Traditional White: Mini white calla lilies paired with delicate sweet peas to create a unique take on the traditional white bouquet. The clustered calla lilies sit in the center, surrounded by a cloud of fragrant, white sweet peas and tied with a simple white satin ribbon.
Vintage: Rose-centered bouquets take a vintage turn with amnesia roses and silver hued dusty miller. An alternative to all-white roses, these amnesia roses have a silvery lavender hue which compliments many different colors. The dusty miller surrounding the roses completes the classic look and feel of a long-forgotten era.
Mix It Up: Wedding bouquets these days don’t just contain flowers. Your party decorator or florist may suggest other non-floral elements such as Swarovski crystals, berries, feathers, stems and other decorative wood pieces. A popular choice is echeveria, which can be shaped like a flower and can come in different colors such as green, aubergine and gray.
Cascade Bouquets: This bouquet style features flowers that descend below the main portion of the bouquet design. The voluptuousness of the bouquet is often the main feature of the wedding costume. Cascade bouquets are most often used in formal and traditional weddings.
Hot Hues: Brides craving color are opting to use many shades of a single hue, such as mixing pale pink peonies and hot pink ranunculuses with other flowers that reflect the pinks for a richer look. For those who like this look but want something more striking than white, today’s stylish all-red bouquets mix shades of burgundy and near-black with slightly brighter crimson blooms.
All Tied Up: Although the most brides (and, in particular, those seeking a single-flower style) likely prefer the look of exposed stems, the majority of today’s bouquets come elegantly wrapped. To help modernize the look of classic ribbon-wrapped stems, florists layer ribbons in different colors or textures. Another popular approach is to personalize the bouquet. Wrap the stems with an heirloom handkerchief (perhaps one the bride’s grandmother carried on her wedding day), adorn the bouquet with a locket bearing a photo of a deceased relative, or wrap the stems in a ribbon embroidered with your monogram or signature motif.
