Your wedding is getting closer and one of the questions on your mind is what color should you choose for your bridal bouquet? Traditional bridal bouquets have always been pastel colors such as pink or lavender. White and ivory were common as well. But today, wedding bouquets can be a lot more colorful. Choice is no longer limited to the color or type of flowers that are used for the bouquet.
White, Cream and Ivory flowers are the perfect colors to choose for any winter wedding, although they really can be used for any season. They symbolize innocence and purity. Some flowers that can be naturally found in those colors include roses, lily-of-the-valley, hydrangea, peony, chrysanthemum, jasmine, orchid and gardenia.

Mixed Color bouquets are no longer a thing of the past. A bride can mix and match colors to suit her personal preference without it meaning anything more to her than “I like it”. Colors can be pastel or bold, complimentary or contrasting. A bouquet can contain many different flower types and colors and can be traditional or modern in nature.
