When it comes to wedding bouquet ideas, the best place to start is considering which trends you find most compelling. That’s why we’ve brought together some of our favorite on-trend and classic wedding bouquet ideas that you can adapt for your chosen wedding color palette.

And if you love floral details, you can even get some floral invitations to match! Our collection of digital invitations has something to match every floral theme — from boho blooms to traditional rose bouquets.

1. Local 

We love florists who are passionate about sourcing local florals and greenery — it can lead to some of the most gorgeous bouquets that stay true to the life you and your beloved have built together. This organic, natural style is the perfect complement to your surroundings and location, and beautifully reflects the way flora interacts in the wild.

2. Lush

Luscious pops of rich jewel tones create a stunning addition to your wedding ensemble, and can really bring another level to a romantic wedding theme. This works beautifully for a highly ornate wedding with lots of rich colors, or for when you want to add some drama to an otherwise soft color palette.

3. Tropical

Palms, ferns, banana leaves, lilies, birds-of-paradise — there is so much tropical flora and greenery that can make for a truly gorgeous bridal bouquet. Whether you opt to go heavier on florals or focus on luscious tropical greenery, you can use your bouquet to accent any destination wedding or tropical party theme.

4. Colorful

From brilliant, bright-hued florals with cascading ribbons, to an eye-catching rainbow ombre, we love couples who play with color for their bouquets. The contrast of magenta, canary yellow, or amethyst against a white dress makes for an absolutely stunning scene.

5. Greenery

Greenery is often the unsung hero of the wedding bouquet, but we are all for show-stopping bouquets that let the greenery be the star. For a boho wedding vibe mix eucalyptus, blue thistle, and succulents, or create a more contemporary feel with ferns, trailing amaranth, and Clematis Vine. As an added bonus for going all-in on greenery, you’ll save some cash as floral bouquets tend to carry a hefty price tag.

6. Minimalist

Single stems or just a select few of your favorite florals are a gorgeous bouquet option for the minimalist couple. Whether complementing an overall minimalist wedding aesthetic or simply allowing your attire to be the focal point, opting for the “less is more” mentality is a chic and increasingly popular alternative to the larger bouquets.

7. Cascading

Perhaps the opposite of the minimalist bouquet is the exquisite and luxurious cascading bouquet. Featuring loose florals, trailing greenery, ribbons, and ferns, this bouquet style is notably romantic and whimsical. Depending on the types of flowers and greenery, the cascading style can offer an unruly and natural mountain flair, a royal elegance, or a modern romance.

8. All-White Flowers

If big colors aren’t your thing or you want to make a statement without color, we love the idea of going for a white bouquet. This works beautifully with traditional blooms like white roses or baby’s breath, or you could mix in a few sprigs of greenery for a hint of depth. Choose this to match an all-white wedding, a sophisticated ceremony, or to complement a non-traditional wedding dress or suit.

9. Subtle Stems

As you’re considering different wedding bouquet ideas, you might decide you don’t want a large and lavish bouquet after all. If that’s true for you, swap to carrying a handful of handpicked stems instead. This is a fun idea for a large bloom like sunflowers for a fall wedding or dahlias for a winter wedding, but you could also carry a sweet selection of daisies or baby’s breath for a more romantic spring wedding or summer wedding.

10. Fragrant Herbs

Wedding bouquets are usually all about the flowers, but for a fun way to create interest try focusing on the texture and scent instead by adding in fragrant herbs. Lavender, thyme, rosemary, and sage all add something unique to a bride’s bouquet for bridesmaid bouquets.

11. Pastel Rainbow

Pastel-colored bouquet

Pastel tones are wonderful for whimsical weddings and romantic ceremonies, but they work for just about any type of wedding day. Swap bold hues for subtle pinks, purples, yellows, blues, and oranges for a sweeter wedding bouquet filled with pastel petals.

12. All Roses

Roses are always popular for wedding bouquets and it’s easy to see why — they’re stunning, readily available, versatile, and work for so many different styles and themes. Celebrate the timeless beauty of roses by making your wedding bouquet all about them and nothing else.

13. Wildflowers

Combine your favorite wildflowers together for a bouquet that feels completely at home for a rustic wedding or boho wedding. Thistle, ranunculus, zinnias, and baby’s breath work together to create a look that feels homemade, cozy, and interesting.

14. Big and Bold

In true opposite fashion to the subtle stems and minimalist trends, big bouquets are also back in style. Take the opportunity to craft an incredible wedding bouquet filled with a maximalist mix of large blooms, small stems, and greenery that’s almost too heavy to carry down the aisle alone.
