Perfect Pairings—Tips to match bouquets to different wedding dress styles

A bouquet that matches your wedding dress would make a beautiful match m, just like you and your partner!

The bridal bouquet is one of the most important accessories for your wedding day. Finding the right bouquet that compliments your wedding dress will help you nail your wedding day look. Just like wedding dresses, you have a stunning variety of bouquet choices, and this is the easy thing. Wedding flowers come in all sizes, shapes, colors and price ranges. So, it isn’t difficult to fashion the perfect bouquet for your budget, taste and wedding theme. The not-so-good news is that there are so many ways in which you can do this, that it can sometimes leave you confused.

Fortunately, we are here to help you with some tips that will help you match your wedding bouquet choice to that of your wedding dress.

Where do you begin?

Not all brides know much about flowers, and it is in fact pretty common to find brides who don’t know one flower from another. Although your florist will be able to help you to a great extent, we think it would be a good idea if you knew some of the basics about choosing flowers for your wedding bouquets. We suggest that you take a look at this previous post to get a general idea of the different shapes in which wedding bouquets are available, so you know your options.

On your wedding day, your bouquet will be one of your main accessories. This simply means that the bouquet should match or compliment your wedding dress. Unless this happens, your look will not come together, and may not create the impact you desire.

In order to match your bouquet to your wedding dress, here are some factors to keep in mind.

  • Both styles should match

Just like with wedding dresses, there are modern and traditional styles for bouquets too. For example, round bouquets and nosegays are traditional shapes while hand-tied bouquets and arm sheaf bouquets are contemporary styles. Take a look at this article on the Perfect Wedding Day blog for a detailed account of the different types and designs in wedding bouquets. For best results, your bouquet style would match your wedding dress style. So, if your dress is traditional or classic, it would look best with a traditional bouquet.

  • Strike the right balance

Balance is key to getting the look right with all your wedding accessories. If you pair an elaborately embellished wedding gown with equally detailed accessories, the details will drown in the chaos. The result will be a cluttered look. So, aim for a balance where your dress and accessories contribute to a cohesive look. For an opulent wedding dress, choose a simple bouquet while you can go with an elaborate one with many details, for a minimalist gown or simple silhouette.

  • Pay attention to shape and size of your bouquet

Just like you try to find a gown that matches your natural proportions, you should find a bouquet that doesn’t overwhelm you or look too tiny on you. Choose the shape and size in such a way that it matches your built, and doesn’t look out-of-place. The shape of the bouquet is also relevant in highlighting your natural features and the dress details that you want to draw attention to. For example, if your dress features a narrow waist, choose a bouquet that is narrower than your waist, so it doesn’t crowd this area. Similarly, a cascading bouquet with several details in the lower half may hide the details on your skirt.

  • Pay attention to the exact color of your dress

By the time you are done with wedding dress shopping, you will have realized that wedding dresses come in different shades of white. The effect of your bouquet will differ, depending on the shade of white in your dress. This is specially important if the flowers are light in color, as it can look washed out, intense or shabby, depending on the white background. Your florist will be able to help you choose the best colors that work with your dress. To make this happen, collect a swatch of fabric from your gown so she plan accordingly.

  • Match it to your overall theme

Your bouquet should reflect your wedding theme and the colors in it. So, find a design and flowers that add to the overall effect. Matching your bouquet to the wedding color palette actually opens up your options and gives you more room to make adjustments that fit your choice and budget. You can use flowers that are in the centerpieces and floral décor, in your bouquet too, so it comes together beautifully. Also, make sure that your bouquet goes well with that of your bridesmaids, so your photos are all picture-perfect.

  • Little details that match it to your overall look will make it extra-special

There are numerous ways in which you can match the tiny details in your look to your bouquet choice. One of the options is to consider the jewelry you will be wearing. Jewelry has a great impact on your total look, and so it should be complemented by the flowers you choose. Keep the lines and effects similar, and it will integrate seamlessly. If you are using lots of sparkly jewelry, but the dress is relatively simple, you can create an elegant and sophisticated look by adding a sparkling accessory like a brooch to your bouquet.

Now that we’ve discussed the factors to keep in mind when choosing your bouquet, let us take a look at some suggestions for bouquet shapes for common wedding dress silhouettes. Remember that these are only suggestions. You may be able to find many more options, but this will give you a starting point. I hope you get the idea!

