The end­less list of flow­ers you can choose from aside, what about the dif­fer­ent bou­quets? Here’s a quick run­down:

New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -


These bou­quets are small and dainty enough to be held in one hand. A great op­tion for brides who want to trim some dol­lars from their bud­get or who sim­ply want their wed­ding gown to take cen­tre stage. Also known as the arm sheaf, the pageant bou­quet gen­er­ally con­sists of flow­ers and green­ery with long, slen­der stems to rest in the crook of your arm. It’s an­other op­tion for brides who are look­ing to wow. The most tra­di­tional and classic shape to choose from, a round bou­quet usu­ally con­sists of just one or two pretty and wide­bloom­ing flow­ers such as pe­onies or roses, which are then tightly packed to­gether. If you want to make a state­ment, you can’t look past an over­flow­ing cas­cade bou­quet. This bou­quet is ar­ranged as a pretty bunch at the top, with loose green­ery and flow­ers flow­ing dra­mat­i­cally to­wards the floor. Per­haps one of the most pop­u­lar bou­quet styles right now, a hand-tied bou­quet is ar­ranged loosely to look nat­u­ral and un­struc­tured, styled to look as if the blooms have just been gath­ered from a nearby field.
