Wedding Planning Flowers that are Fashionable!

Bridal bouquets reflect society’s current passion for gardening, individuality and a new love for colour. Many bouquets look unique because florists blended traditional flowers from the garden with more exotic flowers to make an exquisite arrangement.

The natural feel of the hand-tied bouquet of blossoms and greenery is very popular with modern brides.  The style fits today’s wedding styles. The nosegay,  a small, round, very uniform bouquet of like blossoms has been very popular with brides. It is best suited for compact uniform blossoms like roses and calla lilies. If not tied with ribbons, this style of bouquet may be placed within a tussy-mussy; an ornamental cone-shaped holder that was popularized in the Victorian era.

Ask your florist about purchasing or renting table top tussy-mussy holders to use your bouquet as stunning table decor.
