Flowers for the day...
How to choose your flowers...
Choosing your wedding bouquet can often seem like a very difficult process but with some professional design assistance you will find your floral choices will fall gracefully into place.
The design, colour palette and style of your bridal gowns are an integral component to the overall design inspiration for your floral designs. The colour palette of your bridal party, their gowns and styling, enhance the floral theme and thus the floral designs should act as an accent to the gowns colours and style.
Before you embark on the process of choosing your wedding flowers it is important to have these decisions in place to allow the floral theme and the design process to commence. Each wedding is unique and individual and your personality and the inspiration of your wedding day will also enhance your wedding floral design choices.
Every bridal gown is quite individual, and certain bouquet styles will suit designs in various trends, the skirt line of your bridal gown and the detail and individual fabric of that design will impact heavily on your choices for wedding flowers.
Full-skirted dresses with hoops tend to suit a vintage posy, round, formal and elegant in design. The style of this posy replicates the line of your full skirt and accentuates the oval of the design. Creating a soft look it is feathery in texture and thick and full in roundness. A small posy best suits a bride smaller in stature, as it is petite in design.
Bodyline fitted gowns tend to suit cascading trail bouquets, or simple hand-tied informal posies. A trailing bouquet will make you seem taller, as the line of vision will flow from the bodice to the natural line of your body. Modern contemporary trail bouquets which are minimalist in design, yet long in construction, suits a gorgeous plunging neckline gown with a tight fitted skirt.
