10 ways to transform your wedding bouquet from beautiful to absolutely fantastic

Flowers are a beautiful addition to any wedding. Every bloom and blossom has the power to add joy and color to the wedding scenery.

One of the best things about using fresh flowers in wedding bouquets, is that there is no way it can look bad. Unless the blooms you choose are past their prime and wilted, your bouquet will simply be pretty. Nevertheless, a few special touches can transform your bouquet from fine to fantastic. It doesn’t take too much effort, nor is it expensive to pack that punch in. On the other hand, you can jazz up the impact of your bouquet with these simple choices.

So, here is a list of ten easy ways in which you can transform your humble floral accessory into a masterpiece of art. Hope you like it.

1.Drama with bright colored flowers

One of the easiest way to make your bouquet look special is to focus on rich, luscious colors in it. The brighter the colors, the more dramatic the overall effect. Bold, solid colors are powerful and attractive, and this should be your choice if you want maximum impact. When you match the bouquet colors to that of your wedding color palette, choose only the brightest blooms with deep colors. By varying the texture and sizes of the flowers, you can add more dimension to the display. Deep, dark colors like purples, red and blues instantly add a touch of sophistication. Light colors tend to make the scenery relaxed, while dark colors do the opposite and bring in more energy.

Tip: It is best to avoid wispy strands and small, sprays of fillers like baby breath and daisies, so the impact of the bold colors in your bouquet isn’t diluted.

2. Maximum color with monochromatic bouquets

You do not anything more than a bouquet full of bright red roses, to get your floral details right. Saturated color has a strong unbeatable presence, and at times this is all that is needed for your bouquet to stand out. The size of the flowers is a factor that can enhance the effect. When the blooms are all similar in size and look, it will be more attractive. Apart from roses, there are other flowers that are equally arresting. These include tulips, hydrangea, lilies and orchids. Monochromatic red bouquets are an ever-popular and safe choice, with roses being the main choice. We think the half-opened rose buds are the most impressive flowers when used in monochromatic fashion.

3.Creative wrapping

Even the simplest bunch of flowers can be given an added dose of glamour with unusual and interesting wrapping. This is also a great way to add a unique touch to your bouquet, and make it different from what is usual. You can use lace to wrap the stems, and this may be a great way to add the lace from your mother’s wedding gown into your wedding attire, when you choose to not wear the dress itself. For a rustic style wedding, burlap wraps and rope, or twine create a befitting finish. Lush silk and pretty beads or rhine stones can dress up any bunch of flowers. By varying the wrapping, you can accomplish an entirely different effect for the same bunch of flowers. So, give due thought to how you do it. Spend time and research ideas on the best way to tie it up, and your bouquet will be a work of art when ready.

4.Choose an all-white bouquet

Your wedding dress is white, and you couldn’t go wrong with a white bouquet to go with it. This is a timeless choice that cannot go unnoticed. It is also a safe choice if you are struggling to find a bouquet design that blends in with the rest of the wedding palette. A variety of white flowers are available all-year round. So, you will always have options to create an all-white one. Either choose the same flower throughout, or play with a variety of flowers to create an entirely different impact. Roses, lily of the valley, ranunculus, chrysanthemums and orchids are all good for a beautiful monochromatic white bouquet. However, remember that you should choose flowers in a single shade of white, rather than mixing up too many variations, for maximum impact. You can also achieve varying effects by playing with the amount of  green in your bouquet. While dark green foliage will make the white brighter, yellow-toned greens can soften the stark whiteness of a bouquet.

5.Fresh from the garden look

More and more brides prefer the simple, fresh and natural look for their bridal bouquets, instead of a rigidly structured bouquet. This is refreshing, and easy to make, while the impact is often quite strong. These bouquets are usually formed of various flowers that are carefully chosen, but look like they have been effortlessly put together. A simple twine or bow is wrapped around the base, while the stems are kept impact for a rustic, casual look. Another good thing about these bouquets is that it allows you the freedom to mix and match flowers of different colors, textures and sizes, and create a cohesive bouquet. When the shape is simple and there is ample foliage, it is simply beautiful.These bouquets are the ideal choice for garden weddings and other casual,relaxed wedding themes.

