Sunflowers are the perfect summer flower: They're large like their namesake, are beautifully bright, and, perhaps best of all, are in season during the warmer months. Why wouldn't you want to add them to your wedding bouquet? These blooms bring a pretty dose of color to any summer spray—their yellow hue is exactly why you don't need a ton of sunflower stems to make an impact.

But don't be deterred by their vibrant color. Although sunflowers are an unexpected bloom to incorporate into your wedding-day arrangement, they still pair well with flowers of any shape, size, and colorway. This bouquet by Tobey Nelson proves just that. The pros mixed both large and small sunflowers with sizable dahlias and tiny blue and purple buds. The result? A unique display that still felt understated.

Whether you want to use sunflowers in a small way or throughout your entire bouquet, the following options show you all the many ways you can use this cheery bloom in your arrangement. You'll also discover a look that suits just about any wedding type. For a modern ceremony, take note from one bride, who paired the flower with succulents. Throwing a rustic-themed event? You may want to bookmark one bouquet with pinecones. However you choose to utilize this sunny bloom, it's guaranteed to brighten up your nuptials even more. Need more proof?
