Wedding Flowers For Katie Holmes And Tom Cruise

Copyright (c) 2006-2017

Although Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise haven't announced a date for their wedding yet, they are undoubtedly hard at work planning all the details of their nuptials, including the flowers. Flowers tend to follow fashion trends, and today there are no limits to what is considered appropriate for wedding and reception flowers. Holmes and Cruise will have styles ranging from the traditional to the new, trendy styles available to celebrities and all happy couples looking to make the big day reflect their personal style.

Of course, the wedding flowers that receive the most attention are those in the bride's bouquet. Traditional bouquets were formal and typically all white, but today's bride can opt for any number of styles. Here are four of the most popular styles:
  • Cascade Bouquets: These bouquets are characterized by the flowers that flow down from the main cluster. Often these flowers are chosen to be the main feature of the bride's adornment and are perfect when the wedding dress is a simple, classic style. Cascade bouquets are most often seen in formal, traditional weddings.
  • Hand-Tied Bouquets: To create a hand-tied bouquet, florists hold the stems and foliage in their hands and wrap them tightly around the center of the design. The bouquet is then finished off with a ribbon or by braiding the stems together. This is a more casual, open style of bouquet and makes the perfect bridal bouquet for open-air or garden weddings with an informal, friendly gathering feel.
  • Nosegays: The name "nosegay" comes from the 14th century when they were used to hide unpleasant odors due to the infrequent bathing of the times. Today they are sometimes also called tussie mussies. This bouquet is characterized by a rounded cluster of flowers that can vary in its formality. As a result, the nosegay is perfect for any wedding, from the formal to the casual.
  • Contemporary Bouquets: These bouquets reflect an unconventional style and contain large flowers that add a sense of attitude and flair, such as calla lilies and orchids. They aren't designed with any geometric shape in mind, but are asymmetrical instead. These flowers are often used in stylish, cosmopolitan weddings.

    The flowers Holmes and Cruise choose will very likely depend on the setting for their wedding. Celebrities seem particularly fond of grand outdoor locations with sweeping scenery. In that case and considering Holmes' youthful looks, an elegant hand-tied bouquet might be just the thing. However, if Cruise chooses an elaborate, attention-grabbing wedding in the manner of his pronouncement of his love for Holmes (remember the jumping on Oprah's couch incident?), the flowers might then reflect a more sophisticated and eye-catching style where a cascade bouquet would be perfect.

    Whatever the case, this is one celebrity wedding that is sure to catch the eye and imagination of all brides-to-be. And, the best thing about it is that flowers are universal-you don't have to be a celebrity to have beautiful, stylish, and trendy wedding flowers.

    Easter, the Christian festival commemorating the resurrection of Christ, was the earliest feast day decided upon by the ancient Christian Church.

    Which holiday is the biggest for flower sales? I'll bet you're thinking Valentine's Day or Mother's Day.

    Many of my girlfriends have "girl nights" around getting tattoos, as if it were as casual as getting a haircut or a manicure. The casual attitude toward tattoos bothers me for two reasons; there is the age old argument that tattoos are permanent and not a decision to make lightly. The other argument I have against tattoos is that getting a tattoo on a whim significantly cheapens the tattoos that others have for cultural reasons or to commemorate a major life event.