1.The sheath

The characteristic feature of this silhouette is its simple and slim style that simply drapes around the natural curves of the bride. The design resembles a column, with little to no extra added volume. It has a modern look, and is best complemented with few flowers with sophisticated looks and clean lines.

The casual look of this silhouette is beautifully complemented by simple bouquets that can be in any shape. You can choose from round, pageant or cascade bouquets depending on your height and the features on the dress.

2.A-line

Another non-fussy silhouette, the A-line is a universally flattering gown style. The amount of detail on this style should be your guide to choosing the right bouquet.

A-line

If the dress features ornate embellishments in the bodice, a simple bouquet with intense and dark colors should look good with it. If the dress is simple and has few embellishments, it is a good idea to dress it up with an intricately designed bouquet. Multicolored flowers of different shapes and sizes can add textural dimension to the overall look.

3.Mermaid

The mermaid dress is sexy and fits snugly around the natural curves of the bride wearing it. The silhouette is modern and stylish. So, this should be reflected in the bouquet choice as well.

Cascade bouquets, hand-tied ones and those embellished with modern, bold accessories would make good combinations with a mermaid gown. It is also a good idea to keep the size small and colors bright for maximum impact. Flowers like orchids would contribute to a sophisticated look with this silhouette.

4.Ball gowns

Ball gowns feature full, voluminous skirts with a very dressed-up look. Since these dresses add more volume to the natural figure, it is suggested to balance the look with an interesting but not overwhelming bouquet choice. Again, the embellishments on the gown can be used as a guide to choosing the bouquet design.

Round bouquets, pomanders and flowers in baskets, or cascade bouquets with volume at the top would look appropriate with this style of dress. A small bouquet would be drowned in the poufy skirt. So, this should be avoided.

5.Short hemlines

Wedding dresses for casual weddings sometimes feature short hemlines that end at any length above the ankles. The bouquets chosen for these dresses should also be fun and playful, just like the dresses that they accessorize.

Nosegay and posies are a good combination with these dresses.

Apart from the wedding dress silhouette, you should also pay attention to the wedding dress features when choosing your bouquet. This is because specific features in a dress can determine the overall look, and some bouquet styles match such dress features better than others. Let us take a look at some of them.

Lace

Lace wedding gowns are a timeless classic. Depending on the type of lace, the dress silhouette and motifs on the dress, lace dresses may be contemporary or classic. Nonetheless, lace is a signature vintage element, and it will always look good with a traditional bouquet. Soft round bouquets with plenty of greens peeping through are a great option. For an endearing touch, you can also consider wrapping the flower stems with a layer of lace, to further tie it to your wedding dress.

Dramatic back details

Wedding dresses with dramatic back details are all the rage now. From keyhole designs to low-cut backs and illusion details, there is plenty to choose from. The relevance of this detail is that this is usually a signature element in the bride’s overall look, and her choice of bouquet should address this feature. Back details in lace can be combined with traditional and classic bouquet designs. However, if the details are modern, like a low-cut style or cut-out design, it looks best when worn with a bouquet that is styled in a modern fashion. Exotic flowers and intense colors will bring out the sophistication of such a gown.

Strapless necklines

Wedding dresses with strapless necklines usually feature an embellished bodice, ruching in the neckline or a motif that draws attention to the upper part of the body. Strapless necklines are distinctly feminine, and look best with dainty floral bouquets with soft curves and lot of texture. Light colors like pastels and pink hues, as well as soft green ferns and foliage that add warmth to the flowers are a good choice with this style of dress.

strapless

Halter neck

Halter necklines, when chosen appropriately, are slimming and very sexy. The bare shoulders and exposed arms render an air of confidence to the bride who chooses this feature in her wedding dress. This type of dress draws the attention towards the neck and jaw. So, a bouquet that doesn’t divert focus from this feature is the best combination for it.

Flowers in intense single colors or those that blend with the dress color and have soft trailing leaves in cascade formation are a good choice. Since the bouquet isn’t too dramatic, it will serve as an accessory that complements but doesn’t distract from the main features of this dress style.

