It’s time for some color…

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.

Bright colors and seasonal flowers make this a fun "springtime" bouquet.  Tulips are great this time of year and there are so many to chooses from.  You can also never go wrong with roses.
