Big, bold florals have always been a popular choice for brides looking to make a statement on their wedding day. They add color, create a romantic aesthetic, and generally look beautiful! However, in recent years a new trend has emerged that’s even bigger and bolder: using oversized blossoms in your bouquet! If you want to use this trend on your wedding day, here are a few flowers you can start with.
A member of the Asteraceae family, dahlias are a cousin to flowers like the daisy and the chrysanthemum. However this flower boasts one very unique feature — it can get huge! Adding a giant dahlia (also called a dinnerplate dahlia due to its size) to your bouquet is a great way to get a huge burst of color from one single blossom.
Peonies are already a popular flower among brides-to-be. They’re delicate and sweet, and they come in gorgeous shades of pink (perfect for a bride with a red, pink, or coral color palette). But if you really want to wow your guests as you walk down the aisle, you can up your peony game with a stunning pink giant!
This is a great bouquet option for an earthy bride with an all-natural theme. An oversized succulent surrounded by baby’s-breath makes an understated, yet elegant bouquet. Best of all, succulents come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, which means the possibilities are endless! You and your florist can create a unique arrangement that perfectly suits your needs.
Here is a flower for the bride who really wants to bring out the big guns. The king protea is a massive flower with a remarkable-looking blossom you won’t soon forget. The sharp, angular look of the petals combined with the delicate white and pink color scheme makes it a great choice for anyone looking for a sweet arrangement with just a little edginess. In fact, this unique flower could work as the whole bouquet; just tie a ribbon around the stem and you’ll be good to go!
