After making the final touches to your “something blue” and tying it all up with the perfect tiara, your special day’s ensemble is only missing the perfect bunch of blooms. Think of it as your once-in-a-lifetime accessory that will take you from one stage of your life, into the next—it’s the cherry on top of the biggest day in your life.

 

The best part of all is that you get to carry your personalised bouquet around with you the whole day long, imprinting its beauty by capturing it in stunning wedding shots and happy snaps with your loved ones. Then, when it’s all said and done, it’s time to throw it up in the air in a true moment of tradition—blessing another potential bride-to-be with its beauty.

 

But no pressure or anything. Right?

 

So many to choose from, so little time

 

From the iconic classical touches of white roses, through to eclectic arrangements of zesty orange and deep reds—choosing a bouquet of flowers that reflects your personality and overall theme is a tricky responsibility to have. If you’ve got little or no experience in the floral field, it’s even more of a challenge.

 

Luckily, there’s some pretty talented professionals out there to do all the hard work for you, so we’ve collated some of our favourite inspirations for you to start your own mental brainstorm.

Quick tip as a finishing note: ensure your choice of flowers matches your wedding dress design. If you decide to have a consultation with a florist, give them an idea of what your dress looks like by bringing a picture along with you. This will allow them to ensure the arrangement doesn’t end up being too overpowering or unbalance the look.
