The bridal bouquet a is tradition in almost every culture on Earth.

With detailed directions for choosing and grooming the flowers and leaves, wiring and taping, using ribbons and making handles, Bouquets enables every bride-to-be, mother, sister, and friend to re-create these designs -- or inspire the florist to fashion the perfect handful of flowers for that special day.

A must have for every bride Apr 18, 2008
All this book has is bridal bouquets. Every imaginable idea, one to a page. I highly recommend this as a starter for choosing your wedding flower style. It's remarkable. Worth every penny and more. Since you start with your bouquet to match your style and dress, this book is really a must. The choices photographed here are all over the may style wise, something for everyone.
bouquets Jan 19, 2008
the book is ok, but the condition of this book was awful book is warped and there is a full page written message to someone on the inside.I purchased it to show to brides for ideas,but I would be embarrased to show this one
Nice photos but not enough bouquets Jan 10, 2008
I love the photo quality of this book. It has some non traditional but still classy bouquets inside. I wish it had more bouquets for each month! If you are a floral designer, it is a nice book to show the stephanotis bouquet. I have a lot of brides asking about that specific bouquet.
Nice pictures for your coffee table Mar 4, 2007
This book was not as good as I expected. Some of the bouquets were creative, but worth the price of the book. I got more out of Better Home and Garden's Creative Collection "Simply Creative Wedding Flowers". This magazine was a thousand times better than this book in terms of getting creative and unique ideas for wedding flowers.
Very nice wedding flower book......... Feb 25, 2007
Finally, I have found a wedding flower book that gives you at least some ideas on how to make it yourself. Perhaps, the instructions could show more step by step pictures, but I think I can at least have an idea on how to make some boquets myself. So, I recommend this book. You might also want to find another beginner type arranging flowers book to go with this.
