The nosegay bouquet features a neat assortment of flowers evenly cut and arranged into a circle. It is a popular choice for modern brides because it is compact enough to be held with one hand, without sacrificing the arrangement of flowers.

The pomander is an unusual choice for most brides, but is perfect for weddings with classical or French influences. It is a sphere of flowers hung with a ribbon on the bride’s wrist. Smaller versions can also be cute options for bridesmaids and flower girls.

A presentation bouquet is a long arrangement that showcases the flowers spread widely. It is normally used for long flowers and foliage, like orchids and calla lilies. It is also a versatile silhouette that is also perfect for tropical flowers. Brides typically carry this with their arm and not their hands.

4. Composite Flower Bouquet

Probably the most intricate of them all, a composite flower is essentially a giant flower that is made up of hundreds of petals put together. Only skilled florists can assemble a composite flower. It is a simple yet elegant choice for classic brides, but is only limited to certain types of flowers.

5. Cascade Bouquet

The hand-tied bouquet is literal in every form. It is composed of loosely-arranged flowers and foliage that are perfect for rustic or bohemian weddings. Don’t be fooled though, it still takes a professional to arrange a “natural” look for these flowers.
