It’s officially wedding season and brides to be are visiting their local florist to design their bouquets for what is sure to be the happiest day of their life. Here, Ali Garba, and his chief designer, Bruce, of Buds ‘N Blum in Milwaukee discusses the most popular bridal bouquets of the year.
Cascading bouquets, also known as shower bouquets, teardrop bouquets or trail bouquets, came around in 1910, replacing the posy bouquet, and grew in size by 1920. Cascading bouquets reached their peak between 1920 and 1930.
Today, cascading bouquets are the most formal and traditional type of bouquets Garba notes. This type of bouquet will make any bride look timeless and graceful as the flowers (which you can use any type) flows downward providing the sophisticated look traditional brides are looking for.
Flower Hoop Bouquet
One of the latest trends in the wedding industry is rustic chic weddings being held outdoors or in barns. The flower hoop bouquet, also known as the wreath, is the perfect bouquet for the rustic chic bride. This simple gathering of flowers, Queen Anne’s lace, phlox and cosmos work best, is then bound with ribbon with the stems exposed.
For the budget friendly brides, the ballerina bouquet is the perfect solution as it offers a cheaper floral design that will still have the same awe effect as the bride walks down the aisle. This bouquet is also perfect for the bride who loves tulle as this round bouquet contains lots of tulle and very few flowers.
Flower Bracelet Bouquet
The flower bracelet or wrist bouquet is worn on the wrist, instead of being carried, which frees up the hands of both the bride and bridesmaids. With this, the style is small, with the flowers safely secured to a base attached to an elastic band. Any type of flower can be used and is commonly adorned with ribbons and beads.
