Great Wedding Bouquets

There are many different types, styles and shapes of bridal bouquets, have a look at the variations before deciding on the perfect arrangement for your wedding theme. It will open your eyes to new possibilities.
The History: The custom of bouquets has its origin in ancient times. Women carried aromatic bunches of garlic, herbs and spices to ward off evil spirits. In ancient Greece and Rome, the bride and groom wore a garland around their necks, symbolizing new life, hope and fertility. Traditional Celtic bouquets included ivy, thistle and heather. The garland was not made of flowers but of strong-smelling herbs and spices. The strong-smells were thought to have mystical powers and meant to keep away evil spirits.

Bold and Bright
Casual and cheerful zinnias in a range of vivid pinks form a delightful posy. Gold-edged pink and orange ribbon is knotted around brown taffeta for a festive detail.

Flowers are Forever
Flowers fade, but fabric lasts a lifetime. Use millinery blossoms to create a stunning keepsake to carry down the aisle. 

Red, White, and Green Bouquet
This bridal bouquet overflows with blooms, including dahlias, tulips, ranunculus, maiden-hair fern, nerines, scabiosa, and viburnum foliage

Bountiful Beauty
Exotic parrot tulips combine with fringed and viridflora tulips and double-petaled narcissus in a poetic bouquet, tied with a hand-dyed silk ribbon in complementary pastel shades. To keep the large array from flopping, stems were cut short. Since tulips are a thirsty flower, the bouquet should be kept in water until right before the ceremony.

Something Blue
A bouquet is particularly meaningful when it is the "something blue" a bride traditionally carries. Few blooms are truly blue, but the traditional hue turns up here in the flowers' names: 'Nikko Blue' hydrangea and blue lace flower mix with scabiosa and nigella.

Hope u will have ana idea on what to do when choosing ur wedding bouquet in ur big day.
With love,
