There are several wedding bouquet styles to choose from. Dreaming of a traditional or classic style? Looking for modern or contemporary? Want a WOW wedding bouquet? The 7 most popular styles can be customized for the look and overall feel of your wedding.
Traditional Bouquet Styles
Round – The most well-known of the wedding bouquet styles, this timeless and classic style focuses on flowers over greenery. A timeless arrangement which works well for modern and traditional weddings. This style includes just a few types of flowers, but using one type of flower is the most effective to keep it symmetrical.
Posy – A small compact arrangement that can be held in one hand. Their smaller size makes them a popular choice for your attendants and a perfect option for the bride who wants to show off her gown. A perfect choice for petite brides due to its compact size. This type of bouquet is often loose, and the flower stems tied together using ribbon or fabric.
Nosegay – Nosegays are an elegant and classic bouquet style that dates back to the Victorian era. Blooms are cut to the same length, and mixed with greenery. With many variations and interpretations to choose from, the nosegay has always been a very popular choice. A great option for bridesmaids’ bouquets due to its size.
Relaxed & Modern
4. Hand-Tied – This style offers a relaxed unpolished quality for a natural wedding. Loosely bundled together, combining flower stems of varying lengths, colors, and textures tied with ribbon to achieve that just picked look. This type of bouquet is perfect for a rustic, garden or boho-inspired wedding.
5. Cascade – This style features blooms spilling down from the center creating a waterfall effect, and finished with trailing ivy and fresh foliage. The cascade is very feminine, and invokes a fairy tale image; therefore a wonderful choice for a long flowing or princess style dress.
6. Biedermeier – Looking for something unique? A very unique bouquet made up of rings of flowers, each in a separate color. Options include using different types of flowers, or you can feature one type of flower in two or more colors.
7. Composite – A wonderful choice for a very modern wedding. It is constructed from the petals of several flowers which have been sewn, glued or wired together to create one over sized bloom. This style is elegant, and will definitely add some glamour to your wedding day. It can be quite expensive though, because of the skill it requires to make.
Things To Consider
Time of year – choose flowers that are in season
Location – choose flowers native to your wedding location or destination to help save on the cost
