Bridal BouquetsBook - 2002
As every bride knows, flowers contribute greatly to the look of a wedding and a bold bonquet or pretty posy is the quintessential bridal accessory. But how does a bride start to plan her flowers? What colour should she choose, what kind of bouquet will best suit her dress, which flowers will be in season at the time of her wedding, and how does she find a florist she can trust? Bridal Bouquets addresses all these important issues as well as providing an abundance of inspiration. An exquisitely illustrated source book, it presents a wide range of stylish, elegant ideas for flowers to be carried and worn by the bride, her bridesmaids and flower girls, and other members of the bridal party. The first part of the book offers the bride-to-be invaluable and accessible practical advice on choosing her bouquet. Different wedding themes--formal, traditional, contemporary, or country, for example--are considered, and two of the most important aspects of choosing bridal flowers--working with colour and working with the seasons--are examined in more detail. The heart of the book is organized by colour: whites and creams, yellows, oranges, red, pinks, purples, blues, and greens. The third section of the book shows how to put colours together and explains the secret of successful colour combinations, be they romantic, jeweled, or dramatic. Whether your wedding is a relaxed country-style affair, a sophisticated modern celebration, or a more traditional occasion, this exquisitely illustrated book offers inspiration for flowers that will set the tone for a magical and memorable wedding day.
