Royal Wedding Inspired Photo Shoot - Part 2 (Bouquet Flowers)
Since I think Kate will be wearing a very classic, elegant and full sleeved gown (for the ceremony at Westminster anyways) without a long train (she is travelling in a car to get to Westminster), I wanted her bouquet to be simple, yet beautiful enough to stand out on it's own. A biedermeier bouquet is perfect for this! This style of bouquet is european-inspired and has very dramatic circular rings of flowers that are each tightly packed and carefully arranged. The geometry and contrast of a biedermeier is unsurpassed by any kind of bouquet and would suit Kate's style perfectly. As for colour, it must be white. Even with her blue engagement ring, Kate reminds me of a modern day Jackie O and I don't think a coloured bouquet is her style.
The ribbon work on the handle had to complement the bouquet as well as be fashionable. I didn't want to go over the top, so I used 2 different kinds of ribbon. The base ribbon to make it look like a pleated and layered skirt, and the top ribbon to be a more dainty, and feathery as an accent. A great complement to a simple and stunning bouquet!
