Many couples are now choosing silk flowers for their wedding day as they offer lots of advantages to fresh flowers. In this post I will go through the different items you may need for the members of your bridal party and some of the design options available.
The bride would normally carry a bouquet, which can be designed in a style to suit their dress. The most popular bouquet shapes are the round and boho unstructured hand tied bouquets and the trailing shower style. If you are considering whether to have a particular colour I would normally recommend including some flowers in a colour to match with the bridesmaids dresses or having a neutral white and/ or ivory wedding bouquet. Depending on the theme of your wedding you may want a bouquet designed in a loose, rustic style with lots of greenery, a natural posy bouquet with different textures and hints of greenery, or a more modern compact arrangement with no greenery.
Your bridesmaids are normally given smaller hand tied bouquets designed to co-ordinate with the bride's bouquet. You could also consider hair flowers, such as flower hair clips or flower crowns for your bridesmaids to wear.
Child bridesmaids and flower girls
If you have a younger child bridesmaid or flower girl we have a selection of designs you can choose from. Depending on their age you could have a mini bouquet designed to match either the bride or bridesmaids' bouquets, a flower cluster bouquet or a pretty star wand. We can also make delicate flower crowns and wrist corsages for children.
Groom and Groomsmen
The Groom's buttonhole is often designed with a single main flower and simple greenery but can also be made up as a cluster design including a selection of smaller flowers. The cluster style has become more popular for rustic, country garden themed weddings, as they create a less formal look. The buttonholes for the Best Man and Groomsmen are usually made slightly different to the Groom's buttonhole, either by having a different colour or flower type.
Mothers, Fathers and Grandparents
It is traditional for the father of the bride to have a buttonhole flower along with the father of the groom and grandads.
For the Mother of the bride and Mother of the groom we would normally recommend jacket corsages designed to match with the buttonholes but with more delicate flowers, or they can be designed to co-ordinate with their outfit colour. However if they would prefer not to have a pin corsage due to their jacket or dress fabric we can also create wrist corsages as an alternative.
