The bridal bouquet is a very important part of any bride’s ensemble for her wedding day. The size, flowers, materials, color possibilities are endless. Here are some stunning examples from recent Equinox Photography brides:
- A fun assortment of pins, brooches and even rings attached to a basic white silk flower bouquet
Bridal White. Simple roses or fun with feathers!
Rich, warm colors. Great for summer and fall weddings.
Fresh pastels and brights for spring and early summer.
Dramatic, bold colors with cascading elements.
Size and shape are factors that are just as important as color and flower type. If you have a full, heavily detailed dress with a long train, a medium to large bouquet would look best–it’s all about scale. If you are wearing a simple, train-less slip of a dress, a small to medium bouquet would be perfect. Be sure not to go too big–all the wonderful details of your dress will be hidden by all those flowers! And not too small either–a tiny handful of flowers may not look, well “bridal” enough! Bridesmaids bouquets are usually smaller and can either be identical to the bride’s or totally different:
Jenny’s bridesmaids’ flowers were different from hers, but tied in nicely with the red/Christmas wedding theme.
