Rustic Pink Wedding Flowers ~ Crystal’s Inspiration Board

Crystal writes:  Hi, I am getting ready for an August wedding and am having difficulties deciding what flowers to use. My bridesmaids will be wearing black dresses, all different. I would like the colors of the flowers to be be different shades of cream, green, and pinks. We are going for a rustic chic look. It’s not going to be fancy, but nothing to informal either. For our table decorations we will be having 3 different size vases with flowers and branches in them. Please help!

Peach Pink & Gold Wedding Flowers ~ Stephanie’s Inspiration Board

Stephanie writes:  Hi! My wedding is going to be in September. I’m marrying a marine, who will be in his dress blues. I want my colors to compliment that, but stay with my inspiration as well. I want gold and cream as the main colors, with splashes of pastel peaches and pinks with greenery in the flowers. I’m going for a romantic, natural and somewhat garden-inspired wedding. I’m going to have many small cocktail tables and would like small centerpieces staying romantic/natural looking.

Top Tips: Coordinating Wedding Party Flowers

Brides planning your wedding party’s flowers around your bridal bouquet can be easy.  Don’t get overwhelmed with too many choices when deciding on bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages.

If you’ve settled on your wedding flowers and bouquet style your work is half way done.  Coordinating the rest of the wedding party’s flower arrangements will be based off the decisions you’ve made for your bridal bouquet.

Wedding colors  + Wedding flowers + Bridal bouquet style =

A Good Start in Coordinating Your Bridal Party Flowers

The bride’s bouquet is going to be more elaborate, typically consisting of two- three types of flowers and color choices.  That gives you more options to break down flower arrangements into smaller bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages.

The bridal party flowers are going to be an extension of your more elaborate bridal bouquet.  They are meant to accent and complement the main focal piece carried by the bride who should be the center of attention on her wedding day!

Lets take a look at two different bridal bouquets and their coordinating bridesmaid bouquet and boutonniere:

Hot Pink and Black

The hot pink and black bridal bouquet is composed of three types and colors of flowers with some dramatic black feather and rhinestone accents.  It gives us a great start to break down flowers into smaller and simpler arrangements.

The bridesmaid bouquet borrows one type of flower from the larger bouquet.  A simple hand-tied gerbera daisy bouquet captures the same style with black ribbon accents and touches of rhinestones.  The boutonniere pulls all three color choices together with a simple flower combination.

Three different arrangements that work together by coordinating flowers and colors.

Pink, White and Peach

The peony and rose bouquet in pink and white is a fresh, full arrangement perfect for a spring or rustic wedding.  The bridesmaid bouquet is a smaller, fun version of the larger bouquet.  It uses the same peony stems and mixes in a new peach color in roses accented by baby’s breath.  The boutonnieres keep it traditional and simple with white rose buds and baby’s breath.

These arrangements work with slight variations in colors and flowers but the underlying style remains the same to create  beautiful, fresh wedding flower arrangements.
