30 Monochromatic Wedding Bouquets

Sticking to one color for your bridal bouquet doesn't mean it'll be one-note. In fact, it could mean your flowers make even more of a statement.

By definition, monochromatic means made of only one color or hue. In the world of weddings, that could mean one incredibly chic color palette. Whether you're considering a monochromatic color scheme for your ceremony and reception, single-colored stationery, or—our favorite—a monochrome wedding bouquet, know that sticking to just one shade doesn't mean you're creating a look that's one-note. Adding depth or airiness without adding other colors is easy enough to accomplish with most colors in the spectrum: You can play up your chosen color by adding in neighboring hues or going either slightly lighter or darker.

If you're not sold on the idea of an entirely monochromatic celebration, start with just your personal flowers. Monochromatic bouquets are chic, trendy, and are sure to draw the eye in. Whether you base your blooms off of your wedding's overall color scheme or the common shades that your favorite flowers are available in, we firmly believe that a single-toned bouquet is always a good idea. With so many incredible blooms to choose from, you can go with a single type—say, all garden roses—or mix it up with a slew of nature's finest offerings in the same shade. This David Stark bouquet is a stunning example. The pro used white and ivory roses, dinner-plate dahlias, miniature ball-dahlias, clematis, campanula, and ranunculus. Although different, each of the warm whites played beautifully with the rest of the blooms.

You might not think of green as a popular color for a bridal bouquet, but after seeing this one by Molly Ryan Floral you'll probably think twice. Lady's slipper orchids, hellebores, and ferns showcased texture and style in this single-hued arrangement.

With you work with a color like yellow, the gradient—from the palest buttery tone to a vibrant goldenrod—is so beautiful that it deserves to be celebrated. That's exactly what Sweet Woodruff did here.

A variety of roses in varying shades of peach made this bouquet by Poppy's Petalworks a true beauty. If you like the idea of using just one type of flower (in addition to just one color), try incorporating several sizes to achieve a unique mix.

This bouquet by Earth Blossoms Floral Design shows that going dark can still be dreamy and pretty. Mostly crimson in color, this arrangement celebrates the darker shades of the color spectrum. Its mix of flower shapes makes it even more graphic.

If you're showcasing a wide spectrum within the same color family—like this bouquet by Petals by the Shore, which included a variety of different purple tones—spread them out in a wide, wild arrangement.

All White, All Right

White bouquets are perhaps the most classic choice for a bride, and with this creation by Kelly Lenard, we understand why. Add texture with a mix of flower sizes and petal style. This combination included Veronica, sweet pea, and roses.

You're Golden

Sotiris Tsakanikas

Having a fall wedding? Or perhaps you're just a fan of warm earth tones? Then consider a petite bouquet, like this one by Betty Flowers, packed with warm ivory hydrangea and light gold leaves. The petals and leaves play well together and feel like they were meant to be united.

Greenery Only

One way to go monochromatic? Only use greenery. Teresa Sena gathered native ferns in this flower-free bridal bouquet.

A Plant Bouquet

Christy Cassano-Meyer

Another approach to an all-green bouquet is one made up of air plants (also known as tillandsia). Solabee Flowers designed this non-traditional bouquet and we love how it pops against the bride's lace dress.

Lovely in Lilac

Lilac naturally fluctuates in color, but because of its tiny petals and the way it's clustered, a bouquet of the purple flower is anything but boring.

Only Orchids

Corbin Gurkin

Matthew Robbins only used one flower in this bride's clutch—a phalaenopsis orchid—and one color. "[The bride] wanted something bold and cascading but unfussy, so using only one variety of orchid kept the more dramatic and classic cascade very fresh and unique," says Matthew. Using one flower is a great way to ensure the monochromatic look truly comes through, and orchids are a fun and unique flower that can hold their own in a single-bloom clutch.

Orange You Glad

Keira Lemonis Photography

This bride worked with her friend Rachael Weiner of Stripes & Florals to create a bouquet with flowers that were entirely her favorite color. The clutch featured orange ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus, astrantia, and some sprigs of sage.

A Blue Solution

Harwell Photography

Blue florals can be tough to find, especially if you want an all-blue bouquet rather than splashes of the color. Hydrangeas are a great solution as they always look full and beautiful on their own, and come in a few different shades of blue. This bride chose to carry a bouquet of muted blue hydrangeas from Fishers Flowers.

White and Fluffy

Elizabeth Messina Photography

If you're going for a truly classic look, embrace the all-white look. "I loved having a monochrome bouquet," recalled this bride. "The feathers added for a touch of glamour and personality!" Her clutch from Stoneblossom Florals & Event Design was soft and elegant, featuring ranunculus, sweet pea, and feathers.
