A Bouquet is probably not high on your wedding to-do list, but choosing the wrong wedding bouquet can have a disastrous affect on the way you look. So, make sure you pick the bouquet that will flatter your figure.
If you’re in the early phases of planning your wedding, you might not have even considered what kind of bouquet you want. If, on the other hand, you’re in the latter stages of planning your wedding, you’ll know that choosing a wedding bouquet can be an incredibly difficult task.
Wedding Bouquets Are Basic, Aren’t They?
I know, it sounds simple enough, right? After all, selecting the right wedding bouquet is just a simple matter of finding flowers that suit your wedding gown and bridal party’s color scheme, choosing between real or silk, finding a match with the style and theme of the wedding, and selecting a bouquet that will flatter your figure.
Yes, believe it or not, the bouquet can add that extra bit of glamour and top of your outfit perfectly, or it can accentuate all those features that you’d rather kept hidden. So, the bouquet business is rather trickier than many brides bargain for.
What Do You Want — A Wedding Bouquet?
First things first, remember it’s your wedding and your opinion and tastes have to trump everybody else’s — with the possible exception of the groom-to-be, but he’s unlikely to take much of an interest where floral décor is concerned.
So, despite the fact that the world and her husband may be offering you advice on what color, style, and type of flower should be included in your bouquet, make sure you don’t let yourself be swayed by their advice. By all means, listen to it (some of it might be good), but you, ultimately, have to go with your heart.
How to Find Out What You Want
If you haven’t yet given much thought to bouquets, you may not have much of a clue as to what you’d like to have in your own. So, a good place to start is by looking through magazines or browsing the internet for ideas.
You’re almost certain to find several that catch your eye, so make a note of what it is these bouquets have in common and keep those things in mind when choosing your own bouquet.
How to Flatter Your Figure
Yes, I know it seems strange, but the shape and size of the bouquet really can make a difference to how you look on your big day. So, here’s some great advice for selecting the right bouquet to flatter your figure.
- Short women — should steer clear of posies because they’ll make you look more compact. Instead, you should be looking at bouquets that give the illusion of height. Teardrop, sheath, and larger designs will do the job perfectly.
- Tall women — The goal is to make your height seem more even, so a bouquet that draws the eye down is needed; a medium teardrop or large posy, for example.
- Large women — You’ll find that a large bouquet helps to make you look slimmer. Never choose a small bouquet, because this will exaggerate your width and make you appear larger than you are.
