For many of us, weddings and flowers go hand in hand! For good reason. They add so much texture and beauty and are a super romantic touch. For those who plan to carry a bouquet, what's your current vision? Are you using real or artificial flowers? Is anyone considering a unique alternative to a bouquet? Share a photo here!

I'm using real flowers, and I want something full and loose. My wedding colours (blue and white) will inspire the colour scheme. Right now, I'm thinking of something along these lines:

    Thanks! Yeh I have always been a sucker for the cascading bouquets! And keepsake wise its a bonus as well to use silk flowers! A friend of mine used fresh flowers in in trying to preserve it she got some bad advice and killed it instantly..

    I waffled back and forth so much on this, but decided that I want real flowers for the bridal party. My inspiration has, of course, come from Pinterest. Planning on ordering bulk flowers and putting them together ourselves.

    Brooch bouquet baby!!!!


    We are pivoting to silk flowers for our bridesmaids too because we are splitting events up. I want something that looks like chrysanthemums and has either lavender or thistles (for a hint of light purple) like this:Show me your bouquet / floral inspiration! 7

    I’m doing all fake and hoping I can pull it all off lol 😂 I hated the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on something that will die on me. I’m in love with my bouquet but the other flowers are going to be randomly placed around the venue and I hope are at least a little passable.Mirros,vases and Show me your bouquet / floral inspiration! 8

    Love seeing all these pretty flowers! My local florist has given the okay on my vision for a bouquet. I really wanted to do just roses, because they symbolize love. The colours will look great I think with the mauve/pinky bridesmaid dresses and navy suits on the guys.

    and here is what I was thinking for the bridesmaids. Similar to mine, just scaled back a bit.

    I'll use it twice or make a new one for next year. I like that your first anniversary is paper, so it works for that too!

    Me too! They've been in a box for almost a year! When our florist had just tossed a few together when we were with her last year, we were in love with them. I can't wait to get them done and see the finished product!

    Love all of this! And extra flowers for signage and cake will be a beautiful touch. I think we’re doing the same thing!

    We are having artificial flowers. We don't have them made up yet as they're sitting in a box at the moment. As soon as our florist is not too busy, we're going to be getting them made up.

    For my bouquet and MOH bouquet we are having Calla Lily, Anemone Flower, Leaves and Berries.

    For boutineers and corsages it will be Calla Lily and Berries

    For our centerpieces we will be doing Hidrangeas, Berries, Anemone Flower and Leaves

    I’m using real flowers! We ordered a lot of flowers as they are important to me on the big day.

    Centrepieces for half the tables will be bouquets and the other half will be floating candles. We’ll be continuing the burgundy colour scheme for the floating candles. This is just a sample photo.Show me your bouquet / floral inspiration! 15

    I'm not sure, real or fake. But this is my inspiration! Or something similar. Actually found it last week when someone mentioned the budget bride website in the forumns!

    I've fallen in love with white anemones, dahlias, and eucalyptus with a little burgundy and blush.

    Hahaha thank you! 🤗. I think I saw from other posts that you’ve also postponed. If you’re looking for a project they were surprisingly super easy to make after watching some YouTube videos! I’m not a crafty person at all and actually enjoyed making them! But if you’re doing real flowers they will be beautiful as well! I love your colour scheme (obviously lol)

    We our doing some blue for our bouquets too. I ended up making our bouquets out of artificial flowers from AliExpress, then made some arrangements for the head table and other things with leftover AliExpress flowers as well as dollarama and michaels. Definitely saved us some money going with artificial and the hope is we can sell them afterwards! Now we just have to store them until next August after postponing! The first pic is my bouquet and the second is what the bridesmaid ones look like. I love your inspiration pics! Very similar to what mine were!
