Bridal bouquet

Red and white bridal bouquet

The bride’s bou­quet in prepa­ra­tions for the wed­ding is giv­en atten­tion along with the dress and hair­style. This is a tra­di­tion­al wed­ding attribute with which the new­ly­wed appears before the groom and guests, and at the end of the cel­e­bra­tion throws it into the crowd of unmar­ried friends. The one who catch­es the bou­quet will be the next to mar­ry.

Accord­ing to the old tra­di­tion, the groom was engaged in buy­ing flow­ers for the future wife. But mod­ern brides have changed the course of events, pre­fer­ring to choose and order a bou­quet on their own. After all, flow­ers should be in har­mo­ny with the wed­ding dress, and you can’t show his groom before the wed­ding. The faith­ful are offered only to pay and bring a bou­quet from a flower salon. He hands it to the bride, and the tra­di­tion is con­sid­ered respect­ed.

Symbolism of color

Each flower and col­or in the bride’s bou­quet has a spe­cif­ic mean­ing and mes­sage. Hav­ing picked up the right com­po­si­tion, the new­ly­wed not only demon­strates her taste, but also tells her groom about her feel­ings.


White col­or is often the basis of mul­ti-col­or bou­quets. Since it sym­bol­izes puri­ty and integri­ty, sin­cer­i­ty and fideli­ty. Snow-white flow­ers are often cho­sen by young brides and lovers of wed­ding clas­sics. It looks very gen­tle in com­bi­na­tion with arti­fi­cial pearls, sil­ver but­ter­flies, rhine­stones and satin rib­bons. Match­es with the entire col­or palette. Looks advan­ta­geous with pas­tel shades and very impres­sive with con­trast­ing col­ors.

Per­fect­ly har­mo­nizes with the white fab­ric of the wed­ding dress. Allows any form and degree of splen­dor. By tra­di­tion, it promis­es a cloud­less fam­i­ly life and speaks of the spot­less rep­u­ta­tion of the bride.


Red col­or is the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of pas­sion and unquench­able spark between lovers. He speaks of the ardor of the new­ly­wed’s feel­ings, of her inten­tion to give her future hus­band a whole range of vivid emo­tions. The choice of sen­su­al and assertive girls who are used to get­ting their way in the name of love. The tra­di­tion endows the red col­or in the bride’s bou­quet with the pow­er of seduc­tion and the mag­ic of end­less attrac­tion between the young.

The com­bi­na­tion of white and red flow­ers in the wed­ding com­po­si­tion looks very impres­sive and sug­gests that sin­cere love for the cho­sen one burns with feel­ings and promis­es him many years of ten­der­ness and pas­sion­ate affec­tion. This is the har­mo­ny of all the best that real mutu­al love promis­es. And the most fre­quent choice of brides of all ages and reli­gions.

Which brides are suitable?

A red and white wed­ding bou­quet will suit a young and pur­pose­ful bride. This is an eman­ci­pat­ed ver­sion of a mod­ern flo­ral arrange­ment for those who want to be the cen­ter of atten­tion at their event. It looks chic in wed­ding pho­tos and enlivens even a strict clas­sic out­fit with­out frills in cut and jew­el­ry.

Look­ing close­ly at the red and white com­bi­na­tion, you should think about how to sup­port the red col­or in the over­all wed­ding look. It can be any bright red details, such as a belt, shoes, hand­bag or lip make­up. Red stones in the jew­el­ry of the bride and groom look favor­ably against the back­ground of a white dress and a red and white bou­quet. Rubies and gar­nets in this ver­sion are the best brides­maids.

The advan­tage of this choice of flower arrange­ment is that the com­bi­na­tion of these flow­ers in dif­fer­ent pro­por­tions allows you to cre­ate a com­plete­ly indi­vid­ual com­po­si­tion. It can look like a reflec­tion of a mod­est and sen­si­tive nature or a strong-willed and bright per­son­al­i­ty who knows how to love pas­sion­ate­ly and devot­ed­ly.

With the help of dif­fer­ent plants, the bou­quet can be assem­bled in any vari­ant and var­i­ous forms. For a wed­ding, they order round bou­quets of white flow­ers, the stems of which are wrapped with a scar­let rib­bon. Or lush red flow­ers of noble vari­eties framed by field white rel­a­tives with a white lace bow.

