One floral trend that we absolutely love is the large unstructured bouquet. It’s the most popular wedding bouquet arrangement among brides today, and this style has no bounds. Foliage and flowers with differing stem lengths are used to create a very relaxed bouquet which is far less formal and much more organic than say a more structured posy style.
There are no limits to the types of flowers and foliage used in this style of bouquet, which is why it is such a great choice for brides who want to put their own stamp on their wedding flowers, whether that be a country hedgerow style bouquet, similar to the one above, or a luxe and loose bouquet incorporating statement blooms. This type of bouquet suits a bride who wants to step away from tradition and convention and is looking for something bold, but altogether more relaxed.
Midsummer Night’s Dream Themed Bouquet & Floral Crown
We absolutely adore everything about this bouquet and it has an mid summer, ethereal quality to it, being made up of a base of foliage and large statement blooms incorporated within.
The natural form and structure of each flower stem gives it so much movement. They have been deliberately left long and natural, forming trailing tendrils and adding a light as a feather softness.
The matching flower crown looks so beautiful, capturing all the delights of a midsummer’s garden. Just gorgeous.
Straight From the Growing Patch
They specialise in growing fresh, fragrant, seasonal cut flowers for weddings and events, supplying both local florists and the local community. And just look how fresh and fabulous this stunning bouquet looks. We’d bet anything that it also smells divine, as locally grown blooms are renowned for their delightful scent.
In the Pink
Pink can be perfectly pretty as in this stunning loosely crafted, hand tied bouquet below. Just look how those magnificent peonies give a focal point, whilst the roses and sweet peas will provide an intoxicating scent and again, the foliage softens the arrangement.
Staying with a pink palette, but for the bride who is looking for a stronger much more dramatic look, this arrangement by Jennifer Pinder with it’s abundance of lilac stems would look truly amazing in a grand country house wedding setting.
The beauty of big, bold unstructured bouquets, is that they can take different forms and shapes, according to how your bouquet is made up and just how much free form foliage is added to the mix. These two delightful peach bouquets illustrate this perfectly.
First up, a fabulous rambling rose bouquet with springs of delicate foliage giving it an informal yet elegant vibe.
This peach bouquet from the Rose Shed has a tighter structure, but as above, the foliage softens the shape and gives another dimension, adding depth and drawing you into the centre of the arrangement and those ‘wow’ peonies.
Flowers From The Forest
And finally, just take a look at this ravishing bouquet by Katherine Craft at Florist in the Forest. Katherine is a creative, enthusiastic florist who is passionate about floral design, flowers and plants. She has her own cutting garden growing a variety of annuals, perennials, and shrubs for use in her work during the summer months.
With it’s vibrant colours and relaxed informal style this bouquet is perfect for any bride who wants to express her individuality and make a bold and beautiful colour pop style statement.
