Despite my love for greenery, I don’t use a lot of greens in my bouquets. Instead, I achieve texture with lots of interesting, smaller flowers and a variety of products. While green is beautiful, I often find it a bit too heavy for bouquets. When I do use some I choose longer, more delicate trailing stems to make it feel wild and elegant, rather than using big, leafy things.
I tend to make my bouquets more wide than round. As a result, they have this cascading look when they’re held to the side. I think it’s natural for a bride to relax and hold her bouquet on the side on her wedding day, so it’s important that they look good this way too! A video tutorial on bouquet design and an in depth pdf document with photos explaining my method is included in my digital course, The Nature of Wedding Floral Design.
