In order to complete your overall perfect look for your wedding day, it’s important to make sure each component of your ensemble works well with one another. Many brides have a difficult time figuring out the style of bouquet that is going to work well with not only their wedding look, but their theme as well. But don’t worry, because we’re here to help! Here are some important tips…
Complement or Match
When it comes to picking out the accessories for your wedding day, you need to step back and make a decision. Are you going to match your accessories to your dress or find accessories that complement your look? It is important to decide this before finding your pieces so you don’t get yourself into a panic when it comes to completing your look.
If You Choose To Match…
If you’re going to choose to go the matching route, make sure your whites actually match. Many women forget that there are many of shades of white, and it is important that everything is the same color. White and ivory don’t mix well, please take note and remember this! If you’re wearing an ivory gown, it might not be a great choice to carry white calla lilies. Make sure you explore your options well before your wedding days and ask for opinions from your florist as well as close friends and family.
If You Choose To Complement…
Choosing to go the complementing route definitely gives you more wiggle room in terms of bouquet options. You can choose the colors of your accessories to match the theme of your wedding or just colors that you personally want to wear with your wedding dress. As long as the colors you choose don’t clash with your wedding color palette, the options are truly endless. For a clean and romantic look, consider an arrangement of various colors of flowers and choose from more than white fabric to wrap your bouquet in.
Most importantly, be sure your bouquet compliments your overall look and not JUST your dress. It is important to consider the type of jewelry you have picked out when choosing your bouquet. If you’re wearing jewelry that has lots of bling, it could be fun to add a little bling to your bouquet as well so it works well together. Or if you choose to wear an amazing pair of shoes that are a bright, bold color, maybe incorporate that color into your bouquet as well by wrapping it in a matching fabric.
The key is to keep in mind your wedding day ensemble as a whole and not just as the dress. We all know the dress is going to be the focal point, but there is a lot more than goes into the look than that! By selecting accessories and a bouquet that suits your dress and theme perfectly, you’ll totally nail your wedding look. Good luck and happy hunting!
