Each celebration requires flowers, so we can not imagine a wedding without the bride’s beautiful bouquet. The wedding bouquet is always a work of art and for some people flowers have a special meaning. But it for sure symbolizes love and family happiness, and it mirrors the bride’s soul. The wedding bouquet should match well with the bride’s wedding dress. Everything else is a matter of imagination.


In order to create the wedding bouquet, you could use any kinds of decorative elements – beads, feathers, ribbons, crystals, colorful tapes and so on. By choosing her wedding bouquet, the bride expresses her individuality, but it is really important that the bouquet is in contrast with the wedding dress, it shouldn’t merge with it. That is why the bouquet should be a few tones darker than your dress (or lighter if it is dark-colored).


What kind of flowers should the wedding bouquet contain? Most often are used roses for the wedding bouquets and they are probably the perfect option. The advantage of the roses is that they give us a wide color variety and they stay fresh for a long time, they are also not very expensive. Except the roses, the flower-de-luce deserves our attention. In Europe they symbolize purity. The lilies look amazing in a bouquet and they smell really nice. But they have a serious disadvantage – they are really delicate flowers and their freshness lasts too short which makes them darker and takes away their beauty. The calla lily is also a good choice for a wedding bouquet. It is also associated with innocence and purity and it easily appeals to every bride. A wide-spread claim is that the orchids are the perfect flowers for a wedding bouquet. That is because of their tropical and exotic beauty.


How many flowers should be in the bouquet? Some people want to show their richness by the wedding bouquet and make it very heavy and volumetric. It is known that beauty requires sacrifices, but after all, these sacrifices should not be beyond the realm of rationality.