6.Accessories to add bling

Bouquets that include elements other than flowers are growing in popularity. Paper bouquets, those made from brooches and jewelry, newspapers and even fabric are all common. If you don’t want to remove fresh flowers entirely from your wedding bouquet, you can add bling in smaller doses, with a few strategically placed accessories. Dress up your wedding bouquet with bright brooches, pearl necklaces or even heirloom jewelry. This can even be your something borrowed. Or if you want to add a photo of a loved one to your wedding day ensemble, incorporate this as a locket around your bunch of flowers. A small metallic element can do wonders in adding sophistication to your wedding day look. So, explore the options and find an accessory, or even a few of them that can transform your beautiful bouquet into something even more magnificent. Equally enchanting are artistically created non-metallic elements like those made from paper, stones or even shells, that can match your wedding theme.

7.Bright pops of color against white

When bright, summery shades like yellow, red and orange combine with neutrals like white and ivory, the effect is spectacular. If your wedding is in the outdoors, or is a spring or summer affair, mixing these colors in your bouquet is an easy way to liven up the scene. It is even more interesting if you vary the choice of bright flowers that are used in the arrangement. When the sizes of the colored flowers and the textures are different, it is a happy harmony of fun, and is exciting in every way. A mellow and uniform white base will offer the simple, soft background that will amplify the bright colors. We love the cheerful effect of the orange and peaches in this picture featured here. You can easily see how well they stand out against the white of the bridal gown. This style of bouquet will also be suitable at a destination wedding, where the sun meets the sand and the effect is celebrated with the bride’s brilliant bouquet.

8.Bigger the better – Oversize bouquets

This choice is particularly suitable for tall and curvy brides. A bouquet of considerable size, where every detail on it is done to perfection, can easily make a mark. Magnificent flowers like sunflowers, hydrangea and tulips can create a stunning effect with their large proportions. You can also achieve the same with a variety of smaller blooms that are mixed in bulk to create a range of textures and strengthen the effect. While you may have to consider a structured design with tight binding to hold smaller flowers in place, you can also work with 3-D designs and looser bunches when using large flowers. An advantage of using large flowers in your arrangement is that they usually last longer, which means your bouquet will remain fresh much longer. Flowers will long stems like tulips are great for this. They not only add a pop of color to the arrangement, but look flawless and lifelike.

9.Unusual and unexpected non-floral additions to the bouquet

For a truly unique and unexpected finish, add more than just your regular flowers into your bouquet. There are plenty of options in nature itself, to help you along the way. Depending on the season, theme and style of wedding, you can find elements that will work in your wedding bouquet. Succulents are an option. They easily fill up all the empty gaps in a bouquet, and have a commanding green, yet pleasing presence. For weddings in the cooler months, you may like to look at berries, acorns and twigs to add more flourish to the arrangement. Not only do these blend in with the natural scene, they are also relatively inexpensive. You can also think of decorative accessories like baubles and bells in different finishes for a more festive effect.

10.Play with shapes, textures and unusual colors

The typical wedding bouquet is predictable, except in terms of color. Step up the drama by adding various flowers and floral elements in a variety of textures and sizes. Ferns, flower buds, pods, little vine strings, twigs and thick leaves are all different choices to bring in more texture to your flower arrangement. When there is a variety of texture, the bouquet looks enchanting. Discuss with your florist on the different options you can consider to make your flower bouquet more attractive. Your florist may have to do some pre-planning to get the different items, as these may not be readily available. Mix up big and small varieties to create a blend of textures, and your bouquet will not be easily forgotten by anyone who sees it.

The wedding bouquet may only be a small factor in your wedding ensemble. Despite that, it is one that has the power to drastically contribute to your overall look. The choice of size, shape and elements that build your bouquet, will determine the impact it creates. Hence it is necessary to choose it wisely. Although a talented florist can churn out a beautiful bouquet with minimal effort, you should also do your research and supply your inputs to make sure that the bouquet design blends in with your overall wedding vision. Only then will you look perfect as you walk down the aisle, all set to be wed.

