flowers in shades of white that will compliment the color

For an elegant, custom look, have your bridal bouquet and
bridesmaids' bouquets hand-tied. Wrap the stems to the bottom
with complimentary ribbon or let the stems hang loose. If
you'll make the hand-tied bouquets yourself, have the flowers
delivered with long stems. Keep the bouquet in water until
needed, then clip off about 1" at the end and dry off the
stems so they don't bleed on the gowns. If the wedding day
is going to be long and hot, consider making two bridal
bouquets, so that you'll have a fresh one for photos.
Ring of Flowers
for the Hair
A flower girl will look almost angelic with a delicate halo
of flowers on her head. Bridesmaids, too, will love the special
touch of a blossom or two tied into the hair.
A Rainbow of
Rich colors can really make a floral bouquet stand out and draw
the eye. Choose colors that enhance the color scheme of the
wedding and the bridesmaids' dresses. Select from the full spectrum
of flower colors including soft pinks to deep, rich cranberry,
delicate mauve to deep purple, butter yellow to bright rust,
and blush pink to hot fuschia. Flowers in colors that match
the dresses will look subtle, while contrasting tones will call
attention to the flowers.
