Beautiful wedding events can bring a tear to anyone’s eye, but wedding planning can undoubtedly make you weep. Wedding planning could be one of the most stressful jobs in the world, and if you don’t think so, you’ve probably never had to plan a wedding before. Either way, there’s a ton of work that goes behind a perfect wedding, from preparing the venue, deciding on the menu, sending out invitations, choosing the outfits for the bride and groom, choosing the chair covers and linen to choosing the wedding bouquet.
For such a small detail, the bride’s bouquet carries a huge symbolism. In history, bouquets were meant to prevent bad luck during the wedding ceremony. But, the flowers also symbolize bliss, fertility, and fidelity. Moreover, its symbolism is also amplified by the color choices and the types of flowers the couple opts for. For instance, gardenias signify joy, carnations for boldness, orchids for beauty, and tulips for love. Depending on your choice of flowers, fillers, greenery, and ribbons, it’s possible to come up with one of those whimsical wedding bouquets you’ve always dreamed about.
This 2021, wedding bouquets will take a turn, especially with people becoming more open to all kinds of designs and new concepts. While traditional styles are likely to endure the test of time, there’s no harm in seeing new and creative types. Besides, many people are more adventurous and daring with their tastes, and the traditional wedding bouquet just won’t cut it.
To help with deciding on the bouquet, it’s also necessary to think of the whole wedding theme. This will narrow decision making down to make the process quicker, easier, and less stressful. So, if you’re on the lookout for some inspiration, here are some exciting and unique bouquet trends to try out:
- Playful Colorful Combinations
Daring choices are trendy, and you can definitely apply this in your bouquet choice and even the entire theme of the decorations. Whites and muted pinks are the usual choices, but they can get boring. There’s nothing wrong if such colors fit your taste, however, nowadays, people are excited to see something new. So, don’t be afraid to be unique by using analogous, complementary, split complementary, and other color schemes.
- Muted Earthy Tones
Muted earthy tones are becoming increasingly popular due to their versatility. They fit well with themes like rustic or boho. Although they’re not as eye catching as electric color combinations, their understated elegance gives off sophistication and simplicity.
- Seasonal Flower Choices
Choosing flowers depending on the season in which your wedding day is taking place is a fantastic and practical approach. The florist for your wedding will also be thankful for this choice because it’s a more reasonable request to work with seasonal flowers in the area. Transporting flowers that grow from other areas can be difficult, and they might end up wilting. Besides, a lot of wedding themes are based on different seasons, so it’s pretty standard.
- Accentuate With Dried Flowers And Foliage
Seasonal flowers are great, but it can be challenging to get a hold of fresh flowers for your bouquet during the winter season. In this case, mixing some fresh flowers with dried flowers and foliage can make a gorgeous bouquet. Dried flowers add warmth and a unique texture to your bouquet, especially if arranged sporadically.
- Choose Wildflowers
If you’re a rustic bride who loves to hike, camp out, and forage, then going for wildflowers will be a terrific fit. They can give off a natural and simple beauty, and it probably won’t cost you much if you pick them yourself! Depending on where you live, you can find gorgeous wildflowers, like sweat peas, baby’s breath, cosmos, sunflowers, zinnias, and many more. The key to having a gorgeous bouquet of wildflowers is to try not to make it look like an expert has arranged them. After all, their charm lies in their wildness.
- Include Succulents
Another new trend is to use greenery and succulents over blooming flowers. This is a beautiful trend to follow this 2021 because of how succulents have charmed so many people. They’re simple, beautiful, and give off an unusual allure, almost like you’ve just picked up a group of growing greeneries from the ground and arranged them gorgeously.
Thinking about what bouquet you want to have can be as challenging as shopping for a wedding dress. There are so many to choose from and you want to try out. But, if there’s one important thing to keep in mind, it is to make sure that whatever you choose must reflect your personality as the bride. Don’t just decide on a whim for the sake of being trendy. Stay true to yourself and always envision yourself walking down the aisle when picking out a bouquet.
