Bridal Bouquets

A brides bouquet is one of the most personal items she can have close to her on her wedding day. It is a representation of her style, personality, passion, and nature. It reflects who she is in a distinct and unique way.

Unique designs are at the forefront of every event. We take pride in creating beautiful styles that incorporate colors, elements, and textures in a way that will reflect you. There are some traditional styles of wedding bouquets:

Hand-tied - Also known as a Posy, is a design of any combination of flowers expertly placed together. The stems are often wrapped in 2-3 inches of ribbon, leaving the bottom part of the stems exposed. Hand-tied bouquets have a drastic range of style. Depending on the flower varieties chosen, it can be extremely formal, sleek and contemporary, airy and light, or natural and garden- inspired.

Nosegay - Traditionally the nosegay was a small round shaped bunch of flowers and herbs, often containing more greenery than other bouquets.

Cascade Bouquet- The Cascading bouquet, which is the most formal and traditional of bouquets, is designed to spill gracefully over the bride's hands as it flows downward for a sophisticated and stylized look, almost any flower can be used in this style.

Biedermeier Bouquet - The biedermeier bouquet is European-influenced. The blooms are tightly-structured and carefully-arranged in defined circular patterns of different colored flowers, each ring containing one type of flower.

Presentation Bouquet - A stunning alternative to more traditional styles of bouquets, it is very chic, and best suited to modern style weddings. Tastefully designed to be cradled in the bride's arm and can be as simple or as elaborate as she likes.

A Prayerbook or Bible Bouquet - The prayerbook bouquet is a small prayer book or bible used as the platform upon which a small bouquet is placed. The design may be a small cluster of flowers the size of a corsage which is placed on top of the prayer book and can be attached with ribbons or a small armature to prevent damage to the book.
