It’s the middle of March and Spring wants to peak it’s beautiful head but we are still experiencing crisp cold mornings with lots of snow on the ground here in the Northeast. I think I speak for most when I say it’s time for some true Spring weather! Spring means flowers and what better way to wash away the winter blues then to dive right into some beautiful Bridal Bouquets. There are a few trends when it comes to the Bridal Bouquet and we thought we’d share the combinations we’ve been seeing recently.
Bold and Colorful Bridal Bouquets
White tends to be the traditional color of a Bride and Bridal Bouquet, however, we are seeing more and more brides opting for floral full of bright colors! Check out these amazing displays we’ve seen in just the last year or so. From bright orange, peach and fusia Peonies to Orchids, and Dalias – you can truly let your personality shine through your floral choices on the day of your wedding! We are just absolutely in love with the bridal bouquets below!
Soft & Romantic bridal bouquets
Brides whose bridesmaids are in muted colors such as lavender, light blue or peach are choosing bouquets with a more romantic feel incorporating whites, greens and very pale pinks.
Organic & Rustic bridal bouquets
A number of our Brides are selecting florals that have more of an organic and rustic feel denoted by a variety of texture and color with a “just picked from the garden” look. This is becoming a trend specifically with brides hosting tented wedding receptions.

Lilly’s gorgeous architectural white Mini Calla Lily bouquet comes with a story.
All brides have a vision for their wedding day, and Lilly was no different. In her mind her bridal bouquet was to be a pure white bouquet of Peonies. When she expressed her desires to Hampton’s floral designer, Kim Solomito of Kim Jon Designs, Kim gracefully shared that her vision may not be a reality. Given the fragile nature of Peonies and their short production cycle, guaranteeing a purely Peony bridal bouquet towards the end of June was a risk so Kim respectfully shared, “you need to be prepared that Peonies will not work but trust that I understand your vision and will make that a reality.”
As Kim had anticipated, it had been a very warm winter with degrees in March already in the 60s. Though Peonies traditionally bloom in June, Kim knew because of the warm winter they were likely to produce far earlier than normal. As the Peonies began to bloom prematurely in May Kim called Lilly and said, “As expected we are going to have a problem with the Peonies. But I understand what you want and here is my suggestion. You chose an all white monochromatic bridal bouquet with architectural elements for it’s clean simplicity. Based on the rest of the florals you chose and knowing we are looking at a very warm June, I would suggest an all white Mini Calla Lily bouquet. It will meet your vision and it will hold up to the heat.” In the end Lilly was thrilled and the result was stunning.
