I'm still thinking about what sort of bouquet I want. So far I've stuck with the rounded natural posy look but there is something inside me that says, "no, go for a teardrop!" What are you ladies having?

Teardrops and trails seem more elegant but cost about $100-$150 more. Are they worth the cost?

I haven't started organising my flowers yet, but I have my heart set on a simple round posie. They seem so cute and old fashioned, but at the same time very modern, well they do to me anyway.

I prefer teardrop for myself. However I also really like the posy style.
My florist said that it depends on body shape of the bride. I tend to agree. For me being on the larger size & tallish he suggested a teardrop would create a longer line, whereas a posy might shorten me IYKWIM

Thanks for this tip. I'm on the larger and shorter side... teardrop for me?

If you are short, I think a posy would be best.

hmm good question.. if you're shorter then maybe a posy would look better dry.gif or what about an in between - my bm's were in between posy & teardrop - perhaps you could go with that shape?


Here's a pic ..

Hiya,

I'm planning on having a very small trail or teardrop one. The kind of flowers I want (orchids) don't really go into posies, and I have never wanted a little round one anyway. I don't know why, because I love other people's ones.

I think it depends how formal your wedding/dress is. A trail one seems more fitting for a floaty dress and a garden ceremony.

But also, your florist will help you get one that matches your shape, as some of the girls here have suggested. Like dresses, I guess you never know until you try one out.

I think it depands on the flowers that you want also! Have a chat with a florist or two, and make sure that you look at heaps of pics!

I am short and have a classic slimline gown to give me height. My friend who is a florist advised me to go for a small teardrop bouquet again to create virticle lines and elongate the body.

I have always liked the look of a tear drop bouquet, so I will most probably have one biggrin.gif

A florist told me that a teardrop is ok as long as your dress at the front is basic, otherwise you will be hiding potential beautiful dress detail in lots of photos. So for example with me, my dress is going to be having a lot of beading down the front and side the same colour as my roses, so I don't want to take attention away from that so I'm going to have only a medium sized posy.

I agree with Donna that it really is your dress style and body shape that influences the shape of your bouquet.

For example, my florist advised me that the bouquet should not be wider than the bride! More seriously, he pointed out that because the detailing on my gown is on the bodice, then the bouquet needs to trail downwards and not stick up and hide the beading. Also, as I am tall and my dress is drapy and long, the bouquet needed to reflect this. So given that you aren't too tall, it sounds like a posy or "tear-posy" would be perfect.

Good luck with the decision making!
