The Most Beautiful Wedding Bouquets and Styles

In addition to the traditional and fun (yet at times dangerous) bouquet throwing, wedding bouquets are a style accessory that will complete your bridal look.
Your bridal bouquet should match your wedding’s theme and add that beautiful extra touch to your wedding look, without taking the spotlight from your dress and you. Basically, your wedding bouquet is a delicate mix of floral artistry, wedding décor, and a key fashion accessory! Now that is a lot of responsibility for such a small element!  

Before our round up of the prettiest wedding bouquets we’ve seen, here is our 2 cents on how to choose yours:

Always choose your wedding dress before you start thinking of your wedding bouquet design:

If your dress for example, has a patterned skirt, then choosing a cascade bouquet is not the best idea as it will hide your dress’s best feature.
On the other hand, if you’re going for a full princess style gown, carrying a big wedding bouquet will add unnecessary volume, while a tiny wedding bouquet will make your dress look even bigger. In this case, the best way to go is with a medium-sized bouquet!

Your wedding bouquet’s design should match your wedding theme:  

Just imagine holding a pampas grass wedding bouquet, while walking down a crystal-studded aisle. Makes no sense, right?
While you don’t always have to carry the same flowers as your centerpieces, staying in the same color scheme and overall floral variety is a guarantee for good taste and decor harmony.

 Think of the wedding bouquet’s base design:

Wrapped in ribbons, silk, or just bare stems? This is where you can incorporate symbolic or emotional items like an heirloom brooch or even your “something blue”! Think outside the box!

Choose a bouquet that’s comfortable to carry:

You will be holding your wedding bouquet for a big chunk of the day, so make sure it is not too heavy or awkward to carry and its handle is well proportioned and fits in your hand.
Also don’t forget about fragrances, as strong scents can make you feel lightheaded after several hours.

Now you’re ready to get inspired with our selection of the prettiest wedding bouquets grouped by theme to make choosing your bridal bouquet that much easier!

Rustic wedding bouquet ideas

Opt for a natural bridal bouquet that doesn’t look structured or geometric, and go for an uneven, imperfectly perfect design. As for the choice of florals, think of mixing wildflowers (daisies, chamomile, lavender, etc.), branches and greenery (rosemary, eucalyptus etc.) all wrapped in burlap or other earthy materials. Don’t be afraid to throw in a couple of more classic flowers like roses or lilies to give that extra chic feel! As for your color palette, there is no restriction here, for rustic wedding bouquets what matters most is the shape and type of flowers used.

Warm toned wedding bouquet ideas

Warm and deep color palettes add that dramatic layer to your overall wedding look! Especially when getting married in the winter or fall. Vibrant shades of red and orange, deep colors, and earthy tones are key for the perfect autumnal, cozy vibe. Your wedding bouquet will radiate that intimate and warm romantic feel!

Romantic Classic Wedding Bouquet styles

Traditional, classic bouquets have stood the test of time with their elegant, often structured composition. Their classy and simple color palettes, and their pretty and chic flower varieties. Nothing will say bride and embody that sweet, pretty and dreamy feel more than flowers like peonies, hydrangeas, lilies and roses to name a few mixes with leaves and dainty tiny flowers.

Boho-Chic Wedding Bouquet Ideas

A bohemian bridal bouquet composition is effortless yet chic. A typical boho-chic wedding bouquet is composed of a mix of dried flowers, antique tones, etc. arranged together into a beautiful earthy and romantic cascading wedding bouquet. Think pampas grass (and some more pampas grass because what is a boho-chic wedding without them?), feathers, soft color palettes, and an overall airy and light feel. To make your bouquet stand out, why not wrap your handle with vintage-y materials like macramé or woven yarn.

Greenery Wedding Bouquet Styles

It is all about the simplicity of foliage, and the variety of its shapes, sizes, and shades of green. A greenery wedding bouquet can have touches of flowers (whether white or colored) as long as lush greens are dominant! A favorite among minimalistic, simple, or rustic brides, the leaves and foliage trend is certainly here to stay. Plus it can be also adapted to most wedding themes, from the simplest to the most sophisticated.

Unique wedding bouquet styles

Why not opt for a different and unique wedding bouquet? An alternative wedding bouquet doesn’t have to mean an eccentric choice of elements, your bridal bouquet can be equally unique with its shape. Don’t hesitate to break the codes and unleash your creative side (while still trying to match your theme!) you will certainly find the wedding bouquet idea that will make your wedding look memorable!
