15 Bridal Bouquet Ideas
With summer over and fall being upon us most brides who are getting married soon, or even next year are in full wedding planning mode! Florists and Wedding Planners are likely asking their brides to provide images and planning inspiration for their wedding flowers.
I absolutely adore bouquets. Flowers are one of the main components of a wedding day that truly bring out your theme and personality. They are absolutely one of my favorite things to photograph, as they also play such an integral part in complimenting a bride’s style on her big day!
You might feel a little stuck or stumped about where to start. First, I suggest you take a look at the season in which you are getting married. First of all, certain flowers like peonies for example, are quite popular, but have a short season in spring and early summer. They may be difficult, or even impossible to get a hold of in the winter months if you live in Canada for example. Also, consider your style and colors. What sort of mood or feeling do you want to portray? Do you want to highlight the region in which you live or perhaps there is a flower that is important to your heritage and needs to be imported from another country. All of these components contribute to the cost (or savings!) of your wedding flowers in general.
I encourage brides to get creative and think about different embellishments they can add to their bouquet, as well as the shape and size. Popular this season (and next) are large, lush, flowing bouquets that drape down the dress and add romance.
As Calgary wedding photographers, we’ve seen a lot of bouquets. I’ve compiled a list of 15 different bouquets (in different seasons of course!) I hope they provide you with inspiration and help you in your planning journey. If you have any additional recommendations or questions about the flowers in these photos, please feel free to email me at: [email protected] and I would love to help you out!
