There are many wedding bouquet types to take into consideration besides the type of flowers and the color of the flowers for your wedding bouquet.

By wedding bouquet types, we are talking about the shape of the wedding bouquet.  They can be as simple as a small round bouquet to as complex as a long cascading wedding bouquet.

10 – Nosegay and Posy Bouquets –  These two wedding bouquet types are very similar in that they are small and round.  Nosegay bouquets are usually decorated with some greeneries and encased in a tussy-mussy (or tussie-mussie) which is a metal cone-like structure.  Posy bouquets are more simpler with just one type of flower used and no greenery added.
