Can't decide which bridesmaid bouquet to choose?
Why not have your bridesmaids carry different bouquets?
If you're a creative type and are looking to distinguish your wedding from others, you may want to consider having your bridesmaids carry different bouquets.
Most brides opt to have matching bouquets and dresses in the same colors. But when it comes to your wedding, you get to do things your way.
Will it cost more to have your bridesmaids carry different bouquets?
It might. If your budget is tight, having to buy lots of different flowers that may not be used elsewhere in your wedding can add up. But, if you choose nice inexpensive flowers in the right colors it might work.
Most of my brides at Fly Me To The Moon Florists want a pretty uniform look among their bridesmaids. They may wear different dresses or shoes of the same color or tone. Their hair can be up or down. But almost always, the bridesmaids bouquets must match. But they don't have to.
7 Tips For Choosing Mismatched Bridesmaid Bouquets
1. Use bouquets of different flowers in a single color. I like this, because a single color unifies the look. Monochromatic bouquets are always beautiful especially if you use a lot of interesting textures. Not all flowers come in all colors though. So do your research before you select your color.
2. Try matching the shoes and bouquets. This works, because all of the women are wearing the same color. I absolutely love this whimsical idea. Even though a variety of flower colors are used, the matching shoes make it unique, but classic. If you look at this photo in 20 years, you won't be saying to yourself, "What the heck were they thinking?"
3. Use different color bouquets and dresses. In my opinion, this look is a bit harder to pull off, but not impossible. Though each bouquet needs to complement each dress, all the different dresses and bouquets need to go together.You want everything to look intentional and cohesive. Not like a big hodge podge of color, unless of course, that's the look you were going for.
4. Keep the color palette simple. Use one, two, but no more than 3 colors in the flowers and dresses. Using different shades of one or two colors can look quite sopisticated.
5. Keep bouquets small to medium in size. This will prevent any of the colors from being too overwhelming.
6. Select dresses in the same color, but in different styles.
7. Use only a few types of flowers and arrange them in different ways.
I love when brides get creative. My job is to keep it elegant and within the budget. I guess that's what makes floral design so interesting!
