How To Choose The Right Bouquet For Your Wedding

So you’re at the stage in your planning and you’re thinking about which style of bouquet to choose to compliment your gorgeous dress. The choice can be difficult with so many options out there and different flowers to choose from. Some flowers look better in a different style of bouquet to others.

The most common choices are the Posie or the Teardrop. There is also the Arm Sheath bouquet but this is a little less common among today’s brides. Let’s go through a few of the advantages about each style.

The Posie

The most common choices are the Posie or the Teardrop. There is also the Arm Sheath bouquet but this is a little less common among today’s brides. Let’s go through a few of the advantages about each style.

  • They are much less fragile and can be layed flat on a table (as seen in photo above) without damaging the flowers.
  • They’re great for small/petite brides who don’t want something really big and bulky. A larger posie is great for taller brides as well.
  • Posies are easily scaled down to create a smaller version to compliment the bridesmaid’s dresses and even the flowergirl.
  • It’s a great choice if you don’t want your dress and your flowers to compete against each other.

Popular flower choices for this style are: Roses, Peonies, Baby’s Breath, Tulips, Lillys, Gerbras & Sunflowers.