Sheer wedding dresses

When the wedding dress has an almost translucent effect, it is a signature factor in itself. Since these dresses look lucid and dreamy, while also having a sexy side, a bouquet that is solid and sophisticated would enhance the effect. Choose dark, bold colors and a simple and small formation, so it stands out but adds to the impact of the gown.

Choosing your wedding bouquet may be a daunting task, as the options are endless. Check with your florist for suggestions. As a talented professional who knows her way around flowers, she will be a great guide to helping you find the look you want, and from the options that you can afford. Also, don’t forget to create your own inspiration board just for the floral aspects, so you know what your choices are.

10 things your wedding doesn’t really need

Weddings are expensive affairs, and it is not worthwhile to spend money on the so-called “must-haves,” which end up being not so essential after all. It is quite commonplace to get caught in a rush, and ticking things off your list as quickly as is possible, when planning your wedding. In all this hurry, you may easily overlook what is actually necessary and what can be done without.

So, we suggest you take a break from all that wedding planning for a bit, and actually look at that long list you have. A few minutes is all it will take to analyze whether you need to do everything that is in there, but definitely do this. This well-spent time will help your budget go further.

We have some tips from our wedding planning experts, who have seen enough weddings to precisely tell us what we can do away with, and still have a fantastic wedding day. So, in no particular order, here is the list!

Save-the-date cards

spotted save-the-date

Save-the-date cards are just another expensive piece of stationery, that you can do without. This is very true if you have a short engagement. Your wedding invitation, on the other hand, is a must-have! Almost everyone has an email or social media account these days. So, just send out an email once you finalize your wedding date, and that should be enough for everyone to mark their calendars. In case there are those who don’t operate online, you can inform them with a personal letter or phone call. Or, if there is little time left till the wedding, just send the invitation as soon as is possible. When you think of the postage and printing charges for a bunch of save-the-dates, don’t you think it is worth spending that money on something else?

Guest books

wishing well

Your guest book may not cost you a significant amount, but when planning your wedding, every bit counts. It will, in the end, just be a book that will be stashed away and hardly remembered. How many of your guests will do much more than just sign their names into it, and what purpose does that really serve anyway? Now if you were opting for a guest book alternative, like a wish well or a wish box, it would be nicer. You could use this in your new home as a wall or mantel display. This will certainly be more enjoyable than a guest book that will be put away with the rest of the wedding stuff you may never touch again.

A fancy cake-cutting set

When you spend a huge amount on a designer wedding cake, do you think it is necessary to get a fancy cutting set to do the honors? This is an item with a one-time use, but it can be pretty expensive. What is more, your caterer may even have one that you can borrow. Or it may be available at the venue, if the place hosts weddings regularly. So, check this option out before you go shopping. Or, you can just ask family and friends. If any of your friends have bought a brand new set for their wedding, they may lend it to you for your cake-cutting ceremony.

A big bridal party

There is no right or wrong number of members in your bridal party. If you have plenty of friends and relatives who must be beside you when you say “I do”, so be it. Otherwise, keep the numbers small, and many, including you will be relieved. It is expensive for you as well as your bridesmaids, when they are in a wedding party. The bridesmaids will have to put aside a considerable amount for their dresses, accessories, hair, makeup and the wedding gift. Similarly, the couple will also feel obliged to buy special wedding party gifts and share some of the bridal party expenses. Instead of all this, if you keep your wedding party small and include just those who are essential, you save everyone a lot of trouble. Not only do the potential bridesmaids candidates just have to worry about getting you one wedding gift, you can also skip the extras like expensive wedding party gifts. And lesser the number of women, lesser the drama! Have a Maid of Honor and a bridesmaid, or even two Co-maids of honor and you should be good to go.

Too many details

flowers-1203699_640

An elaborate centerpiece with hundreds of intricate details works just as good as a budget-friendly simple and stylish smaller centerpiece. Similarly, party favors wrapped in cellophane, and then packed into a custom bag and topped with a fancy ribbon will do not different than one packed into a small box. And we don’t even have to get started on how expensive and unnecessary fancy linen is. When there are too many details in a wedding, it loses its charm. Your guests will simply get lost in the several things that they may not remember most of it at the end of the day. So, focus on creating only a few signature elements that stand out from the rest. Stay away from the smaller details that don’t contribute to the bigger picture, and you will save yourself a lot of stress. Instead, devote attention to making your wedding day fun and enjoyable, as that is what will be most memorable.

