When you imagine your wedding bouquet sailing through the air as you toss it toward eagerly waving hands, how do you see it?

There are thousands of different types of bouquets, each one stunning and unique. There are a lot of choices to make when it comes to creating the wedding bouquets, the flowers and accents play a big part, but also if they will have long or short stems, how the bouquet will be wired together or if it will be placed in a holder. Every little detail is thought of by the florist and needs your approval.

The whole point of a bridal bouquet is to accentuate the wedding gown. You do not want the bunch of flowers to take focus away from the dress. If you have a Victorian style dress or one that is on the petite side, a small elegant short-stemmed one tied with a ribbon will accent the gown and bring it all together.

If your wedding gown is elaborately made out of layers of satin and lace with a long train, you may want to choose a wedding bouquet of larger flowers known as cascade style. The petals of the flowers are tear shaped and flow downward toward the gown.

You should also consider the brides body frame when choosing a wedding bouquet. There are certain types that do not compliment certain body types.

Timeless Moments Flower Preservation

Most brides want to preserve their wedding flowers. There are several ways that you can do this. Air drying and pressing the bunch is the oldest used method of preservation today. When you use these methods, your flowers will not look fresh; they will lose their color and finally wither away. This will also happen if you use dry silica gel.

The best way to preserve the flowers is to freeze dry it. This not only preserves the colors, but also helps it hold its shape. This method needs to be done by a professional, but your bouquet will last a lifetime.

When considering preservation of your wedding flowers, remember to avoid putting in certain flowers like some orchids to make the flowers stay as fresh looking as possible.

Summary:
The most important part of choosing a wedding bouquet is the final arrangement. You can go with the traditional one or an unconventional one-of-a-kind work of art.  It is your decision. Those who have a wild side have often chosen the unconventional! Just remember, your bouquet will be in your wedding photos forever, so choose correctly.