8 etiquette questions for the mother of the bride

Every mother has a vision of how her daughter should look as a bride, and it is no surprise that moms are usually a great help in helping the bride plan her wedding. All the way from being a part of her shopping entourage to supporting her with making vendor decisions and other important details, they are an indispensable presence.

However, it isn’t always smooth sailing. Unless you are a regular society bee, or have had another child get married in the recent past, it may be time to brush up on the etiquette rules you should follow for your daughter’s wedding.

So, this article is dedicated to all mothers of brides out there. Join us to find out all you need to know about your role in your daughter’s lifetime celebration.

Do I have to stick with the tradition of choosing my dress first and tell the mother of the groom what I’ll be wearing?

If you and your family are all about following traditions at your daughter’s wedding—Yes! The original practice was for the mother-of-the bride to first finish her dress shopping, and inform the mother-of-the-groom about what she would be wearing to the wedding. Then, the groom’s mother would choose a dress that would tie together with this choice, even if it wasn’t too similar. Now, times have changed, and not all people are fond of old traditions. You can always conform to the practice, if that is what you like.

Notify the groom’s mother of the outfit you have chosen for the wedding day. However, be realistic with your expectations. If she isn’t keen on following the practice, let her be. If you aren’t sure of whether your daughter’s future mother-in-law would appreciate you informing her, or whether it would seem to pushy instead, check with your daughter. She should be able to advice you on whether it is a good idea. Or, you can ask her to pass on the details to her future mother-in-law herself.

1.Do I have to ask my daughter for her thoughts on what I wear to her wedding?

Jasmine M171008

Yes! It is your daughter’s day, after all. Although it would be unreasonable of her to dictate your overall look, she may have suggestions on what you could choose to fit the overall wedding party look. Ask your daughter for recommendations on colors and dress styles, and make your pick so that it matches her expectations.

It would be a good idea to choose a color in the wedding palette or one that goes well with the bridesmaids dress colors, though not exactly the same. Either pick a different shade in the same color spectrum as the bridesmaids, or a neutral or complementary color that will work with it. Most couples have a general idea of how their wedding scenery should be, and if you can find an outfit that works well with the theme, you would be doing your bit to make them all the more happier.

2.Are there any styles that I should absolutely avoid?

This again depends on your personal preferences and that of the bride’s. You should be comfortable in what you wear and feel good too. When choosing sexy dresses that are too short, with long slits or ones that expose too much skin, you may first want to get the go-ahead from your daughter. If she is fine with your dress choice, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Instead, if she feels that you should make an elegant and modest choice, or that you may steal her thunder with the way you dress on the day, it is better you rethink your original idea. Remember that you can look glamorous and stylish, but in a way that doesn’t make anyone unhappy with your choice. We think this is the route you should take. The same applies for when your daughter asks you to dress in something that you aren’t comfortable in. Although you should try to meet her expectations when choosing a dress, you should finally wear one that makes you happy too.

3.Should I be offended if the couple won’t take any of my suggestions?

Jadore J6067

We understand that you may not be entirely happy about the couple not taking your suggestions seriously, especially if you are footing the expenses for the wedding. However, you should remember that this is their special day, and it is a once-in-a-lifetime affair for them. So, prepare to handle it gracefully if your daughter decides not to go with your suggestions. Accept that you are making suggestions, not decisions! It may not be that she thinks they are bad ideas, it could just be that she has other ideas herself that she thinks are better suited for the situation.

So, before you provide any inputs, you may actually want to ask your daughter about what her own ideas and vision is. This way, you will be able to think of relevant and appropriate suggestions, that they are more likely to accept.

Now, for some humor, we think you should head over to this page on the Knot that lists some really crazy wedding planning comments from moms! You may also like to share it with your daughter, if she thinks your suggestions are weird! She may probably ease up a little, once she sees what other moms have been up to!

4.I am not sure the to-be-weds know about our limits to finance their wedding. Is it alright to discuss this with them directly?

