If you research your bouquets before deciding on which ones to choose, you’ll find that their are more available than you thought. Multiple colored bouquets are beautiful, I feel they will add splashes of color in just the right amounts, through out your wedding.

Your Bridal bouquet is going to make your pictures stand out even more, and make your weeding day a very memorable one.

If your not keen on colored bouquets, there’s nothing wrong with tradition, it’s safe and it’s more important for you to be comfortable in your choices than for you to make a statement that goes against your personality. An all white bouquets are lovely, or a soft pastel one will be just as nice. Artificial bouquets are an added plus, after the wedding they may be used as an accent for the home, and make for a great conversation piece. Which will always give you a reason to reminisce about the best day of your life, when entertaining guest.

The bouquet is put together with a variety of different types of flowers. By tying them together gently,the bouquet can actually have some movement, or just the appearance of being free flowing. In order to save money you could do this your self, step-by-step instructions can be found on the Internet.

2.The Cascade Bouquet: The most traditional and formal style of the bridal bouquet. It resembles a cascade or waterfall with the flowers flowing downward. Traditional wedding flowers used in the cascade bouquet are white and include roses, stephanotis, white or calla lilies, and mingled with greenery. The bouquet has the appearance of being loose and free flowing.

3.The Round Cluster Bouquet: Round in shape and a bit smaller than the other styles. This bouquet can be created with all the same type of flowers or a mixture. A popular version of this bouquet is the tight round cluster in white or pastel pink roses. This type of bouquet usually has very little greenery.