For each new­ly­wed, florists will be able to choose the option that will be wor­thy of her beau­ty and empha­size all the charm of the image of the bride.

Many girls pre­fer to col­lect a bou­quet for their own wed­ding in per­son. Observ­ing all the sub­tleties of col­or bal­ance and har­mo­nious com­bi­na­tion with the rest of the para­pher­na­lia, beau­ti­ful and unusu­al com­po­si­tions are obtained.

Choice of colors and ideas for compositions

Bou­quets in a red and white com­bi­na­tion are good because they can be sup­ple­ment­ed not only with flow­ers, but also with rowan berries, wild ros­es and bright red leaves in the autumn sea­son. The gifts of autumn, fall­en from the maple and vibur­num twigs, will per­fect­ly con­vey the sea­son­al mood of the wed­ding. And sum­mer brides bold­ly add sea­son­al red fruits to their bou­quets. Most often in arti­fi­cial imi­ta­tion, but both fresh straw­ber­ries and cur­rants have the right to take pride of place in the bou­quet.

Choos­ing the com­po­nents of a flower arrange­ment for a wed­ding is not easy. All ele­ments must be formed into an impec­ca­ble shape, suit­able for the style and style of the dress and the impec­ca­ble appear­ance of the bride. Flow­ers should suit her not only exter­nal­ly, but also in aro­ma, because they will accom­pa­ny the girl all day. The mean­ing of the flow­ers in the bou­quet should fit the mean­ing of the cel­e­bra­tion. With a flower arrange­ment and a com­bi­na­tion of shades, you can demon­strate your atti­tude to the cho­sen one, because each type of plant is a spe­cial sym­bol.

Extrav­a­gant natures choose exot­ic flow­ers and an unusu­al shape of a bou­quet. A bold addi­tion to the unusu­al com­po­si­tion — fern leaves, gyp­sophi­la, bergras.


The clas­sic of red and white ros­es always attracts atten­tion. Rose is the favorite of the wed­ding bou­quet, loved for what is con­sid­ered a rec­og­nized sym­bol of true love. This queen of flow­ers is grown in a hun­dred shades, and every girl on earth has her favorite. Scar­let ros­es are the choice of pas­sion­ate lovers, pale red ones are pre­ferred by gen­tle dream­ers, cream ros­es are roman­tic touchy, white ones are sin­cere and faith­ful. Such a bou­quet is an orna­ment in itself, and does not need decor. But if you make it in the yin-yang style, then pearls or rhine­stones look beau­ti­ful on the bor­der of flow­ers. Sil­ver and gold will com­ple­ment the com­po­si­tion and bring it to per­fec­tion.

More painstak­ing work and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the florist requires a com­bi­na­tion of ros­es with oth­er flow­ers:

  • orchids;
  • alstroe­me­ria;
  • peonies;
  • lilies.


A red and white style wed­ding is per­fect for a lush bou­quet of peonies. Del­i­cate buds obe­di­ent­ly take a round shape, and the com­po­si­tion looks ele­gant and airy. The flower is a sym­bol of eter­nal love and self­less­ness. When the bride receives such a bou­quet from the groom, it can be regard­ed as a desire to throw the whole world at her feet.


Large buds are lit­er­al­ly sat­u­rat­ed with strong ener­gy of warm feel­ings. Hav­ing com­bined white and red flow­ers in a bou­quet, I want to add some bright green­ery to them. This is a very emo­tion­al mix for a cheer­ful new­ly­wed. Anemones can be accom­pa­nied by hydrangea and bru­nia.


This flower has recent­ly appeared more and more often in wed­ding bou­quets, being a sym­bol of fem­i­nin­i­ty. Red and white com­po­si­tions are no excep­tion. Callas are select­ed in dif­fer­ent shades, but it is not nec­es­sary to make a mono-bou­quet of red and white callas. Snow-white, trust­ing­ly open buds har­mo­nious­ly look with red tulips and scar­let ros­es. A weight­less organ­za rib­bon will com­plete the com­po­si­tion, giv­ing it mys­tery and sophis­ti­ca­tion. In such com­po­si­tions, tall green spikelets look unusu­al­ly beau­ti­ful.

mono bouquet

A mod­est mono-bou­quet can be cre­at­ed as a geo­met­ric com­po­si­tion of amaryl­lis, show­ing the bride as a girl with char­ac­ter, dynam­ic and whole, endowed with her own opin­ion and taste. The hydrangea, pop­u­lar among Japan­ese women, is not infe­ri­or in cre­ativ­i­ty. Bou­quets with it are made minia­ture and are not over­loaded with dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments.

