Wedding Bridal Bouquets

The bridal bouquet is one of the most significant items in any wedding. Some brides-to-be actually create their own bridal bouquet but the more popular option is to hire a professional to do the job. Before you go out and find a florist, you should first familiarize yourself with the different kinds of bridal bouquet arrangements. With all the choices available, you will easily find the one that would be perfect for your wedding ceremony.

Here are some of the top bridal bouquet arrangements that you may want to try:

  1. Round Bridal Bouquet

    The flowers in this type of bridal bouquet are arranged around a spherical form. The overall look of this bridal bouquet is very simple yet elegant, making it easily compatible with any wedding dress. This bridal bouquet arrangement is by far the most preferred by brides anywhere. Another great thing about the round bridal bouquet is that it works well with any kind of flowers. You can also adorn it with ribbons, laces or other ornaments reminiscent of the early Victorian period.

  2. Cascading Bridal Bouquet

    This is one of the more charming types of bridal bouquets. It has a primary bouquet along with several blossoms dangling over the sides. This bridal bouquet arrangement is one of the most popular choices for formal wedding ceremonies. Again, laces and ribbons can be used to enhance the beauty of this bridal bouquet. Depending on the kind of embellishment you use, you can make the cascading bridal bouquet look more formal or more casual.

  3. Hand-Tied Bridal Bouquet

    Originating in Europe, the hand-tied bridal bouquet is quite a delightful touch to any wedding. The flowers are simply gathered in a bunch and tied together into a bouquet with some ribbon or lace. It's so simple and fresh that it's a favorite for garden weddings, beach weddings and even in some traditional settings. The more conservation generations may frown on such a simple bouquet for a wedding but the hand-tied bridal bouquet is actually quite a hit with the younger people who like to add a modern touch to their traditional ceremonies.

  4. Sheaf Bridal Bouquet

    Sometimes also known as a presentation bouquet, the sheaf bridal bouquet is meant to be carried in the arms instead of clutched with the hands. This type of bridal bouquet is typically used in conventional church ceremonies. Leaves are sometimes included as a backdrop to the flowers in the arrangement but they shouldn’t be to big as to draw attention away from the flowers themselves. A technique that most florists use to make the sheaf bouquet more interesting is the use of larger and more brightly colored flowers in the arrangement.

  5. Contemporary Bridal Bouquet

    For a woman who likes to play on the wild side and have a lot of fun, a contemporary bridal bouquet is just the perfect choice. These bridal bouquets are certainly different from the traditional arrangements in traditional weddings. In many occasions, contemporary bridal bouquets are made from other materials instead of flowers and ribbons. This will surely add to the fun and charm of a wedding, but you also have to make sure that it still works with the motif.

These are just five of the many different bridal bouquets that you can choose from. In order to make the best choice, keep in mind that the bouquet should complement your dress and not simply stand out on its own.
