Generally a nosegay is a compact round-shaped bouquet - small for the flower girls, medium for the bridesmaid and and a large size for the bride herself. Popular blooms are roses, carnations, lilies, gerbera daisies and iris. Usually one type of flower is used and sometimes several or a combinations, eg. roses and stephanotis, lilies with baby breaths and hydrangea. Fillers and foliage borders make the nosegay more attractive.
There a few ways to decor a bridal nosegay - either the flowers stems left as it is or wrapped with ribbons all round , decorated with pearl pins and tied with a bow (french bows)
