Bridal Bouquet Styles

LEAD FLORAL DESIGNER, FELICIA FROM JESSICA WONDERS EVENTS HAS CREATED SOME GREAT REAL LIFE EXAMPLES OF BRIDAL BOUQUET SHAPES & STYLES

Gone are the days when brides would all have the same round, traditional bridal bouquet. The modern bride can do just about anything she darn well pleases for her bridal bouquet; as well as the bouquets for her bridesmaids.

More and more brides strive for a different bouquet to carry; one that fits their personal style. So, we had a little fun at our shared studio space: Block Studios, owned by Jeannine Marie Photography. We put together different shapes and styles of bouquets to help you select YOUR style.

As creatives, we tend to be visual people. We know thatsometimes it helps our brides to see what we are talking about in the planning process of wedding floral design. So get inspired!
