You’ll Love These Modern Takes On Traditional Bouquet Shapes
January 10, 2017 | nicole
When you’re pinning gorgeous bouquet after bouquet, do you ever notice the bouquet shapes you’re drawn to? Beyond the peonies and protea that make a bouquet catch your eye is the silhouette of the arrangement. Like every flower, each bouquet is a unique size and shape with its own personality. You may be familiar with traditional bouquet shapes, but these modern arrangements will take your breath away!
There may not be anything more romantic than a cascade-shaped bouquet! For a modern look, choose a color palette that combines soft pastels with bold, darker hues. Our favorite cascade bouquets are dripping with greenery, so focus on unique leaf shapes that make a big impact.
A posy bouquet can be held in one hand (so you can use the other to hold your sweetie). A petite bouquet can still be a total show-stopper, especially if you take a diverse approach to the small space. Play with balance, shape, texture, and color on a small scale, and remember that less is more!
They say your wedding is the most important day of your life; if you’re going to have a Miss America moment, it may as well be now! The pageant bouquet is characterized by its long stems that allow it to lay gracefully in your arms as you float through your wedding day. For a modern look, go a little wild and lean into the overgrown shape.
Perfect for an outdoor or bohemian wedding, a hand-tied bouquet is wildly arranged to achieve that “found in nature” effect. Get the look with lush blooms and unkempt greenery loosely tied with silk ribbon (or a bandana!).
Round bouquets may not be thought of as the most contemporary shape, but these modern takes will show you otherwise! Achieve an updated look with plenty of texture and diversity. We love the look of mostly-closed peonies and ranunculus, rounded succulents, plenty of greenery, and a few untamed pieces.
