The bridal bouquet should be the first of the wedding flowers to be designed. Elements of the bridal flowers should be echoed in the bridesmaid’s bouquets (which should be smaller than the bride’s bouquet) and boutonnieres for the men in the wedding party, and also in the wedding centerpieces and floral décor around the wedding venue and reception hall.
Selecting the wedding flowers you’ll use, however, is just the beginning. Flowers are the raw materials for the bridal bouquet and wedding flower arrangements. Under a skillful hand, flowers that are pretty by themselves become stunning when combined with each other in the right way.
Florists can use their creative expertise to help brides to make good decisions about the general size and shape of the bridal bouquet. Bridal bouquets can be a nosegay, globe, cascade, or gathered. These varieties all look remarkably different from each other, so make sure you see pictures of each and understand the different uses of each. The florist can pair the perfect shape with the kind of flowers you love the best to make a really great bouquet.
