How To Choose Your Bridal Bouquet from Bridal Musings

One of my favorite details of weddings or any event is FLOWERS! I've always loved flowers and have also made many floral arrangements for the styled shoots, bridal expos, and will be making some for a few upcoming weddings! I also love to go with you to any floral meetings with my preferred florists. This blog post by Bridal Musings has some great advice that I had to share. Plus I love to support fellow TWIPS  --Layla

Floral Musings: How To Choose Your Bridal Bouquet

  • "What flowers should you include in your bouquet? What colours/shapes work best with your dress? How big should your bouquet be? And how on Earth are you supposed to hold your bouquet?!
    To help answer those questions, I’m thrilled to welcome Emma of Emma Lappin Flowers to share her top tips on choosing and making the most of your bridal bouquet.
    Emma Lappin is a UK based floral designer specializing in chic, elegant and stylish flower arrangements for weddings and special events. I had the pleasure of meeting Emma at a photography workshop we attended last year, where I got the chance to see (and smell) her stunning designs first hand."
    "Top 10 Tips For Choosing & Making The Most Of Your Bridal Bouquet"
    1) "Try to choose your wedding dress before your flowers"
    "When you meet your florist for a consultation, remember to bring a picture of your dress. The design of your bouquet is completely dependent on the style, shape and detail of your dress. I think the key to bouquet design is that it doesn’t drown you, hide the silhouette of the dress or unbalance the line."
    2) "Consider the shape and size of your bouquet carefully"
    "Do not opt for a trailing bouquet if the feature detail of your dress is on the skirt, but if you have a long train or bustle at the back of your dress you might want to balance the look with a more dramatic bouquet. Do not hide your waist as this is likely to be your narrowest part, so make sure the bouquet is much narrower than your waist. Whilst bouquet fashions change overtime, the most important thing is that it works with your dress but doesn’t drown you or hide the beautiful details."
