When it was time for me to pick my wedding bouquet, I didn’t know there were so many different kinds. All along I thought there was only 1 kind. I would research on the internet to find out the difference between a POSEY and a NOSEGAY. I realized there’s quite a few choices out there! For brides, it’s important to know them so you’ll have an idea when it’s time to pick your bridal bouquet.
Scroll down and you’ll see this colorful bouquet guide which I’m sure you’ll find handy someday. Then, continue reading for an individual bouquet guide.
The ROUND bouquet is a go-to choice for the classic bride. The flowers are tied tightly to create a very round shape at the top. It may be used for traditional or modern weddings where the flowers are bright and extremely colorful.
A HAND TIED bouquet is loose and soft, it gives a “freshly picked” look for the bride and matches well with casual or garden and outdoor weddings.
A PRESENTATION bouquet is carried across your arm. This may be good for those looking for something different, pageant-style, and special.
A POSY is a smaller variation of a bouquet that can be carried in one hand. These can be loose or wired and is usually for bridesmaids and members of the entourage. The WINTER bouquet is made of flowers that are quite difficult to source or possibly out of season. This bouquet also has pine, berries, and twigs. The NOSEGAY bouquet typically has fragrant flowers tied to form a round shaped cluster. Mixed with flowers are also herbs and greenery elements. The nosegay is suggested for any type of wedding and style. These photos were courtesy of BurnettsBoards and Sarah Park Designs.
