The two most popular styles of bridal bouquets are the hand tied posies and teardrop shapes, both these types of bouquets suit most wedding dress styles. Many flowers work well in hand tied bouquets including roses, hydrangea, gerbera, calla lilies, gypsophila, tulips and peonies. Flowers which work particularly well in teardrop and shower bouquets are calla lilies, orchids, roses, mini spray roses and eustoma.
I would normally suggest a scaled down version of the bridal bouquet, possibly with a slightly different colour balance. For example if the bridal bouquet is an even mix of purple and ivory flowers you may want the bridesmaids bouquets to have more ivory and just a hint of purple. If you are looking for an alternative option to bouquets then wrist corsages can look very pretty, especially if you have a lot of bridesmaids. For flower girls we also have cute wands available which can be made to co-ordinate with your wedding colours.
Usually either a single flower or a cluster of smaller flowers worn by the male guests. The groom often has a different colour or slightly larger buttonhole which matches one of the flowers in the brides bouquet.
Delicate sprays of flowers worn by the female guests (usually the mums). Corsages are often designed to be worn on a jacket, however they can also be made to wear on your wrist or to decorate a hand bag depending on your outfit.
Large arrangements in your wedding colour scheme which are usually used for ceremony decorations at the front of the church, near the altar or either side of your ceremony table at your wedding venue.
Table plan tree/ Wishing tree
Tall free standing ‘tree’ decorated with crystal hearts, pearl garlands and fairy lights. Can be used to display table cards listing the guests seated on each table and also in the evening to display wish tags written by your guests.
Top table arrangements
Traditionally a long and low flower arrangement positioned in the centre of the table (can also be used to decorate the ceremony table before your reception). Other options include cube vases with hand tied posies or small jars, cocktail glasses or votives of mixed flowers arranged along the table.
Depending on the style of your venue and the look you wish to create there are various options for high or low centre pieces. Low designs include posy arrangements, goldfish bowls, vintage birdcages, hand tied posies in vases or glass jars. Taller centrepiece options include, candelabras, martini vases and lily vases.
