3. Composite Bouquet
Composite bouquets are quite stunning. They are created using a single rose as the base and then layers and layers of petals are glued on to make it look like one giant bloom!

5. For your Flower Girl
Flower girls tossing rose petals down the aisle has been a long lasting tradition as it was said to ward off evil spirits and grant fertility to the bride as she walked through them. Many brides may not know the tradition but it gives the flower girl something to do and have fun while doing it!
