Bridal bouquet

Burgundy bouquet for the bride: features of the choice of flowers and design ideas for the composition

Choos­ing a wed­ding bou­quet is an impor­tant rit­u­al for every bride. You always want to pick up some­thing extra­or­di­nary, attract­ing atten­tion, but nev­er­the­less fits per­fect­ly into the con­cept of the cel­e­bra­tion. A lit­tle com­pli­cat­ed, but insane­ly spec­tac­u­lar is a com­po­si­tion of bur­gundy flow­ers. If you choose the right col­or com­bi­na­tions, cre­ate a har­mo­nious shape and make sure that the flow­ers and the dress form a sin­gle whole, you will be able to cre­ate a bright and mem­o­rable image that will delight every­one around you.

Symbolism of color

The col­or of bur­gundy is still con­sid­ered to be derived from red, so some of the sym­bol­ism of the shade was inher­it­ed, and some turned out to be indi­vid­ual. First of all, bur­gundy sym­bol­izes wealth and pros­per­i­ty, even lux­u­ry. That is why it is most often found in the homes of wealthy peo­ple. In addi­tion, bur­gundy encour­ages active action, con­cen­trat­ed work and focus on the main thing.

Psy­chol­o­gists say that this shade is cho­sen by very con­fi­dent peo­ple.who are not afraid of dif­fi­cul­ties and obsta­cles. They tend to be classy, ​​ele­gant and grace­ful. How­ev­er, exces­sive use of bur­gundy can lead to some blues and pes­simistic thought­ful­ness, so when choos­ing a bou­quet, you should not use the same shade for a dress, only for acces­sories and accents.

Which bride is suitable?

It is worth men­tion­ing that a bur­gundy bou­quet would be much more appro­pri­ate for autumn or win­ter wed­dings. Its warm shades have a real­ly “warm­ing” prop­er­ty and will look great on nat­ur­al pho­to shoots. It will suit both frag­ile and tall girls — only in the first case in the form of a bun­dle, and in the sec­ond — an ele­gant ball.

Combination with other colors

By itself, the com­po­si­tion in bur­gundy tones looks great with­out third-par­ty addi­tions, but if you want to com­ple­ment a rich col­or with some­thing, then the choice should be approached very care­ful­ly.

  • A white and bur­gundy bou­quet will imme­di­ate­ly catch the eye of all those present, com­bin­ing pas­sion and inno­cence. How­ev­er, its use is pos­si­ble only with a pure white out­fit or dec­o­rat­ed with small bur­gundy inserts. All acces­sories must be exclu­sive­ly of these two tones.
  • Bor­deaux can also be com­bined with beige: from peach to cream. This com­po­si­tion looks just as bright, but much more nat­ur­al.
  • If an aged cou­ple is to be mar­ried, then bur­gundy flow­ers should be com­ple­ment­ed with ele­gant pur­ple ones.
  • Wine flow­ers look good paired with sand and yel­low plants, such as chrysan­the­mums and ranun­cu­lus.
  • Hydrangeas are usu­al­ly cho­sen from blue flow­ers, and iris­es from pur­ple ones.
  • By the way, if you think it over well, you will be able to suc­cess­ful­ly com­bine bur­gundy with brown shades. As addi­tions, twigs, large leaves, feath­ers, cin­na­mon sticks, berries, lace, pearl strands and oth­er details are select­ed.

Choosing the right flowers

  • A clas­sic plant for a bou­quet is a rose. Bur­gundy com­po­si­tion always attracts atten­tion and goes well with most dress­es. By the way, a bur­gundy rose has sev­er­al shades: it can be wine-col­ored, tend­ing to black or slight­ly pur­ple, so you can choose the most suit­able tone with this flower. How­ev­er, florists rec­om­mend giv­ing pref­er­ence to the clas­sics, as maroon is a lit­tle pes­simistic, and light sym­bol­izes a fast-paced rela­tion­ship. Bur­gundy ros­es either form a mono-bou­quet, or are com­bined with con­trast­ing snow-white ros­es — a sym­bol of puri­ty and self­less­ness.
  • Bur­gundy lilies are no less spec­tac­u­lar, in addi­tion, they have a tru­ly enchant­i­ng aro­ma. This flower sym­bol­izes fem­i­nin­i­ty and sophis­ti­ca­tion, so it will suit roman­tic and slight­ly mys­te­ri­ous natures. By the way, the plant is very per­sis­tent, which means that it can ade­quate­ly show itself both at a hot July cer­e­mo­ny and at a snowy win­ter one.

Bor­deaux lilies are used either in mono com­po­si­tion or in com­bi­na­tion with lilies of oth­er col­ors. So, bur­gundy buds are com­bined with red, brindle or white, cre­at­ing com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent moods. The bou­quet is tied with a con­trast­ing rib­bon.

  • Oth­er bur­gundy flow­ers are orchids, which are usu­al­ly sold in high-end florist shops. You can pick up both mono­phon­ic buds, and those whose petals are paint­ed white and cov­ered with bur­gundy spots. Again, both mono-bou­quets and com­bined with ros­es and lilies look good. In addi­tion, bright exot­ic flow­ers are har­mo­nious­ly com­ple­ment­ed by light neu­tral hydrangeas or alstroe­me­rias.
  • We must not for­get about callas, which are small in size and rich in col­or. They are either used in a “pure” form, or com­bined with snow-white buds, or with orchids and ros­es of suit­able shades.
  • Final­ly, bloom­ing bur­gundy tulips, iris­es and oth­er vari­eties of flow­ers are suit­able for the cer­e­mo­ny. These flow­ers can be used for the cen­ter of the com­po­si­tion and frame them with buds of adja­cent shades.

