When looking for inspiration for the bouquets at your wedding, consider all of the elements of the bridal party: the bride, the bridesmaids, and the groom and groomsmen. There is an entire world of flowers you can explore and have fun with when designing a bouquet or boutonniere with your florist so make sure you explore as many avenues as you can.
For the Bride:
In the featured collage, you get a combination of bold and classic. If you’re looking for something vibrant, consider mixing an array of colors to create an ombre effect, as seen in the left photo. To add dimension, mix up the flowers with garden roses, tea roses, poppies, ranunculus, orchids, peonies, and more. Then, create a cascading effect by adding a longer floral piece so that it breaks the mold of a typical bouquet shape. But if classic what you desire, you can’t get more elegant than white peonies in this bouquet to complement the bride’s look. If you really can’t decide between bold and classic, meet in the middle by incorporating lighter hues of vibrant colors, as seen in the top right photo of the featured collage. By adding the hint of dark green with the foliage, there’s depth, but also a softness to the bouquet because of the pale tones of pink.
For the Bridesmaids: Although the bride is the star of the show, don’t forget about the bridesmaids! Their looks will also be completed with a bouquet. To help compliment their look while also highlighting yours, choose a smaller sized bouquet that is just as beautiful. The featured image on the right is a favorite of ours because of its delicate tones and textures. The varied height of the flowers also compliments the simplicity of the bridesmaid’s dress in the background. To compliment a darker toned dress, consider pairing simpler colors, such as white and green to make the color of the dress pop, as featured in the top left photo of the collage. And if you’re up for a more vivacious bouquet for your bridesmaids, go for the rustic looks of antique hydrangeas, roses, scabiosa pods, and spikes of purple veronica, as in the bottom left photo of the featured collage.
For the Groom/Groomsmen:
The groom’s finishing touch for his wedding day look required a boutonniere that will stand out, but not overpower him. You can never go wrong with a classic boutonniere that compliments the bride’s bouquet. The bottom left photo of the collage featured a pink, peach, and green boutonniere with dusty miller and roses. But if you’re looking to spice things up, try getting creative by adding a metal accent, such as the featured photo with the gold arrows with greenery with dusty miller and brunia berries. There is also something very elegant about a single lily boutonniere with wrapped twine and accent flowers, as in the featured top right photo. Our absolute favorite is this succulent boutonniere with red accents. Wrapped in metal twine, this boutonniere is the perfect combination of unique, sophisticated, and modern.
The floral selection for your wedding should be fun and exploratory. There is so much to learn about seasonal flowers and colors and textures that can be combined to create something beautiful and unique.
Flowers are a big deal when it comes to weddings. It helps highlight the romance and brings elation to those who are near them. When budgeting for flowers, talk to your fiance about the must-have flowers from beginning to end of your wedding day. From there, decide the types of flowers you want to have and how they’ll match the decor of your venue.
The flowers in a bride’s bouquet is the finishing touch to the bride’s look. If you’re looking for bouquets that are versatile, consider going for some of the colors and textures in the featured photo. In the bottom right corner, a simple bouquet of lavender with a silk bow embodies the elegance needed for a bride. Above this bouquet is a lovely combination of blush pink roses, white peonies, ranunculus, and a combination of greens, including eucalyptus leaves. But if you’re looking for your bouquet to be the statement piece of your look, go for the cascading bouquet, which features a mixture of garden flowers and leaves. What’s perfect about this look is that you can’t go wrong with color. The combination of color makes it look like you’ve got the perfect piece of your garden with you!
When selecting flowers for your wedding consider how you’ll want your pictures to come out during the ceremony. What colors and textures do you want surrounding you? Then, discuss ways to make your vision a reality with your Event Designer. In the featured collage, the photo on the left uses a green moss-like backdrop to accentuate the variety of pink flowers with an ombre effect. To the top right, you’ll see a more subtle approach of flowers for your ceremony, which is flower balls hanging from the gorgeous large tree. The best part about flower balls is that you can use almost any flower, so you’ll have options with colors, and you can have your florist create a variety of sizes to add depth to look. Lastly, the bottom right photo uses purple hues to highlight the copper of the venue. The petals that line the aisle match the assorted triple tower hydrangea arrangement. So creative and beautiful!
For your reception, tie in bits of your ceremonial flowers and bouquet. If you had wild flowers or a mixture of garden flowers for your ceremony, consider having centerpieces that embody that same look. The bottom left photo features seasonal flowers in The Great Hall of Celebrate at Snug Harbor. With the combination of green, yellow, orange, red, and white, the bride and groom had plenty of color options for the rest of their decor. The bottom right photo is a great way to utilize the greens of your bouquet or aisle decor. The hanging greenery of the dinner table match the leaves set as the table runner. What’s great about this look is that you can pair the greenery with almost any venue. Lastly, the top photo captures the elegance of white flowers. The bunched hydrangea and baby blue-eyes arrangements act as a runner for the table. This gives the table a rich and graceful look!
A word of caution, you may fall in love with a flower that isn’t in season for your wedding, so consult with a florist and your Event Designer to make sure you’re getting the fabulous florals you want for your wedding! Most importantly, have fun with the selection process! There are so many options to choose from and so even if you aren’t able to get the flowers you thought you wanted, you can still have the perfect arrangements for your wedding.
