With the Wedding Industry constantly changing, it is no surprise that we are beginning to see yet another new trend in Florals! Personally this excited me to the core, being that my first language is flowers, but also because it breathes fresh air into a tradition that has been around since the Victorian Era.
We have Pantone to thank every year for giving us Wedding professionals a new color scheme to work with, but it is up to each individual artist to come up with new ways to enhance their work and stay relevant. Though it seems Oval Bouquets have been around since the 1700s, rounder, more symmetrical bouquets have taken the spotlight for the last 300+ years. But now its time to say “Move over, Blasé Bouquets!”
Introducing Oval Bouquets. ❤
What I love most about these Opulent beauties is that they have more surface area- depending on how large you want one. Meaning, as a floral designer I have more room to work with, and can include more of the flowers my bride wants!
Each bouquet is a serious work of art, and while it may seem that there is no rhyme or reason to its look, the design and structure is definitely one that is trickier to achieve.
What I will say to brides that are considering this look, is to make sure you have some fun with it! When you are talking with your florist, be sure let them know which colors and textures you would like to be featured, as there are so many different ways to go with this style of bouquet. Also! Depending on size, they may be a little heavier than what you would be expecting, but don’t let that deter you! Throw some extra greenery in there to make it more romantic and etherial, or put some pinecones in it to feature a winter theme- in my opinion you can’t go wrong adding this gorgeous bouquet design to your big day!
