Classic and contemporary color combinations for amazing wedding bouquets

By on November 1, 2015

There are many splendid options in wedding flowers to choose for your wedding day. The main things to consider when choosing your wedding bouquets are

  • matching the colors to your wedding theme
  • matching the bouquet size and shape to your figure
  • matching the bouquet design to your wedding dress
  • finding the combination that falls within your budget

Apart from these factors, one main consideration is how talented your florist is. A capable florist is an artist who can churn out the finest designs with seasonal flowers and do all this for a reasonable budget. So, start with locating the right person for the task. Once you have found this person, share your ideas and listen to her suggestions. When you work together, you should be able to create a splendid bouquet that will greatly enhance your wedding day look.

Here are some fantastic color combinations that can never go wrong, and you can consider for your wedding day. Take a look.

Classic cream and white

Add the finishing touches to your white wedding outfit with a classic white bouquet. A monochromatic white bouquet is in no way boring, as you can always mix and match textures by choosing different types of flowers to make it interesting. A bouquet full of white roses, like the one that is featured in the Editor’s pick of prettiest wedding bouquets on BHG.com,  is a safe option that goes with any color palette, and is subtly dramatic.

The world of flowers has every shade of pink. So, if any of these shades work with your wedding palette, you needn’t worry about finding another suitable color for your wedding bouquet. Feminine and soothing, light pink works with almost any color theme, and you can mix it with greens, yellows, purples and whites to create spectacular bouquets. Consider having a stunning bouquet with just pink roses in winter, when the availability of flowers is limited.

Tropical yellows and red

Bigger blooms in yellow and pops of red make a striking combination that is cheerful and perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Add grassy shoots along the perimeter of the bouquet to accentuate the effect of the yellow. The best thing about this combination is that you can use it in a classic bouquet with yellow roses for a traditional look, or make it modern with lilies and orchids in this color. Add a unique touch to your bouquet by choosing berries instead of flowers for the red.

A combination of shades from the same palette

Just like ombre cakes are a favorite, bouquets with flowers that belong to the same color but in differing intensity will make a fabulous choice. You can have your florist create stunning bouquets in varying shades of purple, pink, red, orange or even blue using a variety of blooms in different sizes. Sprinkle green and white to add more dimension to your bouquet and it will be a spell-binding design.

We hope you have found at least one combination in this list to try on your wedding day. Visit Best for Bride to look at the various bouquet options that you can consider and find more inspiration for your wedding.

    Getting similar colors in different shades is a great way to add dimension to your bouquet without changing the colors completely.

    If you have a pastel dress, get a bold colored bouquet. The opposite is true if you have a bold color dress.
