A Simple Guide to the Different Types of Flower Bouquets

by Robert Canning on July 29, 2022

Flower bouquets are always quite so beautiful. But they're not always easy to make. For one, you need to create harmony in the bouquet so that it has a cohesive look. And that means picking the right flowers for the right type of flower bouquet.

Hand-Tied Bouquets

Hand-tied bouquets are made up of a series of individual blossoms which are hand-tied together. The purpose of these types of bouquets is to display the flowers in a very individualistic style. The arrangement can be of various sizes, shapes, and lengths. Though the arrangement can be elegant and beautiful, it is also the least expensive of the bouquets. For this reason, it is sometimes used as a gift bouquet for retailing to customers or for special occasions.

Hand-tied bouquets are sometimes placed in vases or other containers to help maintain their shape or for storage. They can be made up of almost any type of flower. From baby's breath or roses to sunflowers or daisies, anything goes.

Wedding bouquets are most often arranged in this style, as it allows for a good number of flowers to be used in an arrangement that still leaves the bouquet looking full and complete.

Simple Bouquets

The simple bouquet is either arranged in a ball form or in a vase. The difference between the two is that with the ball bouquet, the flowers are arranged in the shape of a ball, and the vase bouquet is made up of individual flower heads that have been plucked from their stems and put into a vase.

The simple bouquet is also easy to make. Usually, all that's needed is to fill a jar or vase with flowers (if you use a vase, wrap the stems in floral tape to help conserve water) and add some greenery to balance the look of your bouquet. It's the perfect bouquet for the bride or for any other person who wants the flowers in their bouquet for their beauty, without the fuss.

Straight Bouquet

Straight bouquets are made up of flower heads or individual blooms of the same type of flower. The number of flowers in the arrangement ranges from a few to several dozen. The arrangement is made on a long wire armature with metal tips at the end to hold the heads in place. The bouquets can be quite long and elegant or small and compact.

These types of bouquets are perfect for the bride. The bouquet can be made up of the bride's favourite flowers, and she can add to it or take away from it to make sure that it looks exactly how she wants it to.

Cascade Bouquets

Cascade bouquets are also arranged in a vase, but the flowers are arranged so that the flowers cascade over the edge of the vase in a very natural-looking way. This type of flower bouquet is usually made up of a single type of flower. For example, all roses, daisies, or any combination of the two.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to the types of flower bouquets, you can't go wrong. They can be simple, elegant, or elaborate. It all depends on how you want your bouquet to look. There's no one right way to make a bouquet. So, spend some time looking at the different bouquets, and then decide which one is going to work for you.
