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 weddings with smaller guest lists and budgets. 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.

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. Click through to discover all of the creative options these posies pose for your celebration.
