One of our favorite floral designs to collaborate on with brides is the bouquet. There are so ways to go with what is the most personal element of your wedding flowers. A forecasted wedding trend for 2019 is the long stem bouquet. We’re hesitant to use the word “trend” here, because it suggests that what is “in” now will be “passé” sooner or later. It is our aim to create designs that speak to a bride’s style and personality, something she can look back at years from now and still be happy with. This is what makes the long stem bouquet so wonderful. While it will bring dramatic flair to your big day look (heads will turn, we promise), it complements styles ranging from classic to romantic to modern. Here are fifteen gorgeous long stem wedding bouquet ideas for every type of bride.
