What is your wedding bouquet going to look like? Have you had a few ideas already? There are different bouquet styles and obviously an unlimited number of colours and flowers available.

This page will give you a few ideas with photographs taken at our most recent Edinburgh weddings.

There are two main traditional bouquet arrangements, but apart from that there are a lot more wedding bouquet styles available. Speak to your florist, they should have a large portfolio with photographs so you can find your ideal flower bouquet.

The Wedding Posy Bouquet

The posy is a round and small flower bouquet which can easily be held in one hand. Often the natural stems are wrapped in a beautiful satin, velvet or organza ribbon, and some are embellished with pearl pins or beading trims.

The Shower bouquet or the Cascading Bouquet

The cascading bouquets, also referred to as shower bouquets are the most formal and most traditional wedding bouquets. They are designed to spill gracefully over the bride’s hand and flows downward for an elegant and classic look. The bouquets tend to be roundish at the top and more pointy towards the bottom.
