First things first, choosing a bouquet that completes your style is essential, after all, not all bouquets go with all types of dress. Just as there is the perfect wedding dress for each body type, there is also the ideal bouquet for each style of dress, according to the chosen cut.
And for you to be the belle of the ball, we have selected the 4 most popular wedding dress styles and the best tips to match them with the perfect bouquet.
One of the most well-known and quintessential wedding dress styles is the A-line cut, where the upper part of the dress is fitted, and the skirt gradually widens, creating a silhouette similar to the letter “A” or a triangle, which may be less or more voluminous, depending on the bride’s taste. Thanks to its unpretentious and classic style, this model is suitable for all types of ceremony.
For this dress, the experts suggest various types of bouquets. The first proposal suggests roses, peonies and wild flowers, such as daisies. Already a classic and always accurate option are the bouquets of red peonies with subtle hints of pink.

Now, if you are a modern bride who loves all things original, why not go for a colorful bouquet of roses, purple flowers, green chrysanthemums and craspedias, also known as billy buttons.
Another interesting proposal would be bouquets in which roses, flower par excellence for many brides, are the main feature. Perhaps complemented by peonies, brunias and groundsels, in a very current color combination.
An empire cut is where the dress is tight around the bust and then from there the skirt begins and falls loosely downwards, creating a straight silhouette. It tends to also have a belt or some other type of detail just below the bust, for definition. Usually they are made with vaporous, flowy fabrics that add a touch of whimsical romance to the look. They are a great choice for casual ceremonies, as well as for beach weddings.
For this type of dress, the bouquet options are fantastic. Choose something like a large bouquet with orange rose buds with soft touches of pink accompanied by ivory fruits.
On the other hand, a nice idea is the jewel bouquet, which is a medium-sized, rounded bouquet, with natural flowers, details in aged gold and no green leaves or foliage. It can be composed of roses, scabious, freesia, small white flowers such as gypsophila, or orange blossoms.
And for brides who are going or something more cheerful and jolly, how about a yellow bouquet with accents in green, perfect for weddings during the day and weddings held outdoors.
Another surprising and unusual choice is the trumpet-shaped bouquet in mauve and white tones. Beautiful and original, and you dare with a bouquet like that?
Princess Cut Dress
Who does’t know this style of dress? The princess cut is the wedding dress most people imagine when thinking of weddings. It’s made up of a tight bodice with a defined waist and a skirt with a lot of volume. It is more suitable for more pompous and traditional ceremonies.
To compliment this type of dress, we suggest going for a more demure bouquet in shades of beige, aged pink and a light green touch, so as to not overpower the dress itself.
Now if you prefer an unpretentious bouquet but at the same time want something splendid and sophisticated, change the more traditional flowers for cala lillies – uniquely beautiful flowers that will give that special and exclusive touch to your wedding dress.
On the other hand, a more poetic alternative would be a bouquet in soft tones and pastels shades, with a lot of carefully intercalated roses, white hydrangeas, and nude carnations. We also can’t forget the classic and traditional bouquet in white roses – always elegant and timeless.
The latest proposal to go with your princess dress is different and daring; in this bouquet the flowers form an unusual composition with predominantly soft tones in coral and dry branches that jut out in different directions.
This is a sexy dress that is more figure-hugging and enhances the feminine silhouette to perfection. The mermaid cut is that model that adjusts approximately to the height of the knee, from there it opens forming the skirt. As it’s versatile, you can wear it for a formal wedding at night, and for a slightly more informal ceremony during the day.
Small bouquets made up of pink, white, and lilac flowers make more cute and typically feminine bridal accessories. And if you are not afraid to take a risk, a colorful bouquet is a wise choice. How about mauve, red and pink poppies, combined with small flowers that will fill in the gaps and create a perfect compact effect!
A special bouquet can be made up from a beautiful composition of English roses and other varieties of rose in mauve and fuchsia, as well as freesias, lavenders and bupleurum.
