If you're into the symbolic nature of flowers, you can't go wrong with including ferns in your wedding bouquet. Ferns represent everything from fidelity and eternal faithfulness to reverie, magic, and sincerity—it doesn't get more wedding appropriate than that. Even if you don't care quite so much about the symbolism, there's no denying that these pretty plants are especially wedding-worthy. Often used as an accent with more common wedding flowers (think peonies, garden roses, and anemones), ferns add a timeless beauty to any arrangement.

Whether you consider yourself a classic or modern bride, there's a type of fern that works with your arrangement and style. While there are countless varieties native to different areas, you can expect to find everything from tight feather-like leaves to looser, trailing shapes from this plant family. Ready to see how you can work ferns into your wedding bouquet? Here, you'll find plenty of fern bouquets done right—including this one from Bloomwell & Co.
