The Wedding Bouquet
When we think of weddings there are a few images that come automatically
to our minds. We may think of churches decorated with beautiful flowers
or of groomsmen looking somehow uncomfortable and debonair at the same
time in their rented tuxedos. We may think of bridesmaids adorned in
dresses that they would never be caught dead in elsewhere or of adorable
small children acting as ring bearers and flower girls, thrilled to
be the focus of attention for those few moments that they spend walking
down the aisle. One image that invariably comes to mind is that of the
bride in her white dress and veil carrying a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
For some reason, when we think of a wedding, we always think of the
The wedding bouquet is a tradition that goes back almost as far as weddings
themselves. While it’s obvious that the flowers are a symbol of fertility,
the origins of the wedding bouquet and the tradition of throwing the
bouquet (thus passing on that fertility) to another available young
lady are less clear. Suffice to say that the wedding bouquet is now
a time-honored tradition that is observed in most weddings today.
Once just a simple and small collection of flowers, the wedding bouquet
has evolved over time to the point where literally hundreds of dollars
are now spent on beautifully designed and arranged ornate wedding bouquets.
Most modern brides, in fact, will often have two bouquets. One elaborate
wedding bouquet is designed to be carried down the aisle during the
ceremony and used in photographs while the other is typically smaller
and designed to be thrown into the throng of the bride’s available girlfriends
who will then proceed to scramble and claw at one another in an attempt
to be the lucky girl who “catches” the bouquet and thus becomes the
next woman destined to be married.
Modern florists take great pride in the wedding bouquets they design
and offer. Rarely is the simple group of daises seen at today’s weddings.
Instead, wedding bouquets now consist of a variety of floral designs,
including combinations of calla lilies, roses, and sweet pea or traditional
white lilies and roses. Even sunflowers have made their way into modern
wedding bouquet arrangements.
The advent of the Internet has broadened the spectrum of available options
in many industries, and flowers are no exception. The fact that floral
arrangements can be designed and ordered online has spurred great competition
among florists, causing each to try and outdo the others by offering
greater and greater diversity in all of their arrangements, including
wedding bouquets. Ultimately this trend is very good for the bride-to-be
because it allows for an incredible array of options when it comes time
to choose all of the flowers for a wedding, including the all important
wedding bouquet. With florists offering so many designs in wedding bouquets
and so many florists as close as the living room PC, any prospective
bride is sure to find the perfect wedding bouquet to complete her appearance
on her Special Day.
