There is something so elegant and utterly romantic about an over the arm bouquet, commonly known as an arm sheaf bouquet! The style was very popular in the 1930′s but I have a feeling they will be making a bit of a comeback. The bouquet is draped over your arm rather than held in your hand and will instantly give your look an element of vintage glamour.
This style is best suited to long stemmed flowers such as tulips, delphiniums, roses, larkspur, gladiolus or calla lilies. Although if you have your heart set on a certain variety you could incorporate shorter stemmed flowers if arranged on a bed of foilage to give the length required. The original vintage bouquets below traditionally featured roses, baby’s breath, ivy, ferns and stargazer lilies and often had ribbons trailing from the bouquet. I’m not sure how the bride below fitted down the aisle though with the size of her bouquet!

I adore the modern interpretation of the arm sheaf bouquet above. Those poppies are just amazing – love, love, love them! Are any of you lovely people considering this style of bouquet?
