bridesmaid bouquet Bridesmaids' bouquets often coordinate with the bride's bouquet in style, whether traditional, modern, or casual.  When choosing these bouquets, consider the color, fabric, and pattern of the dresses.  Multi-colored, mixed bouquets are better for a solid color gown, and simple monochromatic bouquets are better for a busy print.  Make sure the bouquets are not too heavy, and make sure the flowers chosen don't cause allergies for an attendant.

Bridesmaids' bouquets don't have to be the traditional hand-held flowers.  Instead you may choose a single bloom tied with an attractive ribbon, a nosegay, or a tussie-mussie.  Each bridesmaid might carry a bouquet made of one flower type or color to mirror the bride's bouquet.  Or have your attendants carry woven or silver baskets, or a stylish handbag filled with flowers.  These also make unique bridesmaid gifts.  Perhaps a grapevine wreath with flowers attached will fit your style.  While Spring or Summer weddings typically use lighter flowers in blue, yellow, or pink, Fall and Winter season weddings often use mums or deep colored flowers with an accent of colored leaves, evergreen, and berries.

bridesmaids bouquets Bring a sample of the bridesmaids' dresses to your florist so that ribbon, trim, and flower colors can be closely matched.  The florist will then know the color scheme of your wedding and can add visual interest to the bridesmaids' dresses with the flowers chosen.  Make sure your florist knows whether you want seasonal flowers or headdresses for your bridesmaids.

The bridesmaids and their flowers surround and complement the bride's beauty so that she stands out on her special day.  The Knot Bridesmaid Handbook discusses bridesmaid flowers along with other topics of interest to prospective bridesmaids.
