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.

Pleasantly pink

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.

Winter Wedding Flowers

3
When planning a wedding, choosing flowers in season is a well-known strategy for saving money. What if you are having a winter wedding? Are there flowers in the season even when the ground is covered in snow? What are the options for winter wedding flowers? Should couples use trendy alternatives to flowers in order to save money when planning a winter wedding?

Winter wedding flowers can be economical or break the bank. If you have your heart set on having flowers that are not in season during the winter, your floral budget can suffer. You may have to pay more or have fewer flowers to accommodate the extra cost associated with off-season flowers.

Some flowers are available year-round at very reasonable prices. Roses, carnations, Gerbera daisies, and some types of lilies are a few of the flowers that are generally available at any time of year. Remember, if your wedding is close to Valentine’s Day, the price of roses may be much higher than usual. Narcissus is an economical winter flower.

When choosing the types of flowers that you want for your winter wedding, you could ask florists what flowers would be easiest on your budget. If you want a particular flower to be the highlight of your wedding flowers, you can call local florists and ask for pricing for what you want on the date of your wedding. You may find a florist who has your favorite flower for a significantly lower price than the others.

Many types of filler flowers in a variety of colors are available throughout the year. Don’t be discouraged if there aren’t any economical choices for flowers that would show off the wedding colors. White flower-like white roses or white lilies could be used along with filler flowers and accents that match the wedding colors. Dried flowers and eucalyptus are other options for bouquets and wedding flowers.

Winter brides often get creative with alternatives to flowers. They may have fewer flowers and supplement the wedding flowers with handmade accents. Paper and burlap flowers are a popular DIY wedding decoration. One couple made burlap roses for their groomsmen’s boutonnieres. Modern bouquets can be crafted from fabric, feathers, colorful buttons, beads, strings of pearls, vintage brooches, or photocopies of pages from the couple’s favorite book. Even white, black, and gray leather has been used to make a rose bouquet.

Embrace the white, snowy look. While one option is to go bold with red roses and other red flowers that are in season, consider echoing the pristine winter with your flowers. Some gorgeous wedding bouquets and arrangements have been made with white peonies and dusty miller for a white winter look. The dusty miller provides a silvery-gray accent. Within the context of winter, they can look as if they are ferns dusted with snow.

Expensive Flowers for Weddings

3

For those who have an unlimited budget when it comes to planning their wedding, expensive flowers are more than likely one of the top things that they are considering. If flowers are the area that you are most likely to splurge on, you may be interested to learn more about these specific flowers. If you are trying to save money on your wedding flowers, be sure to steer clear of these options.

Casa Blanca Lily

This is considered to be the most expensive flower for weddings. Unfortunately, they are also some of the most beautiful options as well. If this is your favorite flower and you are planning to include it with your décor, be prepared to spend a pretty penny on it. However, you can save some money by only using it sparingly and including other flowers in the arrangement as well. Red roses pair very beautifully with this flower and are a very popular addition to a Casa Blanca Lily wedding.

Gardenia

Not only are gardenias beautiful, they also have a fantastic aroma that comes along with them. Since they are very expensive, you may want to choose a different flower for your wedding, however. One option to think about is going with a different type of flower and wearing gardenia perfume instead.

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are also a beautiful option and are extremely popular. One of the best things about them is that there is a huge variety in color options that you can choose from. However, since they are so expensive, an alternative might be necessary. One fun idea is to go with Snapdragons instead. Not only do they have a similar look as what hydrangeas offer, but they also have a good variety when it comes to different colors as well.

Lily of the Valley

The flowers are beautiful and there is not really an option that can replace their unique look. They also have a fantastic scent to enjoy as well. If you are determined to have them in your wedding, you may need to look for some silk options rather than real in order to save your budget.

Orchid

These delicate flowers offer a beautiful look for any wedding. They also come in a variety of colors and are stunning to look at. With expenses running high for brides who choose this flower, you may need to find some other areas in your wedding to save money on. This can help you to pay for this lovely flower so that you can still have them in your wedding.

Conclusion

There is an endless amount of flowers to choose from for your wedding. Even if you cannot include these beautiful and expensive options in your wedding, you will still be able to have a beautiful wedding. Just remember, keep your eyes open for discounts and be open to making a few changes here and there in order to keep your budget intact.
