The bouquet in a small bouquet


It is called a bouquet precisely because it is very compact with a small size, generally composed of wildflowers with cultivated flowers. Its handle is tightly wrapped with a ribbon or raffia, cut evenly in length.

The Pompander bouquet

Also called handbag bouquet it is composed of a sphere that is covered with flowers, preferably of a single type of flowers. Unlike other types of bouquets, the pompander it can be worn both in the hand and around the wrist. In fact, a ribbon is applied on top of the sphere that acts as a cuff to be able to wear it.

The Posy bouquet


One of the most popular bouquets is undoubtedly the Posy bouquet . Many brides like it for its small size. Its dome is round and the handle is tied by a ribbon until it almost completely covers the stems.

The hand-tied bouquet



A classic choice with a medium to large size. A bouquet compact with a dome often variegated with flowers. The handle is tied loosely on top, near the dome, with a few turns of tape. This allows the stems to create a twist that makes the handle wider at the base. This makes the bouquet line more impressive. THE wedding photographers , use this peculiarity in the handle, to be able to photograph the bouquet standing up.

The Composite bouquet

One flower bouquet

This bridal bouquet is very special. At first glance it may seem that it is only one single flower, instead in order to create this effect you choose a single quality of flower and then use the individual petals, connecting them together thus creating a single large flower. The handle consists of a single stem, decorated with satin ribbon.

The Cascade bouquet

Handmade wedding bouquet

This bouquet is chosen for its great scenographic effect. Composed of a compact dome which then continues with a long tail, forming a cascade of flowers. To create this effect, the bouquet is connected to a support support. The handle is not visible and is covered by the tail that goes down to the front.

The Pageant bouquet

If you are a bride who wants a cascading bouquet but you want to stay sober, definitely the Pageant bouquet is for you. To make this bouquet, long-stemmed, large-diameter flowers are used. Flowers like i tulips or le calle , which have the weight of their own bud that stretches forward. This characteristic means that the bouquet takes the classic cascade shape but with much more simplicity. The handle is visible tied with a few turns of ribbon. For those who do not like calla lilies or tulips, this composition is also made with other flowers, so as to make the shape more rigid. In this case, the bouquet can be carried by placing it on the arm.

The round bouquet


This is the quintessential classic bridal bouquet. With its round and compact dome, it is often chosen by brides who don’t want to take too much risk. The handle is visible, tied tightly by a satin ribbon.
