WHEN IT COMES TO PICKING YOUR BOUQUET, DECIDING ON A COLOR AND FLORALS TO INCORPORATE ARE JUST TWO OF MANY FACTORS
As if you needed one more aesthetic altering decision to make – am I right? But no worries – choosing the shape of your bouquet is just as fun as choosing the flavors of your three-tier cake! (I’m lying. Just go with it.) With your wedding theme and color palette in mind, read on to find the perfect floral formation for your big day:
It doesn’t get more classic than the round bouquet. Stems are clustered together tightly (or loosened up for a fresher look) and this method is the epitome of adaptable. Any flowers, any colors, any wedding theme – it works for everything! With such a simple style, you can tailor the cost of this bouquet to your budget.
Posy bouquets are for the no-nonsense, chic & sleek, save the frills for the flower girl type of bride. Easy enough to carry in one hand, Posy is a fabulous option for tulips, peonies and rose bouquets. For brides seeking rich stems with lots of color, this is your go-to bunch!
Nosegay bouquets are clusters of blooms bound tightly with organza or ribbon to keep them in a uniform fashion. This is a sweet balance of trendy & traditional, and it’s a top style from year to year. This bouquet style specifically is what brides choose if they’re leaning towards incorporating a lot of greenery.
Pageant style bouquets or “arm sheaths,” are named for the blooms you typically see a beauty queen toting – a gorgeous, tall stem bunch featuring calla lilies, long-stemmed roses, larkspur or orchids. It’s a super modern style for 2018 brides who are seeking a delicate yet dramatic way to carry their bouquet.
YAS! My favorite! The volume, the effortless pops of color, the spillage of greenery! I can’t get enough of cascading bouquets. They can be glam or natural (but always remain elegant) depending on which flowers you want to include! Cascading bouquets are as ethereal as it gets!