A band

an-pierle-876094_640

Let’s face it, a band is very expensive. So, unless you are very particular you must have a group of performing artists at your wedding, skip it altogether. A DJ with a play list of songs that will entertain the guests at your party, can make your party just as interesting. Perhaps even more, if you find the right person. Also, it will mean a lot less to co-ordinate. Or, if you can manage a good quality sound system, you can create your own list of songs on a CD and have it played at the wedding.

A registry

coupon-421600_640

If you know exactly what you want in your new home, or you are particular about not keeping anything more than you actually need, a wedding registry may be a good idea. However, if you aren’t really sure of what you should have, or what you will find useful in future, skip the registry altogether. Trust me on this, creating a registry when you are unsure of things will only confuse you more. You already have so much going on for your wedding, and planning the registry is one tiring detail that you don’t have to add to it. Not having a registry will give your guests the flexibility to figure out something they think will be useful. Don’t you think the surprise of opening up each gift and discovering what they’ve chosen for you will be real fun? And, if you get lucky, your guests may even skip the idea of getting you a gift and give you cash or gift vouchers instead. That doesn’t sound so bad, does it now?

The latest designer wedding gown

Walking down the aisle as a beautiful vision of white is possible, even if you don’t spend a chunk on a brand new designer wedding gown. There are so many economical options that can still help you realize this dream. Choose a gown from the previous season’s collections, and you may get it at a discount. Or visit the clearance sale section of your wedding shop, to find what captures your fancy. You could even rent your gown or buy one second-hand, and nobody has to know. After all, it is a one-time occasion, and not a dress you have to wear everyday. If you can get what you want for a fraction of the cost of buying a fresh off-the-runway, designer wedding gown, you must be really smart and practical! Don’t worry about compromising on style or look, when you opt for this route. Check out our special offers page on Best for Bride for some fantastic offers that will definitely transform you into the beautiful bride you always dreamed of being, but without the hefty price tag attached to it.

Wedding programs

program

Another piece of stationery that you can easily skip are wedding programs. It is common practice to hand out wedding programs before the start of the ceremony, and the paper that goes into making it is usually not cheap. However, have you ever noticed where these programs end up after the ceremony? In the trash, of course. So, why should you spend a fortune on getting them printed if they serve no real purpose? I like this idea on The Every Last Detail blog, to use a large signage instead, noting the key participants in the ceremony and order of events. Not only will this detail have a huge visual impact, it can be done at a fraction of the cost of printing hundreds of wedding programs. Also, it serves the main purpose of providing the information that your guests actually need, and in a no-fuss, but classy way.

Personalized wedding favors

favors

Cute little trinkets, personalized tins, glasses and photo coasters may all be very attractive, but how many of them will actually serve any purpose for your guests? While you may have to spend a fortune on your wedding favors and pay extra for custom details like adding a photograph or message, will it ever be used or even saved for later? The best favors that wedding guests actually use are edible ones. So, if you must have a wedding favor that will please everyone, consider cookies, candy, preserves or chocolates. You can personalize these with a photo wrapper or printed message wrapper, if you want that personal touch in there. If you don’t think this is good enough, the next best options are candle holders and potted plants, that can be established into any home easily. Not all your guests may appreciate displaying photo favors with your picture, so save yourself your hard-earned cash and stick with what will actually be useful for them.

A towering tiered cake

wedding-cake-975344_640

Earlier we mentioned that you do not need a fancy cake cutting set, to cut your designer cake. Now we tell you that you do not even need a fancy towering cake to impress your guests. You can do the same with a smaller couture cake, that will be just as spectacular, sans the size. Firstly, this means you can have a gourmet cake done with excellent details, just for the cake cutting ceremony. Sheet cakes done in the same flavor can be served to the guests at their tables. Not only does this minimize wastage, there are no compromises on style either. Or, if you are feeling bold enough, skip the cake altogether and choose an alternate dessert. For options, check out this previous post.

