How to Choose the Perfect Bridal Bouquet

Knowing how to choose the perfect bridal bouquet can make all the difference in styling your wedding day look. It can be daunting to decide on the ideal bouquet that will complement your wedding dress. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with some helpful tips from a Cincinnati wedding florist to make your decision a little easier. Consider Your Dress Style When it comes to selecting the perfect bouquet, your dress style is a crucial factor. If you have a ball gown wedding dress, a larger bouquet with a cascading shape will be a great choice. For a more relaxed dress style, a smaller and simpler bouquet will work better. Think About Your Wedding Theme Your wedding theme should also be a consideration in your bouquet choice. If you have a rustic wedding theme, a bouquet with natural elements such as wildflowers and greenery will complement your theme. If you have a more classic or formal wedding theme, a bouquet with roses or peonies will give off an elegant vibe. Consider the Colors The colors in your bouquet should complement your wedding dress and tie in with your overall wedding color scheme. For example, if you have a neutral or pastel wedding design, a bouquet with pastel colors will work well. If you have a wedding design with bold colors or patterns, a bouquet with complementary colors will balance out your look. Think About Your Personal Style Your personal style is another crucial factor when choosing your bouquet. If you’re a romantic at heart, a bouquet with roses and peonies will fit your style. If you prefer a more modern look, a bouquet with a sleek and structured design will work best. Make an Informed Decision Knowing how to choose the perfect bridal bouquet to complement your wedding is […]

Colorful Wedding Floral Inspiration at The Brightside

Colorful wedding floral design adds a stunning and unique touch to any wedding celebration. At The Brightside, this type of design can truly shine since it’s a neutral space that can be decorated in so many different ways. We are excited to share some colorful wedding floral inspiration! For this editorial photo shoot, we designed a brightly colored hanging installation to float above the head table. Colorful florals adorned the center of the table, like a dimensional table runner made of floral arrangements and candles. We also incorporated colorful floral arrangements throughout the venue. The ceremony space was one of our favorite looks. We used a ceremony backdrop with florals woven into it. To tie everything together, we chose flowers that complemented the colors used in the hanging installation. One of the trends we have been seeing for 2023 and 2024 weddings, is more color for wedding floral design. When we designed the florals for this editorial photo shoot, we kept that in mind and filled the space with vibrant colors. We hope you love this colorful wedding floral inspiration as much as we do!

Farm wedding theme

  Year after year the farm wedding is still as strong as ever.  With locations like Canopy Creek Farm, Rolling Meadows Ranch and The Estate at Sunset Farm, our Dayton and Cincinnati brides have more than one option to choose from. This bride choose to include her theme by adding her plaid shirt over her beautiful toulle ball gown.  What a great way to include more of your own personal style to your day.  The shirt was not worn the entire day, but was a little surprise.   Thank you Sarah Babcock Studio for capturing these amazing images.

Classic Blush and Ivory

2016’s trend of blush and ivory wedding flowers is still strong into the 2017 wedding year.  Ohio brides are splitting the trends between the classic floral designs and the loose, organic greenery look.  The greenery look can be described as “lush, bushy and wild.”  But this bride chose beautiful clustered blooms of blush and ivory roses, garden roses and spray roses for her bridal bouquet.  The stems of the bouquet were adorned in wrapped ivory pearls. Thank you Mark Garber Photography for capturing these floral details.

Green centerpieces

Our brides continue to choose greenery as the main theme for their decor and florals.  With only touches of flowers, the greenery creates a romantic base and mood to the arrangements while warming up any room. This bride and groom were in love with the books provided out of her mothers library.  We sat our hand painted/stained table numbers around the arrangement with mixed gold mercury glass votives. Thank you Maxium Photo Studios for capturing our table scape.

Classic white and ivory

  One of our most asked questions about bridal bouquets is “Do brides mostly carry a white/ivory bouquet or carry color?” Our answer is always: we want our brides to choose their bouquet based upon their style and likes. About half of our brides carry a form of a white bouquet and the other half carry a bouquet filled with colors. Is one right or wrong? Of course not, it is 100% up to the bride. Another popular question is “Will the white/ivory flowers match my off white dress?” Our bride above is wearing an off white dress, but her flowers all all shades of white and ivory. We feel that different shades of whites and ivory’s mixed together never clash with an off white or ivory dress. This bride carried a beautiful bouquet of white hydrangeas, ivory roses, white garden roses and white stock. So classic and elegant.

Red, Teal and White

  What a beautiful mixture of reds, light blues and white flowers: Dahlias, Anemonies, Ranuculas, Scabosia pods, Queen annes Lace, Delphinium, Lisianthus and roses. The bride wore two red dahlias in her beautiful long hair instead of a veil or headpiece. Of course, thank you Jenny Haas Photography for the beautiful images!

Babies Breath

  Babies breath has become such a popular choice for brides wanting to achieve the rustic look.  With cost savings and hardiness, babies breath is a top choice for the bride on a budget.  We took the bouquet a little further.  This bridesmaids bouquet is full of big bloom babies breath and mixed with white wax flower.  It is bound by burlap ribbon and pearl pins; a great finishing touch to any outdoor rustic wedding theme.
