Composite Bouquet, Glamelia Bouquet…I Love Love Love ‘em!

Let’s go back about 5 years ago, when Charlie and I truly started talking about getting married. I started putting together a binder of things that I loved from wedding magazines. I would buy every magazine there was at Borders and clip all the pretty images after I read them all. It was then when I saw my dream bouquet. I didn’t know what the name of it was at the time, but I knew it was what I wanted. Enter the Composite Bouquet…

When I did my research (I am a self proclaimed “Google Research Expert”) I was able to figure out what these┬ábeauties were called – these bouquets are most commonly called Glamelia Bouquets or Composite Bouquets. They were popular in the 1940s and 1950s and were commonly made with roses or gladiolas.

It’s safe to say since that day 5 years ago when I started puting my inspiration board together for our big day, most of those images are things that I don’t want anymore. My taste has changed, there are new things in the wedding scene, and now that Charlie has a say in my ideas I’ve had to learn to compromise quite a bit :P But this beautiful bouquet hasn’t left my mind.
