1. Round Bouquet
For this bouquet, it's all about the shape! The flowers in a round bouquet are usually monochromatic, such as Roses, Hydrangeas, or Peonies arranged in perfect dome shapes. Pale pink peonies are simple and beautiful, they have an air of sophisticated whimsy. Refreshingly crisp and feminine, this bouquet is picture-perfect for a springtime celebration.
2. Cascade Bouquet
An amazing tapering effect is achieved by cascade bouquets due to the use of greenery and delicate blooms, which give the bouquet a waterfall-like effect. Various types of long-stemmed flowers and greeneries like Eucalyptus, Orchids, Calla Lilies, and garden roses are commonly used in this bouquet to achieve the cascade style. Be sure to keep your wedding dress and other accessories simple when using this type of bridal bouquet as it makes a strong statement.
3. Posy Bouquet
The posy bouquet is a classic wedding bouquet choice that's petite enough to hold in your hands and consists mostly of flowers - rather than the greenery and foliage typically used in bridal bouquets. These bouquets are ideal for petite brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls. Common flowers used are roses, peonies, ranunculus, and daisies.
4. Nosegay Bouquet
In contrast to posy bouquets, nosegays emphasize greenery rather than flowers. But similar to posy bouquets, Nosegay is also highly traditional and popular. It’s elegant, classic, and smaller in size which makes it perfect for petite brides, bridesmaids, and older flower girls. Most commonly used flowers are Roses, Calla Lilies, Orchids, And Baby’s Breath.
