Where do you buy bridal bouquets?

A bridal bouquet can be bought from a florist in shop or online. It is wise to pick a florist early to make sure they can deliver on your important day. Sometimes you are unlucky and your florist does not sell the flowers that you like. You are then forced to keep looking for a florist who can fulfil your wishes.

The price of a wedding bouquet

The cost of a bridal bouquet vary widely. The price is set according to the following factors:

  • The size of the bouquet. A small wedding bouquet is cheaper than a large one.
  • Flower species. A bouquet with only tulips or roses is cheaper than a field bouquet. In addition, some flower types are simply more expensive. For instance, lilies and orchids are more expensive than chrysanthemums and gerberas.
  • The seal of approval. Hallmarked shops charge more for their bouquets than shops without a hallmark. This does not mean that shops with hallmark are necessarily better. Always check the florist's reviews before ordering your bridal bouquet.
  • Craftsmanship. Does this florist create a simple bouquet, or does it also offer special craftsmanship? Think of designing drop or Biedermeier bouquets.

The price of a bridal bouquet is between 60 and 150 euros.

Bridal bouquet of flowers and dried flowers

Dried flowers we see more and more often. We see these as corsage as well as bridal bouquet. Dried flowers are a lot lighter and do not wilt. However, they are more expensive than normal flowers but unique they certainly are.

A tropical bridal bouquet

A tropical bridal bouquet is a beautiful arrangement of exotic flowers and luxurious greenery, inspired by the colourful and lush beauty of tropical paradises. The bouquet exudes a sense of adventure, joy and vibrancy. It is composed of flowers such as orchids, hibiscus, anthuriums, lilies and heliconias, enveloped by elegant palm leaves. This bouquet goes well with a beach wedding.

Matching with decoration

The flower types and colours from a wedding bouquet are often matched with the decoration and corsages at the wedding. This is not compulsory, of course, but can complete the picture. You can do this subtly by using the same flowers in vases on the table or in the corsage of the groom to deal with.

Traditions and customs

Wearing a wedding bouquet is an ancient tradition dating back to the time of the Greeks and Romans. Want to know more about the underlying meanings and traditions of bridal bouquets? Here are the fun facts about the bridal bouquet.

Herbs and cereals

The bridal bouquet did not always consist of pretty, bright flowers. The Romans composed a bouquet from herbs and spices with strong fragrances. This scent would chase away evil spirits, ensuring a prosperous future for the bride and groom. Grains were also added to the bouquet. This represented life (after death) and fertility. Do you love history? Then go for an old-fashioned herb bouquet too. Grains and herbs are an excellent match for a dried or field bouquet.

A Gift from the groom

Putting together a wedding bouquet is originally the job of the groom. The bouquet was given to the bride just before the ceremony took place. This is not only a nice gift, but also takes some care out of the bride's hands again. So a nice tradition to keep in it!

Flower types and their meanings

All flower types come with symbolic meanings. Do you like this? Then you can take this into account when composing the bouquet. For example, avoid the Narcissus. This flower stands for vanity and selfishness. The Columbine, which stands for unreliability, is also not conducive to a good marriage. Fortunately, there are also many flowers with beautiful meanings. For example, the orchid stands for beauty and the freesia for unconditional love.

The Symbolism of flower colours

The colours of flowers carry symbolic meaning. Thus, it is better to avoid purple in your wedding bouquet: this colour stands for raw and sad. Better colours for in your bridal bouquet are white or red. These colours represent love, freshness, passion and purity and are therefore perfect for a bridal bouquet. If you prefer a different colour in your bouquet, this is of course no problem! This colour theory is all about symbolism and tradition.

Throwing the Wedding Bouquet

You've surely seen it once: a horde of women massing on top of the wedding bouquet diving. Hundreds of years ago, this crazy tradition originated. In it, the bride throws the bouquet backwards into the ballroom. According to belief, the woman who catches the bouquet will be the next bride. Even if you are not superstitious, throwing the bouquet is a fun tradition to keep in it: it is guaranteed to produce fun pictures up!

Drying the Bouquet

There are also many brides who choose to keep the bouquet after the wedding day to dry as a memento. In trade term, this is called flowers preparation. This is best done by the flowers immediately after the wedding day to dry so they still look nice. To dry the bouquet, hang it on a string in a dry, dark place. Want to make sure this works? Then you can also have the bouquet dried by a professional.
