FYI Bouquet Guide


Pomander.

A pomander is a bloom covered ball suspended from ribbon that is commonly worn over to the wrist. These are perfect for flower girls or other children in the wedding party.


Crescent.

Curved like the shape of a quarter moon, the flowers in this bouquet are usually tapered at the two ends, extending from a larger grouping of flowers in the center. Flowers with multiple blossoms on long stems, such as orchids, are particularly suited for these types of bouquets.


Cascade.

This bouquet is made with flowers forming a waterfall of blossoms, starting with a large gathering at the top and tapering to an end. Flowers with multiple blossoms on long stems, such as orchids, are particularly suited for these types of bouquets.


Hand-tied.

Refers to the way the flowers are wrapped. It is usually a more casual arrangement of flowers that are loosely tied together by hand.


Nosegay.

A nosegay bouquet is a small, round cluster of flowers that are all cut to a uniform length. A nosegay is usually made with larger blooms in the center surrounded by smaller blooms, all tightly tied together.


Posy.

A small, rounded bouquet, the posy usually consists of smaller flowers that can be tied together tightly by their stems.


Arm.

A wedding bouquet of flowers bound and carried in the fold of the arm. Calla lilies work well for this type of bouquet.


Flower Tip

KEEP YOUR FLOWERS IN BALANCE WITH YOUR STATURE AND DRESS.

Large cascading bouquets can overwhelm a petite bride. A full ball gown wedding dress calls for dramatic flowers, not a posy.
