Pick the right bouquet for your wedding dress

Pick the right bouquet for your wedding dress

Ms Jaclyn Lim, co-founder and florist of The Bloom Room, shares tips on matching your bouquet and wedding outfit.

Outfit Types

Frilly dresses: A traditional round bouquet, such as this white one (right, photo 1), will do. The David Austin "Patience" buttermilk roses in the bouquet have ruffled petals when in full bloom, which will match your skirt.

Heavily embellished dresses: Go easy on the flowers to avoid an over-the-top look - a basic bouquet with a few types of flowers, like the blue one (photo 2), will do.

Simple, fitted dresses: Opt for a sheaf-style bouquet that features slender lines, and does not cover your figure's fitted form. Have a variety of flowers, like those in the reddish-pink bouquet (photo 3), to add sophistication to the overall look.

Rompers: Stick to a more casual bouquet, such as the hand-tied versions which are very popular now. The bride will look like she just picked the flowers from a field before walking down the aisle.

Bouquet Size

This is related to factors like the bride's silhouette, gown design and venue choice. Determining this should be the wedding florist's job. As a rule of thumb, though, the bouquet should not be wider than the bride's waist or hips, nor so small that it looks like an afterthought.
