Bouquet Aesthetic Styles

Bouquet aesthetic styles are made up of certain colors, textures, and pairings that fall under a designated label or term. For example, you could create a boho bouquet, which is often made of lots of different colors, earthy textures, and natural touches in a wild, flowing arrangement. Or you could create a simplistic, traditional bouquet with white roses, baby’s breath, and classic greenery formed in a sphere shape. If you’re getting married around Christmas, you could create a holiday-style bouquet The great news is that Sola Wood Flowers can provide you with flowers and fillers that will match any bouquet aesthetic style. If you’re looking for a certain style aesthetic for your wedding bouquet, select the “shop by theme” option for the Sola Wood Flowers wedding kits.
How to Make a Wedding Bouquet
Here are a few simple steps that will teach you how to make a wedding bouquet with Sola Wood Flowers. Remember to include each of these steps as you’re assembling your wedding bouquet. Also, make sure to practice before your big day by using your Sola Wood Flowers to form bouquets.
You’ll start off your bouquet by adding your few main flowers. These flowers are usually some of the biggest in your bouquet and might include one or two of the main colors from your color scheme. The main flowers will be the focal point of your bouquet.
Once you have your main flowers gathered, start adding in some accent flowers. You’ll likely have a few different types of accent flowers that come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. These accent flowers should complement the main flowers. You’ll start to see your bouquet vision coming together at this stage, but your bouquet won’t look quite full enough yet.
Next, add in some fillers to help add some volume and richness to your bouquet. Fillers can be anything from dried pampas grass to eucalyptus to wheatgrass to pixie cotton. Fillers function similarly to greenery but often add a pop of color and texture to your bouquet as well. Check out the popular faux and preserved bouquet fillers that Sola Wood Flowers has to offer.
Finally, add your greenery. Popular types of greenery are eucalyptus, olive branches, myrtle, and fern. You should have a bit of greenery mixed throughout your bouquet, but the majority of your greenery will frame the outside of the bouquet regardless of your bouquet type. You can choose from the faux and preserved greenery at Sola Wood Flowers, or you could even add a bit of live greenery to your bouquet on your wedding day.
Now you’re ready to add some accessories to your bouquet! Make sure to tie it together with a string or rubber band. Then, add some lace, silk ribbon, or burlap around the stems. Some brides even glue pearls or gemstones to the ribbon on their bouquets. Make sure to personalize your bouquet as you put on the accessories and finishing touches.
