Unique Wedding Bouquets

Erich McVey

Your wedding ceremony celebrates your special, one-of-a-kind relationship, because there's no love out there quite like yours. Spread that sentiment throughout your wedding décor, from the venue to the vows and everything in between. And while you're incorporating personality and personal taste into every aspect of your special day, don't forget the detail you (literally) hold closest to your heart. Your wedding bouquet should be many things: beautiful, on-theme, and picture-ready. But ultimately, and most importantly, it should also be incredibly you. So step outside the box and feel free to get creative. Alternative colors, styles, and blooms are all it takes to bring an average arrangement to extraordinary. Whether you're nontraditional or just seeking something new, these bouquets from real weddings are sure to inspire.

This muted and rustic Sarah Winward bouquet cascades not down, but out. And the flower list—including peonies, ranunculus, clematis recta, foxglove, acacia, cafe latte roses, and black elderberry foliage—is anything but ordinary, especially when tied with long, draping ribbons.
