With a dreamy and organic feel, oversized bridal bouquets are set to stay in the spotlight. These floral masterpieces are guaranteed to capture the heart and they’re a wonderful choice if you adore flowers or if you’ve having a floral-inspired wedding theme.
Make sure you discuss your dreams for a dramatic bridal bouquet with your florist as there are a number of things to take into account, including you and your wedding dress. It’s important that your bouquet enhances and compliments your gown, rather than swamping you so you can’t actually see the beauty of your aisle style. We suggest doing some serious pinning and taking your ideas to your florist, who can then work their magic to create an oversized bouquet that is simply made for you.
Don’t forget, your oversized bridal bouquet doesn’t just have to consist of blooms! While you may want large, pillow soft peonies to be the main feature of your flowers, you can ask your florist to work in feathers, foliage, Pampas grass and lots more! This will help to give your bouquet weight and it’ll easily add to its size – just make sure it’s not so heavy that you can’t actually carry it down the aisle!
Big, bright bouquets that are bursting with an array of colours really do look incredible. They’re a lovely choice for a relaxed, Summer celebration that’s full of happiness and we can’t help but smile when we see this style of bouquet.

Foliage-based bouquets are still hot news in the wedding world and this is a lovely choice if you’re dreaming of a woodland, rustic or botanical affair. Understated yet elegant, foliage and greenery can easily make for a statement bridal bouquet with a difference.
Keep it neutral with lots of white, ivory and pale blooms for an oversized bridal bouquet that is totally timeless. Opt for large, blousy blooms with a handful of greenery and you’ll have a bouquet that’s going to get your guests talking.
When it comes to oversized bridal bouquets that exude drama and romance, the possibilities really are endless. Make sure you gather your inspiration, do your research and let the florist do the rest – this is not a task to tackle alone so we definitely recommend letting the professionals take care of it.
