Traditionally, brides carried chaffs of wheat to invoke fertility and celebrate the joy of marriage. Today, the bridal bouquet still symbolizes beauty and the ritual of wedding. A traditional bouquet will always complement the gown – avoid excessive ribbons, ties, doilies or the like which will undermine (or overwhelm) your carefully chosen wedding dress.
The bouquet can serve as a noteworthy accessory; make it extraordinary through choice of flowers and unusual color, not unnecessary frills. I love deep orange, black-red or purple against a traditional white wedding gown. Finally, remember to taper the stems and keep the tips visible otherwise the bouquet looks unnatural and too heavy for the delicate look of the bride. - XO, Vera
The Californian sun on the Pacific waves was the picture-perfect background for Sonya and Eric’s wedding. With a shared love of the ocean, they chose a venue with a breathtaking view overlooking the water that doubled as the perfect backdrop. The ivory peonies and the neutral accents of the elegant celebration emphasized the sheer beauty of the Los Angeles coast. See more of this vibrant, coastal affair at Vera Unveiled.
