Full, round, posy that informally trails below, down the dress.


Similar to cascading/trailing bouquet but with a more formal and and refined finishing point at the bottom of the bouquet.


Formal, round, short stemmed bouquet, simple, tidy and compact, usually using fewer flower varieties. Informal, round short stemmed bouquet, a little more unstructured and casual, tending to incorporate more texture and variety.

Arm sheath

Usually a longer and streamlined bouquet that can be cradled in the arm or held on an angle downwards, across the dress.

Flower girls could also have the option of baskets filled with an arrangement of flowers or simply rose petals.
