In this article, one of the top wedding planners in Greece Make Happy Memories listed down various bouquet inspirations that will suit the most popular types of brides. Read further to learn more which one suits you perfectly.
If you love tradition and timeless celebrations, then you’re a classic chick. A traditional posy bouquet of old-time favorites like roses, orchids, hydrangeas, and tulips is for you. Add a satin ribbon or a vintage charm as accent for a personal touch. Clutch this as you walk down the aisle in a gorgeous white wedding gown and wow your guests.
Free-spirited and fashionable, a starburst bouquet of wildflowers, and greenery suits a bohemian bride. You can go with a monotone route by choosing various flowers in similar colors or go with something fun and quirky with splashes of hues and textures.
Sleek and chic, a fresh and contemporary bouquet completes a modern bride. Choose an asymmetrical shape and get artistic with unique flowers of different shapes and textures to create something that is uniquely you. You can also incorporate non-floral details like feathers, ribbons, and charms.
A princess deserves the prettiest. Pattern your blooms from real-life princess bouquets like Diana’s cascade of gardenia, myrtle, orchids and ivy or Meghan’s forget-me-nots, sweet peas, jasmine, and astrantia. Don’t forget to incorporate the flowers of princesses – lily of the valley!
Having a destination wedding in Greece? Unleash your inner goddess with a bouquet of classic Mediterranean flowers. Bougainvillea is a popular choice for its vibrant colors and unique shape. You can also use florals of your preference, just add some summery vibe and texture by incorporating fruits in the bouquet like kumquat, apples, figs, pomegranate, and cherries. The secret is having your florist and wedding planner in Greece work together to create the most striking bouquet for you.
Go nautical and nice as a beach belle with a bouquet of sunshine-colored blooms like sunflower, yellow roses, and calla lilies. You can also mix in blues and whites like roses and tweedia. Lastly, for a different approach, you can use a bunch of dreamy and delicate pampas grass as your bouquet. It’s best to hire a talented florist like Foxgloves Flowers to effectively pull off this style.
If you’re into all things exotic and jungle romance, a loose bouquet of colourful and vibrant tropical blooms like birds of paradise, proteas, coxcomb, and anthurium. Complete the look with lush greens like monstera, ferns, palm leaves, and aralia.
