Overview


One of the most anticipated experiences in every bride-to-be’s wedding planning is choosing her bouquet. However, when faced with the real-life sea of styles and flowers, a bride-to-be may soon become overwhelmed. To Have & To Hold offers more than 150 unique bouquets, pictured in 200 luminous photographs, that incorporate scores of seasonal flowers both familiar and exotic, as well as flowering branches, pinecones, leaves, feathers, family lace—even fruits and herbs—to guide her in her decision.

David Stark and Avi Adler escort the bride-to-be through today’s maze of flowers and bouquet styles, identifying the indispensable basics: Labels and deconstructed bouquets name every flower. Lists of flowers available by season and by price help narrow the choices based on when the wedding will take place and what the budget is. Also included are practical details such as how to care for flowers, how to make your own stunning and cost-effective bouquet, how to hold the bouquet and then how to preserve it, and how to tie in boutonnieres, bridesmaids’ bouquets, and flower girls’ baskets. In addition, the authors’ personal anecdotes offer sage advice on bouquet do’s and don’ts.

To Have & To Hold has a bouquet to strike any fancy for every kind of wedding day.
