When you finally settle on your dream Venus Bridal Gown, it’s a wonderful feeling – knowing what you’re going to be wearing on your big day can really make it feel like everything is falling into place with your wedding plans – it’s very exciting! Of course your next job is deciding how you’ll accessorise that dreamy dress. Perhaps you’ve already got ideas that tie in with your overall wedding theme? Contemporary colour pops, vintage jewels, handmade adornments? Whatever the case, don’t forget to give some thought to your bouquet too!
The perfect bouquet should complement your wedding dress and tie in with your wedding style as a whole. If you’re in need of inspiration, read on!
If you’re opting for a traditional style bridal gown, it makes sense to go with a traditional style bouquet too. A bouquet that’s predominantly made up of white blooms can be effortlessly beautiful, and adding a few pops of colour and having your arrangement tied with coordinating ribbon is a perfect finishing touch.
If you’ve chosen a Venus lace wedding dress, you’re probably an old fashioned romantic at heart – nothing says romantic style like beautiful lace wedding dresses – and nothing goes better with lace wedding gowns than timeless, elegant roses. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box though, ask your florist about dying white roses to match your colour scheme – and don’t forget to order extras for your groom & his groomsmen to use as buttonholes!
If you’re getting married during the summer, you have so many choices when it comes to stunning seasonal blooms. If you’ve chosen a short bridal gown or a more informal wedding style, sunflowers can add a gorgeous splash of colour – why not team them with pretty posies of wildflowers to tie in with the colours of your bridesmaids’ dresses for a bohemian twist?
Pretty pastel tones are perfect for summer weddings, especially if you’ve chosen a very feminine wedding gown style. Gerberas, peonies and anemones all come in perfect sugary shades – if your bridesmaids are wearing different colours, you could even go with a colour block style posy to match each gown, and then combine all the colours together in your own perfectly pastel bouquet.
Something Completely Different
Of course you don’t have to have fresh flowers in your bouquet at all. Many modern brides are opting fir arrangements of artificial flowers, made with either fabric or paper, button bouquets, even sparkling arrangements put together with vintage brooches and gems. Use your imagination and come up with something that’s a perfect match for your own unique wedding style.
If you’re still just not sure what sort of bouquet you’d like, or you’re clueless about flowers and what goes with what, try to pin yourself down to a colour palette first then ask your florist for advice – they’ll most likely have lots of great ideas to inspire you. And once you’ve picked out the perfect bouquet to complement your perfect Venus wedding dress, you’ll be another step closer to ticking off everything on your wedding to do list!
