The bridal bouquet is one of the single most quintessential wedding accessories. Highly photographed, bridal bouquets often represent in the overall style of the bride and also tell part of the event design story. We love working with clients in the DC area to dream up inspiration and event styling for their wedding floral design and bridal bouquets. To help in your event planning, we are sharing wedding bridal bouquet inspiration from Bright Occasions real weddings. Here are our top 15 bouquets to inspire.

Classic & White Bouquets

White bridal bouquets are forever in style and definitely a classic choice for your wedding. Make it a bouquet full of lush peonies and you’ll have one of the most sought after elegant styles for your wedding.

In recent years, the teardrop or cascading bridal bouquet is back in style for weddings. And we have a feeling we will see more beautiful all white cascading bouquets in 2017.

Modern White

What makes something go from classic to modern in the wedding world? Modern bouquets range from trendy to refined and often include things like a standout flower, a unique color, or an asymmetrical design. This handheld bridal bouquet of white flowers gets a surprise by the accents of anemones and gray foliage, making it perfect for a modern wedding.

A very classic choice for a more streamlined bride is a Calla Lilly bridal bouquet. The addition of the green foliage makes this bouquet much more modern and unique.

A touch of Texture and Color

If you love the look of an all white bridal bouquet, but long for some texture and color, you are not alone. We love taking a classic look and adding a fun pop of color and texture. Succulents, peach blooms and rice flower transformed this bouquet from ordinary to extraordinary.

Pink has long been a top accent color for weddings and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. Add in pink garden roses and you can’t help but smile when you look at this beautiful bridal bouquet.

Garden & Wild

One of the biggest wedding trends in recent years has been the move towards fuller bridal bouquets, with a loose and wild garden feel. There is just something so effortless to this look, as if you just went to a field and grabbed a bunch of flowers and foliage to carry.

If you are aiming for both a sophisticated bridal bouquet, yet keeping with this loose garden style, try asking your florist to keep it predominantly full of flowers with some foliage spilling out and around. The end result is a stunning classic bridal bouquet that is on trend with wedding design.
