The first step in building your florals is picking your palette. From a Romantic Garden to Eclectic Boho, color tones will greatly affect how you communicate your vibe throughout your event.

In most cases, your bouquet color tones will serve as a transitional design for your overall wedding theme.

(2) Pick a minimum of 5 shades for your color scheme. As we mentioned, nature creates through variation; because of this, the 5 shade rule allows you to select transitional colors that tie your floral elements to your general wedding design. Ending in a wonderous, colorful unity.
