Many couples are doing it themselves, and that’s great and can be the topic for a future article, but understanding What You Should Look For In A Wedding Florist can really help you achieve the dreamy wedding you have in your mind, bringing it to reality.

What Are The Different Styles Of Bouquets?

This is a very good question and will be one of the topics in my next blog, but to quickly answer this, There are 7 main styles to consider, such as:

1. Cascade Bouquet – This Bouquet This one creates a waterfall look and is generally made with Orchids, Delphinium, and Mini Callas, although there are many other Blooms you can use.

2. Posy Bouquet – This bouquet is a small handheld one that show cases one variety of Flowers instead of mixing with greens and other varieties.

3. Hand Tied Bouquet – This bouquet has a wide variety of flowers that is wrapped with ribbon or twine.

4. Round Bouquet – This bouquet is all about the shape and can be formed in a cool beehive dome shape that looks great in front of your bosom. This is made many times, with Hydrangea or Peonies.

5. Nosegay Bouquet – This one is kind of like the Posy Bouquet but places more emphasis on the Greenery, instead of the Flowers, although they are often times added.

6. Pomander Bouquet – This one is a perfectly round sphere of flowers that incudes a ribbon at the top for carrying.

7. Composite Bouquet – This is a really cool type that is actually composed of individual Flower Petals arranged in such a way that resembles one large bloom.


This is a summary, but three important things to consider is, your budget, who will make the arrangements, and what kind of bouquet are you going to make?
