Bouquets for Every Wedding Gown Style


Wedding season is full on, and today we want to talk to you about something you might haven’t considered yet. See, if you are about to get married or know someone that is, you probably have already started thinking about what kind of dresses and flowers you love, but have you considered if they go well together? If you haven’t, don’t worry. Here at Faviana we are glad to tell you how every bouquet shape compliments a dress style and which ones will make you feel your best on your special day, so you can celebrate it and yourself without a care in the world! If you want to know more about bouquets for every wedding gown style, keep reading:

Posy Bouquet with a Ballgown

The posy bouquet is a true classic, one of the most popular bouquets there are. These bouquets have a perfect half-circle shape and you can pretty much select any type of flower you wish, tying them together with a pretty fabric to match your dress or even a mix of lace or sequins, if you want to be creative!

This bouquet looks great with basically every style of dress, but we think it goes particularly well with a ball gown dress if you are really into the classic look. Ballgowns work very well for mid-height or tall brides since their voluminous skirts might make petite brides look even smaller.

Cascade Bouquet with an Empire Line 

If you really want to make an entrance, the cascade bouquet is for you. As you can see, this bouquet gets its name because the flowers are literally cascading out of your hands, making a line that visually goes straight to the floor.

Obviously, since it’s so large, this bouquet works best for brides on the taller side. You should pick a dress that it’s not too embellished on the front since you won’t want to cover it with the flowers, and that’s why a dress with an Empire waist which skirt starts directly after your bust would be a great option since visually it would flow very well with the bouquet.  

Asymmetric bouquet with a Mermaid Gown

Catie Stricker-Howell

The asymmetric bouquet is fun and eclectic, the perfect choice for non-traditional brides who want a look that is both different and not as put together. In this bouquet, flowers are arranged in odd forms, with each having their own shape.

This bouquet is great if you want to feature a great mix of flowers and greenery, for the perfectly imperfect look– in the world of bouquets, this would be like just like the just-out-of-bed, I-woke-up-like-this messy hair, styled to look effortless even though it did take effort. Want to take it to a whole other level? Pair it with a boho dress or a form-fitting mermaid dress to show your unique style.

Long stem bouquet with a Column Gown

Long stem bouquets resemble the posy, except that they look a little more natural and not as put together, with more emphasis in the stems instead of the flowers. The stems create a nice straight line, and just like the cascade, this style looks very well with taller brides. Want to create an illusion of length? Pair it with a simple, beautiful column gown that is elegant and practical.

So here they are, the best bouquets for every wedding gown style. Do not forget to check our guide about bridal bouquet meaning. Let us know your favorite style by tagging us on Instagram @glamandgowns, and Faviana’s Instagram @Faviana_NY and Twitter @FavianaNY.
