Flowers don’t last forever, but their beautiful images in the wedding photo albums can create lifelong memories of your walk down the aisle.
The first question to ask when planning your bouquet is: classic or contemporary?
The popularity of roses as a symbol of enduring love has not faded over the years. If you want to go this traditional route, consider carrying a rounded cluster of white or red roses to create an elegant picture for the wedding album.
A cascading bouquet has been a common accompaniment chosen by brides with long dresses that feature trains. This style contains a number of blossoms at the top that taper off like a waterfall and may also feature foliage or ribbons.
Another option is to carry a bouquet of long-stemmed calla lilies. With their clean lines, these flowers manage to look both classic and modern and may be equally suitable for outdoor and indoor nuptials.
In the past few years, an increasing number of brides have been drawn to sweet daisies or modest posies for their bouquets, particularly for a spring wedding. Wildflowers or bouquets with a variety of textures are also trendy at the moment.
Or, if you’re seeking a bolder statement for the wedding photo albums, consider carrying peonies or tulips – either a monochrome palette or in a couple of contrasting bright colors. And what could be more exotic than carrying a bouquet made of delicate orchids?
For a unique touch, you can add non-floral objects to your bouquet or forgo flowers altogether. If you want your wedding album to stand out from the crowd, consider carrying autumn leaves, tree boughs, pussy willows, silk flowers, a handful of ribbons or a lit candle.
