A flower bouquet is a creative arrangement of collected flowers. It comes in different kinds such as nosegay, crescent, and cascading bouquets. Birthdays or anniversaries are some special events that flower bouquets are frequently used.
We also find them extensively used in weddings. Traditionally the bride will hold the bouquet, and the Maid of Honor, usually the best friend of a bride who leads her bridal party will hold it during the wedding ceremony.
Incorporating a few non-floral elements like ostrich feathers can give a bouquet a whole new shape and lend a chic Great Gatsby style to your blooms.
The bride will toss it over her shoulder after the wedding, and whoever catches the bouquet is believed to be the next line to be married. The Golden Apple of Discord myth may be related to this practice. Flower bouquets, before being used by brides in wedding, were used in different form of art such in paintings and on pottery as decorations in the seventeenth century and possibly earlier.
In years past, as a matter of tradition, an upper class bride was required to hold a bouquet of roses or flowers as she walked down the aisle to prevent body odor from spreading and to drive away evil spirits. Wedding bouquets arrive in lots of kinds of flowers such as dendrobium orchids, lisenthus, roses, stephonotis with lavender pearls, gardenias, and many more.
For a playful twist on a classic bouquet, accent a small bouquet with colorful pinwheels.

If your bouquets are handmade that means it’s the only one of it’s kind, like these champagne and white bouquets of ribbon roses.
