To sum up; 1 bridal bouquet, 2 smaller posies, maybe for bridesmaids, 1 posy, suitable for a flower girl, and last but not least, 3 button holes.
You could of course put these flowers together however you wish – or maybe for table arrangements, a couple of blooms in old bottles, or a couple of larger vase arrangements.
