Each week for the past year, we've brought you four unique and beautiful real weddings, all of which are filled with inspiring details. And while we love every aspect of these pretty fêtes, there's one specific part of every wedding that always catches our eye: the bride's bouquet. So if you're looking for inspiration for your own special wedding bouquet, than look no further than these stunning arrangements.
While there's no arrangement we didn't like, we found 15 bouquets that we just couldn't forget. From formal all-white orchids to punchy pink peonies, our real brides walked down the aisle with some of the loveliest petals we've ever seen.
We picked classic arrangements filled with roses, peonies and ranunculus, perfect for the traditional bride, and fun and vibrant bouquets made of succulents, poppies and dahlias, ideal for the girl who favors something a bit more offbeat.
Some of our favorite bouquets include a boho bouquet of air plants, purple protea, and bleached peacock feathers created by The Little Branch, while we were also impressed by a more understated, yet equally elegant arrangement of white peonies created by Design Works. Another look we loved was a sweet bundle of Lily of the Valley, which proves sometimes less really is more. (It is, after all, the blooms Kate Middleton toted down the aisle at Westminster Abbey.)
Ready to start dreaming up your own big-day bridal blooms? Then take a second look at our favorite petals from this year's real weddings.
