Your bridal bouquet is a once in a lifetime accessory as you will not need it on any other day. When else do you get to carry a beautiful bunch of flowers designed especially for you, all day long? Here are some useful tips that will help you pick your unique bridal bouquet.
- Select your wedding dress before selecting your flowers
When you go for your florist appointment, be sure to bring a picture of you in your wedding dress (or just your wedding dress) so your florist knows what colours she can play with. Make sure your bouquet is the perfect size, not too small that it causes chatter among the aunties and not to big that it disrupts your silhouette. While bridal bouquet trends change all the time, it is very important to make sure your bridal bouquet enhances your look at not the other way round. Make sure it does not drown you or hide the beautiful details in your dress. If you are having your wedding dress altered, ask your tailor for some scraps and pass them to your florist so she can make bands to tie around the bouquet, making it look a lot more personalized and nobody will know how easy it was to make it look fancy like that.
- Picking the type of flower you want
Some flowers are not available at certain times of the year as they are seasonal, or are very expensive. If your wedding falls on a Valentine’s Day or Mother’s day, it can be up to 50 times more expensive for a stalk of rose, for example. A rose can be 99 cents on a normal day but 49 dollars per stalk on a holiday. Make sure to take this into your consideration when selecting which type of lowers to make into your bridal bouquet.
- Knowing how to pull it off
Most brides in Singapore tend to hold their bridal bouquet with two hands and what this does s it carries up the shoulders, giving the bride a very stiff and unnatural look. Some brides tend to hold it too high up that it covers the beautiful details of the wedding gown. This tends not to make a great picture. Remember to hold your bouquet in one hand and right below your hip. The best way is to tell all your bridesmaid so once you do what you are not supposed to, you will have one of those girls to come remind you. That is what they’re for, no? this is so that the silhouette of the dress is visible, and your shoulders will looked relaxed and natural. Your photos are going to look BOMB because your posture will be good hence, improving your poses in each picture.
