Dear friends, in this article we will talk about the perfect bouquet for your wedding day.
The first rule is to match colors: colors chosen should complement the bridal gown, the wedding theme, and the clothing of the rest of the bridal party. Choosing colors according to the seasonal availability will allow you to both reduce costs and complexity and get a great impact.
Tipical italian tradition is that the groom has the flowers ordered and delivered to the bride on the wedding day. However, most of the time it is the bride to make the definitive choice.
In the last years many different and innovative styles have greatly widened the options for your floral choice: remember it is your own personal choice, based on your own preferences and on what works better for the theme you’ve chosen and your budget.
You can keep in mind a few general considerations for your bouquet: a short dress is best matched by a small round bouquet, large trailing bouquets are particularly suited to romantic style long wedding gowns, a minimalist flower approach is perfect for a simple dress.
Ask your florist plenty of questions, and expect a good florist to share your vision. A good florist can also provide a similar test bouquet to see how it would look together with your dress and help you decide.
Here’s some classic bouquet with which you can’t go wrong:
Bouquet Rotondo – Round bouquet
Compact and made of small flowers, it is a perfect match to a short dress. Ideal for any kind of height.
Bouquet Voluminoso – Large bouquet
Fits best a long dress, requires the bride to have a quite tall and slim figure.
Bouquet Ricadente – Trailing bouquet
Usually consists of flowers wired to a handle; best suits larger romantic dresses, it is both the most traditional and most formal form of bouquet shapes.
Bouquet a fascio – Posy
A posy is a minimalist arrangement of flowers that is quite small and usually hand-tied with ribbon; roses are the ideal flowers for this type of bouquet, but also long stemmed tulips work very well. Best choice for a civil ceremony and a two piece woman’s suit.
If your dress is white, white or very light color is still traditionally the most popular color for the bride’s bouquet. Different colors are also used in weddings today from soft pastels through to rich and vibrant colors.
