Many brides spend months planning which types of flowers they want for their bouquets and floral arrangements, but did you know there are many different types of bouquet styles to choose from, too?
Choosing the right flowers for your wedding day is a big job, but you also need to know how to choose the right type of wedding bouquet. The look of your bouquet, as well as the look of the bouquets the bridesmaids carry will impact the look of your ceremony and your pictures.
Bouquet Styles to Choose from:
The most common wedding bouquet styles are round, cascade, and hand-tied styles. Below you’ll find which ones suit you best.
Are you tall, slim, or do you have a petite frame? Choose a round bouquet.
Round bouquets are often made of mostly flowers, with less greenery or fillers. Due to the shape and style of this bouquet type, it’s crucial to choose flowers that blend well together, or it will look strange and it can be distracting. If you have wide hips or are curvy, avoid this type of bouquet.
Do you have curves or want to look slimmer? Choose a cascade bouquet.
Cascade bouquets are designed with a majority of the flowers on top, and they cascade downward like a waterfall. They have a very natural look and can work wonders for women who are curvy or who want to look slimmer. They are usually mixed with a fair amount of greenery, which provides a nice contrast with the flowers and your white or ivory gown.
Are you of average height or weight, or are you having a casual wedding? Go with a hand-tied bouquet.
Hand-tied bouquets are favorites of brides who have a casual or semi-casual wedding ceremony. They are bound together with decorative ribbons and are usually round or full in shape. They work with any body type and they’re ideal for outdoor or beach weddings.
When deciding how to choose the right type of wedding bouquet, keep your body type and the style of your wedding mind.
