12 Stunning Wedding Bouquets That Went Viral on Pinterest
Fragrant, lovely, and romantic, flowers play an integral role in the decoration of a wedding. However, beautiful fresh blooms can easily become your priciest expense, especially when hiring a floral designer to make arrangements. If you’re saving on flowers by having a friend or family member put together the centerpieces, there’s one area we recommend you leave up to the professionals: the bridal bouquet. It’s what you’re carrying as you walk down the aisle, and it will be in all of your wedding photos, so why worry about wilting roses or a clutch that falls apart? Work with your florist to create a stunning arrangement you’re excited to hold and that represents your tastes to a tee. Since wedding planning can be overwhelming, we scoured Pinterest to find the biggest trends in bridal blooms. Check out the 12 stunning bouquets below—which were repinned by more than 1000 people!—and be sure to pin your favourites to your own Pinterest board.
This unusual bouquet of peach roses and sage-green succulents has been pinned 6025 times! It’s perfect for a rustic winery wedding in the countryside or an enchanted forest–themed celebration in the mountains.
Succulents, moss, and pretty shades of purple stock come together in this nature-inspired clutch. In ancient Greek culture, the colour purple represented wealth, while green signified fertility and luck—three things that are welcome at a wedding ceremony.
The classic all-white bouquet never goes out of style. A bushel of delicate white baby’s breath and charming stephanotis is an affordable yet pretty bouquet. According to the traditional language of flowers, stephanotis symbolises marital happiness in the early 1900s.
A bouquet of one type of bloom in one color is simple yet wildly elegant, as seen here in this all-white posy of peonies at different stages of bloom. The shape of this type of bouquet is called nosegay. Nosegays are circular, densely arranged flowers traditionally with an 18-inch diameter. When carrying this type of bouquet, hold the it in both hands, centered at the waist.
Isn’t this cascading all-white bouquet beautiful? The mixture of roses, ranunculus, peonies, and silvery eucalyptus leaves is particularly romantic and feminine. Ranunculus and peonies are both in season in spring, so that’s when a bouquet of this grouping will be the least costly.
For a truly eye-catching and lush bouquet, mix a variety of colors, elements, and textures. Case in point: this blend of roses and peonies with silvery greenery. If you’re splurging on similar but smaller bouquets for your bridesmaids, make double use of the flowers. At the reception, have your bridesmaids place their blooms in a tight row down the center of the bridal party table. Place the flowers, bloom to stem, so all the flowers are pointed out. Voilà: You’ve got an instant runner of pretty flowers.
Want to incorporate the something blue into your bouquet? Do so by using anemones, which signify expectation and have a navy center surrounded by pillowy white petals. Strands of deep blue berries and sky-blue hyacinth add texture and depth.
This bouquet is filled with all different types of flowers (roses, peonies, and orchids) and, therefore, lots of texture. The deep marsala dahlias are stunning, and the rich colour brings to mind a cool-weather wedding. Dahlias are fall flowers, so if you’re planning a September or October ceremony, be sure to use this beloved bloom in your bouquet.
One trend that is not going anywhere? The use of peonies in bouquets. Pinterest is filled with tons and tons of peony clutches, making it the preferred flower of the modern bride. Another trend? Blush pink. The girly, romantic colour, as seen in this bouquet of white and pink peonies and roses, is sophisticated and classic.
Feathery soft peach peonies are the focal point of this bouquet. In the language of flowers, peonies relay a message of bashfulness, but when you carry a clutch this pretty, we doubt you’ll be feeling shy.
We love everything about this mysterious, alluring bouquet that features pink and deep red peonies, merlot dahlias, and plump blackberries. It’s a good idea to have some flexibility when it comes to the flowers. Think of your florist like you would a chef: They go to the market and select the best flowers available, so if the big day comes and dahlias are prettier than ranunculus, you might have to have a bouquet of peonies and dahlias instead of peonies and ranunculus.
Massive, fully blooming pink peonies and lots of silvery green leaves make up this bouquet that’s natural yet elegant. Doesn’t it look as if the bride simply gathered them all together herself just before the wedding?