A weekend wedding

wedding-322034_640

Sure, you want everyone to be at your wedding! But, if a weekday ceremony saves you a tonne of cash or helps you get your dream venue which is booked for all weekends, so be it. This article on the Huff Post tells us that guests who want to be at your wedding won’t really mind taking a day off work for it. If you plan the event on a Friday, it would also help them kick-start a long weekend. Nobody will be complaining, I am sure!

When you want your pet to be at your wedding

pets at weddings

Many of our families often include feathery or four-legged furry friends too. So, isn’t it only right that they are also included in our wedding day? After all, this is usually the most special occasion of our lifetime, and wouldn’t it be incomplete without these adorable little members

Although you can easily accommodate your pets into your wedding plans, how you do it would depend on several factors. The extent of involvement would also affect the preparations and plans. Whether you want them there as honorable guests, or in a more active role (I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen dogs play the role of adorable ring-bearers and groomsmen!) is up to you. But, before you do, here are some things to consider.

1.Does your venue allow pets?

Not all venues admit pets. So, this is an important factor to consider, if you must have your pet in your wedding. Check with the venue if it is an important factor, before booking it or paying the deposit, so you needn’t be disappointed later. If the venue you like doesn’t allow pets, either look at other venues, or think of whether you would rather include them in the wedding without them actually being there. More on that later!

2.Will your pet be comfortable in the setting?

Not all pets are calm, well-trained and happy in crowds. So, think about this factor. If your pet is always well-behaved, irrespective of the setting he is in, you may have no trouble giving him an important role in your wedding. If he is boisterous fellow who is easily excited or aggressive in crowded places, or becomes unhappy and withdrawn around loud music or children, you may like to have him participate as an onlooker. Since you will have a busy time on your wedding day, and may not be able to stay with him if he becomes uncomfortable, make sure you hire a pet-sitter or have a family member take care of him.

3.Think of the comfort and safety of both your pet and your guests

Your pet may be uncomfortable in certain settings. Unless your pet is used to crowds before, or has been in a similar setting previously, you really cannot predict how he will behave on your wedding day. Or it could be that you have wedding guests who are intimidated by animals. So, it is always recommended to prepare for any likely situation. Make sure your pet is well-cared for and nobody gets an opportunity to tease or taunt it and frustrate it. Also, let your guests know in advance about your pet’s participation, so they can plan accordingly. Putting a note about it on your wedding website, should be enough. In the best interests of both parties, it is wise to keep your animal on a leash on the day, so you can avoid any untoward accidents.

4.How will you care for him

Like we said earlier, you will have a lot going on, and it is simply impractical to tend to your pet during the chaos. So, you should make arrangements for his care during the day. Hiring a pet-sitter is the best option. This person can stay close to him throughout the day, make sure he gets his food on time, is kept away from guests, take care of his toilet needs and take him home when it is time. It is a good idea to hire this person early, so your pet gets used to him or her and is comfortable in time for your wedding day.

5.Make sure there isn’t anything that disturbs your pet

Some flowers are toxic to animals, and without you around to supervise, the risk of your animal coming in contact with it or ingesting it is higher. Keep it safe by avoiding such flowers and ingredients in your décor and menu, so your beloved pet isn’t in trouble. Similarly, make sure that he is kept away from loud noise that can hurt his ears, or from the dessert tray that he may try to stick his paws in! On a similar note, if you plan to dress your pet in a special wedding outfit, make sure it is comfortable for him. If he isn’t happy with the idea of wearing it, outfit him in a smaller accessory like an ornate collar or bow tie instead.

6.Be flexible

You cannot always predict how your pet will behave in the given situation. So, be prepared for it if he decides to ditch your plans. Even if you have planned an important role for your pet, like that of the ring bearer, make sure that you have a Plan B, in case he isn’t up for it at the crucial moment. Don’t be disappointed, rather consider yourself lucky if he obliges with your wishes and gets that far without any issues.

Now, once you have taken care of the above mentioned factors, let us move on to the different ways in which you can include your furry friend in your wedding.

Ring bearer

The most popular, yet one of the most difficult to implement. If your pet is an obedient, charming fellow who won’t be affected by the change in scenery, and obeys instructions, you can honor him with the role of ring bearer. However, don’t risk any chances by giving him the actual ring. As this article on the Huff Post mentions, it is better that the best man hold the real ring, but your pet carry a faux ring down the aisle, just for the effect. Make sure you get him to practice walking down the aisle with the ring, several times before the actual day, so he isn’t flustered when it is time.

