Planning a wedding is HARD work! I feel you girl! Who do you ask to be your bridesmaid? And HOW do you ask?! Do you go with hair up, halfway up, down or braided? Pinterest doesn’t make it much easier on ya, amiright?!
One moment you’ve finally crafted your perfectly curated wedding board with the most beautiful blush, mauve and champagne color palette and the next thing you know you find yourself pinning some teal bridesmaids dresses that totally throws it all off! The struggle is real! Ok let’s be honest, it’s not quite the worst struggle in the world, but in the midst of planning a million details, you’re one decision away from throwing in the towel and eloping on the beach in a white sundress!
Well I’m hoping that this one small suggestion can be of some help!!
I’ve been to quite a few weddings over the years and one thing that I’ve come to realize over time is how your bridal bouquet can play such a HUGE role in the day! You might be confused how this is suppose to help your decision making process, but let me tell you a little secret…
Your bridal bouquet is in most every picture! SO even if you don’t have the biggest flower budget and aren’t in love with your choices for flowers, focusing on making your bridal bouquet the best can still make it look like your wedding flowers were amazing! All your portraits of you and your groom are accompanied by your trusty flower buddy for the day! Which means you can add such a beautiful pop of color or elegant touch to each photo even if there’s not much of a background to work with!
Not only is the bouquet in all your portraits, but it also is used as a backdrop for details at the beginning of the day! So that one bouquet can play a massive role in how your overall gallery and album looks!
So maybe instead of focusing on making sure all the bridesmaids have the perfect bouquet, you can make theirs more simple and allow that extra spending to go towards making yours stand out a bit more! Your ladies will TOTALLY understand and their bouquets will get photographed so much less than yours that day so you’ll never regret it!
Moral of this short story, is that the bouquet is a huge focal point for portraits, so if you need to prioritize the reception florals, bridesmaids florals and boutonnieres less to get your DREAM bouquet, girlfriend, go right ahead and do it! You won’t regret it!
