Wednesday Wedding Tips: Bridal Bouquets, a Pet Peeve

February 8, 2012

So, this is definitely not a wedding tip. It is much more of a wedding pet peeve… the wedding bouquet. Specifically, color in the wedding bouquet. I dislike, no, better yet have a ridiculously strong aversion to, all white bridal bouquets. Okay, I hate all white bridal bouquets.

I know, I know… it is traditional and yes the flowers are pretty. But I just think it wastes money on something that blends into the dress. And let’s be honest, the dress is the center of the show (after the fact that two people are getting married, that is clearly the first thing). Yes, you could say that you don’t want any item to detract from the dress (which costs a pretty penny) but why have something blend in? And flowers are SO expensive, I mean those cost a bit of money and don’t last all that long. Unless of course, you spend the money to have them preserved and then put on display in your house. But if you do white flowers, they are still going to turning a yellow/brown before they are preserved.

So, for a number of reasons, I think that brides should have some color in their bridal bouquets. That is not to say that some white flowers can’t be in there, but there should be more color than white.  I think it is pretty when a bride walks down the aisle and there is a little pop of color to go along with that white dress.

Just my pet peeve at weddings. And all of my friends know it J

    and yes with a white dress a bold color is direly needed to pop up as an accent!
