Flower Power!

There are never two floral arrangements that are exactly the same, especially when it comes to weddings. Although many of the same flowers are used during certain times of the year, there are always a great variety of bouquets. Many times, flowers that are used in summer or spring bouquets can also be used in the winter, so there is really no limit to what you can use. If you are dead set on using a certain flower that is not in season, you can do it, but it may cost quite a bit more money, which is the only downside.

There are also a lot of ways that you can save money when buying flowers. If you choose to have a long/thick stemmed flower such as a sunflower, calla lily, or rose, then the bridesmaids' bouquets can have just a few of the flowers wrapped in ribbon. Also, you can create bouquets that have
multiple flowers, some of which may be a little more pricey and the rest can be something that is a little cheaper, like carnations or daisies. Doing this allows the bouquet to have some diversity and not be as expensive as having the entire bouquet with the same kind of flower. 
 
Your bouquet will be one of the most photographed details of your wedding, so it's important to choose something that truly fit your wedding style. Also, I believe that there should be a slight difference between the bride's bouquet and the bridesmaids' bouquets whether it be size, color, or a different flower. There are a lot of brides who decide to have a white bouquet, while her bridesmaids have colorful ones. Or, the bride chooses to have a fuller bouquet with several different flowers and her bridesmaids' bouquets have one specific flower from the bride's bouquet.
 
Personally, I am crazy about bouquet ideas! I can never get tired at looking at them, which is why this post is a little different. Instead of explaining each flower bouquet to you, I’m going to let them speak for themselves. Enjoy the creativity!
