Royal Weddings: The Bouquet Breakdown

Updated: Nov 20, 2020

Everything you need to know to recreate a royal bouquet.

It's no lie that every girl wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day and for Meghan, Kate and Eugenie their dreams became a reality. Everybody loves the extravagance and elegance that comes with a royal wedding and even though you may not have found yourself a real prince, we'll show you how to add a regal feel to your wedding florals.

Royal Weddings are all about class, elegance and showcasing natural beauty keeping flowers subtle yet stunning. Princesses Kate, Meghan and Eugenie all opted for a smaller bouquet in comparison to the traditional cascading florals - proving that bigger isn't always better!

So let's start with the first of our three princesses, Kate. Although her bouquet was on the smaller side it was packed with sentimental meaning and traditional family customs. Filled with lily of the valley, hyacinths and ivy, her choice in flowers symbolised fidelity, friendship and happiness also containing myrtle, a tradition amongst the royals. Her light and elegant posie style bouquet is easily re-createable for your special day with options to swap in your family favourite blooms adding that personal touch.

Meghan definitely went for a more minimal look with an all white ensemble including Prince Harry's pick, forget-me-nots, in tribute to his mother Diana. She also featured lily of the valley, sweet peas, jasmine, astilbe astrantia and a sprig of myrtle- symbolising love and hope, making it the perfect addition to any bouquet, royal or not. Hand-tied arrangements are becoming increasingly more popular choice amongst modern brides and are the perfect complement for the DIY wedding.

Princess Eugenie went for a slightly different aesthetic introducing a splash of colour, very fitting for her autumnal wedding. Arranged in a teardrop shape she chose to feature baby blue thistles, white roses, stephanotis with an ivy trail for a subtle yet eye catching bouquet. Matching your floral colour scheme with the rest of your wedding party creates perfect cohesion, its the small touches that bring everything together. Eugenie's subtle splashes of blue in her bouquet beautifully complimented her bridesmaids belts and maid of honour's dress without being too obvious.

So whatever your style, we’ll help you to make your wedding a royal one!
