• decisions, decisions

Much like the flowers that beautify your wedding venue are decorations, your bouquet also serves as a slightly more important accessory. This means that you shouldn't put it in the forefront of your decisions, but treat it as a cherry on top. So, decide on more major things first, such as your wedding dress and shoes.

    • shape and form

Take this into consideration, because after deciding on what your dress is, the next step is trying to reach a middle ground of sorts, to achieve a stage where both your bouquet and dress complement each other. Also, do ensure the base of your bouquet is small, so as to further accentuate the narrowest part of your torso- your waist.

    • availability

Some flowers can only be accessible at certain times of the year, otherwise expensive or completely missing in action. So when planning for your wedding, plan accordingly.

    • increase the intimacy

Have a particular flower that means a lot to you or your partner? An accessory that has been through thick and thin with you? Be sure to include it in your bouquet! This can go from brooches or heirlooms; either way, it'll further highlight the occasion for both you and your family.

    • how to hold your bouquet

Hold your bouquet in one hand and below your hip, slightly away from your dress, so that you can see the silhouette of your dress. This will relax and open your shoulders, improving your posture and creating the best pose for your photographer.

    • keep it within your comfort zone

You'll be holding the bouquet the entire day, so arrange for your it to be pleasing, in terms of aesthetics and touch.

    • refresh

If your wedding goes on for half a day to one day, it's important for you to take a break to keep yourself fresh and on your toes. This applies for your bouquet too! Cut the stems off by an inch and put them in water to do so.
