The time of year you are getting married You should work closely with your florist to make sure the flowers you choose are in season.

The look and feel of your wedding and your dress Are you wearing an all white gown? Then possibly those Anemones may not be the best idea as they can easily leave a black residue on your dress. Maybe instead opt to have them shown off in your reception center pieces.

Your color scheme Is it soft and muted? Or more deep and rich? I’d suggest again working closely with your florist to create an unforgettable palette for your bouquet that will not only compliment your dress but the overall scheme of your wedding.

Play it up or play it down How will you dress up your bouquet? You can go as simple as having the stems exposed. This gives your bouquet a more organic look. Or you can adorn the stems with a ribbon that compliments the look and feel of your wedding. I personally LOVE these.

Put your stamp on it This is where you can have fun getting creative to personalize your bouquet making it even more special to you. Maybe you can tie the stems with an old vintage scarf that once belonged to your grandmother. Or maybe you pin a brooch to it that your mom wore on her wedding. Or maybe you sew an old earring that you once wore on repeat when out with friends as a silent tribute to your days as “single ladies” (I totally did that {see pic above :) }
