Bouquets are one of those wedding essentials that typically get at least one photo feature all by themselves, so we deem it a pretty important visual element. The classic greenery-and-white elegance motif continues to trend as a popular motif for many lucky couples’ weddings, with their breath of fresh simplicity and quiet charm. Not only so, we also find it lovable as a flexible floral palette, as it is able to retain its delightful qualities while graciously integrating other characteristics that are brought in as a result of adjustments made to the original arrangement. Below are a few sample bouquets we’ve collected to show what we mean by this flexibility. It’s truly a wonder just how much voice and personality the classic bouquet can come to embody with the most subtle of manipulations!

Mix-‘n-matching is a great place to start! A generous blend of white blooms and greenery and can say a number of things about your wedding, depending on the type of florals and foliage you select as well as the balance of color tones!

To all our gorgeous gals out there prepping for a winter wedding – nothing says “winter” more than sparse scatterings of berry clusters! And white roses are simply too romantic!

As we had mentioned earlier, you’d be surprised at how well subtle adjustments to the white bouquet speak to specific environments or event atmospheres. Faint washes of blush or peach are the ultimate bouquet to an elegant winery or vineyard wedding!

Single-bloom collections make excellent wedding bouquets as well! Sometimes it’s better to embrace the minimalism – that alone sets you apart!

While we’re on the topic of single-bloom bouquets, this one is made up of the baby’s-breath plant (sometimes interchangeably described as its scientific genus name “gypsophila”). Compared to the previous bouquet of peonies, we felt as if this one spoke a completely different language. What are your thoughts?

But if you’re feeling a bit tight and smushed from all the subtlety we’ve been advocating, know that it’s also okay to take things a (small) step further and mix in a single bold color. For the winter season we recommend burgundy or wine for the serious “pop” effect in your otherwise classic white bouquet!
Let your blooms inspire a palette for the rest of the visuals for your celebration! We would love to work with you to create your stationary aesthetic!
