Round BouquetThe large circular faces of crinkly Icelandic poppies play up this shape, which echoes a full skirt and contrasts beautifully with a sleeker one. Also consider roses, anemones, or any flowers with spherical blooms.

Crescent Shaped BouquetThis feathery curve is composed of cushion, spider, and deco mums, and bell-shaped nerines. "It's striking the way the flowers fall around your hands," says Cetti. Use any blooms that can be wired to create the distinctive look; dangling ones form the curling ends.

Oval BouquetMore than a foot long, this vibrant ellipse of 'Pink Floyd' amaryllis makes a bold statement. The clean, graphic shape and single hue suggest a modern affair and are a stunning counterpoint to an ornate gown. Also try calla or trumpet lilies. Dress by Oscar de la Renta.

Pageant BouquetThis sweeping creation is a twist on the pageant (or "presentation") bouquet, named for the long-stemmed arrangement a beauty queen carries in the crook of her arm. It is 18 inches long and consists of hellebores, clematis, gladiolus, forget-me-nots, and sweet peas. Its grand dimensions are ideal for a formal occasion; for a more casual event, try paring down the size.

Cascade BouquetIn this update of a classic style, fluttery phalaenopsis orchids form a tapering waterfall that looks exquisite with a mermaid gown. Any flowers can be configured into this form; Cetti likes these for their crisp petals and gracefully arching stems. Dress by Angel Sanchez.
