Matching the Flowers to the Dress: A Fashion Do or Don’t?

Jun 20, 2011

Choose your favorite flowers

No bride wants to commit the ultimate “fashion don’t” on her wedding day. There’s a tradition for nearly everything in a wedding – but not many let you know how to match your flowers. Is it the dress, the arrangements, or the color of your eyes?!


Fashion Do – Try one of our favorite bridal bouquet ideas:

Personality – If you’re a traditionalist, try simple roses. You can also make the bouquet your ‘something blue!’ For a bold bride, a vibrant blue bouquet will stand out against a traditional wedding dress. For a subtler look, mix blue and white flowers in your bouquet and have the bridesmaids all hold alternating bouquets of individual colors to match!


Dress color – For a colored dress, choose either matching colors or complimentary colors for your bouquet. For a white traditional wedding dress, you can’t go wrong with white roses.


Wedding theme – A traditional bouquet of roses, lilies or orchids look lovely for a formal church wedding. Untraditional summer wedding themes let you get a little loose with your floral arrangements. Try an all baby’s breath arrangement, or a mix of wildflowers and colors for your outdoor wedding!


There’s really no such thing as a wrong choice for your wedding bouquet. An arrangement of your signature flowers can be the perfect choice! Just remember you’ll be tossing that bouquet at the end of the night!
