6 Wedding Bouquet Types


Every bride endlessly plans the colors of her bridal bouquet and dreams about what she wants in it – will it be roses? Lilies? A wonderful cluster of wildflowers? Each bride has a different vision of what makes the perfect bouquet. Some picture pure whites or soft pastels, while others want a joyful riot of colors. But few women realize that in recent years there have been developments that enable you to preserve your wedding bouquet long after all other flowers have faded.

Traditional silk flowers have been available for years, but the old style silks weren’t very realistic and didn’t fool very many people, and lost popularity in recent years. Today, however, there are new and different options that are either so realistic they could fool even the experts or bouquets that aren’t meant to mimic real flowers at all but be dramatic works of art on their own.


Here are six wonderful Wedding Bouquet Types for today’s bride:

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

1. Preserved Flower Wedding Bouquets :

Preserved flowers look and feel like fresh flowers, but have been specially treated and will last for years if kept out of direct sunlight and protected from dust and the elements. This means you can have a bouquet of what are actually real flowers without worrying about them wilting or drooping as the day goes on. Then, display them in a glass case or in your china hutch after the wedding and enjoy them for years to come.

The one thing to be careful of is that to maintain the color, these are usually dyed after preservation to keep the color bright, so don’t lay them on your gown or anywhere else for long periods of time that you wouldn’t want stained – sometimes the dye will run slightly, especially with deeper colors.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

2. Freeze-dried Wedding Bouquets:

Freeze-dried wedding flowers aren’t like the dried flowers that you’ve seen in those dusty old dried flower arrangements in your grandmother’s house. Freeze-drying is a much more advanced process that preserves the shape and curve of each individual petal so that the flowers look just like they do when fresh – none of that “shriveled” look with these!

The flowers will have a delicate, parchment-paper feel to them, but will be sturdy and last for years without fading or needing any special care.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

3. Silk Wedding Bouquets :

Today’s silk flowers are delicately veined to mimic nature’s artistry on each individual petal with none of the heavy plastic foliage or wiry stems you saw in the past. In fact, you should be careful to make sure no one tries to water any silk flowers in vases you have out at the reception if you go the silk route for your wedding!

Modern silk bouquets don’t contain flowers that are mass-produced. Instead, they are made up of individually hand-crafted works of art, assembled and dyed by hand so that no two are exactly alike. Details including delicate crystal dewdrops and lush overblown antique roses make these wedding bouquets stunning![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

4. Porcelain Wedding Bouquets :

This is the newest trend in wedding bouquets and is not only visually stunning but a conversation starter as well – the porcelain bouquet. These are created out of porcelain or bone china and are particularly suited to certain flowers, such as roses and lilies, which are exquisitely done in fine pastels and lend themselves to the soft curves of porcelain art.

If you love fine porcelain and are a collector, this is a once-in-a-lifetime piece you will cherish forever![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

5. Crystal Wedding Bouquets :

These don’t even pretend to actually resemble actual flowers, but rather to “represent” flowers, in that they usually have several clusters of crystals, each with a center, and arranged in sprays that cascade much like a bridal bouquet. But these are much more dramatic, designed for the bride who wants something other than flowers.

A bouquet made up entirely of glittering, flashing crystals will sparkle and flash all the way down the aisle. This is a wonderful choice for the thoroughly modern bride or the bride who dares to be different.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

6. Paper Wedding Bouquets :

Yes, they even have paper roses, just like the old song…but oh, so much prettier. And like the silk versions, hand-dyed and individually crafted for attention to detail.

The paper flowers will be less expensive than the true silk variety, but just as lovely and will last for years as well, so check out both varieties and see which you prefer if the price is a factor.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]
