How to choose the perfect pink wedding bouquet?

A pink wedding bouquet can be both beautiful and full of secret hidden meaning. Pink symbolizes love and romance, and the language of love is never more important than on your wedding day. So choosing the perfect pink wedding bouquet is very much a true labor of love.

Choosing your pink flowers

It's important that your bouquet compliments your wedding gown, so take a photo, or better still a fabric swatch, with you when you first meet with your florist. They can then expertly match the perfect color combinations of pink flowers to your wedding gown. A pink wedding bouquet will provide a classic look when teamed with traditional ivory or white fabrics, the soft and delicate color of pink lily flowers is always a popular choice among brides. But if your gown is a more vibrant color, such as green or orange, then flowers in hot pinks can accentuate your look as well as creating a dramatic focal point for your wedding photos.

You will also need to make sure your pink wedding bouquet works well with the shape and style of your wedding dress. A gown with a full skirt will look better with a large, full bouquet made from a variety of different flowers and foliage; a small posy held against such a big dress would lose any dramatic impact you were hoping for. If you have a short wedding gown then it is best to go for a small bouquet, or even carry just a single stem, such as a pink rose or pink carnation. Your height will also have some influence on your choice of bouquet. A tall bride can get away with a long cascading bouquet of pink calla lilies, whereas a shorter bride should go for less of a cascading effect; a cluster of pink roses or a posy would be more in keeping.

Flowers for the whole of your wedding scheme

You will need to decide if you want all of your wedding flowers pink. Your bridesmaids and flower girls should carry bouquets that are similar to yours, so if you are planning on a single color scheme for your own bouquet, then their bouquets will need to look slightly different from yours - and definitely smaller! A good choice is to match the pink color from your own bouquet, and to team it with the same variety of flower but in a different color. For example, if a bride has a bouquet of pink roses, the bridesmaid's bouquets could be mostly cream with just a few pink roses.

Don't forget buttonholes for the men! The groom, and groomsmen should wear a flower that matches your bouquet. A small pink rose or carnation looks stylish and neat. And the mother of the bride will look great wearing a pink corsage that matches her daughter's pink wedding bouquet.

If you are thinking about having flowers entwined into your hairstyle, then your florist can supply you with single flowers secured onto thin florists wire, which your hairstylist can fix securely into your hair.

If you are planning on having table centerpieces and other floral arrangements, be sure to let your florist know so that they can match the colors and flowers from your pink wedding bouquet, to create stunning displays and ensure a cohesive color scheme is maintained.
