Wouldn't you agree your most important if not symbolic accessory is going to be the bouquet?  I've had lots of clients over the years and more than a few are undecided at the last minute over to veil or not to veil, what shoes, earrings, etc. to choose. The bouquet however never seems to be an issue.    Before the dress is even finished my client is describing her bouquet in minute detail.  I think certain posies have real significance for each of us.  I carried Calla Lillies wrapped in a Tartan in memory of my parents.  Both had passed at the time and their anniversary was the day before I got married ( yes my mother carried Callas).  A couple months back when I did the Love Stories Shoot, I knew I wanted to incorporate another post within it about pairing up bouquets with your bridal gown.  Finding an inspiration point and blending that idea with your dress is just the beginning of working one or a few colors into an overall theme.  Size and proportion is something else to consider.  Some of us like the idea of carrying a huge burst of or three to four different kinds of flowers in an arrangement while another might go for the simplicity of a small nosegay.  I must thank Victoria Marshall of Victoria's Florals and Events who after seeing these dresses come off the work table put together these stunning custom bouquets for the shoot.
