Unfortunately a lot of ladies pay little attention to their bridal bouquet because they are going to throw it away at the end of the day. However, note that bouquets far from being much needed distractions used to keep your extremely nervous hands occupied (because let’s face it, someone’s about to put a ring on it);can also be amazing accessories. Play your bouquet up by using bold colours such as splashes of red, sunny yellow and screaming hot pink, holding the flowers together with artful designs that show off the selection of leaves, twigs, sprigs, ribbon, fabrics, and even–hello!–jewellery! Remember how diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Yup.
The more beautiful and inspired your bouquet, the better it will look as a lovely prop when you’re taking your amazing wedding photographs!
