If you've chosen to carry a bouquet down the aisle on your wedding day, there are so many options to consider—from color combinations and styles to flower types and size. Long gone are the days of only having the option to carry a bouquet with stems tightly wound in a shiny satin ribbon. Florists have been getting creative, putting together bouquets with beautiful, hand-dyed, loose ribbons that cascade off of artfully asymmetric bouquets. A bouquet with a long ribbon is a seriously stunning look, and more and more brides are adopting this idea as they plan their wedding day.

This style is part romantic, with a bit of an Old-World influence. The addition of a wrapped bouquet opens up a whole new world of customizable options for your wedding, and it's a style we're definitely here for. After all, it's all about the details.

Play with the textures and colors available, or even order a custom printed ribbon with a sweet note—the possibilities are endless, as you'll see from our favorite examples ahead.

Coordinate With Your Wedding Dress

A silk ribbon that's the same hue as your gown is the perfect complement to your bouquet. At her Oregon wedding on the coast, this bride used the material to contrast with the natural hues of the florals. "We kept all the other design details really neutral, letting the organic pastels really pop," she shares.

Go for Gray

A gray ribbon might not be your first selection when choosing a hue to wrap your bouquet. But, as shown here from a vintage-inspired celebration in Utah, it can make a dreamy addition to an arrangement. "Flowers featured soft cool tones accented by moments of rust," explains wedding planner Michelle Leo. "The asymmetrical design featured lush fullness and delicate movement, accentuated by flowing hand-dyed silk ribbon that caught the breeze while walking down the aisle."
