Wedding Bouquet Top Tips
Decide on Your Overall Wedding Vision First
Alyssa Abshier and Victoria Nadler, co-founders of Amber Sol Collective, encourage to-be-weds to "figure out what the overall style of your wedding is before you discuss your flowers. With so many varying styles of flowers and flower arranging, the aesthetic of your blooms can and will help dictate the style of your whole day. If you're the chic and minimal type of to-be-wed, you may be looking for tighter arrangements with more traditional colors. Whereas if you're the whimsical and free-spirited to-be-wed, you may be looking for wispier, more organic types of flowers."
Keep Scale in Mind
Bron Hansboro, the owner of The Flower Guy Bron, stresses the importance of "considering your height if you're opting for a cascading bouquet with an overgrown look. The arrangement should be a statement piece, not something you're hiding behind!"
Complement the Wedding-Day Attire
CeCe Todd, the owner of CeCe Designs, says that the first thing she does with clients is to inquire about their fashion. "If you have a ton of beadwork or a very elaborate bodice, I want to try to make you a simpler bouquet. On the other hand, if you have a very simple dress, I want to try to make your bouquet a little bit more extravagant to stand out against it."
Soft-and-Romantic Wedding Bouquets
There's something so calming about looking at a pastel- or neutral-hued arrangement of lush roses, lisianthus and ranunculus. Soft-and-romantic wedding bouquets are both totally of-the-moment, yet equally timeless, meaning you can't go wrong with a dreamy, elegant flower arrangement for your big day.

To complement the purple flowers in this gorgeous wedding bouquet, the floral designer added in a few stems of ranunculus and rose.
Dark-and-Moody Wedding Bouquets
From the rise in popularity of Dark-Academia-themed weddings to the continued prominence of dramatic wedding photography that features heavy post-production filtering, it's clear that to-be-weds are only growing in their obsession with dark-and-moody wedding trends. To bring a dramatic wedding aesthetic into your flower bouquet, consider including amaranthus, cosmos or scabiosa in the design.

Pro tip: Talk with your florist about ways to potentially repurpose your bouquet or even bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces at the reception to help stretch your floral budget.
Modern-and-Eclectic Wedding Bouquets
Tying the knot at a retro resort in Palm Springs or atop an urban rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline? Then a modern and eclectic look will complement your sleek wedding theme perfectly. Not only does flower variety matter with modern bouquets, though we suggest you look into anthurium, Icelandic poppies and protea, shape is über important here too. Think outside the box and have your florist create an angular clutch instead of a classic round arrangement. For the really bold to-be-wed, think about carrying a hoop bouquet, garland bouquet or even a potted plant.

Talk about stunning. We can't imagine any to-be-wed that wouldn't want a clutch like this at their own wedding.

Colorful Wedding Bouquets
Color lovers are in luck, there's no shortage of eye-catching hues when it comes to the world of wedding flowers. Before settling on varieties to use in your floral arrangements, make sure you've honed in on a wedding color palette that will guide the design of your wedding. From there, you can start to research flower varieties that will work with your of-the-moment color scheme. If you're drawn to oranges and yellows, consider utilizing craspedia, goldenrod, Icelandic poppies, ranunculus and zinnias. For those that gravitate toward reds and pinks, ask your floral designer to include varieties like anemones, astilbe, bougainvillea, carnations, Coral Charm peonies, cosmos and garden roses. And if you're a to-be-wed that absolutely loves blues and purples, think about including some of the following fresh flowers: astilbe, clematis, delphinium, hyacinth, hydrangea, lilac, lupine, muscari, larkspur, tweedia and veronica.
24. Fall Wedding Bouquet With Rose and Sweet Pea
Keeping seasonality in mind when selecting colorways for your bouquet is a great way to ensure the design feels connected to your celebration instead of looking out of place.

34. Pink Bouquet Packed With Garden Roses
A few anemone and peony blooms snuck into this design, however, the main botanical was rose.
35. Purple Anemone, Dahlia and Orchid Bouquet
Anemones are a great bouquet flower because they come in multiple colorways, such as white and purple which are both seen here.
Boho Wedding Bouquets
Bohemian weddings are all about texture. In terms of wedding decor that can look like leather, macrame and rattan. But, when it comes to boho wedding flower ideas, foliage–especially pampas grass and dried palm leaves or ferns—are your friend. Layer in wildflower-like blooms such as baby's breath, hellebore, tweedia and waxflower for a fresh-from-the-field vibe.

