Just as wedding flowers come in all shapes and sizes so do wedding bouquets. When you are talking with your florist on creating your wedding bouquet you want to choose a bouquet shape that will compliment you and your outfit. Those who are petite should probably lean toward a smaller, more contained bouquet style. While those who are on the taller side you could opt for a more cascading style. One bouquet style that will work for just about everyone is the hand-tied bouquet. 

While there are many different styles to choose from here are the six most common wedding bouquet styles:
Beidermeier: Like a nosegay but made up of concentric circles of different flowers for a somewhat striped effect.
Cascade: A waterfall-like "spill" of blooms and greenery that's anchored in a hand-held base. While shorter than most, this is the kind of bouquet that Kate Middleton had for the royal wedding.
Hand-Tied: A dense bunch of blooms loosely hand-tied together. This is the most common and the easiest to make if you are looking for a DIY bouquet project.
Composite: A handmade creation in which different petals or buds are wired together on a single stem, creating the illusion of one giant flower.
Nosegay: A small, round cluster of flowers, all cut to a uniform length. Usually made with one dominant flower or color, nosegays are wrapped tightly with ribbon or lace for a delicate effect. 
Pomander: A bloom-covered ball suspended from a ribbon and perfect for child attendants. 

No matter which bouquet style you choose, you should know how to carry it so it makes you look stunning. You want to rest your arms just above your hip bones so the bouquet will be positioned close to your natural waist line. 

Which bouquet style is your favorite? What kind of bouquet did you have for your wedding?
