The use of flowers throughout a wedding is a common occurrence. Though fresh is always best, there are other types you can use for your wedding cake. More>>
Creating the perfect bridal look is all about balance. There are so many elements to a bridal look that it is important not to let one draw too much focus – unless, of course, that is your aim. The dress is often the focal point of any outfit, but some brides prefer to pull focus to the flowers, their hair, shoes, or choice of jewellery. The flowers that you are drawn to often say a lot about your bridal style, so it can be a good place to start when choosing your wedding jewellery. Follow our guide to choosing your ideal wedding bouquet for your big day, and how to pair it with the perfect jewellery.
The posy bouquet is probably one of the most classic wedding bouquets you will ever see. This small, round bouquet is often tied with ribbon and is made up of a variety of flowers. Some people also weave in highly personal elements. To match this classic style, reach for your family heirloom pearls and create the classic bridal look.
A hand-tied bouquet is the most relaxed of the bunch, and often favoured by distinctive brides who are looking to bring a boho-chic vibe to their wedding day. Hand-tied bouquets made up of wildflowers or flowers of different height and sizes look particularly stunning when pair with vintage jewellery in bold hues. Look for vintage styles such as art deco pieces or bring a touch of Great Gatsby glamour with an Edwardian bracelet set with sapphires or amethyst.
A cascading bouquet is a dreamy flower arrangement that is perfect for anyone hoping for the classic fairy tale wedding. A cascading bouquet is often the focal point of your outfit, so you might want to opt for a discreet but classic pair of simple diamond earrings. If you’re particular about your jewellery, choose your own loose diamonds and have them set precisely as you want them for the ideal wedding jewellery look.
A composite bouquet is often made up of individual petals and results in a bouquet that looks like one giant flower. It is a more contemporary bouquet which is often monochromatic and classic in style. Complement this stunning arrangement with a delicate pendant necklace – perhaps something that has personal significance to you.
The round bouquet is a variation of the posy bouquet, but instead of varying heights and sizes, the bouquet is a perfect circle shape. This can often be quite a large bouquet, so you can balance your look by adorning your hair with jewelry such as a classic tiara, or a delicate hair clip for the more conservative bride. Pearls, diamonds and precious gems will look amazing alongside this particular bridal bouquet.
