The bouquets we’ve decided to present today are elegant and romantic, yet eye-catchy and flashy in the same time. The contrast between elegance and stridency is amazing, at least in this case. The red theme used for these bouquets is the element that adds so much originality to these elegant floral arrangements. Red may seem traditional and conventional at a first glance. But it all depends on the way it is used.
Many of us still have preconceptions about this color, especially when it comes to wedding bouquets. Red rose bridal bouquets have been so popular and so overused during the last few years that we can’t think of something different when we hear about this theme. But red is not the official color of roses or of rose wedding bouquet! There are plenty other flower choices to consider when it comes to this hue. It’s not like all red bouquets are or should be made of roses! You are free to pick any other type of flower that can help you create a more modern arrangement.
Red is rich and sophisticated and its opulence is great for a wedding day. If you want to obtain fabulous results, we suggest you use lavish red blooms. What do you think of a red ranunculuses bouquet? These blooms are extremely beautiful, especially due to their lavish ruffled petals. For something similar, only softer and more feminine, we recommend red peonies. Both the full open blooms and buds look extraordinary! For a beautiful effect you should try to focus on a concentrate tight bouquet. Red looks even more appealing when used alone, in deep shades.
You can see this style in the photos we brought for this post. Red carnations look awesome when arranged in thick kissing ball and pomander bouquets. These flowers are also considered conservative, but as we said before, there are many preconceptions you need to escape before labeling things! One of our favorite red blooms that look sensational in red is the lovely poppy.
We’ve seen this flower before incorporated in spring and summer bridal bouquets and centerpieces. This flower is large and soft, natural-looking and very sensual. A red poppy bridal bouquet can make a gorgeous modern alternative to traditional rose bouquets. If you’re getting married in winter, why not choose red poinsettias?
These blooms are indeed traditional and specific for this season. You can add holy and ivy leaves, ferns and pine cones to make the arrangement feel even more thematic. Modern brides who are tying the knot in winter can consider red amaryllises. These wide blooms look fascinating when they’re fully open! Take a look at the bouquet in the last picture. We like the way red makes a dramatic contrast to the whiteness of winter.
