There is a popular custom about the origin of the bridal bouquets, which goes back to the ancient times and there we find that the bridal bouquet was used to protect the bride from the evil spirits.
It was believed, that the odor of the flowers drove the evils away from the happy feast. Today the odor is not so important as the design of the bouquet, so we suggest you 5 steps, which will help you to choose a bouquet for your special day.
1. Choose the color of the flowers
Before choosing a color for your wedding bouquet, you should choose a color for your whole wedding. While choosing a color for your bouquet you can coordinate or contrast the color of your wedding dress. For instance, a white wedding dress and a classic red bouquet will be a great mixture of love and passion.
2. Choose the size and the shape of the bouquet.
Do you want your bouquet to be big or small? Do you want it to be round, cascade or pageant? Take time to choose the size and the shape of your bouquet. Remember, there is no good or bad shape or size, it is up to your taste.
3. Consider the season of the wedding.
Nowadays it is not a problem to find a flower in non-season though the flowers will look much better when they are in their season.
