If you’ve thumbed through your parent’s old wedding photo albums, you know exactly what kind of bouquet has been popular for decades. We’re talking white and blush roses with babies breath and the perfect amount of deep green foliage. Throw a sash around the stems and you’ve got a classic bouquet. It’s a nice bouquet, but does it really fit your style? You want something fancy, beautiful, and unique. That’s where this inspiration for fancy floral bouquets comes in. Skip the tried-and-true and go with something you’ll actually want to keep once the ceremony is over.
1. Single Stem Wedding Bouquets
When you think of a wedding bouquet, a big clump of flowers probably comes to mind. Subvert all expectations by picking one single-stem flower instead. Go for a bloom that grows big and hearty, like dahlia or protea. Plus, it will pop against your white wedding dress.
2. Minimalist Bouquets
While wedding bouquets have become extravagant including so many different kinds of florals, simple bouquets are just as gorgeous and make a statement. Similar to the single stem bouquets, minimalist bouquets keep things simple and classy. Choose just one type of flower in one color and fill the whole bouquet. Do the same for the greenery and you have a fancy bouquet worth talking about.
3. Boho Wedding Bouquets
Boho bouquets are like the polar opposites of the minimalist bouquet. Rather than simple and clean, you’re going big. In addition to big, bold blooms, more is more when it comes to the greenery. Your boho wedding bouquet should take up space. Get ready for the drama!
4. Monochrome Bouquets
You’ve likely picked a signature color for your wedding, like the 2019 color of the year, Living Coral. Why mix in contrasting colors to your flowers? While that may have been the trend in the past, pull out all the stops and stick to that one color instead. Your monochrome bouquet will fit right in.
5. Local Flower Bouquets
Support local businesses by filling your bouquet with local flowers. Ask your florist to stick to blooms native to the area. This is a great opportunity for a bouquet filled with wildflowers–another great wedding trend.
6. Dried Floral Bouquets
The problem with most wedding bouquets is that, by the next week or even the next day, most of the flowers will be wilted or dead. But what if they’re already “dead” to begin with? Fill your bouquet with dried flowers that you can keep long after the wedding reception has ended. They’ll add texture to your wedding and even photograph well.
