Your bridal flower bouquet is probably the most important and memorable bouquet of flowers you shall carry in your whole life. A bride’s flower bouquet is an integral part of the wedding and can compliment your wedding dress and bridal styling together harmoniously.

At Moss n Stone, we have assisted hundreds of brides select the perfect flower bouquets for their wedding. Here are some tips for choosing yours!

Size Matters

The size of your bouquet is an extremely important aspect to consider. You do not want your bouquet to be too small, so that the detail won’t be seen in photos. Large bouquets can make a statement and be truly eye-catching, but if your bouquet is too big it could hide special details on your dress, obscure your waistline and even take away from your appearance. Consult your florist to ensure you are getting the correct balance.

Consider The Season

What season will you be getting married in? Some flowers are not available during certain seasons, or are exceptionally expensive if they are available.

Inspiration From Your Wedding Dress

Most brides choose their wedding dress before their bridal bouquet and this is because it is far easier to choose a bouquet based on your dress than the other way around. Your florist will be able to help you pick out a bouquet that compliments the colour and style of your wedding dress. The colour is exceptionally important as mixing different shades of whites and creams takes an expert that is experienced.

That Personal Touch

To make your bridal flower bouquet just that extra bit more special, why not include a personal touch? Whether it’s adding a family brooch, or choosing flowers that are significant to you and your family, these small details will go a long way. Other unique touches could include wrapping the bouquet in a special lace, or adding something new, old, borrowed or blue.

Comfort is Key

You may be holding your bouquet for hours on end, so ensure that it is comfortable! An overly heavy bouquet can be difficult, and you need to ensure natural looking photos. Also speak to your florist about ensuring the stems of your bouquet are long enough and are finished with fabric or ribbon that is comfortable to grip properly.

The Perfect Picture

Pictures of your bouquet are a must! Close-up pictures are an essential. In group and couple photos ensure that you have some with you holding your bouquet in the centre of your body and others with you holding your bouquet at your hip so that you can show off your dress.
