Mix and Match Bridal Bouquets

Floral Inspiration
for Mix & Match Maids

You’ve picked the perfect palette for your bridesmaids—what’s next? Flowers, of course! Florals are perhaps the most important element of wedding décor for defining your color scheme, and the right flowers add an extra special something to mix and match maids dresses. We shared our unexpected bridesmaid palettes with Terrain design manager (and expert on all things flowers!) Matt Muscarella. Read on for four perfect palette pairings created by Matt and the Terrain team.

Old Hollywood

Sophisticated hues, slinky silhouettes, seriously glam

Inspiration:

“In early spring, before everything is fully in bloom, I love to use dried materials that have been stored over the winter. This muted palette pairs so perfectly with the pops of color you typically see in spring. The combination is one of my favorite transitional palettes.”

Materials:

“Dried palms, dried grass plumes, golden spider mums, peonies, protea, and bleached oak.”

Setting:

Season
& Setting:

“I imagine this palette for an early spring wedding, right around the spring equinox (March 19 this year!).”

Palette
Pairing:

“The muted tones along with notes of dusty rose and gold complement the colors in the palette, while the bleached and dried elements still allow the dresses to be the focal point. The texture of the botanicals feels celebratory, too—as if they were nature’s fireworks.”

Hidden Gems

A surprising mix of saturated jewel tones

Inspiration:

“When thinking about a palette that incorporates the saturated tones you expect to see in fall, it’s always my goal to infuse a little bit of the unexpected. Whether that comes in the form of dramatic textures or a pop of rust that borders on crimson, I always try to keep this combination feeling exciting and fresh.”

Materials:

“Chrysanthemums, dahlias, hydrangea paniculata, euphorbia, and garden roses.”

Setting:

Champagne Toast

Proof that neutrals are anything but boring

Inspiration:

“An entirely tonal palette always feels so fresh. Something that feels unrestricted by season, time, or place is truly hard to find, but I love how it came together here. In this palette, painted and dried materials pair with small pops of desaturated florals to create a graphic mix of shapes and textures.”

Materials:

“Painted palms and ferns, dried grasses, cotton, and carnations.”

Season &
Setting:

Season
& Setting:

“This palette would truly work anywhere, but I love the idea of this as an unexpected twist for a holiday/winter wedding, or as a cooling antidote to a steamy midsummer wedding.”

Palette
Pairing:

Palette
Pairing:

“The frosted tones amp up the monochromatic vibe, while the graphic textures ensure that every detail is still noticed.”
