“Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound” –Edwin Curran

The origins of a bride carrying a bouquet of flowers can be traced back for centuries. Although the beginnings of the bridal bouquet are rather blurred, history has it that the custom initially stemmed from the bride’s need of concealing her body odor during her wedding day. In ancient Rome, flowers were symbolic of new beginnings, hope for fertility and fidelity.  Other customs had a different approach and would require brides to carry spices in lieu of flowers to ward off bad spirits.

However, in this time and age, wedding bouquets have a more symbolic significance behind it other than a makeshift deodorant or as an ornament used to ward off evil. Many may be under the impression that the bride’s wedding posies are purely for visual aesthetics—a lovely prop for photo sessions. But apart from painting a striking photograph of the bride on her wedding day, carrying one seems to prevent the bride from needlessly fidgeting with her fingers.

 

 

 

 

Considering all of these, it would appear that the bridal bouquet makes the spectacular complementing accessory to the bridal gown. In essence, if the bride were a cake, her floral bouquet would be her centerpiece which means thorough consideration is needed in selecting one. The kind of wedding bouquet a bride selects is a reflection of her personality as well as her style and a lot can be said about the kind of bouquets she chooses. Take a gander at the five favorite bouquet styles down below and see what it says about the type of bride you are.

1) Bohemian Chic Inspired Bouquet

If you want something a little offbeat and probably a bit outlandish, a bohemian chic inspired bouquet is the perfect finishing touch to your wedding gown. Essentially, this would mean you are a free-spirited bride with an unbridled passion for nature, and your bouquet would likely spell that for you. Your ideal wedding is something that does not conform to society’s traditional norm but is one that you have probably thought of yourself. Romantic, vintage and ethereal are just three things that would describe your perfect wedding and more often than not, you are the sort of bride who has no regard for the rules and would rather make a bold statement than follow trends.

You are the type of bride who would like to add a bit of sparkle in everything that you do to make a lasting impression, and your wedding would be just as sparkly and elegant. Everything about your wedding will be likely as extravagant as the bouquet you will be carrying

More often than not, this is the choice of bouquets of brides who are chronic do-it-yourselfers. This bouquet is a combination of not only diverse flowers but would even include ferns, branches, colorful petals—all just to achieve that perfect wildflower wedding bouquet—a true expression of a bride who loves bringing the outdoors indoors.

4.)    Rustic Vintage Inspired Bouquets

For the bride with a penchant for romance and a relaxed atmosphere, the rustic bouquet is ideal. This is for the bride who is incredibly low-key and low-maintenance and who would not mind shopping at thrift stores or even adding pre-loved pieces to her home and wardrobe. Her bouquet may even carry something incredibly personal to her such as a vintage brooch with sentimental value.

There is no other word to describe a bride who prefers this kind of bouquet other than traditional. For the brides who love to play by the rules and go by the books, their wedding bouquets should be nothing short of the classic and timeless kind of posies. Her bouquet would consist of pastel colors, pink hues, and apricots that would make it the perfect finishing touch to her gown that is just as traditional. These brides believe that less is more and that everything classic and timeless would always be in fashion.
