Size Matters

While many royal brides certainly could display enormous cascading blooms of any variety, often princesses and other royal brides opt for small, handheld bouquets that exude dignity, grace, and a simplicity that only the most posh, well-bred brides possess. For example, the white posey carried by Princess Kate was symbolically important- with Lily of the Valley and Sweet William representing England and her groom- yet understated and therefore beautifully classic. While this isn’t the only option, for royal brides or for you, keep in mind that small, simple and elegant can still speak volumes. Other royal weddings showcase larger, more obvious flowers, like those carried by the Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, but these gorgeous cascading blooms are still tasteful while lavish.

Pure White

There are so many white flowers that you can choose to make your bouquet uniquely your own! White roses, lily of the valley, freesia, and orchids are choices that many royal brides have included in their own arrangement in years past and in our modern times. We can show you how to arrange these beautiful white flowers into a bouquet that will make you feel like a princess as you walk down the aisle. White flowers often symbolize purity and innocence, a popular choice for royal nuptials, and for those who want to feel royal on their special day.

Tradition Is On-Trend

While a royal wedding seems as though it would be completely fancy and over the top, that is generally not the case. Subtlety is prized and elegance reigns supreme. Simple tradition is often the choice that sets apart a royal wedding. Brides today can choose traditional as the overall theme of their wedding. You can also add a royal element by designing a wedding bouquet that includes traditional flowers arranged in a style similar to many brides who were once future queens or princesses. Choosing understated elegance and white flowers will make any woman believe she can have a royal wedding too. We are ready to make the royal bouquet of your dreams!
