Pink bridal bouquet ideas

When I hear the words pink bridal bouquet ideas, I can’t help but think of the movie Steel Magnolias.  You know the quote, “my colors are blush and bashful. I have chosen two shades of pink, one is much deeper than the other.” Don’t hate me but pink is not my favourite colour.  It wasn’t until I joined the wedding industry that I began to appreciate the true value of pink.  It’s actually quite versatile, encompassing every shade from pale blush to deep magenta.  Calgary wedding florist, Flowers by Janie has me expanding my pink horizons this summer with these three smile-inducing bouquets.  For the brides out there, she’s even been kind enough to share her flower recipes. Take a look!

Pink for a mountain bride

This bride was set to meet her groom for sunrise wedding photos in Banff National Park. Janie purposely selected blooms that would pop against the turquoise waters of Moraine Lake.  The results were impactful.
