When a bride chooses her bouquet, it represents her style and personality, setting the tone for the rest of the wedding. There are many different styles of bridal bouquets including the cascade, teardrop, round, traditional, and wildflower bouquets. All of Blooming Blossoms bridal bouquets can be made to hold in one hand. The stems can be wrapped with sentimental items. For instance, some brides like to use a piece of their own dress or a relative’s dress. Jewels, brooches, and rosary beads can also be used to decorate the stem.
Cascading bouquets are made in a bridal holder. They normally feature a rounded top of flowers with the flowers flowing down to around the mid-waist. They are normally 2 feet or more in length. Additional features can include ribbons and jewels mixed in with the flowers.
