Wedding Flower Bouquet Shapes Flowers:

The round, hand-tied mound of flowers has become omnipresent at weddings. Here are some bouquet shapes that are equally lovely, but far less predictable.

Instead of forcing flowers into an unnatural shape, this bouquet allows for a more fluid, organic arrangement in which the blossoms and foliage are longer and more abundant on one side than the other.
The flowers arc outward from both sides of the center of the bouquet to create a balanced crescent moon shape.
A bountiful mass of flowers at the top of the bouquet slowly tapers downward—definitely a candidate for most dramatic. Here the flowers and greenery are arranged on a piece of driftwood to help achieve a teardrop shape.
Also referred to as a presentation bouquet, this style features long-stemmed flowers and rests in the crook of the arm. A bride with a petite frame needs a more compact version, while a taller bride can go all out.

Our favorite bouquets...

we love arrangements that emphasize one or two types of flowers massed to enhance impact and zero in on contrast. Here we have beautiful yelloween oriental lilies contrasted with a smoky black glass cube vase.

...with a minty arrangement. Soothing cool tones of silver and mint green and refreshing fragrant eucalyptus. This bouquet is more than something to look at!

Here's a tip for keeping cool...add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to a small bottle of water, spritz on as a body mist and feel refreshed!

AIFD National Symposium

Holly just returned from Boston where she attended the American Institute of Floral Designers National Symposium. Amazed, inspired and recharged to create lots of fun stuff!