If the couple expect you to pay for their wedding, it is only right that you inform them of the maximum amount you can afford to spend. Have a chat about the wedding finances with the couple, so they can plan expenses accordingly. Get this across right at the start and you can save them from being disappointed after booking everything at rates that you cannot afford.

Now, if the couple intend to pay for their wedding themselves, it is best that you do not interfere with their plans at all. If you will be contributing a specific amount to the wedding budget, you can share the amount with them beforehand, so they can plan it accordingly. Or, if your idea is to sponsor a certain wedding expense, like the wedding dress or entertainment, make sure that you tell them what your limit is. This will help you both be on the same page when the time arises.

5.I think my daughter is turning into a bridezilla. Should I do something about it?

Jadore J6057

 

You know how the excitement and overwhelming planning stress can get to your daughter and turn your level-headed, pleasant girl into a monster! This does happen to many a bride, and such women put all those around her in misery. From straining her relationship with her partner, to making her bridesmaids miserable, this can cause a lot of damage. As her mother, it is essential that you support her whole-heartedly during this trying time.

Nevertheless, it is also your responsibility to put her in her place and tell her when she crosses the limit. Make suggestions to help relieve the stress, and tell her not to freak out over unnecessary details. Also gently remind her that her friends and relatives need to be treated nicely, and she cannot forego behaving well just because she is a soon-to-be bride. You are the best person to put this across to her. So, take this responsibility seriously and make things better for her and all the others involved.

6.Do I have to take the initiative and reach out to her in-laws?

It is not just customary, but sensible as well, to meet your daughter’s soon-to-be in-laws once she is engaged. Ideally, your daughter and her fiance should set this meeting up. So, wait for them to do this. If you get the idea that they will not be taking the initiative, you can take the first step forward. Talk to your daughter’s partner and find out how you can get in touch with them.

Either invite them over to your home, or plan to meet for tea or dinner at a good restaurant or cafe. If you are comfortable in playing host and inviting them to dinner, it would be a good idea to contact them directly and invite them over. Whether you meet at home or outside, make sure that the first meeting is very casual, and the purpose is to get to know them. Be supportive of your daughter’s relationship with their son, and make the most of this first move by fostering a friendly relationship with them.

7.I would love my daughter to wear my wedding gown, but I am worried it looks dated and may not be her taste. Do I offer it?

Mori Lee 70901

Your wedding dress is associated with a lot of fond memories, and it would be a dream come true to see your daughter be wed in the same dress. However, as you have already realized, it may not be the right style or fit for your daughter. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t offer it to her. Just don’t force her into considering it. If you have a great vintage dress, and it is one that matches the theme of the wedding, you may even be doing your daughter a big favor.

Also, there are many talented wedding dress makers who can repurpose a wedding gown into a brand new wedding dress, while keeping the important elements of the original dress alive. This could be by taking the lace from the dress and adding it into a modern silhouette, or simply redesigning the gown to make it modern. If your daughter would like to consider this option, give her full freedom to do what she wants with your gown. You cannot expect her to wear the dress as it is, so don’t feel bad about the dress being taken apart after you agree to let her do what she chooses with it.

There are also options like taking the lace from the wedding dress and adding it to the bridal bouquet. Finally, just remember that whether the bride says yes or no to your dress, accept her decision gracefully and don’t complain about it later.

8.What say do I have in planning the guest list?

If you are sharing the wedding expenses, it is only reasonable to expect that you have a say in who is invited to the wedding. Nonetheless, talk to the couple and find out what type of ceremony they have in mind. Keep that in mind when deciding on who you should ask them to invite. If their idea is a small, intimate wedding, respect their choice and don’t expect to invite all those you want to.

Get a clear idea of how many people you can invite, and then decide upon who goes on the list. If the number is small, make sure that you list those who are most important. As with everything wedding-related, be reasonable with your expectations and nobody will feel hurt.

Weddings are a difficult time, and a bride is lucky if she has a supportive mother to help her meet the various wedding-related challenges. It is a one-time occasion, and she deserves all the support she can have to make it a memorable event in every way. Isn’t this what moms are always there for?

