Which Wedding Bouquet Style Will You Carry Down The Aisle?

There are so many decisions to be made when planning your wedding, and their choice of flowers is yet another. Besides the ceremony and reception flowers for your big day, one of the most important choices to be made is for the wedding bouquet.

The trends for weddings change all the time, and especially so after the pandemic, and flowers are no different, as Vogue reports, stating the perennials are making a big comeback. So how do you choose a wedding bouquet for the ceremony?

It’s likely the groom thinks all bouquets appear to be the same, it’s just some flowers tied with a ribbon, right? But not all bouquets are created equal.

There are many styles that a wedding bouquet can adopt, for example, a larger bouquet may be a better fit for a formal vow exchange at a church, while a smaller, looser flower arrangement will complement a casual garden celebration.

When you’re discussing your wedding flower packages with your florist, they will be thankful if you can tell them what kind of bouquet you have in mind, whether or not you have decided on a colour palette already.

If you have a particular flower type you would like, this can influence the bouquet. Roses and peonies are ideal for round bridal bouquets, while some brides may prefer a greener cascade style or an arm sheath for a glamorous celebration, or a hand-tied bouquet for an alfresco garden ceremony.

For some brides, choosing the bouquet first can influence the flower selection for the entire day. Your florist can then suggest flowers that will work for the colour scheme, season, location, etc. Having a colour scheme decided is even better, as they will then be able to select flower options based on the hues available.
