How To Choose The Right Wedding Bouquet Style

Basically, there are three wedding bouquet styles. The cascade, round or posy, and hand-tied.

The cascade, as the name suggests, is shaped like a waterfall, more flowers on the top with some flowers flowing downwards.It is mixed with some greeneries to get the natural look.

The round bouquet, of course is round in shape and have less greeneries but more flowers.The flowers can be of one kind ormultiple kinds as long as the colour balance is there.

The hand-tied wedding bouquet, which is gaining popularity these days, is more casual. It is made from a bunch of flowers tiedtogether with a ribbon and the stems are revealed.

How do you know which one is suitable for you?

Your selection will depend on three things:

  • your body size

  • your wedding gown style

  • the look that you want to carry

If you are self-conscious about your appearance on your wedding day, choosing the right wedding bouquet style can enhance the way you lookand probably hide some imperfections around your body.

Let's say you want to look slimmer on the big day, you would probably choose a cascade bouquet because of the bouquet shape itself.A cascade bouquet is roundish at the top and the pointy at the bottom.This slimming effect is best when you want to look slimmer.

If you are a tall person in nature, consider a cascade bouquet or a hand-tied bouquet. Never choose a round bouquet. A round bouquet will make you look taller. Added with the height of your heels, you will look extra tall.

A bride-to-be with big hips should go for other bouquets, except a round hand bouquet. A round bouquet will enhance your hips.To hide it, you should choose a cascade or hand-tied bouquet instead.

If you like a garden look or a casual look, the only wedding bouquet that can give you that is the hand-tied wedding bouquet.The flowers on the hand-tied bouquet will look like they have been hand picked by you from the garden. You will look natural carrying a hand-tied wedding bouquet.

If you have a petite body, choose a round bouquet. The size of the round bouquet and your body is balanced and you will look your best on your wedding day.
