Springtime. One of my favorite seasons is here, where color comes back into our lives. I am also happy when a bride is not afraid to add a bit of color to her personal flowers on her wedding day. It adds richness to the environment and not to mention is really beautiful to look at.
Here are a few tips when picking colorful, personal flowers:
– Chat with your florist/designer about what is season, not only is it a bit more budget friendly buying a flower that is in season, but you will have more variety to choose from.
– Choose greens and fillers that create some interest and texture. It’s those little bright pops of color that create interesting moments in your bouquet.
– Mix up your colors! You might be surprised how bright lush colors can coordinate with each other. Be bold and try different and interesting color combinations that excite you.
– Pick a fun “wrap” for the handle of your personal flowers. It can be a bright colored textured ribbon or maybe it’s a piece of left over fabric from one of your bridesmaids dress. This finishes the look of any personal bouquet. This is also a fun area to add mementos, maybe a charm with your grandparent’s pictures or the silk buttons from your great grandmother’s dress.
