A Guide to Bouquet Styles5 July 2019
Wedding bouquets and flowers are an integral part of any wedding and effectively serve to make your special day more colourful, vibrant and memorable. Choose the right bouquet that suits you and your wedding…
Cascade – If you are passionate about flowers and looking for a statement piece then this bouquet achieves just that. The flowers will cascade downward from the bride and is traditionally quite large in size and heavy.
Posy – The most classic of choices as they are small enough to be held in the hands and feature mostly flowers. Fit for just about any style of wedding and is great choice if you want to show case your wedding dress.
Hand-tied – Refers to the method of which the bouquet is constructed by taking the individual flower stems and arranging them directly in one’s hand to form the arrangement. It has no impact towards the shape or size.
Round – One of the most well-known types of bouquet and as you can imagine round in shape. It is a bigger version of the posy and a more buttoned-up structured version of the hand-tied. Round bouquets usually consist of fewer flower types, to keep them more consistent.
Nosegay – This round arrangement is known for its densely packed flowers which are often bound with a ribbon. While the bride usually carries a larger bouquet, the members of the wedding party usually carry the smaller nosegays. In addition to weddings, nosegay bouquets are also popular as gifts for a variety of occasions.
Pomander – The pomander bouquet is a perfect ball of flowers usually carried by a ribbon that can be hung from the bride’s wrist. This bouquet type is great for flowers girls or as ceremony decor as well.
Composite – One of the more modern types of bridal bouquet, a Composite bouquet is composed of individual petals which are then arranged and secured to resemble one large flower.
Circle – This is quite a new wedding trend and we love it! Display your flowers in a circle for your bridesmaids to carry. It’s so simple and so modern.
Crescent – Crescent-shaped bouquets allow the flowers to flow freely and allows the blooms to stand out on their own in a more natural way. The size of a crescent bouquet usually depends on the style of dress and the bride’s height.
Single Stem – Instead of carrying a big bouquet of flowers, consider making a statement with just one stylish.
