Bridal bouquet of chrysanthemums: the choice of colors and design nuances

Many girls dream of their wed­ding since child­hood, imag­in­ing in detail what the bride’s dress will be like. When the time comes for the cel­e­bra­tion, it becomes clear that, in addi­tion to the dress, you need to take care of a bunch of dif­fer­ent things. These are shoes, and acces­sories, and var­i­ous bou­ton­nieres. Do not for­get about the bride’s wed­ding bou­quet. A beau­ti­ful and del­i­cate bou­quet will com­ple­ment the image of the bride, give it a spe­cial har­mo­ny and grace. A wed­ding bou­quet of chrysan­the­mums will look very gen­tle.

Golden gift of autumn

To be the most beau­ti­ful and inim­itable at the wed­ding, the bride needs to pre­pare in advance for this event. Of no small impor­tance is the selec­tion of a wed­ding bou­quet. When choos­ing flow­ers, you should pay atten­tion to chrysan­the­mums. To empha­size a wed­ding acces­so­ry, to give it the nec­es­sary accent, you can use a bou­quet made in a cer­tain range.

It is worth telling what the mean­ing of this flower is, what the chrysan­the­mum sym­bol­izes. The first men­tion of this flower came to us from Asia. Accord­ing to leg­end, the evil and cru­el emper­or want­ed at all costs to get him­self a plant that would make him immor­tal. But only a brave man with a pure and kind heart could find him. The emper­or wait­ed for a long time when this longed-for gift would be brought to him, but he did not wait and died. Sub­se­quent­ly, this amaz­ing plant was called chrysan­the­mum, or gold­en flower.

The fact is that ini­tial­ly in nature there was only a yel­low flower. Lat­er, breed­ers man­aged to bring out a huge num­ber of vari­eties of chrysan­the­mums with dif­fer­ent shades and flower shapes. It is not for noth­ing that this beau­ti­ful plant is respect­ed and revered in every way in the East. In Japan, there is even a spe­cial order of the Chrysan­the­mum, which is award­ed to the emper­or as a sign of the deep­est respect. Cur­rent­ly, there are about 10,000 species of this plant in the world. Accord­ing to the leg­end, when the bride choos­es this flower, this union will be strong, as heav­en bless­es him. Chrysan­the­mum embod­ies pow­er, resis­tance to obsta­cles, for­ti­tude.

When choos­ing a wed­ding bou­quet, it is impor­tant not only to decide on its col­or, but also to choose the type of flower. They can be sin­gle-head­ed and bushy. The sin­gle-head­ed flower is a chrysan­the­mum on a stem. Most often it has a large round shape. Bush plants con­sist of buds, they usu­al­ly have a small com­pact size. Chrysan­the­mums of both types can be ter­ry, semi-dou­ble, tubu­lar or spoon-shaped.

When choos­ing com­po­si­tions, it is impor­tant to con­sid­er what the bride’s out­fit will be like, her char­ac­ter. A bou­quet of chrysan­the­mums will set off the wed­ding dress in the best pos­si­ble way, empha­siz­ing its ten­der­ness. It should be not­ed that this flower sym­bol­izes endurance and a strong char­ac­ter. When choos­ing a bou­quet for a wed­ding, you need to con­sid­er that its shade has a dif­fer­ent mean­ing.

  • If a bou­quet is cho­sen for the bride, con­sist­ing entire­ly of white flow­ers, it will sym­bol­ize the puri­ty and puri­ty of the new­ly­wed.
  • In the event that a girl strives to be a leader and has a strong char­ac­ter, it is bet­ter for her to opt for a bou­quet with red flow­ers.
  • A pur­ple bou­quet can tell a lot about the cul­prit of the event. Such shades are cho­sen by indi­vid­ual natures who do not want to be like every­one else, strive to stand out from the crowd.
  • If there are shades of blue in the bou­quet, this may indi­cate care­less­ness and joy. A bou­quet of blue flow­ers looks very impres­sive.
  • A bou­quet of yel­low chrysan­the­mums is cho­sen by cheer­ful natures who see the pos­i­tive in every­thing.
  • Often, brides choose a pink shade for their wed­ding bou­quet, which speaks of romance and love. Such flow­ers will undoubt­ed­ly be the dec­o­ra­tion of this impor­tant cel­e­bra­tion. They will become a sym­bol of nascent love.

Mono-bou­quets of chrysan­the­mums can be mono­chro­mat­ic or con­sist of two or more col­ors. At the same time, a com­bi­na­tion of sin­gle-head­ed and spray chrysan­the­mums will be good in one bou­quet. Com­bi­na­tions of these species in dif­fer­ent shades will be espe­cial­ly impres­sive.

