Part of our in-house floral service involves choosing from the many different types of bridal bouquets, the perfect design for our bride. It’s during these consultations that we find that most of our couples are unaware of the vastly different shapes, styles, and types of bridal bouquets available and normally assume they have limited options. Thankfully, this isn’t the case, and a bridal bouquet can be styled to complement the look of the bride, while also offering a hint of what’s to come from the wedding decor.
The different types of bridal bouquets now available range from a single stem, to the classic round design, through to very modern overflowing floral arrangements. Bouquets are certainly not resistant to trends, with many styles coming and going from one season to the next. The key to choosing the perfect bridal bouquet for you, is to ignore any passing fads, and choose a design that speaks to you and works within the context of your look. That is why it is so important to speak to an expert wedding florist in the Cayman Islands such as ourselves, we’ll be able to guide you towards the most tried and trusted design, and one that will also suit your style.
Below are a few of the different types of bridal bouquets that we can create for you, which one will you choose?
What Different Types of Bridal Bouquets Are There?
We’re starting off with a classic bouquet that our brides love for its simplicity, and timeless appeal. In fact, the Posy bouquet was chosen by Meghan Markle for her wedding, so you’re in good company if you choose this style. This type of bridal bouquet is typically round, with its stems bound together, and all cut to the same length. This handheld design is different from other types of bridal bouquets, as it typically has little to no greenery, or foliage.
In contrast to the above design, the cascading bridal bouquet is often full of greenery. This foliage is usually mixed in with various types of long-stemmed flowers such as orchids, or lilies to create a pretty, spilling out effect. This is probably one of the most dramatic types of bridal bouquets, and certainly creates a statement when compared to the more traditional choices out there.
A classic in bridal bouquets, and one that brides often gravitate towards before discovering the other different types of designs. As the name suggests, this style is round, or domed in shape and is often formed of just one single type of flower. Typically, they are arranged in only one colour, and look particularly special when created using peonies, or roses.
The Nosegay bouquet is similar to the Posy, but typically this style has more greenery. It can work really well as a bridesmaid bouquet, as it is usually more compact, and smaller in overall size. A wealth of different types of flowers can be used for this style of bridal bouquet, but roses and orchids are two of our favourites.
You could say that all the different types of bridal bouquets are hand tied, as your florist will almost certainly arrange, and fix your arrangement manually. The difference with this type of bouquet is that it has a more boho, free feeling to it. Often tied together by ribbon, or fabric, with stems cut to the same length, but allowed to spread out from the base. Perfect for a rustic style celebration.
One of the most unique bridal bouquets, and vastly different from the other types as it is not held by the stem. Instead, the Pomander bouquet is carried by a handle that wraps around the wrist, or can be hung as decoration. The bouquet is typically hung by a ribbon but occasionally our florists create breath-taking designs such as this with the bamboo strap. The actual classic bouquet is perfectly spherical, with lots of neatly arranged flowers tightly packed into an eye-catching ball shape recently brides have been stepping out of the Pomander round bouquets and creating lots of interesting shapes & styles.
If you’re looking for drama, the Composite bouquet may be what you and your bridesmaids are searching for. This exceptional design is actually made up of many individual petals, all arranged together to create one larger version of that same flower. They are fun, stylish and look stunning when shared among the bridal party.
To engage in a world of different colours and styles, tropical bouquets are a fascinating option for your Wedding Day. A selection of vibrant flowers that flow together is typically created within a spread of tropical leaves such as Palms, Monstera or Banana. Popular florals to include in your arrangement include, Ginger, Pin Cushions, Lilies, King Protea’s and accenting local blooms.
