There's something so special about working with a florist to craft your wedding bouquet. From the colors and textures to the size and composition, the big-day blooms you choose all say a lot about your style as a bride. While a symmetrical, round bouquet might be more traditional, loose, organic-inspired arrangements have earned their place in the bridal world as well.
Depending on the vibe of your wedding, a perfect arrangement can feel too precious — if nothing else about your big day is entirely classic or traditional, why should your bouquet be? For outdoor weddings or those that are a bit more casual, a more contemporary bouquet with less structure would be more fitting. And just because you're going with a more natural look doesn't mean you'll lose any style. An organic bouquet can feel just as formal and look as lovely as the next arrangement.
The key to a perfectly imperfect bouquet is restraint. Sure, you can mix together any combination of blooms, but choosing those that complement each other for a just barely wild effect looks best. Consider traditional bridal flowers, like peonies, roses, and ranunculus, pair with something a bit more unexpected, like succulents, looser greenery, and fresh herbs. And don't be scared to mix colors! Surprise your guests (and liven up your wedding photos!) with a pop of punchy red or romantic purple, in your otherwise white bouquet.
