Mum Wedding Bouquet Ideas
Chrysanthemum flowers or pompon spray mums are beautiful in wedding bouquets. Several types of mum blossoms are used in wedding floral pieces. The sturdy stems and multi-petaled blossoms hold up well in loosely arranged or formal bridal bouquets. The stems can be tied, wrapped or inserted into floral foam. Pompon blossoms are wired through the flower center for shaped floral pieces. The long-lasting flowers are budget friendly for any bride.
The bride may choose a wedding bouquet that is made entirely from mum flowers. The spider, starburst or Fuji mum is combined with daisy and ball poms for a nicely textured bouquet. Bouquets of flowers are aligned with stems that are cut to an equal length. The stems are then secured with floral tape and a ribbon or lace wrap. A more formally shaped bouquet of mixed mums are picked into a wet-foam bouquet holder.
Lacy starburst or daisy mums work well in a bouquet of roses, orchids or lilies. White daisy pompons that are paired with yellow roses make a stunning round, crescent or cascading bridal bouquet. A bridal bouquet filled with daisy mums is an elegant piece for a petite bride. Daisy mums also complement miniature or full-size carnation bouquets. Mums blend well in bridesmaids' bouquets on fans, baskets, kissing balls or an arm sheaf.
The football or incurve mum is a large blossom that comes in white, yellow, bronze and lavender colors. The over-sized flower is used as a single blossom, hand-tied trio, or arm sheaf with mixed flowers. Football mums have been creatively designed in a muff shape for a winter bridal bouquet. The flowers tend to be heavy so less is more with this mass blossom. The large blooms are beautiful in altar baskets which will tie in with the mum wedding bouquets.
A bride can plan on chrysanthemum pompon sprays to be available in many colors any time of the year. Autumn yellow, bronze and orange mums or spring lavender, yellow and white daisy poms make delightful nosegays for a bride and her attendants. Mums are easily sprayed or dyed in various shades for flower girl baskets, mother's corsages, and delicate bridal Bible or prayer book wedding flowers. Floral sprays and dyes are available for a florist to tint mums the color of the bridesmaids' dresses for matching wedding bouquets.
