Single-variety bouquets of roses are classically beautiful, elegant, and are perhaps the best representation of romance. But for some brides, rose bouquets can be just a bit too traditional. For a creative take on the time-honored rose bouquet, consider a stylish glamelia arrangement!
To form a glamelia bouquet, individual petals are plucked from the flowers and arranged to build one giant bloom. These "composite" bouquets can be formed with any number of flower types, but the thick, velvety-smooth rose petal is particularly well-suited to this sculpted style. Petals are wired into place around a single bloom, with a few leaves and stems added underneath to finish off the bouquet in order to give it a natural look.
Glamelia bouquets offer tons of opportunities for customization. Top the arrangement with stephanotis blossoms dotted with rhinestones (like the bouquet below) or pearls; or, create an ombré effect with layers of petals in different shades of the same hue. You can also place a jeweled pin in the middle of the bouquet!
Choose your favorite variety of rose and get creative! What do you think of this unique style of bouquet?
