Wedding Bouquet Flowers
Flowers for the bridal party
There are many forms of bouquets to choose from for your special day. A hand tied wedding bouquet (shown in the picture above) is one of the most simple forms of bridal bouquets. These are round in shape. You can see how the style of these can be altered with different types of flowers and how tightly or loosely they are tied together.
Presentation bouquets (shown in the image to the right) are designed to be held to one side and are suited to longer stemmed flowers.
Cascading wedding bouquets are also a popular choice with the ability to achieve ranging looks from elegant or classic to contemporary or country.
Flowers for the bridesmaids can simply be smaller arrangements so to compliment the main bouquet. Wrist corsages or pomander bouquets, a spherical bouquet hung by a ribbon are lovely choices for children. For the men, buttonholes can be worn on a lapel. These can be a single flower or a few smaller flowers, often mirroring the flowers in the the main bouquet and those in the bridesmaid posies.
Fresh flower wedding bouquets are chosen by many couples but you may also want to think about dried flowers for autumn or winter wedding. Dried flowers are a current trend and they can be used to create dramatic arrangements giving contrasting colours and textures when combined with fresh flowers. A definite advantage to dried flowers is that they last for 1-3 years if correctly cared for.
Artificial flowers are also an option and Daiva uses a supplier who provides incredibly realistic blooms. They will never know and your flowers will of course last for a very long time. Like dried flowers, they are best kept out of bright sunlight.
On the day
