CAUTION. CONFIDENTIAL. DO NOT READ GROOMS, GROOMSMEN AND PEOPLE CALLED MATT… OK MAYBE JUST MATT!!!!
Howdy do Bride Vs Groom fans and welcome to another bridal boutique! A chance for us girls to spend some quality time at our computer screens and look at some seriously gorgeous, thoroughly enticing and OMG AMAZING girly prettiness. This weeks fabulous feature is bouquets and it’s all about the stunning colours, unusual designs and jaw-dropping styles! I love me some flowers and I’m excited to spend time looking at my favourite kinds of bouquets and to explore how they can set the style and vibe of your wedding day. I’m a big believer that the brides bouquet can really add another level to the dress and can cement the theme you have decided on. Whether it be a certain era, a quirky style or a carefully selected colour scheme, the right bouquet can make you feel a million dollars and help you to fall in love with your dress over and over again! From a wedding photographer’s point of view the bouquet is also a wonderful prop to pose with as Brides (unused to being at the centre of a photo-taking frenzy) always struggle most with where to put their hands. The bouquet can also make a stunning still life image and of course there’s that fabulous action shot as the bride throws the bouquet and the guests scramble to catch it!
So without further ado let us dive nose first into the aromatic fragrances and herbaceous decadence of the bridal bouquet….
Let us kick off with this multi-coloured delight!
I am loving the colours and the shape of this bouquet.
Oh boy this is one beautiful bouquet!
Stunningly shot by Amanda Hein, the creative team behind this were Hello Darling and the pastel colours are simply wonderful.
A bouquet I could imagine carrying all day with pride
My advice: give it to those clever florists…they will know exactly what to do!
Can’t get much more vibrant than this bright orange bouquet!
Shot by Scobey Photography against the deep blue dress the bouquet really does pop!
Well I was tricked!
This bouquet is actually made of silk flowers using the finest reproductions.
The vibrant poppies, succulents, ranunculus and blackberries make a perfect autumnal bouquet.
I adore the blog of kissthegroom.com and the stunning photography of Elizabeth Messina and this bouquet just made in fall in love all over again!
This unusual creation by udubonflowers.net features cotton and is such an original concept.
Would be a fabulous winter bouquet and stunning in photographs.
Or how about something not even with flowers?!
A new trend is to use brooches and gems; looks sparklingly good and you can keep forever as a memory of your day…cool eh?!
This creation was by lilybuds.com
Ooooooh I love these flowers, the berries, the pheasant feathers.. LUSH!!
Concluding the bouquets today we are going to finish with I think a pretty special one… (but then I love a good read!)
A bouquet of old books and fabric and made by one of the brides! Utterly genius!
To see the whole of this wedding then take a peek at rocknrollbride.com.
I promise it is worth a look.
