Monochromatic is the new “it” trend. Whether you’re coordinating a color palette for a wedding, throwing a bridal shower, getting your engagement photos taken, or doing a photo shoot with your besties, a single-hued flower bouquet can set the perfect backdrop. While we love the power of a single, bold color, how can you pick which palette is right for you? Read on for tips on choosing your color palette according to the occasion:
For a bachelorette party or bridal shower: Generally speaking, a celebration of love and passion is well coordinated with colors of deep red. Red roses, coxcombs, lilies, dahlias, and red berries come together to make a lovely bouquet that signifies commitment. The added bonus of choosing red, besides it being aesthetically pleasing, is that red pairs beautifully with nearly any color outfit you choose! Pair your red bouquets with matching red lipstick or heels!
For a casual photoshoot: If you’re having a photoshoot in an open field adorned with golden hues, for example, an orange flower bouquet makes for a wonderful choice. Orange evokes a sense of creativity, hope, and adventure. Dried orange eucalyptus, neutral colored roses, and alliums pair lovely for a cheerful, glowing arrangement. Pair with a long bohemian dress or a blouse with billowing sleeves for the ultimate rustic look.
For Engagement Photos: Recently engaged? Congratulations! An engagement signifies the beginning of new adventures, so it’s fitting to select a yellow floral arrangement which signifies happiness, spontaneity, and hopefulness. Our favorite blooms for a yellow bouquet include daisies or sunflowers, paired with white dahlias, and yellow roses mixed with ample greenery. Get outdoors and take the pictures in the bright sunshine to complement your bouquet.
For a Wedding: “Something borrowed, something blue” so the saying goes. With that said, it feels as though the obvious choice for a bouquet is blue. Not only that, but blue is said to symbolize faith and loyalty, two qualities at the forefront of every couple’s mind! A variety of hydrangeas, grape hyacinth, and Southern Globethistle come together for a gorgeous and subtle wedding bouquet. Feel free to branch out (no pun intended) and get creative here. Violet colors are equally a great choice as it symbolizes romance and compassion. So, mix similar shades of blue and violet to create an aesthetic color palette that speaks to you.
For Renewing Vows or Birthday Celebrations: Celebrating a milestone anniversary or birthday? Green just might be the perfect color bouquet for you. Hear us out! Billowing eucalyptus stems, rustic pine branches, palm leaves, or a lily as the focal point sets the stage beautifully. Growth, harmony, and dependability are the main vibes that are elicited from a fresh and vibrant green bouquet. Hello, new chapter!
For a casual get-together: Thinking of inviting your girlfriends over for a late-afternoon dinner party? Perhaps feeling compelled to host a small family reunion? Itching to throw the ultimate grilling bash? All hail the pink! Pink isn’t just for girls (or Wednesday’s) anymore! It symbolizes playfulness, understanding, and generosity, which is exactly what every friend and family member should be! Blush pink roses, baby’s breath, light pink lilies, and showstopping berries set the stage for the ultimate pink flower arrangement. Sprinkle in some shades of rose gold and blush pink around to really add class.
