Modern bouquet is a bouquet made up of exotic flowers and tropical foliage.
Cascade also known as fountain, shower, or waterfall bouquet. This type of bouquet is rounded at the top with a stream of flowers flowing over the bride's hand for a cascading effect.
Any type of flower can be used to create this style of bouquet. But most commonly used are large petaled blooms such as roses, calla lilies, lisianthus and orchids. This type of bouquet is the most formal and traditional types of bouquet.
Arm Sheaf also known as presentation bouquet is a bouquet with long-stemmed flowers that the bride cradles alongside her inner arm.
Flowers often used for this kind bouquet are orchids, long-stemmed, roses, gladiolus, delphiniums and calla lilies.
Longer bouquet arrangements like cascade and arm sheaf with fuller flower groupings is suited for a taller bride. While a more compact bouquet will suit a shorter stature bride so that the bouquet can compliment the bride's dress instead of obscuring it.
The general rule is that the larger the dress the larger the bouquet. However you must also consider your height too. Fuller larger bouquet are generally for taller brides as it will look too big for a shorter bride therefore making it the focus of attention instead of the bride's gown; and the bride herself of course.
cascade is also suited for a romantic style wedding gown where it can't overpower it.
A hand tied bouquet is most suited for a simple wedding dress at a contemporary wedding.
Pomander bouquet is suited for a slim fitting gown.
Finally you don't have to carry a bouquet if you don't want to. If you'd rather have your hands free on your wedding day then you can use a flower bracelet instead. Wedding flower bracelet also known as wrist corsages or wedding flower jewelry consist of small groupings of flowers usually orchids or roses attached to an elastic wristband.
Flower bracelet is especially suited for a casual, short-hemmed wedding gown.
