When it comes to wedding flowers, brides spend most of their time fretting about their own bouquets, and with good reason—they can totally distract or add to your bridal look. But the same is true of bridesmaid bouquets—the right combination will give something extra to your 'maids' bridal party style. While they may not steal the stage of the floral show at the wedding, these bouquets should be just as gorgeous as the bridal bouquet that inspired them!

Thankfully, bouquets have come a long way from the matchy-matchy bundle of roses that bridesmaids used to carry down the aisle. While the classic rose—or peony or hydrangeas—haven’t gone out of style, they’re now being mixed with other elements to create unique looks. Think plenty of greenery or unexpected flowers like king protea, wildflowers, or succulents. Even without your classic flowers, these elements are standing on their own for some seriously creative bouquets.

Another way to get creative with bridesmaid bouquets? Skip flowers altogether. That’s right, you don’t need flowers for your bouquet. Banana leaves for a tropical wedding or bushels of evergreen for a winter wedding make a statement all on their own.

From the delicate and dainty to the lush and large, we’ve rounded up some stunning bridesmaid bouquets for a bit of floral inspiration. With these bouquets in hand, you and your bridesmaids will be serious squad goals.

Make the Bridal Bouquet Stand Out

We love a good cohesive look, but letting the bride's bouquet stand on its own is a beautiful option as well. Consider planning for your bridesmaids to hold vibrant bouquets of greenery with simple white floral accents so they can't overpower a bright fuchsia arrangement.

Embrace Romance

Infuse Earth Tones
