How to Pick a Wedding Bouquet

Learn how to pick a wedding bouquet from celebrity wedding planner Barbara Esses in this Howcast video.


My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for a living. I'm Ruthie Hecht; I'm an event planner and I work with and for my mother. We're going to teach you the do's and don'ts for the perfect wedding. A wedding bouquet is an extremely personal choice. Obviously it has to compliment your dress, but today, with all the different flowers in the market place and all the different colors, one absolutely has no boundaries whatsoever in choosing the wedding bouquet. However, if one is picking color to go with a white dress, it's a good idea to take at least one or more of that flower with you to your bridal fitting. Have a friend or the bridal advisor take a snapshot with it and see if you like the color in the picture against the dress. There are magazines full of bridal bouquets, and the florist should have some creative ideas for you as well. And you can take a look at things from 30 years ago, things from yesterday, and make a decision of what suits you best. There are no rules, except that when you see it, you should be very, very happy.
