For brides wanting the neatness of a classic hand-tied bouquet, but with the tapered structure of a trailing design, a teardrop bouquet could well be the answer. A particular favourite at royal weddings, in which modern princesses are putting their own spin on tradition, this semi-trailing style suits more formal celebrations.
“As teardrop bouquets involve wiring, they require sturdier, more sculptural flowers such as roses, calla lilies and tropical blooms, as the finished bouquet can’t be placed into water,” reveals Jay. The trailing bouquet may be a trend which has come full circle, but the designs will no doubt bring a classic feel to your big day.
