14 Unique Wedding Bouquets That’ll Make You Forget About Roses

A lot of times when planning a wedding, a bride will find one photo she loves and the entire wedding theme will start to evolve from that. That’s sort of what happened to me when I came across a wedding bouquet I loved. I immediately knew I wanted not only my bouquet and my bridesmaids’ to look like that, but all of the flowers at the wedding as well. And while my florist couldn’t replicate the look completely, just having the same colors (bright red and pink mixed together) was enough to make me happy.

Just like you would go into a hair salon with a photo of a haircut you wanted to the stylist to recreate, photos of wedding bouquets can serve the same purpose. If you find a photo of a wedding bouquet you love, bring it into your florist or local flower shop and ask them a) what flowers are in it and b) if they can create something similar for you. Or you can DIY it, which is actually easier than it seems (I’m working on a post about that, next!).

If you’re looking for something unique, however, you might have to dig a little deeper. These unique wedding bouquets, below, go beyond the roses or peonies or other wedding flowers you tend to see at spring, summer, or fall weddings. Some of these aren’t even flowers, which is what makes them so cool. Take a look at some of my favorite unique wedding bouquets, below, and let us know which ones you like the best. Or, tell us what your wedding bouquet inspiration is in the comments section, below.

A large single flower (like gardenia or this glamelia rose) let you make an elegant and dramatic entrance. You can also opt for paper or silk flowers for this, too.
