Flowers have always had a special meaning at weddings. Even in ancient Egypt, brides wore herbs with strong scents to ward off evil spirits. In the 19th Century, after the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, bridal bouquets became popular among ordinary people.
Each bride is special, that means that her wedding bouquet should be special as well. It is important to think about the colors of the bouquet in advance. Preferably, but not necessary it should complement all the main wedding colors. In this article we will talk about popular options of bridal flower arrangements.
Popular flowers for a wedding
Roses. This is a classic solution for any kind of celebration. White or cream buds look great in the photo and make any of the bride's wedding bouquets look beautiful.
Peony. This option is seasonal. And it is not always available in the flower shops. So, if you are a fan of this gorgeous flower, it is better to discuss with your florist about options to get fresh imported peonies to your event. Peony could make a really stylish and unforgettable bridesmaid flower bouquet.
Lilies. These flowers have always represented gentleness. Their presence in the wedding bouquet will not only give it volume and lightness, but also make a light perfume fragrant. We recommend choosing classic white or pale pink buds.
Orchid. The most minimalistic and delicate flower. The ability to choose from many colors will give you an opportunity to create an arrangement of your dream.
Summer flowers/Wildflowers. This option is good for romantic natures. A fresh flower bridal bouquet with small flowers will make the bouquet neat and very delicate. Sunflowers, compositions with lavender and chamomile, even cornflowers are the options we recommend to choose from.
Irises. Another seasonal flower with very delicate petals and beautiful bud color. The bridal flower arrangements can be created from classic purple varieties, as well as white or burgundy options.
Styles of Wedding Bouquets
Classic wedding bouquet. White classic wedding dress, long veil, nude makeup and flowers tightly folded into a rounded bouquet. As a rule, classic bridal bouquets are white or beige, sometimes pale pink. The most popular flowers for classic bouquet are roses and peonies.
Cascading Bridal Bouquets. This option is not as popular as classic round shape, because it looks really fragile but really gorgeous. These bouquets are usually arranged from orchids.
Rustic/Boho arrangements. This style is collected from blooms and plants of various sizes. In general, a rustic composition can contain a minimum of flowers and maximum of herbs and plants. Usually, bridesmaid dresses are white or cream, stylish and modern, cocktail or long one.
Provence bouquets. The name speaks for itself – the bouquet is simple but also interesting. The composition includes wild flowers and meadow grass. If you choose such a bouquet, the dress should be in the same style – something light, airy, made from natural fabrics.
Minimalistic style bouquets. Small bridesmaids wedding bouquets are very pretty and practical and can make a really big statement to the event. Lily of the valley is a great example of how small bouquet can look stylish and gentle in the same way.
Water and direct sunlight should not fall on the bouquet. You should remember that the arrangement without water is very gentle and take care of it. Do not put it on a hot spot, on wet grass, do not throw it up, even if the photographer really asks for it. Try not to put it on the side, because as a result, the delicate blooms will wilt and darken. Following these simple rules will help you to enjoy your bouquet longer.
