Suggested flowers: Roses, cymbidium orchids, tulips or lillies as feature flowers surrounded by smaller flowers such as singapore orchids, and lissianthus.

Compatible dress style: A traditional long gown with a full skirt and/or train.

Posy clustered (formal) or loose (informal)

This design is round in shape from the front view and softly rounded from the side view. The formal effect is generally created by using the one variety of flowers such as roses or tulips to give an even effect, although you can mix other flowers such as sweet pea freesia or lissianthus to give a spring, natural feel. To create a more informal style foilage is usually added throughout the flowers to give a looser, more unstructed style. With this design the posy usually has foliage, such as camellia leaves or ivy berry foilage around the outer.

Suggested flowers: Open roses, tulips, lissianthus, David Austin roses, freesia, chincherinchee. peonies, sweet peas, hyacinths, jonquils, bouvardia and berries (privet or peppercorn)

Compatible dress style: This style of bouquet looks best with a gown that has a long skirt or A-line. The posy can either be held with both hands or with one hand at your side. Either way it is best to hold it low to show off your gown.

Arm Sheath (hand spray)

This is one of the most versatile designs as it can be held in many different ways. The arm sheaf looks natural and elegant for any bride because it can be held in an upward position across the forearm with the top blooms falling over the elbow and the stems held in the bride's hand. Or alternatively, this bouquet can be held on an angle cascading down the gown or like a teardrop form the hips. The stems end together and the flowers need to be long and cascading, sometimes graduated. Foliage can be dramatic and vines can trail from the bouquet.

Suggested flowers: Anything long stemmed and structured like roses, lillies, orchids, tulips, and antheriums.

Dress style: A long straight, slimline or fitted dress works well with this design.
