During summer, you can create a truly impressive bridal bouquet wedding by decorating it with pearls and rhinestones or adding some of the flowers to your hair or to the dress torso. Satin ribbons, lace and chiffon are popular fabrics used in the bridal bouquet as well. 

The bouquet you choose to keep on your wedding day is one of the most important aspects of your appearance. There are dozens of different styles to create the bouquet that will complement your style with numerous combinations of colors and different flowers. Before you go to your florist to discuss the form and composition you wish for your bridal bouquet, take some pictures and ideas to find the perfect combination. It would be good to keep with you a photo of your dress to show the florist, so that he has an idea of the rest of your appearance. Always keep in mind that the bouquet you choose should reflect your personality and should not be something standard or indifferent.

The bridal bouquet you choose should complement your dress perfectly, therefore if you wear a dress with simple line search for a richer bouquet, and vice versa. Try to choose local flowers as they are fresh and have not suffered from transport. They also usually come at better prices and a greater variety compared to the exotic or imported ones. 

Some tips to consider are that calla lilies and orchids make the perfect bridal bouquet for taller brides, while lilies of the valley and roses combined with smaller bouquets are more suitable for petite brides. It is also said that camellias and gardenias match satin and brocade dresses.
