A few weeks ago we introduced you to bridal cuffs by Diann Valentine, see HERE. Bridal cuff is made from a log chain of crystal with small flowers attached to it and worn on the wrist. More corsage than bouquet, this style is comprised of a small floral arrangement. Which is a great alternative to a traditional bouquet. Worn by brides and bridesmaids who want the look of a bouquet, but want the freedom of having their hands free. The bridal cuff can be made in any combination of flowers and is occasionally complimented with ribbons and beads.

They are long stemmed flowers and foliages that the bride carries cradled in her arm, also known as a presentation bouquet. It is a stunning alternative to more traditional styles of bouquets, as it is very chic, and tasteful.

This is one of the most popular style, these classic bouquet round and neatly tied together with ribbon of bouquet holder, and features a variety or a mixture of flowers. The posy became popular for brides in the Victorian era, so it is seen as one of the most traditional bouquets. If the posy is made with stem-on flowers it can be hand tied for a more rustic finish; if the stems are removed, floral wire helps to keep the arrangement in place and the blooms become more visible.

The biggest advantage of having a posy is that it can be held in one hand — and it’s easy to throw at the end of your big day, because it’s small, round and compact!

8. Composite Bouquet:


A composite bouquet of petals individually wired together to create one big, beautiful bloom. It is simple. It is dramatic. It is sophisticated. Also called Glamelia bouquet.
