Wedding Flower Bouquets

written by Liza Roeser Atwood February 2, 2009

One of the most meaningful flowers a woman will ever carry, the bride’s bouquet is a symbol of love, an expression of her personality as well as a stunning piece of art. This beautiful compliment is important, as it is one of the most important elements of a wedding. Not only will it be shown in several pictures, but it can also be preserved as a nice remembrance of that magical day when a couple decided to become one.

Bridal and Bridesmaids' bouquet For this reason, a careful plan should be developed when deciding upon and coordinating this bouquet. Blooms should be chosen based on the taste of the bride and on the meaning they convey. Other important details such as ribbon and pins can make a bouquet pop, and should be planned as well. These small details can make a big difference, and they can help achieve that personal and unique look all brides desire.

A bridesmaid’s bouquet is a gift a bride presents to honor and thank her bridesmaid. It may have similar blooms as the bride’s bouquet, but normally, it will be smaller. When arranging the bouquets, there is a guideline to follow: the bridesmaid’s bouquet should have about half of the stems used for the bride’s bouquet. This applies particularly when using the same blooms in both bouquets. Another way to differentiate both bouquets is to use different focal flowers but the same filler flowers. This can also be cost effective, and will make the bride stand out from the rest of her wedding party. Also, number of stems can be selected depending on the look the bride wants for her event. If the bride prefers, a single stem can be carried by the bridesmaid down the aisle, as it reflects simplicity yet elegance.

Flower bouquets are one of the easiest ways to incorporate a desired look and feel to an event. They distinguish the important people in the affair, and fully complement their looks. When planning for the bouquets, let your imagination fly!

Great website. I had to bring my wife over to view the bouquets because she is a lover of the various types of flowers. Great job and thanks.
