The wedding party traditionally carries or wears flowers on the wedding day. This originally was a pagan tradition which most don’t know. Bathing was a luxury so the bride carried flowers for fragrance. Her attendants or bridesmaids carried similar flowers to confuse evil spirits. Present day flowers are carried out of tradition. There are many types of bouquets that a bride and her bridal party may carry.
A dense bunch of blooms hand-tied with ribbon.
A waterfall-like “spill” of blooms and greenery that’s anchored in a hand-held base. Looks like a miniature floral train.
A small, round cluster of flowers, all cut to a uniform length (also known as a tussy mussy).
A bloom-covered ball suspended from a ribbon, perfect for child attendants. Pomballs can also be used as decorations.
A nosegay made up of concentric circles of different flowers for a somewhat striped effect.
