The Updated Wedding Bouquet Style!

The days of prim, manicured and stiff bouquets are behind us. It's time to skip the traditional wedding bouquets and think voluminous, oversized and unexpected!

We're seeing more and more brides opt for natural, unconventional and creative bouquets rather than the usual round or posy shaped bunches.

This current look has a vibe that seems effortlessly elegant and a bit boho. Mixing and matching textures and adding unexpected pops of herbs, flora and leaves give these bouquets a naturally beautiful look without seeming 'overly manicured'.

The key to this new trend is to think lively, organic and almost playfully messy.

Another aspect of this type of wedding bouquet is to play with shape and size. Whether  having one or two large focused flowers, or an array of different plants of length and width.

This on-trend style is highly dependent on the season. Using only the freshest in-season flora is an effortless way to exude a style that's both modern and chic.

This summer's hot hand arrangements include intense peaches, bright yellows and fresh mint accents. Flowers such as liatris, hydrangea and lakespur can make any summer time wedding bouquet seem more organic and fluid.

While spring is the ultimate blooming season, cascading blossoms and buds add lots of texture, think Bells of Ireland, wax flower and lilac for a playful ‘primavera’ wedding bouquet.

These bouquets are all about seeming like the bride went into a gorgeous overflowing garden and grabbed all her favorite blooms.

Creative alternatives such as succulents can give some unexpected character, while bouquets of dried lavender or gold wheat are great 'rustic chic' options.

Some hot bouquet ideas this autumn were made up of deep colored wildflowers and intense green herbs - even some with stunning bright fall foliage. Incorporating various shapes like unique leaves, will not only stick to the theme of the season, but is a great way to add personal touches and preferences.

With winter just around the corner, a great way to add volume and life to a winter themed assortment is by including acorns, gardenia and amaryllis. Don't just stick to the standard winter wedding color palette, but try adding in bright greens and lively colors, while incorporating flecks of gold or platinum will add just the right touch of glam.

Try adding a metallic paper handle around a bunch of winterberries, eucalyptus and star of Bethlehem flowers for a fresh take on winter florals.

This is a bouquet that the bride (almost) won’t want to throw, and will definitely make whoever catches it, feel very lucky!
