Choosing the right bouquet for your wedding day

The tradition of carrying bouquets can be traced back for centuries. In Ancient Rome, brides carried or wore flower garlands, as they believed that flowers signified new beginnings, fidelity and hope for fertility. No matter the origin, we beleive a bouquet has the ability to add femininity and splendor and needs to be chosen to suit the wedding and reflect the brides personality.

Here is a list of popular types of wedding bouquets to help you choose your style.

  1. The Cascade

The dramatic cascade bouquet features a "waterfall" of flowers that drapes down the front of the arrangement. Vines and orchids look particularly pretty spilling out of a bouquet! This type of bouquet makes a strong style statement, so make sure to keep your gown and other accessories simple.

  1. The Handheld Posy

A classic and popular choice for brides, posy bouquets are small enough to be held in the hands and feature mostly flowers. These types of bouquets typically feature a rounded shape and are wrapped with ribbon. 

  1. All A-Round

It's all about the shape! Round bouquets are formed into perfect domes, often using a single type of flower like roses or peonies. Round bouquets are also often monochromatic, although they look just as beautiful featuring flowers in a variety of colours.

  1. The Pomander

Perfectly round spheres of blooms form the sweet pomander bouquet, which includes a ribbon handle at the top for carrying or displaying. We've seen them suspended from shepherd hooks along the aisle, and they are also well-suited for flower girls since they're easily held by little hands.

  1. All About the Composite

This gorgeous bouquet, also known as a glamelia, is actually composed of individual petals, which are arranged and secured to resemble a single large bloom. The highly stylized bouquet complements a bride who desires a bit of drama.
