Auckland wedding flowers - trailing bouquets and teardrop bouquets.





A trailing bouquet is a more formal long wedding design. Very flattering as the elongated design draws your eye upwards - giving a longer, leaner sillouhette.
What is the difference between a trailing bouquet, a teardrop, a cascade and a waterfall bouquet?


I would be honoured to work with you and bring your dreams to life. Please do reach out Wedding Designer - Jo.
