Wedding Bouquet Sizes / Lake Tahoe Sacramento Placerville wedding flowers florist

Rather than calling bouquets by whom I think will be holding them, I much prefer to name them by their size.  After all, would a client choose something named after an attendant?  In the interest of keeping things simple, my hand-tied bouquets (with the stems showing) are based on the approximate number of stems in the bouquet.  Never an exact number, though, because as anyone who designs knows, sometimes you need to add that extra rose or take out a stem to make the design balanced.

And please note this:  size is relative to the type of flower that you are using.  As you will see, 10 very small lavender stems makes a very very petite bouquet, compared to 10 stems of spider mums.

The sweet white sweet pea and lavender bouquet above is an example of a petite bouquet.  My petite bouquets have 10 to 12 stems.  Designer's Choice bouquets are your choice of colors, my choice of seasonal flowers and does not include premium flowers such as (but not limited to) peony, mini posy calla, garden roses, or orchids or other pricey flowers.  This example is tied with sparkling wire, and is embellished with a vintage piece of jewelry (not included in price). The photo below, of simple lavender, and the is also a petite bouquet.

 The Mono-Floral (one flower type) bouquets in Petite size is 10 stems as well (excepting, when available, football mums, arctic white callas, green goddess callas, and dahlias which are 5 stems).  An example is shown in green spider mums, and arctic white callas, below.

Designer's Choice medium size bouquets have 14 to 16 stems.  The bouquet below, of pink peonies and dahlias, surprised a lucky bride!  By allowing me freedom to buy the nicest flowers...sometimes you might be very surprised and get premium flowers if they happen to be on special at the time of your wedding!  See the difference in size compared to the "medium size"  white sweet pea and lavender bouquet.  Because the sweet peas and lavender are smaller stems and smaller heads, the bouquet tends to look smaller.