Bouquet design and decor

Com­po­si­tion for a wed­ding in bur­gundy style will fit per­fect­ly into a clas­sic cer­e­mo­ny. Such a bou­quet will also go well with a retro hol­i­day, espe­cial­ly if details of a sim­i­lar shade are used in the inte­ri­or decor. Typ­i­cal­ly, such a bou­quet is dec­o­rat­ed with a rib­bon, dec­o­rat­ed with a vin­tage brooch or strings of pearls.

By com­ple­ment­ing the bur­gundy flow­ers with yel­low and orange buds, you can cre­ate a styl­ish acces­so­ry for a boho wed­ding. This sug­gests that, by cor­rect­ly com­bin­ing the details, it is pos­si­ble to sat­is­fy the require­ments of any cer­e­mo­ny.

Pair with dress and accessories

If a mono-bou­quet is made from bur­gundy flow­ers, it is impor­tant that the bride’s dress has a detail of the same col­or. For exam­ple, it can be either trim, or a belt, or jew­el­ry, the main thing is not to over­do it. From the same ele­ments, a bou­ton­niere for the groom should be made, or from flow­ers of a sim­i­lar shade.

Rec­om­mend­ed shades of the dress in gen­er­al are pas­tel: white, light pink, pow­der, ivory or sim­i­lar. A red or bur­gundy out­fit is unlike­ly to fit such a bou­quet. You will either have to change the flow­ers in gen­er­al, or dilute them with white and orange shades.

There are four main approach­es to com­pil­ing a bur­gundy bou­quet. Either this is a mono-bou­quet con­sist­ing of buds of the same col­or, or it is a bunch of flow­ers with sev­er­al shades of bur­gundy, or a con­trast­ing com­po­si­tion, or a gra­di­ent com­bi­na­tion, for exam­ple, when bur­gundy turns into red or orange. For acces­sories of the bride, which are in the same set with a bur­gundy bou­quet, it is rec­om­mend­ed to use lilac, yel­low and blue shades. The groom can be lim­it­ed to a bou­ton­niere and a match­ing tie.

When doing make­up, be sure to make up your lips with wine lip­stick. In the event that such a deci­sion does not cor­re­spond to the col­or type of the bride, the lips remain nat­ur­al, but the eyes stand out bright­ly. Also, a wine man­i­cure is a good idea. As for the groom’s suit, it can also be dyed bur­gundy, but then it needs to be com­ple­ment­ed with a blue tie. Anoth­er appro­pri­ate option is a blue suit with a milk shirt.

Tips from stylists and florists

Choos­ing a shade of bur­gundy for a fes­tive bou­quet, it is impor­tant to fol­low some rules:

  • You should not delve into maroon tones, because for some peo­ple they are asso­ci­at­ed with some­thing sad, for exam­ple, with­er­ing;
  • It is bet­ter for young brides to dilute the way­ward col­or with oth­er shades, while mono-bou­quets are suit­able for mature new­ly­weds;
  • The bou­quet should be com­bined with the bride’s dress, and with her acces­sories, and with the gen­er­al col­or scheme of the hol­i­day, and with the theme of the wed­ding.

When a bou­quet is made up of sev­er­al vari­eties of plants, then one large flower is cho­sen as an accent, and small buds are placed around it. Flow­ers, by the way, are rec­om­mend­ed to be select­ed accord­ing to the sea­son, but remem­ber that excep­tions are also ide­al, for exam­ple, field crops with lilies or ros­es. The shape of the bou­quet can be an ordi­nary ball, be oblong or some unex­pect­ed and exot­ic. Round will suit petite brides, cas­cad­ing — tall and slen­der, and free — any­one, even preg­nant ladies. The lat­ter, by the way, implies nat­u­ral­ness and a lit­tle “dis­arrange­ment”.

When col­lect­ing a bou­quet, it is impor­tant to mon­i­tor its weight: an over­weight com­po­si­tion will be a big prob­lem for a frag­ile bride. It is also nec­es­sary to keep track of the com­bi­na­tion of aro­mas — the smells should not be too strong and har­mo­nious­ly com­ple­ment each oth­er.

Beautiful examples

A bou­quet of bur­gundy ros­es and sev­er­al oth­er del­i­cate pink flow­ers looks very impres­sive. It should be sup­ple­ment­ed with berries of a sim­i­lar shade and, pos­si­bly, a few sprigs of green­ery. The fin­ished com­po­si­tion is tied with a wide match­ing rib­bon and com­ple­ment­ed by an ele­gant dec­o­ra­tion, for exam­ple, a cop­per brooch with a stone.

Bright, but at the same time del­i­cate, will be a com­po­si­tion of lush wine peonies, sev­er­al spray white ros­es, red berries and green leaves. After the legs of the plants are short­ened to the desired size, it is nec­es­sary to tie the bou­quet with a suit­able cord.

A mem­o­rable deci­sion will be the cre­ation of a bou­quet of bur­gundy tulips, pur­ple callas, del­i­cate pas­tel ros­es and light green twigs.
