Well, it's quite true that we lady as a bride or bride-to-be get to only carry a beautiful bouquet on our wedding or registration day :) *I miss my ROM and wedding bouquets so much!! Should have 'preserve' them! (I'll share with you ideas on how-to-preserve at the end of this post :)
For most of my bride or bride-to-be clients who have decided or complete custom making her wedding gown or dress with me, next thing I always get asked or questioned are: "What flowers should I get for my bridal bouquet?" "What shape of my bridal bouquet goes best with my gown?" "How big or what size should my bouquet be?" "Is this the correct way to hold my bridal bouquet?"

I might no be a florist or a flower experts (I'm a gown make!), but I LOVE flowers, I LOVE details and lucky enough my aunt is an experienced florist! Since I've in this wedding industry, I've learn many tips and bits from her! And today, my aunt and I will share with you some of our thoughts and I'll try to give ideas on how to choose your bridal bouquet and hopefully will answer the above common question about bridal bouquet :)

1) Decide on your wedding gown Then your bouquet
It's always better if you can decide on your wedding gown first before you ask your florist for a consultation. Suggestion on what type of flowers you wish to include in your bridal bouquet, the size of your bouquet and the style of flower arrangement are very much depends on your wedding gown's look and feel. An ideal bridal bouquet design will better compliment the silhouette of you in your gown and balance your whole look.

2) Bouquet's shape and size

Let say you have settle for a mermaid silhouette wedding gown with Chapel length train, you can consider a Nosegay or Posy style. Basically, if your gown style is the slimmer sheaths type, mermaid, narrow A-line, chiffon flawy, carry a bouquet that is not too big. Keep the size of your bouquet within your waist or hip area as a bench mark area.

If your wedding gown is a Ball Gown or a flare A-line with long train, a Cascade or bigger Hand-tied style of bridal bouquet can go quite well with your look. Bigger Round shape bouquet can also match with bigger gown. The basic idea is the bigger surface you have for your gown, you can go for bigger bridal bouquet. Yay! Meaning you can select and include more choices of flowers options for combination! But don't go over-board, usually we'll pick maximum three different types of flowers in a bouquet combination.

Now, If your gown style is a minimalism type, a Round shape bridal bouquet can give a highlight to your over all bridal look. If your gown have lots of embellishments or details like sashes, ribbon bow or ruches/gathers/foldings on your gown, keep your bridal bouquet simple. Simple as in, simple flowers, simple colors and simple design.

3) Colour of your bouquet and wedding gown

As we know wedding gown is usually ivory white. So your bridal bouquet is like a compliment art on a very pretty style white 'canvas'. You can choose to highlight or contrast it against your pretty white 'canvas' or just add a soft touch on it with cream or pastel colors. Or even goes with a  vintage, rustic or earthy concept on your pretty styled white 'canvas' - your gown :)

*P/S: Make sure the types of flowers you select, as most of flowers are in different seasons. Check with your florist on the availability of the flowers you desire on your wedding day.

2) How to hold your bouquet with picture perfect
♥ ones again our bride - Mary prepare to walk down the aisle with her bridal bouquet!  
If you are holding your bridal bouquet with both hands, always remember to rest both hands down right below your waist, and bouquet at your abdomen area. Most of the time, when brides hold their bouquet with two hands, they tend to carry it quite high which immediately lifts the shoulders up. This will not make a great picture, especially if you are wearing a strapless gown.

If you are holding your bouquet with one hand, make sure you rest your hand slightly away from your gown. Try not to press or squeeze your hand against your gown too near to avoid off balance shoulders. Relax and let your bouquet just sit naturally… doesn't matter the flowers are facing up or down… they'll still look picture perfect anyhow!

Lastly, enjoy your beautiful bouquet! If you are not tossing your bridal bouquet, you can consider preserve it! Let dry your bridal bouquet Or you can choose to do pressed-flowers and turn them in to beautiful bookmarks!
