Bridesmaid Bouquet:

• 5-7 filler/volume flowers

• 3-5 accent flowers

• 1/4 bunch of texture flowers

• 1/4- 1/6 bunch of greenery total per bridesmaid bouquet

Bouts & Corsages:

• Bouts: Average 1-2 buds with a sprig of greenery per bout

Flower Crowns:

Just like bouts and corsages, flower crowns take minimal flowers with many little sprigs that will typically be leftover after creating your bouquets.
