In the epic debate of white/ivory bridal bouquets vs. colorful, I choose... COLORFUL! Why? It adds "pop", contrast and interest in your bridal portraits. You could use your wedding colors in your bouquet, or contrasting colors or gradation of your wedding colors!

Some other random tips I talk about are:

 - Hold your bouquet at your hip/belly button height. Any higher and you might cover up your gorgeous face and have your shoulders tense and high.

 - Choose your florist/flowers after deciding on your dress. That way you know what style you're going for.

 - Choose flowers that are in season and match your theme!