Groomsman or bridesmaid

An extra groomsman is hardly ever a problem, and in fact, it is the perfect role that allows your pet to share the stage with you. Designate a spot for him with the rest of the groomsmen, preferably towards the end of the line, where he can hang out and see the ceremony. If your furry friend is a female, you can have her join the bridesmaids line. Dress up your pet in a tux or skirt, only if he or she is comfortable in the outfit. Otherwise, it is best to add an accessory that doesn’t overwhelm the animal.

Photographs

One of the safest options for your pets to be in the wedding, is to join in your photography session. Outdoor shots with pets are the best, as they usually relax and this allows for great pictures. Make sure your photographer knows that you will have your pet in the photo session, so he can plan the shots accordingly. You can take portrait pictures with your pet, have him in the background, or carrying props like a “just married” sign. In case of unexpected rain or glitches like a muddy outdoor area, analyze whether it is wise to spoil your white wedding dress while posing in the outdoors. You will eventually have to spend more time if you are to get the perfect pictures, when you are posing with your pet.

Cake topper

If your venue doesn’t allow pets, but you still want your beloved friend to be part of the celebration, dedicate the cake topper to him. You can either choose to have one specifically created to resemble your pet, or go for an easily available crystal or glittering topper design in an animal shape.

Display a portrait

If he cannot be there in person, you can have him there in spirit. Blow up a stunning portrait of your pet, and add it to a central location at your venue. Nobody will be complaining about how you forgot him, when you do this. Or, you could even add a family portrait, with the three of you in it. If you want to take it further, create a picture backdrop featuring him, and take your pictures taken there. It will serve as a good-looking keepsake for later.

Pet-stamped stationery

Custom-created photo place cards, table settings or signage can be used to bring your pet’s presence into your wedding, even when he isn’t physically there. The alternative is to use printed stationery with animal silhouettes for an equally striking effect. If you are all into your pet, you can even have him included in the pictures on your save-the-date cards or invitation.

Wedding favors

This is great way to give a little special attention to your pet, and you have so many different options to do it well. Have animal-shaped cookies or candies as edible treats. Animal print or photo key chains are other ideas. Or you can customize the thank you labels with the image of your pet, and tie it to the favors. Another option is to have custom photo wrappers for milk chocolates, with your pet’s picture on the cover.

How to train your pet for your wedding day

It goes without saying that you will need to prepare your pet in advance, for his role at your wedding. This is even more important if he has an active role at the wedding. Unless you practice ahead of time, he may shock you with an unpleasant surprise at the time, and you really do not need any more stress to handle on this day!

Here are some tips to help you prepare your furry or feathery friend for your wedding day.

1.Start training early

Rather than wait for the last minute to get your pet in action, it is best to start training him from the time you decide he will be in your wedding. So, if you want him to simply accompany you down the aisle, sit still throughout the ceremony, or even pose with you for your photographs, make sure he receives the necessary training well in advance.

2.Practice, practice, practice

Continuous and consistent practice of what we said earlier is absolutely essential to minimizing hassles on the actual day. First practice alone, then with a few people, and finally with more people. Also try to ease him into the new environment by making him practice in an environment similar to your venue location.

3.Do it in steps

Take it one step at a time, and finally get your pet to learn his entire sequence. So, if he is the ring bearer, train him to walk down the aisle first. Then teach him to hold the basket in his mouth. After he has nailed both, slowly get him to combine the two, so you get the desired result. Similarly, if your pet has to stay on the stage for a long time, help him get used to it by practicing for smaller amounts of time initially, and then slowly increasing the duration to the required length.

4.Use treats to get things done

From when you train them, to the actual day, use treats to ensure they are tempted to do what is expected from them. You can start off with lining down the aisle with treats, or giving him treats for every time they do it right. Then reduce the frequency, so it is easy to manage and he still keeps at it.

Although it isn’t easy to get all pets to get it right, you can still try and see if it will work out. If he obliges, it will be another unique factor that will make your wedding extra-special. If it doesn’t, you still know that you tried, and that is certainly better than not making an attempt at all. In any case, be flexible and don’t be hard on your pet.
