Choosing a Bouquet Style

Posted by Dogwood on Mar 30, 2010

When I started this crazy journey, I had no idea that I would have to make so many choices.  I am a very indecisive person, so some of these choices have been so hard! That is why I am happy that I have all of you to help me out! I recently had a phone meeting with a florist, and man was I not prepared! I thought we would talk flowers…it’s a florist right? Little did I know, it’s not just flowers, but how you present them.  To save each of you the time, I thought I would go through the most common types of bouquets, so hopefully you won’t be as clueless as I was.

There are more than 10 styles to feature your bouquet, here are some of the most popular.

1.) The round: It is the most classical and traditional bride’s bouquet… and as it implies, it is round! It typically is small in size and features only one type of flower.

2.) The Nosegay: This bouquet is round in shape. But, compared to the round, the nosegay has less flowers and more greenery.

3.) The Cascade: May also be referred to as a teardrop bouquet or a  waterfall bridal bouquet. Cascade wedding bouquets are rounded at the top and fall to a point.

4.) The Arm: This bouquet rests in the crook of your arm and can be referred to as the presentation bouquet or pageant bouquet. Flowers for this bouquet often have long stems and are left “as is” with a ribbon tied around them.

5.) The Freeform: This one can also be called a contemporary bouquet.  It does not have a specific or defined shape, has foliage coming out of the bouquet and usually utilizes tropical flowers.

6.) The Composite: This one is quite interesting and must take some serious time…A composite bouquet is made of petals wired or glued together to form a single large bloom with a ribbon tied to it.
