There are several wedding flowers arrangement that can feature in your wedding party. This can vary according to the members or individuals in your wedding party. The following are the most featured arrangements:
The Bridal Bouquet
This is the signature bouquet found in most weddings as most brides make this a part of their wedding day accessories. The wedding flower bouquet arrangement can match the gown of the bride or blend with the wedding theme. The bridal bouquets can be small or large depending on requirements.
Maid of Honour Bouquet
The maid of honour is that special friend of the bride who precedes the bride to walk down the aisle and is also an active part of the wedding plans. She can also serve as an official witness to the marriage certificate. The maid of honour has her bouquet that may be similar in theme to that of the bride but varies in size.
The size of the wedding party determines if the bridesmaids get bouquets of their own. The bouquets of the bridesmaids are also in tandem with that of the bride but theirs is smaller and simpler.
Most modern brides find the thought of parting with their bridal bouquet daunting and as a result, they get an alternative which is known as the toss bouquet. The toss bouquet’s purpose is for the bouquet throw so the bride gets to preserve her own personal bouquet. So that means for the bride, there are two bouquets that need to be on hand.
Flower Girl Petal Bouquet
If a flower girl is part of the wedding procession and she is required to walk before hand and spread flowers down the aisle, then she definitely needs her own bouquet on the wedding day. The petals can consist of wild flowers that fit into the colours of the day. The flower girl can be anyone from a young cousin or niece or the child of a friend who is special to you.
Although men would rather do with the flower arrangements, the boutonniere is a better option to lugging around bouquets. The groom, father of the groom, father of the bride, groomsmen and even ushers can be made to wear a simple flower pinned to the lapel of their wedding attire. The boutonniere in some cases serves as an official badge for being a party to the wedding.
The pin corsages are made for the members of the wedding party that are special to the bride. This normally includes the women of the couple’s family like the mother, aunts, and grandmothers. The corsages are often pinned to the dresses and are made to match that of the bridal bouquet.
The wrist corsage is an alternative to the pin corsage. It is a small arrangement of flowers that are tied on the wrist. The option of wrist corsage is preferred to that of the pin due to the fact that it does not poke through the dress.
