The Role Of Flowers

by | Bride, Flowers


A wedding can involve many many flowers. I love flowers and am personally a big fan of the real thing! (The ‘silk’ vs ‘real’ debate can be left for another time!)

The typical arrangements of flowers used for a wedding are:

Bridal Bouquet

Bridesmaid’s Bouquets

The bridesmaid’s bouquet can compliment the bride’s bouquet by using similar textures- like this arrangement by Rachel Read Florist


Boutonnieres (also known as buttonholes)

Your flowers, where they go and what you choose is simply limited by your imagination (and the season!) The possibilities are endless- bouquets can be a posy or a trailing one. Flower girls can hold flower balls or a basket of petals- that’s just the beginning! Flowers are a beautiful way to add colour, scent and style to any wedding.
