Creative and Unusual Wedding Bouquets March 23, 2019
There is one trend that is stealing the limelight in the wedding industry and that’s unusual bridal bouquets. More and more brides are swapping traditional bouquets for something that is loud, proud and not afraid to stand out from the crowd. These eye-catching designs are the perfect choice for the bride who doesn’t want to stick to the rules and the wedding world can’t get enough of them. If you love the look of these beautiful bouquets, discover some of our favourites below…
When it comes to choosing an unusual wedding bouquet, we recommend chatting to your florist about your ideas and visions, as they will be able to advise on weight, costs and more. Consider the size of your bouquet, do you want it to be oversized and make a statement, or small and dainty? The actual shape of your bouquet will also have an impact on the overall design. There are tonnes of different bouquet shapes to choose from. From trailing, waterfall, asymmetrical, heart-shaped and even bouquets that are overflowing with dried grasses and feathers.

Think about the type of florals you want in your bouquet – this is where you can really let your imagination run wild as the options are endless. From handfuls of foliage and greenery, to pampus grass and feathers. Succulents, orchids, palm leaves, proteas and more, there are hundreds of Pinterest-worthy blooms to make your heart flutter. We suggest using an array of colours and textures to really give your wedding bouquet the wow factor – this combination is what will turn heads as you walk down the aisle, not to mention the epic photographs.
It’s the subtle details such as streaming velvet or silk ribbons in an array of colours that can effortlessly add a unique touch to your bridal bouquet. Make it stand out from the crowd by adding a personal touch, such as the material of your dress or a brooch with a photo of a loved one in.

Don’t forget to consider the cost of your unusual wedding bouquet. Generally, the bigger and heavier the bouquet the more expensive it will be. That’s also the case if you’ll be choosing flowers that are harder to source and supply. You’ll need to factor this into your budget, but your florist will be able to advise.
From oversized bouquets bursting with colour to tropical-inspired palm leaves, we love the fact that brides are getting completely and utterly creative with their bridal bouquets. The trend offers you the chance to really showcase your personality and individual style throughout your wedding day. So, get pinning!
