plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Adding color to your bouquet is one of the easiest ways to add a pop of color to your wedding day look. Many brides still seek the traditional white bouquet, but opting for color instead brings a new level of dimension to the party (well, your attire).

While a white bouquet is gorgeous, it can get lost against your white dress. So, why not carry a little color, and let your bridesmaids carry white instead. The white bouquet will complement their colored dress. If you had them carry a colored bouquet, it could easily get lost against their dresses.

After all, it is the bride that should be the center of attention (and, the groom, too).

    could NOT agree more! From a photographers standpoint… white bouquets are the suck! Oh, and while I’m at it… I don’t like all green bouquets either. Blends into most nature backgrounds. It’s your one day to be a show off… do it big! 🙂

  2. I’m going to agree with the post 100%! Although I love the traditional look of all-white, a pop of color is what side of the fence I’m on. Great post, Brit!

  3. WOW! What a bouquet! Love the idea of the bridesmaids carrying the white and the bride carrying the color – i might just have to do that myself!

  4. very very true! great tip.

    Love the pop of color! The only “color” I had in our black and white scheme was the flowers. LOVE THIS LOOK!
