Just 20 years ago, all the weddings were similar to one another, dresses for brides were not very diverse, and nobody even thought about accessories. The situation is quite different when preparing modern weddings. The number of wedding dresses and their styles is so huge that any – even the most demanding bride can find the proper one for her. A place for a wedding is also not limited to a cafe or a restaurant, and accessories, details and floristics occupy almost the main place in the celebration, because they emphasize the main idea of ​​the wedding day.

White bridal bouquet

This is perhaps the most popular option, because the white bouquet symbolizes the beauty and the purity of the bride as well as the purity of the relationship of the couple entering into marriage. Moreover, white is the color that is ideal for almost any wedding dress. The traditional option – roses of different sizes, which can be in perfect harmony with these flowers in the bride’s hair. Indeed, a royal version is the lily, which will not leave anyone indifferent. Callas will be perfect for those who have a sophisticated taste. They perfectly match the dress of a slender silhouette or a light and even careless bridal image. If you are preparing a wedding in the spring or in a rustic or boho style, lilies of the valley would be an excellent option. They look light and airy, and by adding them with ribbon or string due to your wedding style, you will get a unique bouquet that best complements you.

Red bridal bouquet

Red is not just the color of love and passion. Not every bride dares to choose it for her image. To create a red bouquet, roses are most often chosen, they are truly royal flowers. You can also use gerberas. Despite its fairly simple appearance, they look bright in the photos. Tulips (especially closed buds) are perfect for a young bride. Of course, we cannot ignore the peonies, which look rich and symbolize good luck. Callas look unusual and exotic, and even red callas will not leave indifferent any of the guests!

However, mono-bouquets, which are made of one type of flowers and one color, do not suit everyone, so even a red bouquet can be diluted with small white flowers, which will become the backdrop for the primary colors, and the contrast will make the red bouquet even brighter.

Blue bridal bouquet


Blue, on the one hand, is the color of mysteries and secrets, and on the other hand, it is the color of devotion, loyalty and faithful love. To create a bouquet in blue colors, you can use roses – it looks elegant, and if you add more simple and small pastel-coloured flowers or even add berries and twigs, it will be unusual for brides with fantasy.

The undoubted front-runner when choosing flowers in blue is hydrangea. Its advantages are longevity, the absence of a strong smell, the ability to buy a plant from June to October, as well as the refinement of the bouquet, which after all will suit better young brides. Orchids are one of the symbols of the Dominican Republic, which means that a rare holiday goes without them. Orchids are a symbol of happiness and family wealth. A bride who chooses these flowers for her bouquet pretends to be unique and unusual.

Pink bridal bouquet


This is a classic color to create an image of a gentle and dreamy bride. Varying flowers in a bouquet, you can make it naively romantic or regal and rich. In this case, the most popular choice are roses, thanks to which you can create an elegant and at the same time majestic bridal bouquet. An excellent alternative to roses are peonies. A bouquet of peonies looks massive and fine, and if you combine flowers of different shades of color and sizes in the composition, you will get a stylish option for a modern bride.

Therefore, the bridal bouquet only seems to be a simple accessory, but in fact, its choosing requires a thoughtful approach from the bride, because the bouquet, besides the bride and groom, will take centre stage in your wedding photos.
