Bridal Bouquet

The artsy airbrushed wedding dress

In an earlier blog post I have already challenged the thought that a wedding dress is supposed to be white! At the NY Bridal Fashion Week in April designer Naeem Khan showed a wide variety of colored wedding gowns. The colorful bridal decor trend has flourished, and now we can add a new trend to this lovely wedding spectre - the airbrushed wedding dress! 

 When the artist Taylor Ann got married this summer, it was in a one of a kind artwork of a dress. Bought in a regular wedding dress shop she had taken this gorgeous but quite regular wedding dress and airbrushed it with bright colors. By that she created a very original and brand new wedding dress look.

At the first glans you might think dip died - it is not! You can learn more about how to airbrush a wedding dress here

The reason why I personally admire this bold choice so much, is that she used the colors in her dress as a guide line to the general wedding theme and decor. Even her hair was in the color scheme, and I simply love that!

And then she topped it off with a pair of big boots - at a forest wedding - ingenious!!!

 A wide palette of colors was used, and still nothing seamed uncoordinated or messy!

The history and traditions of the bridal bouquet

The bridal bouquet is for most brides a bare necessity.  Whether one is planning on a big church wedding with reception and dinner at a magnificent castle, or just keeping it simple and planning on a city hall wedding, the bridal bouquet is the most common and sort after bridal accessories. The Veil, the big dress, the blue, the old and the borrowed are not always represented, but it is seldom that you come across a bride without a beautiful bouquet.

It is tradition for the groom to provide the bouquet, but in most cases the bride or the bride’s mom has a say in the design of the bouquet.

But if you are a traditional groom, we have some tips for you. When you go to the florist there are a few information’s that will help in designing the perfect bouquet for your wife to be. They may want to know the color of the dress – and yes I do know it is probably white, but what sort of white color is it? Cream, champagne, clear white or perhaps egg shell. It might help to bring a fabric sample from the dress..

It is also a good idea to bring a photo of the bride. Her statue is important, because it says a lot about which bouquets she can pull off. The bride is not to disappear behind a mountain of flowers. As the bridal gown may change the statue a bit, it can be a good idea to know which type of dress the bride will be wearing – is it a ball gown, A-line or maybe a  mermaid gown?

Our last recommendation should be the easy one, but can prove to be difficult – trust your instincts. One must assume that the groom would be the person knowing the bride best, but when it comes to following instincts it can be a tough job being a groom. Just remember that then it comes down to it, the most important thing for the bride is that her husband to be is enchanted with her looks. She will love the bouquet you choose because you choose it. This last rule apply to most bride’s. As a  groom you can only sat praise to the fact that tradition tells you to choose the bouquet and not the dress.

The bridal bouquets as we know it dates back to the 1880’s. Before then the bride wore a smaller chest bouquet attached to her dress. The fashion have changed over the years, but the bouquet has always been in fashion.
