A great new look in wedding bouquets is the trendy floral cuff. This is often a vertical bouquet, and is an impressive way to accessorize popular dress styles such as the mermaid dress, sheath, or the trumpet gown. The elegant lines of these dress styles are accented by the long, graceful lines of this form of floral design.

Sometimes brides who choose traditional bouquets find that the round, cascade, or crescent shaped bouquet is heavy or awkward for carrying as they enter the reception area to greet their guests or have their first dance. A fun new idea for brides is to have a second bouquet; a lighter weight, more comfortable bouquet that can be worn over the wrist as a floral cuff. The bride remains accessorized by her flowers that are more easily worn.

Just as many brides have a more formal dress for the wedding and a more ‘fun’ dress for the reception – a trendy bride can choose to make the same statement of style with her bouquets.
