Classic Red Tulip and Rose Bouquet

Romantic red flowers are the perfect bloom for your bridal bouquet at any time of the year, but we especially love the idea of a bold arrangement bursting with deep tones for your fall or winter nuptials. Not only do these pretty petals evoke the holiday spirit (in a non-cheesy way), they also warm up your ceremony and reception space.

There are endless ways to create your berry-toned bouquet: You can opt for something incredibly statement-making, brimming with burgundy and crimson blooms. Or if you're searching for a more understated vibe, consider a red-and-white mix of blossoms that feels fresh and bright.

And with many of the prettiest wedding flowers available in red shades, you can feature just about any bloom you like and still create the perfect ruby-hued bouquet. Use classic roses, garden roses, peonies, clematis, anemones, or ranunculus for your red details. Another plus to toting a red bouquet on your big day? It will truly pop against your wedding dress, especially if you plan to marry in the fall or winter. With little color to compete in your backdrop, your red bouquet will take center stage.

Also, red blossoms vibe with any type of wedding. Whether you're throwing a classic ballroom celebration, a chic city fête, a rustic barn bash or a seaside soirée, a crimson bouquet will complement the setting.
