, if your ladies will be carrying roses, try something like peonies or lilies for yourself. Or, if you’re set on roses, opt for a different colour than the ones they’ll be carrying. This will help you stand out from the pack while still complementing their arrangements.

Add an Accent

Add some personality to your bouquet with an accent.

This could be anything from a pretty ribbon wrapped around the stems to a brooch or even a feather! Get creative and use this opportunity to infuse some of your own style into your wedding day look.

Choosing your wedding flowers

the bridesmaids’ bouquets should complement but don’t have to be the same as the bride’s bouquet.

The bride and bridesmaid bouquets set the tone for the rest of the floral arrangements, and each of the bridesmaids’ bouquets should complement but don’t have to be the same as the bride’s bouquet. You will, however, want to make sure the florals coordinate well with the bridesmaids’ dresses and that each bouquet has its own unique flair.

Some brides prefer a very coordinated and matching bridal party look, while others are inspired by contrast and love the idea of their bridesmaids’ bouquets being very different, making their bridal bouquet totally unique.

Your wedding day is all about YOU – so why not make your bouquet reflect that? There’s no need to match your ladies; instead, use this opportunity to show off your own personal style. With these tips, you’re sure to have a one-of-a-kind arrangement that will wow your guests and makes for some beautiful photos.

If you’re having a more formal affair, go for a timeless and classic look; nothing says elegance like a beautiful white rose bouquet! Also, consider giving your ladies long-stemmed white roses. They’ll look elegant carrying them down the aisle, and you can’t go wrong with such a classic choice.

For something a little different

Try mixing different flowers together in one bouquet.

A combination of daisies, baby’s breath, and sunflowers make for a cheerful and colourful arrangement that is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Monochromatic bouquets are perfect for a modern, minimalistic wedding. Choose one type of flower in one colour and use it to create stunning bouquets with symmetry and balance.

And what could be more festive than a holiday-themed bouquet complete with evergreens, holly berries, and red ribbons? No matter what time of year you’re getting married, there’s an arrangement that will fit right in with your big day.
