If you’re set on having a stylish and unique bouquet for your wedding, don’t let tradition prevent you from fulfilling your dreams! From domestic elements to international, exotic ones, from budget to wildly spendy, from the romantic to the sophisticated and the simplistic to the blatantly over-the-top, your red wedding bouquet can be one or all of these things!
Idea No. 1 – Choose a formal or casual style For a winter wedding you can opt for a formal, professionally-coordinated red wedding bouquet of fresh seasonal flowers like wholesale lilies.
For a summer wedding that’s casual and young, grasping the essence of the season comes easy with a vibrant red roses wedding bouquet. Offset these with white stephanotis for a graceful effect.
Idea No. 2 – Go unique with a pattern like the Biedermeier bouquet This style works especially well for a red rose bridal bouquet wherein the rosebuds are tightly structured together in a circular pattern, as determined by the Swiss origins of this arrangement.
The red Biedermeier bouquet may have a variety of red-colored flowers for each ring, as opposed to the multicolored effect of the original 1800′s style. For contrast, you can add in a white or cream silk or lace ruffle under the bouquet’s outermost ring to really set off its dramatic quality!
Idea No. 3 – Get a red, hand-tied tropical flowers wedding bouquetRed Calla lilies are really striking wedding flowers that can truly showcase your wedding dress with their vibrant and exotic appeal, especially if you’re planning a beach or outdoor wedding! Or, you can opt for Plumeria crimson and Lilies of the Nile in a reddish shade.
Hand-tying is especially easy, too, if you’re good at crafting and adding bows. Twist some clear synthetic thread or craft wire around trimmed stems, then casually loop a few satin ribbons and tassels to hang down from the knot of the bouquet. There! You’ve made it look magical in just a few minutes.
Idea No. 4 – Get a tinted Gerbera daisy wedding bouquetYou can buy light shades of orange, white and pink Gerbera daisies that you can tint at the tips with deep red color. Surround these lovelies with dark red Gerbera daisies for a complementary monochromatic look to your wedding bouquet.
Idea No. 5 – Get a kissing ball bouquetYou may remember your grandmother using clove pomander balls in her wardrobe to make her clothes fragrant. You can use this clever old-fashioned method and also give your wedding dress a welcome boost by arranging your favorite red flowers – Orchids, Petunias, Roses, mini Calla lilies and so on – in a kissing ball bouquet, similar to the pomander look. It’s old-worldly and completely charming!
Idea No. 6 – Red wedding beaded bouquet for a glitzy look Purchase a long string of faux seed pearls and loop these around your red wedding bouquet for a truly elegant look. Or, embellish the blooms in your bouquet with blingy accents like rhinestone picks, diamante butterflies, glue-on beads or even red berries hung in short strings from decorative gold tassels on the outer floral ring of your bouquet.
Idea No. 7 – Sparkle-spray your wedding bouquet to highlight the redIf you’ve set your heart on red flowers for your wedding bouquet, draw attention to this remarkable, passionate color. Give them a dewy-wet and fresh look by spraying some sparkle spray on them, which you can grab at the local stationery store!
