Whatever your wedding theme or budget, flowers play a vital role in making your wedding attire and wider venue feel extra special. Your choice of wedding flowers will have an oversized impact on your day, since they’re used for bouquets, buttonholes, ceremonies and receptions. They set the tone and theme of a wedding, and with hidden symbolism behind every bloom, your selection could mean more than you think.
It’s not just the type of flower or design of arrangement that must be considered carefully. Those finishing touches can make all the difference, especially when creating your dream wedding bouquet. Here we reveal the wrap benefits and ideas that will help make your bridal bouquet even more beautiful.
The benefits of bouquet wraps
The bouquet wrap is more than just pretty to look at. The right wrap will make your bouquet much easier to hold, ensuring comfort throughout your wedding day. Wraps can be adapted to various bouquet styles and sizes, fitting easily around most stems for a neat and tidy finish. Incorporating a wrap into your bridal bouquet is another way to make your accessories marry with your wider wedding style and theme, and as The Knot details, the possibilities are endless:
“Most bouquets are held together by some average looking green floral tape–so yes, you’ll need to find some way to cover this up. But you’re not limited to silk ribbon and pearl-topped floral pins. We love a textured ribbon or twine for a more casual look. Or consider adding lace from your dress or a cascade of colorful ribbons to the posey. And don’t forget about accessories: personalize your bouquet with a sparkly heirloom brooch or keep it sentimental by adding a locket or another passed-down treasure to the stems.”
The best bouquet wrap ideas
Your bouquet wrap should be directly influenced by your bridal attire and wedding theme, but there are some wrap ideas that just can’t be ignored! The oversized bow is going to be huge next year with many wedding dresses adding an oversized element to stay on trend. Keep your bouquet wrap super stylish by opting for an oversized bow here too. Oversized bow bouquet wraps look great in satin, offering that classic wedding twist to a very up-to-the-minute trend.
The use of contrasting pins is another route taken by an increasing number of brides. Colourful wraps with lighter coloured pins add striking pops of colour for those marrying in white. Braided ribbons and pearls also provide the stunning and unique appearance that every bride covets.
We love a bit of monogramming. No longer reserved for the royals – the recent royal wedding between Princess Eugenie and Jack saw some monogramming controversy – your own personal monogram can be incorporated into your bouquet wrap for a truly bespoke finish. In fact, utilising any type of embroidery, lace and even jewellery is an excellent idea. Lockets in particular look great and provide a discreet way to pay tribute to those who can’t be there to celebrate with you thanks to the addition of a photo.
