| Design Spotlight: Bridal Bouquets

All of the weddings we do tend to have a signature that can be summarized by the bridal bouquet. In terms of style, color, and vibe, the bouquet sets the tone for the rest of the wedding and speaks loudly as part of the bride’s personal wedding-day attire.

Historically, bridal bouquets were used a bit differently. Their main purpose was to give the bride a pleasant smell, since bathing was done extremely infrequently. After the ceremony, edible parts of the bouquet were then added to the wedding feast as a way to promote lust. Luckily, many of these traditions are no longer culturally relevant. But, there are still ways in which the bouquet can signal significant aspects of life. Aside from representing the bride’s personal style, the individual flowers chosen can also speak to geographic location, time of year, and other factors that are meaningful. In this way, the bouquet brings in the natural world and the turning of seasons while also accenting the bride’s personal expression. Below are 8 examples of bridal bouquets we’ve done in the past year. (As far as we know, none of these ended up in a pot of stew.)
