You have always dreamed of the perfect wedding for yourself since you were young. You have to think about how everything will pan out: your dress, your shoes, the venue, the food, the decorations, how you'll do your hair and makeup and even what location it will be held at. These are all important things to consider when planning out a wedding.

But the most important element of your wedding day is that many brides might not pay that much attention to their wedding bouquet. The wedding bouquet is one of the most important aspects of your overall look, and it is a beautiful accessory that adds class and style to your whole outfit.

The most popular styles for wedding bouquets are ones that are used most often in modern-day weddings, such as: nosegays, pompander, posy, hand-tied, composite, cascade, pageant and round. Here are some more styles of wedding bouquets that are just as nice as more unusual:

Arm Sheaf Bouquet

The arm sheaf bouquet was popular in the early 1900s under the name of Bernhardt bouquets; this is because Sarah Bernhardt, the popular actress of the time, was given them the presentation bouquets. They are long-stemmed flowers and foliages that the bride carries cradled in her arm, also known as a bouquet presentation. This style of bouquet is best suited for modern-style weddings. Most popular floral choices for these arm bouquets are calla lilies, gladiolus, orchids, long-stemmed roses, delphiniums and larkspur.

The Muff Bouquet

The muff bouquet was very popular in Europe. It was created out of necessity in the early centuries. This bouquet would be suited more for winter weddings. Here's why: In mid-winter, the bride's hands would sit in the muff, a lovely corsage-shaped bouquet attached to the front. Long evening gloves should be worn if opting for this style of bouquet.

The Fan Bouquet

This bouquet originated in Switzerland in the late 1800s. (Fun fact: often orange and lemon peels were added for extra fragrance.) It gets its name for a German style of interior design. It is similar to the nosegay. In this bouquet, the blooms of your choice are arranged in a tight circular shape with each "circle" made of a different flower. It is showing signs of gaining popularity again due to its geometric shape, beauty and contrast.

Prayer Book Bouquet

In this style of wedding bouquet, a small prayer book or Bible is used the platform upon which a small bouquet is placed. The design may be a small cluster of flowers the size of a corsage which is placed on top of the prayer book and can be attached with ribbons or a small armature to prevent damage to the book.

The wedding bouquet is one that is not used most often at weddings. The crescent bouquet appears in the shape of a quarter moon. Distinguished flowers are used with definite shapes, most popular are orchids, wired together to form a slender handle that you can hold in one hand. This style is perfect for sophisticated and contemporary weddings. Carry it down the waist to really show off its beauty.

So there you have it. The most unique and beautiful wedding bouquets. Use this blog post to get inspired of what to use for your wedding bouquet, or suggest to a friend to use one of these innovative designs for her wedding. Written by Alexa Escalona
