Jane Packer, the iconic British floral design company, shows four ways to create a memorable wedding bouquet. Ideas range from a traditional posy to dramatic statement blooms
A traditional posy shape is the classic choice for wedding bouquets. Here it has all the romance but with a few subtle differences, as lush pink roses are combined with unusual details such as vintage buttons. The overall effect is compact and enhances the 1950s styling of the white satin wedding dress.
A single-flower bouquet is effective if your wedding dress features ornate lace or fine detailing as it ensures the blooms don’t draw attention away from the dress or make the whole effect too busy. Here, sprays of fragrant and delicate lily of the valley (a traditional flower for spring weddings) are combined with green foliage to create a timeless bouquet with impact.
Creating a touch of drama for an evening or winter wedding, calla lilies in purple-black are arranged in an ultra-simple hand-tied bouquet where the focus is on the perfection of each individual bloom.
Trailing bouquets are wonderful when they complement the line of the wedding gown. Here, a rich combination of purples and greens, using unusual orchids and passion flowers, adds ethereal glamour to a form-fitting dress.