42. All-White Bouquet
White orchid, pampas grass, ranunculus and rose were all included in this monochromatic wedding bouquet.
Rustic Wedding Bouquets
Rustic weddings center around bucolic locations (think a mountain ranch) and woodsy, country-inspired wedding decorations. For your floral arrangements, blend fresh-cut flowers with ample greenery (think: dusty Miller and succulents) and wildflowers like thistle or Queen Anne's lace. While not a must, many couples planning rustic-themed weddings will layer in twine and wood to the decor to add warmth.
43. Tightly Packed Pink Bouquet
While loose and flowy bouquets are rising in popularity, we'll always have a soft spot for more tightly packed bouquets.
44. Bouquet With Yellow Ranunculus
This rustic arrangement had a just-picked-from-the-field vibe.
45. Dahlia Bouquet With Rustic Maple Leaves
Normally foliage takes a back seat to fresh-cut flowers in a bouquet, but not in this design. We love how stunning and prominent the maple leaves are.
46. White Bouquet With Stock
Stock added height to this classic ranunculus and rose wedding bouquet.
47. Peach-Hued Wildflower Bouquet
White butterfly ranunculus blooms and sprigs of dried ruscus were among the ingredients in this design.
48. Fall Wedding Bouquet With White Ranunculus
The contrast between crisp white and deep burgundy seen in this clutch is stunning.

Reds, browns and purples worked together seamlessly in this design for a mountaintop wedding in Colorado.
51. Brown Bouquet With Touches of Delphinium
While this clutch predominantly featured brown flowers (rose and protea are both seen here), subtle hints of blue delphinium added softness and contrast.
Classic Wedding Bouquets
There's a reason certain wedding color palettes and flower combinations are classics—these timeless, tried-and-true looks feel refined and simply never go out of style. Three flower varieties that top the list for classic blooms: roses, peonies and dahlias. You can't go wrong with a clutch made of white roses and soft pink peonies accented by eucalyptus. Ultimately, both white-and-green and white-and-pink bouquets aren't going to go out of style anytime soon. Other classic fresh-cut flowers include: anemone, freesia (though Miranda Priestly may beg to differ), gardenia, lisianthus and ranunculus.
52. White-and-Green Bouquet With Rose and Sweet Pea
The combination of green and white is an absolute classic that will never go out of style.
53. Rustic All-White Bouquet
If you're looking for a white flower but want to achieve a wildflower-like vibe, consider spirea, heath rice flower or waxflower.
54. Coral Charm Peony and Fringe Tulip Bouquet
We're obsessed with the subtle texture that fringe tulips bring to an arrangement.
55. Eucalyptus and Garden Rose Bouquet
What's not to love about garden roses? Their ample petal structure is simply divine.
56. Classic Bouquet With Chamomile
Not only does chamomile make great tea, but the plant's delicate yellow-centered blooms also add a whimsical touch to bouquets.
Cascading Wedding Bouquets
Cascading bouquets are not only super elegant, but they also have the added benefit of hiding the stems of the bouquet so the flowers can take center stage. There are certain botanicals that lend themselves well to cascading bouquets: Calla lilies, Dendrobium orchid, delphinium, muscari, sweet pea and tulips, for example. Foliage and vines are another key consideration with cascading bouquets as they can help add shape to the arrangement.
57. Cosmo, Rose and Poppy Bouquet
The white cosmo bloom seen here that looks almost like its petals have fan folds is called a "Cupcakes White" cosmo bipinnatus.
58. Muscari, Peony, Scabiosa and Sweet Pea Bouquet
The petite bell-shaped blooms of muscari make it a great candidate for lush cascading bouquets.
59. Anemone and Fern Bouquet
Ferns and other pieces of trailing greenery gave this bouquet its cascading look.
60. Rose and Sweet Pea Bouquet
Apricot-hued sweet peas took this bouquet from beautiful to absolutely stunning.
61. Tropical Orchid Bouquet
Because of the long stems that orchids have, they're a great candidate for inclusion in cascading bouquets.
62. Rustic Bouquet With Larkspur
Blue larkspur and green vines worked harmoniously in this design.
63. Cascading Orchid and Rose Bouquet
This bouquet didn't include a single piece of greenery and we're not mad about that decision, the glam look is breathtaking.
Bouquets With Lots of Greenery
As beautiful as all-floral bouquets are, the reality is that fresh-cut flowers are pricey. Adding in ample greenery to your designs is a great way to stretch the budget without sacrificing style. Consider adding in dusty miller, eucalyptus, Ruscus or smilax.
64. Dahlia Bouquet With Silver Dollar Eucalyptus
When it comes to eucalyptus, there are a lot of varieties to be aware of. While silver dollar eucalyptus was used here, baby blue, seeded and willow are also popular varieties.
65. Dahlia and Rose Bouquet With Various Greenery

69. Ranunculus Bouquet With Baby Blue Eucalyptus
The strong stem structure of baby blue eucalyptus is a great way to add volume to a wedding bouquet.
