When you think of wedding flowers, the first image that comes to mind is always the bride’s bouquet. And why not, as Cole Porter wrote, the bridal bouquet is the top. And Bella Flowers is offering a free bridal bouquet worth $175 upon booking your wedding and reception flowers by November 26th. Call us or come in today! And to give you some ideas for your own bouquet, here are some stunning bouquets using three of the most beautiful, traditional, and popular wedding flowers: lilies of the valley, roses, and peonies.
There are two basic types of bridal bouquets: the formal, all white bouquet, and the more casual colored bouquet. Under those categories are structured bouquets, loose ones, textured…a dizzying array (it helps to have the help of a talented floral designer like Bella Flowers.) Lilies of the valley are only available in white, and while roses and peonies are available in many shades of white, cream and ivory, your Bella floral designer would be happy to show all of the many varied shades of these flowers.
What flower is so simple, yet so elegant, it was carried by both Grace Kelley and Kate Middleton? Pure white lilies of the valley can create an incomparably fragrant, traditional bouquet, or, when simply hand-tied with a ribbon, it can be an uncomplicated gathering of flowers from the spring garden. (If you’re lucky enough to have them growing in your garden!) Here is a classic bridal bouquet of lilies of the valley, as done by Bella Flowers:
Or you can combine lilies of the valley with other spring flowers, such as in this bouquet of sweet peas, tulips, and lilies of the valley:
Roses are perhaps the quintessential bridal flower. Roses can be the feature of a bouquet, as in this bouquet of ivory Vendela roses.
Roses are just as beautiful in combination with other flowers. And as beautiful as white and ivory flowers are, there is a world of color out there just begging to be featured on your big day. Roses come in many sizes and shapes and in pretty much every color of the rainbow. This Bella bouquet mixes pale pink roses with white hydrangea and pink mini callas:
Also by Bella is this bouquet of pink roses mixed with what is possibly the most currently popular wedding flower, the peony. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves!
Roses come in beautiful brights, and some of the darkest floral shades available. Here is a gorgeous bright coral rose bouquet, and two incredible bouquets featuring bright roses.
And this is a Bella bouquet of deep-toned roses mixed with green hydrangea and other flowers.
And finally, peonies have become extremely popular for bridal bouquets because they are just so, well, spectacular! In the last generation they have gone from the queen of the spring garden to the star of the bridal bouquet. And like roses, they are available from the creamiest pales through brights and darker tones.
If you’re feeling inspired by these amazing bridal bouquets, or even if you’re not–although I find that hard to believe!–give Bella Flowers a call and they can design the bridal bouquet of your dreams. And the centerpieces of your dreams, and the ceremony flowers of your dreams…you get the idea. Don’t forget that Bella Flowers is offering a free bridal bouquet worth $175 upon booking your wedding and reception flowers by November 26th!
