Bridal Bouquet Styles

When it comes to choosing the most adequate, elegant, romantic and eye-catchy wedding bouquet for the wedding day, brides have to consider several important aspects.

Brides must be careful when picking the most wonderful fresh or fake flowers, the most matching and vibrant colors, the right length, the most assorted and thematic accessories and the most good looking style or shape for the wedding bouquet. As you can see, it’s not enough to choose the right wedding flowers and colors for the wedding bouquet and just hope to look nice. One can’t ignore the essential part of composing the wedding bouquet in a very unique, or just fitting shape and style.

As you will discover there are different types of bouquets you can choose from to suit any formality, character, location and style of the wedding you’re planning.  Ever wondered about the different terminology used around bridal bouquets are?  We would love to assist you with the language we use here at SILKY BLOOMS.

Round Wedding Bouquet styles are very popular, especially since the vintage, antique or Victorian themed weddings are back. The posy wedding bouquets were incredibly popular back in the elegant Victorian era and now are back in our modern weddings especially if we are to notice those hand tied natural loose and casual styles or those formal fully wired stemless wedding bouquets.  Depending on the formality of the event, brides can tie and wrap the posy wedding bouquet with matching ribbons, bows and jewels. Among the most suitable types of flowers for posy wedding bouquets are roses, peonies, tulips, lavenders, lilies of the valley, carnations, irises, gladiolas, freesias, calla lilies, orchids, sunflowers, chrysanthemums or gerbera daises.

Shower / Teardrop Wedding Bouquet type of bouquet is larger and more elegant, fancy, abundant and rich, perfect for formal weddings. Usually it can contain all kinds of greeneries, flower buds, ribbons and leaves.

 

Biedermeir Wedding Bouquet, is a round bouquet that features flowers of different colors and/or types arranged in concentric rings, with one flower type or color in each layer. The style became popular in Europe in the 1800’s, and it continues to be a traditional choice for formal weddings today.  This flower arrangement typically used in bridal bouquets, although the florist can create smaller, two-layered versions for the bridesmaids. The Biedermeier style also translates well into large wedding reception centerpieces, which can grow to any diameter or height to suit large spaces.

Sheath Wedding Bouquet, the arm sheaf bouquet first became popular in the early 1900’s under the name of Bernhardt bouquets; inspired by the presentation bouquets given to the actress of the day. They are long stemmed flowers and foliage’s that the bride carries cradled in her arm, also known as a presentation bouquet.  It is a stunning alternative to more traditional styles of bouquets, it is very chic, and best suited to modern style weddings. Tastefully designed to be cradled in the bride’s arm and can be as simple or as elaborate as she likes.  They can be single-ended, with stems showing at one end, or double-ended with no stems showing. A gorgeous ribbon provides the finishing touch. Popular floral choices for arm bouquets are calla lilies, gladiolus, orchids, long-stemmed roses, delphiniums, and larkspur.

 

The Nosegay Wedding Bouquet, traditionally the nosegay was a small round shaped bunch of flowers and herbs, often containing more greenery than other bouquets and mounted in a tussie-mussie (a small, Victorian style, metal or glass, cone-shaped holder).  It came back in fashion in the 1980’s as a tight posy of small flowers with a stiff tulle backing. It was very popular with flower girls and bridesmaids. In modern times it has been revived and reinvented with additions of lovely satin and organza ribbons and larger floral arrangements.

The Pomander Bouquet or Kissing Ball, is also known as a kissing ball. A pomander is a ball of flowers suspended from a loop of decorative ribbon. Adult attendants can carry pomanders, but young attendants such as flower girls and junior bridesmaids most often carry them.

 The Wrist or Corsage Bouquet, a wrist bouquet or flower bracelet is a small flower bouquet worn on the wrist. More corsage than bouquet, this style is comprised of a small floral arrangement. Flowers and foliage are mounted on a small base attached to a strong elastic bracelet fitted around the wrist.  A great alternative to a traditional bouquet. Worn by brides and bridesmaids who want the look of a bouquet, but want the freedom of having their hands free. The wrist corsage can be made in any combination of flowers and is occasionally complimented with ribbons and beads.

The Wedding Basket Bouquet has flowers arranged in a beautifully shaped shallow basket and is usually and more often used in a garden or garden-like wedding setting.  The basket bouquet may be carried by the bride, but are most popular with and often carried by flower girls and junior bridesmaids.  The small basket keeps their little hands occupied and out of mischief.
