In life and design, the simplest ideas are oftentimes the best ideas. The same can ring true for wedding floral arrangements. Today’s blog post is all about the beauty of a simple, yet chic wedding bouquet. From roses to hydrangea, peonies to lilies, there are so many different flowers to choose from. So, where to start? First, think of your color palette. That might seem like a obvious first step but consider choosing only one of your colors to highlight in your bouquet to keep things simple and clean. Another thing to consider is size, how big do you want your bouquet to be? Next, shape. Are you the kind of boho bride who likes a loose, hand gathered arrangement, or do you prefer structure? Any way you go, there are so many ways to go simple and chic with your wedding bouquet! Below are our top picks – enjoy!
Simple color palette
We love the idea of picking one color, be it purple, pink, yellow, white or green, and creating a bouquet from its hues. Choose one or two of your wedding colors and pick varying tones from the same color palette to create a bouquet that has depth, but also doesn’t distract from your dress or decor.
Blush is quickly becoming a classic for weddings. Traditional roses, pink peonies, and lovely ranunculus flowers are making a case for this pretty floral arrangement. Add a couple eucalyptus stems for some movement.
Perfect for a winter or desert wedding, this rich bouquet makes the most of the season with luscious succulents and tones of burgundy and green. Tie with a simple ribbon for a loose hand arranged bouquet.
Lilacs are great for a number of reasons. They’re super fragrant and come in a variety of colors. But our favorite is the classic purple shade for a chic arrangement. Tie with strings of natural fibers or burlap with a little greenery for a bouquet perfect for a rustic wedding.
Baby’s breath is a classic wedding flower and has been for a very long time. If you want to keep things traditional, add this simple flower to a bouquet of pink roses for a classic style bouquet.
We’re fools in love for peonies any time of year but for weddings, it continues to make our favorites list of the chicest bouquets around. Choose different varieties of peonies for more texture and volume. You can also keep all the peonies in the same color tones or go with pastels for a cohesive look.
Sometimes the most chic flower arrangement doesn’t contain many flowers at all. We love the look of this all calla lily bouquet. It’s simple, it’s chic, and when paired with a gorgeous dress, it’s a match made in heaven!
South African protea
A bouquet centered around a South African protea is one of our favorite trends of the moment. We love how this bride wrapped hers to create a wild flower like effect for her big day. Let the protea take centerstage in this arrangement and make sure your other flowers don’t overwhelm this very boho flower.
For a more bohemian look, we love this simple white display, which you can create yourself. If you want to keep the look ultra clean, don’t add any pieces of green and stick with one type of flower in one color.
A jewel toned arrangement
Jewel tones have been on trend for a couple seasons now and what better way to incorporate this trend than through your wedding bouquet! We’re really crushing on this bouquet filled with deep burgundy tones mixed with soft greens and white and accented by lush pinks.
