Bridesmaid bouquets are an important accessory that ties in a bride’s vision during the ceremony.  Flowers in a wedding may have sentimental value or help express emotions.  Many brides are straying from tradition when it comes to incorporating flowers in their wedding.  This includes the bouquets for your bridal party. 

Shawna Reed, owner and designer for one of our favorite florists in town, Your Event Florist, updated us on the trends for bridesmaid bouquets.  “ While hand tied bouquets are still the most common, some trends include monochromatic floral bouquets for each bridesmaid.  For example, an all rose bouquet for one, all mini calla lilies for another or let’s say all roses but different colors for each bridesmaid.”

 This trend lends to not only a unique look in bouquets for your wedding, it is also a nice way to tie in emotion.  When choosing different flowers, take into consideration your bridesmaid’s personalities and design around them.  On the day of your wedding, you can include a card to give to each of your girls that describes their arrangement and why you chose it for them.  For example, beautiful gardenias symbolize joy.  In your card let your maid of honor know that is what she represents to you in your life and explain all the reasons why.
