Styles of bridal bouquet
The bride’s bouquet is the ultimate wedding accessory and you’ll want the work with your florist to create something extra special.
Blooms, usually a variety of roses, wired together or casually hand-tied. They work best at a contemporary wedding with a simple, modern dress.
A tight ball of flowers, usually without foliage, suspended on a ribbon that the bride hangs on her wrist. These are also very popular for bridesmaids of all ages.
Small, simple and usually hand-tied with ribbon. Lily of the valley makes the perfect minimalist posy.
The classic bouquet, usually consisting of larger flowers such as roses and peonies loosely arranged and tied with ribbon.
A waterfall-like spill of flowers wired to cascade from a handle. This is the most traditional and formal of the bouquet shapes and suits full-skirted dresses.
