Bridal Bouquets: 2018 Real Weddings

The bridal bouquet is one of my favorite details at a wedding. It should be a stunning work of art, as it will be in almost all of your photos. You should consider not only the colors and flower types, but also the size, shape and texture the bouquet.

Don’t miss my round up of real 2018 wedding cakes , 2018 real wedding shoes, or my statistical look at all my 2018 real weddings.

You can also check out 2017 bridal bouquets, 2016 bridal bouquets and 2015 bridal bouquets, if you really want to binge on some pretty flowers.

This boho beauty was my favorite of the year. Give me all the King Protea. I was thrilled with the shape and size G went with as well.

Purple Bridal Bouquets

Purple continues to be a very popular color for bridal bouquets. You will see purple make an appearance later in the “colorful bouquets” section. I love how different these two bouquets are, despite being similar in color palette. Again, size of blooms, shape of the bouquet and the texture can make all the difference.

Colorful Bridal Bouquets

I love colorful flowers – they make everyone at weddings smile. Here we have, from top to bottom, a sexy and moody bouquet, a bright and cheerful bouquet and a cool and chic bouquet with a wide range of colors. Each perfectly suited the bride, I think.

Pink Bridal Bouquets

Pink is on it’s way out – JUST KIDDING. The color pink will always be classic – from blush and bashful to bright fuschia, you see it all here.

When the wedding features two grooms and no brides, I work closely with the floral designer to make sure their boutonnieres are thoughtful, mini works of art.