13 ideas for a green wedding palette

Nature’s own neutral—green, is a beautiful color that soothes and refreshes. Although it is not one of the immediate choices for many couples when they plan their wedding palette, it is a color that can create any effect you desire. Ranging from soft and romantic, to bold and overpowering, green is a color that lends itself to any design in your mind.

Not sure it will work? Just take a look at Mother Nature! There is no color that you can’t find in nature. Doesn’t green add the beautiful background that accentuates all these colors, whatever they are?

Apart from the aesthetics, there is another reason we love green as the main wedding color. It is for what this versatile hue is linked to. Green is the color of life, freshness, growth, harmony and peace. All these virtues are relevant for a happily married life, making it all the more meaningful to include this color in your wedding. It is also the color that is easiest on the eye, and when chosen well, it can make your wedding a stunning masterpiece.

Here are thirteen ideas that you should definitely consider for inspiring your green-color wedding palette.

1.Invitations

Begin your wedding planning by choosing a refreshing green invitation card for your big day. Featured here is a Now and Forever wedding invitation from the Best for Bride wedding invitation collection. The pretty combination of silver with green shimmer, makes it an elegant and attractive card. The bright green bow adds a pop of color to the muted background in the remainder of the card, and inside is a monochromatic green card with black lettering. It is a simple, but stylish choice that will offer your guests a hint of the color that will be in focus on your wedding day.

2.Wedding Cake

Isn’t this green cake simply embellished with a scattering of white floral details, delightful? Not only does it look delicious, it forms a pretty picture without too much clutter. The beauty of green is that it allows you to create a simple, but attractive design with a minimum amount of extra elements on it. Soft and unobtrusive, a cake such as this, will be a delightful addition to your reception. As for the flavors, pistachio is the first and most interesting choice that will be perfect for your wedding cake.

3.More green desserts green cupcakes

You do not always have to color your dessert totally green, to have it blend into your wedding palette. You can accomplish the same with the accessories and other essentials that come with the cake. Take this dessert idea for example. Here are some simple, but adorable cupcakes with a smooth layer of frosting. These have been packed into olive green cupcake cases, that form a beautiful combination with the crumb color and the white frosting. Unlike other heavy and luxurious desserts, these cupcakes look appetizing and are easy to enjoy. So, if you are looking for simple dishes to pep up your wedding dessert buffet, that are both budget-friendly and attractive, here is the right idea.

4.Mostly green bouquet green bouquet While an entirely green bouquet can be fashioned out of leaves and green colors like the cymbidium orchid and chrysanthemum, we prefer the highlighting of green with the right amount of mixing with a lighter color. In this beautiful bouquet, the richness of green is enhanced by the presence of peach and soft pink, with a scattering of white daisies. The green colors in the bouquet are all in a single shade, and this accentuates the effect of the color. The few red berries in the design make it further attractive, as red is a color that compliments green beautifully.

5.Silk green tie

Why not consider choosing a lime green silk tie with tiny polka dots or a similar design for your groom? While a darker shade of green would add a more refined and formal look, a light green tie would easily make it casual and fun. So, consider this accessory for the bridegroom, and there couldn’t be a better way of adding green to his outfit. Now, if you want to add more green to your groom’s look, without making it too overwhelming, you can ask him to wear green socks and it will be that little detail that nobody is going to really notice. And, what about the bride? We’ll look at it next.

6.Dramatic green wedding shoes

 A green wedding gown may be stretching it too far. However, you can still have a stylish dose of green in your wedding by choosing a beautiful pair of green wedding shoes. And, we simply love the drama of a colored wedding shoe that pops in and out of sight, during all the dancing at the reception. Here is a pair of brilliant green wedding shoes that a bride custom purchased off Etsy, to go with her emerald engagement ring. At this Las Vegas theme wedding, the accessories were all green, and we think that this shoe is just right for it.

