Hand-tied, nosegay, flower spray, cascading, Biedermeier, and pomander are just some of the popular bridal bouquet styles our artisan florists have come up with to manifest the love and happiness of soon-to-wed couples.
Now, why do we even bother styling or arranging the flowers? It’s aesthetic, yes. But then, is that all there is to it? So what if the Rose is beside a cluster of Baby’s Breath then surrounded with leaves, yada yada yada?
It was believed that for thousands of years, even way back B.C., somewhere in the Middle East, cryptic messages were communicated using flowers. Hence, the birth of Floriography or known as the language of flowers whence the meaning of red Roses is love, yellow Roses is friendship, Lilies is elegance, Jasmine is amiability, Orchids is beauty, Tulips is undying passion, so on and so forth. You see, we’re already using it but not completely appreciating it. When you like someone, when you want to say sorry, when you love someone, or when you want to congratulate someone, what do we usually give? Flowers. There are tons of reasons why we give flowers whenever we find that words aren’t enough to express ourselves. Like a love letter, our couples would surely want the bouquet to be as expressive and poetic as their love for each other can be. Thus, the birth of different bouquet styles, shapes and designs curated accordingly by florists. We now observe that as time passes by, our preferences — particularly those of the millennial brides — become more dauntlessly creative. Modern bouquets don’t just have flowers arranged on it but they also don precious stones, metals, pearls, twists and knots of ribbons, and whatnot.
