One of the biggest trends of the last couple of years has to be the move away from uniform bridesmaid dresses, to putting your girls in a variety of styles or colours that complement each other. I still get a little thrill whenever I see this done well, and I know that it’s made many bridesmaids themselves happy, including me. But what if you really want your girls to wear the same dresses, and still want to distinguish them? To let them each express their personality a little? Then this series of posts is for you. In Part 1 we’ll be looking at the mini-trend of individual bouquets. This has to be one of my all-time favourite bridesmaid trends! Probably because of how much I love flowers – the idea of having several beautiful bouquets instead of just one with variations really excites me.

It works beautifully against classic dark colours, like black, grey, brown or even purple.

But is equally lovely with soft ones…

The look isn’t just for bridesmaids in similar dresses – it actually complements the mismatched dress trend as well. I love how in these pics the bouquets have been customised to the colourful bridesmaids’ dresses.

And finally, here’s a really sweet idea. Give each of your bridesmaids a bouquet in one of the flowers that makes up the bride’s blooms, so that together they’re a deconstructed version of your bouquet! Lovely, isn’t it?
