Add unexpected flair by using unique items on your bouquet, like a bohemian-style tassel.

If you have time before the big day, consider doing some DIY projects for your bridal party gifts. Find more ideas here!
Add tropical elements in your bridal party accessories and decor.
If you want to add a tropical element to the décor, try using palm trees and other plants that are native to your chosen location. If you’re having the wedding outdoors, consider using succulents for your bouquets or centerpieces. You can also use them in boutonnieres, hair accessories and other parts of the bridal party decor such as sashes or headbands.
Opt for a color palette with patterns, like stripes or dots.
Opt for a color palette with patterns, like stripes or dots. This is especially great if you want to add some color while still keeping everything classic. Stripes are a great way to add a pop of color and can easily be matched with any hue you choose (especially black or brown). Dots are also perfect for adding a casual vibe and can be used on dresses, shoes, jewelry and even bridal party attire.
Pick out similar dresses and suits that have a comfortable style, instead of formal wear.

Add bold colors to your attire, including pastels or neons to add a fun touch.
You can also add a fun touch to your attire by using bright colors. For example, use pastels or neons to add a fun touch.
Coordinate with the venue to get decorations that will match the scenery outside.
If you’re marrying at a venue with a gorgeous garden, don’t be afraid to go all-out with your bridal party decorations! For example, if the venue has chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, consider adding some of your own on each table. These can be simple glass or metal orbs that hold candles and flowers in them.
If your wedding is taking place at an outdoor location with lots of greenery already in place (think: tropical locations), why not have some fun with it? You could do something like creating giant flower arrangements for everyone to wear! Imagine how beautiful it would look for each person in your bridal party to carry around their own bouquet—and imagine how much prettier those bouquets would look than what you see at most weddings these days!
Use accessories that match your bouquet, like earrings or bracelets.
You can use accessories to match your bouquet, dress, wedding theme, wedding colors and even your overall wedding style. For example, if you have a big flower in your bouquet and want to keep the floral theme throughout all of the decorations at the reception, then incorporate it into bracelets for bridesmaids or earrings for them as well.
Add pastries with flower decorations on them for an accessory that’s edible too!
You can also use pastries as a decoration or an edible decoration. When you do both, it’s called an edible cake.
For example, say you have a party where people bring their own desserts to eat. You want to assign a theme to your table so that everyone knows what they’re getting into before they sit down at it and see what’s in front of them. A good way for people who are coming with their own dessert is for each bridesmaid or groomsman to have their own cake stand with the same decorations on it and then put different colors of frosting on top so that when someone sits at the table they know exactly which one they picked up!
Consider using personal touches for the seating chart, like handwritten notes and photos of you and each of your friends together from throughout the years.
Your seating chart is one of the most important components of your wedding, so it’s worth taking the time to do it right. For example, if you’re having a lot of out-of-town guests coming in for the weekend, consider using personal touches for the seating chart like handwritten notes or photos of you and each of your friends together from throughout the years. You could also use photos of your friends on their own (the beach!) and at other weddings they’ve been to in the past 365 days as part of your overall theme—and even take it further by incorporating some favorite old pictures into your table design!
Add collared shirts to dresses for a flirty boho look.
Collared shirts are a classic look that can be worn with any style of dress. They’re also the perfect option for those who are allergic to flowers, as they won’t cause irritation on your skin or get in your eyes during the ceremony.
In order to achieve this look, buy collared shirts from various colors and styles and have each bridesmaid wear one under their dress (or just over it) for an extra-fresh take on a boho aesthetic! Collared shirts may seem like an old-fashioned idea, but you can always make them modern by pairing them with trendy accessories—just add some earrings or necklaces before you head out so you can stand out at all times!
Find ways to incorporate florals into your hair accessories for floral fun!
Floral hair accessories are a great way to add a pop of color and fun to your bridal party! Floral hair accessories are available in a wide variety of styles and colors, which means you can find one that matches your dress perfectly. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, keep in mind that you’ll need to keep up with any rain or wind that might come in your direction—but don’t let this stop you from having fun! Floral hair accessories can be worn to the ceremony and reception, so there’s no reason not to try one out!
Incorporate cultural elements into the ceremony and reception décor.

You may want to include cultural elements in your wedding ceremony, reception, bridal party and flower arrangements. If you are having a traditional Indian wedding for example, consider adding henna tattoos or mehendi designs on your hands or feet as part of a special welcome for guests at the entrance of your venue. You could also have silk fabric decorated with patterns created by local craftspeople as part of your table runners or runners leading up to where you exchange vows with your partner on an outdoor stage with beautiful views of nature (think city parks).
Overall, we’re all about bright colors and tropical vibes for the bridal party decorations. We hope this article has been helpful in providing some inspiration for your own wedding, whether it be three years down the road or even sooner!
