Popular Wedding Bouquets Across the U.S.


We consulted six florists from around the country to share their most popular wedding bouquets. Here, the most celebrated wedding blooms from around the U.S., by city!


Windy City brides love a classic bouquet with a modern touch (see above!), says Natalie Walsh of Hello Darling. Lily of the valley—a traditional bridal bloom—is often used solo, but here the delicate flowers are wrapped around a nosegay of sweet peas for a fresh, modern combination.

"One of the most frequent requests is 'I want my bouquet to look as if I picked the flowers from my mother's garden," says Amy Osaba, founder of the eponymous event and floral-design company. "This lush, organic look is both timeless and of-the-moment."

"Many of our brides incorporate organic elements in addition to fresh flowers," says Kathryn Parrish of Parrish Designs, who cites succulents, air plants, fresh herbs, and feathers as popular requests. "It's a great way to personalize your look."