Inter­est­ing ideas are obtained using ger­beras. These are close rel­a­tives of daisies, which are also per­ceived as a sym­bol of puri­ty and true love. And these con­cepts are always at the head of mar­riage.

Bouquet design and decor

Hav­ing decid­ed on the com­po­nents of the bou­quet, you have to arrange them into a styl­ish com­po­si­tion. To do this, the col­or scheme is care­ful­ly select­ed, the need for green­ery in the lay­out is con­sid­ered. It is allowed to use del­i­cate buds and con­tra­dic­to­ry dried flow­ers in wed­ding com­po­si­tions. Limo­ni­um, daisies, gar­den daisies are mod­est flow­ers, but in com­bi­na­tion with red ele­ments they will sparkle in a new way. Suit­able for a chaste bride for a Provence style wed­ding. They are also cho­sen by sim­ple-mind­ed and socia­ble girls who do not like pom­pos­i­ty and kitsch.

Bou­quets with freesias look so airy that they are not weighed down by a jew­el­ry brooch, pearl threads, vel­vet rib­bons or dec­o­ra­tive drag­on­flies. Dec­o­rat­ing the nat­ur­al nat­u­ral­ness of bou­quets with arti­fi­cial insects is a pop­u­lar move by florists. Lady­bugs are gor­geous against the white flow­ers. But­ter­flies won­der­ful­ly com­plete the style of a bou­quet of hydrangeas and daisies. Moth­er-of-pearl drag­on­flies are mag­nif­i­cent on callas, and moths are com­plete­ly pic­turesque on any plants.

Com­po­si­tions in white and red tones can be dilut­ed by using blue in the form of a satin rib­bon flow­ing along the petals and envelop­ing the stems of plants. A blue-white-red bou­quet is cho­sen by patri­ot­ic new­ly­weds, who look con­fi­dent­ly into the future of our coun­try. Plus, it’s just the per­fect com­bi­na­tion.

Lovers of a calm style will be pleased with the florist’s deci­sion in the form of a snow-white bou­quet with a scar­let or bur­gundy rib­bon. This is not com­mon­place, because the clas­sics nev­er get bored and nev­er go out of fash­ion.

Pair with dress and accessories

Of course, the choice of bou­quet is made under the dress and acces­sories, and not vice ver­sa. Each style and design of a wed­ding dress will have its own flower arrange­ment. With an exquis­ite expen­sive out­fit embroi­dered with expen­sive rhine­stones and stones, out of the way with a del­i­cate bou­quet of hydrangeas and dec­o­ra­tions with berries and autumn leaves. Lady­bugs and exot­ic plants will look fun­ny against its back­ground. Lux­u­ry is com­bined with vel­vet ros­es and exquis­ite orchids.

Calla lilies and decor in the form of feath­ers and pearl threads will be a great addi­tion to a floor-length dress made of flow­ing satin. Airy chif­fon “asks” a bou­quet of freesias, minia­ture tulips, peony ros­es and frag­ile hyacinths.

The bride’s lace out­fit allows many com­bi­na­tions of col­ors, for exam­ple, eustoma, peonies, daisies and even asters. It is dif­fi­cult not to pick up a bou­quet for it, since lace is a uni­ver­sal mat­ter.

Exot­ic plants are loved by wed­ding florists for their com­bi­na­tion with mod­ern mini-length dress­es or asym­met­ri­cal dress­es that cov­er the legs in the back and bold­ly expose them in front. Frank min­is are cho­sen for wed­dings on the islands or with con­tin­u­a­tion in night­clubs. This is the choice of young and incen­di­ary brides who will appre­ci­ate the unusu­al bou­quet on mer­it.
