Tradition has it that it is the groom or his mother who chooses it and brings it to the bride on the morning of the wedding: in reality we know that it is not so … in fact, imagine your reaction if your mother-in-law presented herself with that beautiful long and imposing bouquet that just does not suit your dress and your body?!?!
Not everyone gives the right importance to the result that can be obtained by playing with the shapes and colors of the flowers in the bouquet rather than those placed on the altar, along the aisle of the church or to set up the location where you have decided to celebrate with friends and relatives, but going ahead with the preparations you will find that you will not be able to do without it.
It is therefore worth knowing a few basic notions to ensure that your “companion of adventures” is up to the height not only of your dress, but also of your posture and suitable for the season.
If you have chosen to get married in the autumn months you will try to prefer compositions with warm colors, rust-colored leaves and berries.
Instead, look for the classic references to the snow if you have opted for winter: lily, snowdrop and the very elegant calla lilies.
Dare with colors to get a sparkling, energetic and fragrant bouquet if you get married in spring and summer! Tulips, freesias, hyacinths, daffodils, tanacetum … and so on and so forth !!
There is no real vademecum to consult, but it goes without saying that a bouquet that is out of place could also compromise the dress you have chosen … so try to direct yourself towards a waterfall composition only if what you have chosen is a challenging dress, perhaps with a train and if you are not too short.
The round bouquet is particularly suitable for those who have chosen a short and sober dress: it is not large and can also be worn on the wrist (although as a type it is tending to disappear)
Long stems and elegant movements: this is the right combination to be able to choose the bundle bouquet that must be worn leaning on the arm
Then there is the open bouquet: it contains large quantities of voluminous flowers and is usually worn at waist height.
A curiosity: have you ever wondered where the custom of the bouquet comes from? This custom comes from the Arab world that wants the bride to be adorned with orange flowers.
Finally, do not forget to throw it: gather your friends, turn your back on them and go … it will be a good omen for the lucky one who will win it!
