Up until a short while ago I was in love with Brooch Bridal Bouquets and I still am, but then I saw a picture of a Glamelia Bridal Bouquet and I was hooked.

Glamelia Bridal Bouquets

They’re truly a work of art. These flowers first came about in the 1940’s and 50’s when brides really wanted Camellia blooms, which are naturally large.

A Glamelia bouquet (also known as composite bouquet, malmaison, or rose duchess) is essentially a bouquet made by stripping down a single type of flower (Orchids, Lilies, Gladiolas ect), stripping it down to the pedals and then wiring them back together to recreate a single large bloom. As you can imagine this is time consuming project and they can cost a pretty penny, but as you can tell from the pictures bellow, they’re gorgeous!

Glamelias have become popular because they lend a vintage, simplistic look while still making a huge statement. Plus, they’re a photographers dream to work with!

You may also consider creating your Glamelia Bridal Bouquet with fabric or silk flowers.

Another great example of a Glamelia made out of fabric instead of real flowers, the brooch makes a great accessory too!

I think the Glamelia version of a lily is even more lovely than the actually flower.
