Bridal Bouquets

Flowers can make one of the biggest impacts on the wedding. And, of course, the most important floral arrangement you’ll have will be your wedding bouquet. This will be the most photographed and most memorable floral piece. When planning your bridal bouquet, you want to be sure to pick a bouquet that will represent your personality. When choosing your bouquet, there are a few things to consider: the size of your body, your wedding gown, and your style.
There are 3 basic kinds of bouquets: cascading, arm-held, and round. The flowers pictured below were done by The Canterbury Place's preferred vendor, Stacie Hardy of La Belle Fleur.

This bouquet features flowers that cascade down like a waterfall. This look is roundish on the top, and then comes to a point at the bottom. This is the most traditional and the most formal of all the bouquet types. This style best suits tall girls wearing flowing, full dresses.

This bouquet features flowers that are laid across the crook of the arm, and generally feature very long stems. This design is a bit more informal, but has been growing in popularity in recent years.

Round bouquets are, by far, the most popular. This bouquet can be as simple or elaborate as you would like it to be. Despite it’s name, the bouquet does not have to be perfectly round. The design can be as tight for a formal look or loose and airy for a whimsical look.

Whatever you choose, make sure that your bouquet reflects your personality and incorporates your colors in a creative way. After all, this will be a focal of the day and one of the most photographed arrangements you will ever have!
