Out of The Box Bouquet

I saw this photo on today and can't get over how gorgeous this bouquet is (not to mention the dress and die for!).  This was created by a group of of L.A. called

This just got me thinking about choosing a bouquet that is colorful and different from all of the whites and ivories that we tend to see walking down the aisle.  Why not add a bit of flare, sass, and color to the mix?  It shows so much style and energy and will really liven up your look.  This bride opted for peonies and roses above all, and topped it off with a fabulous peacock blue bow.  LOVE!  Other great flowers to choose for color include calla lillies, ranunculus, lysianthus, freesia, tulips, and delphinium.  Hypericum berries are also a great way to get a pop of green in the arrangement, and they add wonderful texture too.

Get creative and colorful with your bouquet!  Just because you are wearing white, doesn't mean to you have to carry it, too.
