From simple white nosegays to vibrant handpicked blooms, find inspiration from these real 'maids.
While much thought and attention will likely go into choosing the blooms and colors for your bridal bouquet, it's also important to consider the style of the floral arrangements your bridesmaids will hold throughout the ceremony. Like their dresses, it's likely you'll want to choose a design that complements your own. Work with your floral designer to consider using similar colors, flowers, or details, such as ribbon, to unite your arrangements.
Typically, bridesmaids will hold a compilation of flowers that are not quite as bountiful as the bride's bouquet; however, some brides choose to carry the same size bouquet as their 'maids in a similar style. For example, bridesmaids may carry all-white rose bouquets, while the bride clutches a glamelia bouquet made of rose petals to look like one big bloom. From elegant creations composed of one single type of flower to vibrant collections of florals that appear to be freshly picked from the garden, the decision is completely up to you – and may also be influenced by your wedding location or venue. A church ceremony may call for a streamlined look with orchids or roses in ivory or pale pink, while arrangements of multiple blooms in various hues will complement an alfresco garden vow exchange.
