Here are a few of the most popular wedding bouquet styles. Which type of wedding bouquet speaks to you and your wedding style?
Cascade bridal Bouquet
Cascade bouquets showcase a literal waterfall of flowers by using greenery and choice blooms. This bridal bouquet style has a gorgeous tapering effect. This bouquet is meant to hang or drop down in front of the hand and form an upside-down teardrop shape. It is rounded at the top and forming a point at the bottom.
The waterfall shape of these can feel super feminine and fairytale-like. They’re perfect for charming garden weddings, stunning ballroom weddings, and classic cathedral weddings alike. If you’re using lots of greenery throughout your other florals, a cascading bouquet might just be the perfect option to tie everything together.
Biedermeier bouquets are European- influenced. They are round and consist of a tight bunch of uniformly cut flowers wrapped by fabric or wire. They align the flowers in concentric circles around each other, creating a striped effect on your bouquet. Biedermeier bouquets tend to have more of a formal look.
The Biedermeier bouquet has a very pleasing geometry and is recently showing signs of popularity due to its dramatic beauty and contrast.
This bridal bouquet style typically consists of a single type of floral arranged in a dome shape. However, varying types of florals in a single colour are sometimes used. If you are after a modern twist on this style of bouquet you could use flowers in a variety of colours for more of a unique bouquet option.
Stems are typically wrapped tight with a silk ribbon. It’s all about the shape for this bouquet!
If you are looking for a timeless, elegant and simple style then this could be the bouquet for you.
Posy bouquets are a classic choice for brides. They’re perfect for petite brides, bridesmaids and flower girls as it is a smaller bouquet. This type of style consists of a small round bouquet that is tied with a decorative ribbon and is easy to hold in one hand.
Posy style bouquets are suitable for most weddings. They can be made loose for a more informal wedding or tightly constructed for a contemporary twist.
They are also a popular choice at the moment as intimate ceremonies and two-part weddings are the norm. Whilst we are still dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic this bridal bouquet style is favoured.
Hand-tied bouquets are very popular lately. They envelop that lush, laid-back, wild aesthetic so many brides are going for with their florals. Hand-tied bouquets are typically tied off by ribbons or twine (with stems left showing at the bottom for that “fresh-picked-flowers” feel).
They’re usually chock-full of an assortment of both flowers and greenery and are meant to feel less constricted and ‘looser’ than typical round bridal bouquets.
If you want something that feels organic and fresh-picked, a hand-tied bridal bouquet is for you!
Single stem bridal bouquet
A single-stem bridal bouquet consists a single, lone flower held in place of a traditional arrangement. But don’t let the idea of a single-stem bouquet fool you as it’s perfect if done well, they can often make the most impact.
If you’re going for a romantic, earnest, simple wedding aesthetic, opting for a single garden rose, protea, or other high-impact flower is the perfect option.