Combinations with other colors

An ide­al option for a wed­ding is a com­bi­na­tion of chrysan­the­mums with oth­er flow­ers. A bou­quet will turn out very beau­ti­ful if it con­tains ger­beras, ros­es, alstroe­me­rias. If sin­gle-head­ed chrysan­the­mums are includ­ed in the bridal bou­quet, they should be com­bined with ger­beras. In this form, the bou­quet will look very ele­gant, and the com­bi­na­tions of dif­fer­ent col­ors in the com­po­si­tion will suc­cess­ful­ly com­ple­ment each oth­er.

A bou­quet for the bride with ros­es will look no less styl­ish and ele­gant. This flower in itself is very self-suf­fi­cient, but in com­bi­na­tion with each oth­er, each plant will empha­size the charm of the neigh­bor­ing one. You can choose these species in one col­or or choose them in dif­fer­ent col­ors. Each option is beau­ti­ful in its own way and will per­fect­ly com­ple­ment the charm­ing image of the bride. A styl­ish bou­quet can be select­ed from flow­ers of dif­fer­ent sizes. The com­bi­na­tion of large chrysan­the­mums and small dec­o­ra­tive ros­es in one bou­quet will be a very good option for a wed­ding com­po­si­tion.

You will get a rather refined and col­or­ful bou­quet of chrysan­the­mums and alstroe­me­rias. Many peo­ple fell in love with these cute flow­ers of dif­fer­ent shades, sim­i­lar to small lilies, for their beau­ty and unpre­ten­tious­ness. The bou­quet will per­fect­ly com­bine chrysan­the­mums, alstroe­me­ria, large chamomile, fern leaves. Such a com­po­si­tion will not be left with­out atten­tion, as it looks very solemn and ele­gant.

For the bride, a com­bi­na­tion of white with a dif­fer­ent col­or will be an excel­lent option in choos­ing shades for a bou­quet. In this case, the com­po­si­tion will look very gen­tle, giv­ing the image of the bride a spe­cial mood. The com­bi­na­tion of more con­trast­ing shades will also be appro­pri­ate at the wed­ding. The com­bi­na­tion of blue with pink, red with yel­low will add orig­i­nal­i­ty to the bou­quet.

Chrysan­the­mums, which are dec­o­rat­ed in a spher­i­cal shape, will look very beau­ti­ful. A spray chrysan­the­mum will look great if it is assem­bled into a hemi­spher­i­cal shape. An exquis­ite and at the same time unusu­al bou­quet for the bride will turn out if you make a flower arrange­ment in a wick­er bas­ket.

In addi­tion, chrysan­the­mums will look good in com­bi­na­tion with peonies, ger­beras, hydrangeas, car­na­tions. Dec­o­ra­tion of a wed­ding bou­quet can be dec­o­ra­tive beads, berries, arti­fi­cial but­ter­flies, tree branch­es.

Is it easy to do it yourself?

The wed­ding bou­quet should be part of the over­all com­po­si­tion. We should not for­get about bou­ton­nieres, which are attached to the lapel of the jack­et of the groom and wit­ness­es. You can either make a bou­quet and bou­ton­nieres on your own or seek help from spe­cial­ists. Undoubt­ed­ly, pro­fes­sion­al crafts­men and florists will be able to select the nec­es­sary ele­ments for a flower arrange­ment, choose pack­ag­ing, addi­tion­al dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments.

A hand-made com­po­si­tion may not look so chic, but it will con­tain so much hard work, kind­ness and love that such a bou­quet will not replace the store ver­sion. It is impor­tant that the col­or scheme match­es the dress of the bride and groom. If a themed wed­ding or cel­e­bra­tion is being held, where this or that col­or is nego­ti­at­ed in advance, you need to choose the col­or tone that match­es the event.

How to save flowers?

For flow­ers to please the eye for a long time, you need to take care of this in advance and take the nec­es­sary mea­sures:

  • before plac­ing the stems in water, you need to remove the low­er leaves;
  • in order for the bou­quet to last longer, you need to choose opened flow­ers;
  • chrysan­the­mums will stand longer in a cool and dark room;
  • flow­ers will last longer if the water in the con­tain­er is changed reg­u­lar­ly;
  • if the bou­quet is a lit­tle wilt­ed, its stems can be alter­nate­ly held in cold and hot water for sev­er­al min­utes;
  • in the event that some flow­ers have wilt­ed, they can be removed from the bou­quet with­out vio­lat­ing the com­po­si­tion;
  • the wed­ding bou­quet should be pro­tect­ed from drafts.

When choos­ing flow­ers, you should exam­ine their stems. They should not be dry or bro­ken. You also need to pay atten­tion to the leaves and the flower itself. Only if there are no defects and dam­age on them, you can build a beau­ti­ful wed­ding com­po­si­tion.
