The hand-tied bouquet is similar to the round. However, instead of being compact, the flowers are loosely tied together by a single ribbon, which allows the stems to show completely.

A mix between the round and hand-tied, this bouquet is a perfect choice for bridesmaids. The posy works well with all varieties of flowers and can easily be held with one hand.

Sometimes called a “waterfall” style, this arrangement is a cluster of flowers that narrows from top to bottom. Though traditionally a glamorous and extravagant choice, recent cascade trends have adopted a rustic feel with the addition of vines and wildflowers.
Better known as an “arm sheath” bouquet, this stunning style is most recognized as the bouquet of beauty pageants. The long stems typically show and are held by cradling the bouquet in one’s arm.

Unique in its name, the nosegay bouquet is a compact bouquet that often includes more greenery than flowers. Brides who opt for this style may have their bridesmaids carry a smaller version. This is an excellent choice for the “throw bouquet.”
When visualizing this bouquet style, think mistletoe. There is a reason this bouquet is known as the “kissing ball.” A perfect accessory for a flower girl, this arrangement is an assortment of flowers held by a single ribbon.

The ballerina bouquet style adds a “tutu” twist to the round bouquet by adding tulle under the flowers. This feminine style became popular during WWII due to the scarcity of fresh florals.
