When you start choosing your wedding flowers the bride's bouquet is definitely the starting point. We believe all the other arrangements should complement the bride’s bouquet. The bridesmaid bouquets are usually a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet and they also complement the color of the bridesmaids dresses. The options for the flower girls are many: they can carry mini bouquets that match the bridesmaid bouquets, wear a head wreath of the same kind of flowers from the bride's bouquet or carry a basket of petals or a pomander (a flower ball suspended on a ribbon).
The bouquet you will be carrying down the aisle should suits you to perfection, here some suggestions to help you pick your flowers. You should begin to think about your wedding flowers after you have chosen your wedding gown and the settings of your ceremony so that your flowers will be in complete harmony with the wedding atmosphere, theme and surroundings.
Magazines and internet are excellent sources of ideas as well as wedding locations, wedding details or even friends weddings. Remember that you are getting married in Italy, a country full of traditions that can definitely give you inspiration. Ultimately the colour scheme can play the deciding role.
Bridal flowers come in many styles, from the small, compact and round shaped bouquets to the popular bouquet to a cascade, in which flowers drape just creating a little point or spill elegantly down the wedding dress.
In bridal bouquets there are no strict rules to follow, although the secret to success like in anything is to avoid extremes. The bouquet should also complement the bride's own proportions. Heavy profusions of flowers may overwhelm petite women, whereas small posies can look too diminutive when they are carried by statuesque brides. Please remember that although most blossoms are these days available all year-round from florists, flowers are most affordable and best-looking in season. Blooms that must be imported always cost more, please do take advantage of our florists suggestions as they are professionals working with many brides and their ideas at many weddings in Italy, they know what looks best and last the longest in the heat and they will be able to help you to make the most of your wedding flowers.