7.Dark green bridesmaids dresses

Green and white make a splendid combination, and this is what you can accomplish by choosing green bridesmaids dresses. You have plenty of shades to choose from, ranging from soft lime green to deep, velvety green and the jewel toned emerald green. For an iridescent effect, green with blue tones are perfect. Not only do they look festive, they are also really dressy.

This bridesmaid dress is the 6731 from the After Six dress collection. The pleated pattern and lightly shirred skirt are beautifully complemented by the overlay bodice. It is trendy, and the loose drape makes it suitable for both young girls and older bridesmaids.

8.Light green bridesmaid dresses

When your palette focuses on lighter or muted shades of green, bridesmaid dresses in mint green or lime green may be good choices. The Alfred Angelo 7378S is an exquisite dress with a strapless bodice and cocktail length skirt. The chiffon bodice drapes over a beautiful lace layer that adds an exquisite touch to the gown. This causes the bodice and the skirt to have entirely different textures, and the effect is simply stunning. Perfect for a casual outdoor wedding, a beach wedding or even a semi-formal wedding, this is a dress your bridesmaids are bound to love.

9.Green beverages and drinks

cucumber water

Chilled water with slices of cucumber floating in it, make the perfect spa refreshment. This is just perfect for a summer wedding, and you will be surprised at the number of guests who will queue up to enjoy this seemingly uncomplicated drink. Gimlets like cucumber gin, fresh lime, mint-flavored drinks and mojitos are also great choices for a wedding in a green color palette. You will be astonished at the wonderful effect a handful of leaves can add to your bar, so don’t hesitate to add them into your decor. Garnishes like olives and green chillies are also suitable for adding a pop of green to your beverage display.

10.Bright table décor

Rather than use a green table runner and place green décor items in clear jars, this couple chose to enhance the effect of green with white flowers in green mason jars and tea light candles in green glass holders. The effect is unusually interesting. The scattering of green confetti on the tables adds an extra charm. What we love most about this setting is that the elements used are budget-friendly and simple, but the impact is strong.

11.Simple green and white china for the food service

green dishes

For the food service, white china with green rims will be the perfect choice. Since the serving dishes are white, the food will not lack its appetizing colors. All the same, you can easily bring in the green color subtly and make sure it is noticeable, with a choice like this.

12.Green colored food green food

Not everyone may be super-excited about a menu with plenty of green. After all green vegetables are notorious as health food that is usually unappetizing. When planning your wedding menu, the trick is to not focus on the green. Instead, use it as an accent color in the garnish. Make the food appetizing with other colors like orange, purple and yellow, instead of white. This will make the plate pop with a variety of colors, and instantly look more appealing. The presentation of the dish can also be adapted to make it look attractive. The other option is to balance out the green in the dish with green colored china.

13.Green wedding favors

Gifting wedding favors is customary. So, how do you make it match the color theme of your party? With green as your color, you will have no dearth of options. From potted plants to candle holders, there are ample options for you to consider. These miniature garden shovels with green handles, are from our wedding favors collection and are a great wedding favor for outdoor garden weddings. Whether you use it as a decorative accessory, or gift it with a seed packet to your guests, it makes a unique and practical wedding favor.

Hope the ideas here have inspired you to think creatively and plan your green wedding. To help you a little more, we will also take a look at the various colors that form a befitting combination with green. Whether they are used in equal doses or in varying proportions, these are the colors that will give you a striking impact when combined with green.

Combinations that work with green

Green is a color with a personality by itself. Nevertheless, the beauty of green can be further enhanced by adding colors that complement it. One combination that we are all familiar with is green and red. But this reminds us of a Christmas scene, and so it may not be a great idea to use. There are many other colors that yield beautiful combinations with green. These are colors that are either neutrals or those that come on the opposite side of the color spectrum as green. They include the following.

A point to remember when mixing colors is that you should balance out the colors in equal combinations of light and dark. You should also be liberal with the addition of details in neutrals, when the green you choose is of a bold shade.While green can be tried and tested with various other colors, the ones mentioned here are classic combinations that simply cannot go wrong.  It is a good idea to create an inspiration board and compile pictures of the various combinations that you find interesting,and build your palette from there.
