Wildflower wedding bouquets

Obviously, wildflower bouquets are nothing new. In fact, brides have carried posies of wildflowers for centuries. But, over the last few years, with the trend for outsize, undone bouquets and our increasing interest seasonal blooms, wildflowers are everywhere.

Perfect for outdoor weddings, wildflowers really complement rustic, boho and natural weddings. These designs are also more adaptable than you might think – tied with string, they’re simple and gorgeous but add trailing silk ribbons and your bouquet becomes a work of art.

If you’re looking for a structured or tightly packed bouquet, then wildflowers might not be your best choice. On the other hand, if you’d like a less structured style that lets you also incorporate grasses, herbs and other accessories, these definitely are the bouquets for you.

Tips for wildflower bouquets

When you’re thinking about your wildflower wedding bouquet, then there are a few things to remember:

  • The wildflower bouquets that you see on Pinterest might come from weddings outside the UK. This means that the flowers could well be difficult to obtain here.
  • Speak to your florist as soon as possible and ask for details of blooms that will be available on your wedding date.
  • If sustainability is important to you, check the provenance of your flowers – who supplies your florist?
  • Think about your style – for a romantic look, soft, big flowers look wonderful whereas lots of foliage in your bouquet works well with a rustic look.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment. Bouquets also look fantastic with feathers, fruits, grasses and herbs too.

Seasonal wildflower-inspired bouquets

Of course, it’s hard to source British grown wildflowers at certain times of year so you need to get creative here. You can still carry a wedding bouquet that has a wildflower look to it even if the blooms themselves aren’t strictly wildflowers. Taking your inspiration from the seasons always works for woodland weddings and we can’t wait to see your flowers on the big day!
