22 Petite Wedding Bouquets That Make a Big Statement
While we'll always be big fans of wild, cascading bouquets, we've noticed that more and more brides are opting for smaller-scale arrangements. This is particularly true for brides affected by the coronavirus pandemic, who have had to adjust their wedding plans for a smaller guest list and new budget. These mini clutches can range from a single stem to a collection of tiny blooms. But don't be fooled by their smaller stature—although minute, these posies still make a big impact down the aisle. In fact, we think their small size is what makes them so eye-catching.
Need proof? Take a look at the following arrangements. Whether you're going for a modern and minimalist feel or a classic and understated look—we're fond of one bride who carried only three peonies—you're bound to find an option that suits you and your big day. Jennifer Laraia Designs created this tiny, contemporary bunch using seeded eucalyptus, garden roses, greenery, and a king protea as the focal point. The arrangement could have easily been made more traditional by adding a large peony or garden rose to the center, but we like how this unexpected mix pops against the bride's gown.
Ahead, you'll find a whole bunch of petite bouquets that brides carried down the aisle. From a posy made entirely of lily of the valley that even Kate Middleton would envy to a modern bundle of the smallest buds, there's something here for every bride. Even better? These mini bouquets look stunning, but won't overwhelm your bridal look. In fact, once you're through, you might want to ask your florist create your own personal petite bouquet for your wedding day.
