When you start thinking about your wedding flowers, most of the focus is on your bridal bouquet. But there’s another set of bouquets that you also need to think of – your bridesmaids bouquets. These flowers are an important part of your wedding ceremony because they honor each bridesmaid with her own individual flowers and they add to the overall beauty of the ceremony.
You can also use bridesmaid bouquets after the ceremony in a large arrangement or individually placed in key areas around the reception (like at the guestbook signing area.)
Though they usually mimic the style set by your bridal bouquet, you can find ways to make bridesmaids bouquets unique and special in their own right.
With thoughtful flower choices and other touches, you can give your bridesmaids unique bouquets that compliment your bridal bouquet, make your maids happy and add beauty to your wedding. Read on to discover tips and ideas on unique bridesmaid bouquets for your wedding.
Ideas for Unique Bridesmaid Bouquets
Much like the mindset for choosing bridesmaids dresses, the idea for bridesmaids bouquets is that all of the other wedding flowers should complement, not compete with the bridal bouquet.
But that doesn’t mean that bridesmaid bouquets have to be boring. There are lots of ways in which you can have unique bridesmaid bouquets that compliment your bridal bouquet and overall floral vision.
One of the best ways to make your bridesmaid bouquets unique is with color. You can have the bouquets be all of the same color, or you can give each bridesmaid a bouquet of a different color. You can also go with a monochromatic approach and have each bridesmaid carry a bouquet of a different shade of the same color.
Another option is to choose bridesmaid bouquets that contrast sharply with your bridal bouquet color. For example, if your bridal flowers were dark red, you could have each maid carry bright white flowers.
An additional way you can make your bridesmaids bouquets unique is by using the same color for each bouquet, but make it with different flowers. For example, you could have the bouquets made with roses, tulips, peonies, carnations and sweet peas all in the same shade of pink.
You can also incorporate other touches to make your bridesmaids bouquets unique. Distinctive ribbons tying each bouquet - think different patterns in the same shade like blue gingham, blue polka dots and blue stripes – can make bridesmaids bouquets different. You could also add a special charm on each bouquet.
Bridesmaid bouquets often mimic the shape and color of the bridal bouquet and are just in different form. Another way to make these bouquets individualized is to have bridesmaids carry pomanders, wear flower wreaths or carry mini bouquets in the same shape and color as your bridal bouquet.
