I recently ordered my flowers. I LOVE them, however, darling daddy expressed some surprise that the bouquet I am carrying is not white (it’s actually a mix of fall colored roses). I’d never even considered white, but apparently it is, or was, tradition. I’m not going to change, but it kind of made me curious as to the stats regarding bridal bouquet color. What color is (or was, if you’re hitched) your bouquet?

I think white is a traditional color, but most people do colorful bouquets now. Personally, I like the look of a bright bridal bouquet contrasted with white bridesmaid bouquets, but my florist talked me out of it. The colorful bouquets really pop against the white wedding dress, so I think what you’re doing is perfect. My bouquet is going to be a mix of pink, purple, and white.

I gave my florist this photo as inspiration for my bouquet.

I was married in 1995 and mine was pink–lots of weddings we went to around that time had colored bouquets 🙂

I’m going with mostly white, not out of any tradition, but because all of our flowers will be mostly white…our wedding is in winter and our colors are sapphire blue, silver, and white.

I was going to do bright pink. But I have changed my mind, I love the traditional white rose bouquet. I am having 3 dozen open white roses for my bouquet and I love it, I think its so romantic

I am actually thinking about doing a white rose and feather combo, either that or do something really different and do a feather and crystal bouquet. I like really different things, so I figure that doing something out of the ordinary.
Here is a picture:

My bouquet has all burgundy calla lilies, no greenery. Like this one:

I was originally intent on an ivory bouquet with wine accent flowers until I pondered that it would look washed out against my ivory dress, so I reversed it. Now my bouquet will stand out against my dress as it is mostly wine-colored flowers with ivory accents, and the bridesmaids are the opposite (wine-colored dresses with mostly-ivory bouquets with wine-colored accents).

@Littlest Birds – I decided the same thing, but I’m pretty dead set on having 1 color for all the bouquets – I like the monochromatic look.
So for me, I’ll be having the wine/burgundy bouquet, while all the bridesmaids will have ivory flowers against their burgundy dresses.
