The Wedding Manicure You Should Get, Based on Your Bridal Bouquet

Thought you could only do nude on your wedding day? Think again.

When it comes to wedding planning, odds are, you'll pick the flowers before you pick the manicure. Either way, it's always a nice touch when the two go together—especially when your photographer captures gorgeous shots of your bouquet, like the ones below. Get inspired on ways to do your nails with our tips (no pun intended). 

  1. A White Stephanotis Bouquet: A Soft, Nude Manicure

    A stephanotis bouquet is the definition of minimalist chic—and so is a classic, nude manicure. 

    We recommend: Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in Beige Leger, $28,

  2. Red Roses: A Fiery Red Shade

    A statement-making red manicure to match a bouquet of red roses is equal parts romantic and glamorous. 

    We recommend: OPI Infinite Shine Lacquer in Cha-Ching Cherry, $8,

  3. A Bouquet Wrapped in Burlap: A Metallic Gold

    Complement the decidedly rustic material with a luxe gold manicure.

    We recommend: NARS nail polish in Milos, $20,

  4. Light Yellow Roses, Hydrangeas and Greens: A Pale Yellow

    Match your pale yellow florals with a nearly neutral pale yellow manicure. 

    We recommend: Butter London Patent Shine 10X nail lacquer in Lemon Drop, $11,

  5. A Single Dahlia: A Sheeny White

    If you keep your bouquet ultra-simple, feel encouraged to add some subtle sparkle to your manicure. 

    We recommend: Essie nail polish in Sweet Souffle, $7, 

  6. Silk Flowers and White Peonies: A Light Pink

    You can go in any direction with soft silk flowers and white peonies, but we think a subtle bouquet like this calls for ultra-feminine, light pink nails. 

    We recommend: Cote nail polish in light pink, $18,

  7. White Hydrangeas: A Gold French Manicure

    The subtle flecks of gold on your bouquet will complement your white-and-green bouquet beautifully.

    We recommend: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail color in Go for Gold, $4,

  8. A Burgundy Berry and Wildflower Bouquet: Burgundy Nails

    Unruly wildflower bouquets are in—berries included. Match yours with burgundy nails. 

    We recommend: Rituals Miracle Nail Varnish in burgundy, $8,

  9. A Bi-Color Bouquet: Blush Nails

    If you have two standout colors in your bouquet, pick one to match precisely with. 

    We recommend: Deborah Lippmann sheer nail polish in naked, $18,

  10. White Roses and Orchids: A French Manicure

    A delicate bouquet calls for equally delicate nails.

    We recommend: Sally Hansen French manicure pen, $9,
