A bridal bouquet is a fashion accessory that “should accent the dress,” not obscure it,” says floral designer Lorraine Cooper, AIFD, in the September issue of Flowers& magazine. The article, aptly titled “It’s All About the Dress,” includes 12 bouquets she created to complement six popular wedding gown silhouettes — all magnificently photographed by Ron Derhacopian. Cooper goes into considerable detail about the thinking behind her beautiful designs, many of which feature David Austin Wedding Roses.

We think this informative, inspirational piece is a “must-read” for both floral designers and brides-to-be. Flowers& has graciously allowed us to share it with you.
