We can tell a lot about a bride’s personality by the style (and flower choices) of her bouquet. Some of our clients opt for simple and sweet, while others go all out with a ton of blooms. With so many options out there and oodles of Pinterest inspiration, these are a few of our favorites for best bridal bouquets!
Touch of the unexpected // incorporating unique and unexpected elements into your bridal bouquet can add that touch of interest to an otherwise classic bushel of blooms (like these kumquats in Megan’s bouquet). Whether tucking away a family heirloom or something as simple as the addition of a few pieces of fruit, we expect to see a lot more unexpected bouquet elements this wedding season.
Vibrant and tropical // what can I say, I’m still obsessed with the tropical trend that is holding strong within the wedding world. (Exhibit A: this tropical garden wedding // Exhibit B: this fresh, modern, tropical wedding inspiration). Dark, waxy greenery and hot pinks and corals (hello, Pantone’s color of the year Living Coral!) make for one super awesome bouquet.
White and timeless // fact: a white wedding bouquet will never go out of style and we love when our classic brides carry these elegant arrangements (like this one from Ella and Louie).
Go seasonal // Depending on the time of year, one’s bridal bouquet often can reflect that season’s “vibe” and we’re not mad at it. Whether you’re embracing the warmer fall hues or the cheery tones of spring, I think most florists would agree that working with your season is the best route to take when choosing your bouquet blooms. One of my favorites is this one from our shoot in Marfa, with lots of autumn-tinged texture.
Organic and green // not all bouquets need to be colorful or even be made of flowers for that matter. Greenery can be oh-so-stunning in a bouquet and we love the loose, un-tailored look for our easy-going brides. This Maui wedding was a perfect excuse for a laid-back bouquet of tropical greenery.
Overflowing // size doesn’t always matter, but if you want that WOW factor, you can’t go wrong with a big, textured bouquet. Just make sure that you’re willing to carry it around all day — those flowers can get heavy. Cascade bouquets are definitely coming back into style, as evidenced by this beauty from Coco Rose Design.
Lush and textured // I think my personal favorite bouquet style doesn’t necessarily fall within a specific mold. When I get to photograph a bouquet that is colorful and full of interest and texture (like this beauty from Rockrose Floral), it doesn’t matter the size, color, or shape. It’s just GOOD.
