The Wedding Bouquet

Just like there are plenty of beautiful wedding flowers to choose from, so are there different types of wedding bouquets.

Read on for some wedding inspiration and to know all about the six kinds of wedding bouquets. How will you know what suits you best? Remember to take into consideration your dress, your body shape and size, and of course, your wedding theme. If you’re tall, don’t get a tiny bouquet that will get lost in your wedding dress; and if you’re short, don’t get a large bouquet that will overwhelm your size.


1 – Posy bouquet

This classic style is small and round, usually made with smaller flowers that are either tied or wired together. If you want a simple bouquet that will complement, not compete, with your wedding dress, then this is the bouquet for you.

2 – Teardrop bouquet

This is a posy bouquet that has a trail of flowers creating a teardrop shape, with the trail no more than 35cm.

3 – Cascade bouquet

A less structured teardrop bouquet, the cascade is a lot longer and has multiple trails cascading from the top. This is perfect for garden and beach weddings and is usually made with lilies or orchids.

4 – Princess bouquet

For the fairytale princess bride. It is a larger and wider cascade bouquet, with many trails of flowers.

5 – Trail Bouquet

Almost the same size as the princess bouquet, except the only trail is made up of foliage. Extra flowers can be placed throughout the trail, making it less expensive than the princess bouquet. This is fantastic for outdoor weddings.

6 – Arm spray

A casual bouquet style, it is made up of long-stemmed flowers. The length of the bouquet can be toned down with foliage. This is great for brides looking for something more remarkable than the posy.
