I'm floral designer, gardener and your flower bouquet coach. I'm so glad you're here. Let's enrich your bouquet skills together! Read my story
When I had a workshop, I provided the participants with a list of flowers that we were going to use to create a bouquet. One floral designer asked me if this is the typical list I use for making wedding bouquets.
I realized that sometimes it’s not obvious how many types of flowers other fellow florists use to create a loose and airy garden-style wedding bouquet.
In this article, I would love to talk about the types of flowers that I normally use for a garden style wedding bouquets.
As you may already know, there are different categories of flowers, typically ranging from 4 and up like Mass flower, Form flower, Filler flower, Line flower, and the way to discribe about the categories slightly different depending on florists.
I prefer to use the 6 categories below in my designs:
When designing the loose and airy garden style bride’s bouquet, I typically begin with six different categories of flowers: one main flower, two sub-main flowers, one line flowers, one filler flower, and one movement flower (or accent flower).
However, the filler flower might sometimes act like line flowers, such as Tweedia, or line flowers can function as filler flowers, like Astilbe. This is an idea of how I start designing a garden-inspired bouquet, and sometimes I don’t include line flowers at all, or I use two main flowers like garden roses and dahlias.
It depends on the shapes of flowers and the style that your clients want, but mixing the six different categories of flowers will surely achieve the loose and airy garden style. And incorporating a movement flower is also key, adding them in outer area of bouquets helps to give a fluffy and dreamy look! 😊
