Flower Bouquet Ideas For Your Wedding

Samples of different types of wedding bouquets

Flowers are a mainstay of most weddings, and they’re so much more than just centerpieces. They can be used to decorate the aisle, create a romantic archway, or dress up a photo booth. You can even turn them into jewelry or other accessories. Here are some flower bouquet ideas that will make your wedding spectacular.


Hydrangeas are among the most popular flowers for weddings and for a good reason. The hydrangea’s full, round shape symbolizes gratitude and heartfelt emotions. Because of their size, many brides choose to use them as the base of their bouquet and then add in other flowers. The lush flower has a natural elegance that makes it perfect for any wedding flower arrangement.

Roses are a classic wedding flower choice, and they are undoubtedly lovely. But with so many other options available, you may be tempted to stray away from this traditional bouquet ingredient. At Essex Florist, we love the fresh, natural look of a rosebud bouquet. The soft pink and white colors are very romantic, and it’s an easy way to incorporate roses into your wedding day without having to use large blooms.

Another plus? Rosebuds can be pretty inexpensive, so this is an option worth considering if you have a tight budget but still want unique wedding flower arrangements.


In Russia, red tulips symbolize passion and romantic love. It is no wonder then that these blooms make great wedding flower arrangements. That said, these flowers aren’t as readily available during certain times of the year, so make sure you plan your wedding date accordingly.

If you want to add color without spending too much money on your wedding flowers, carnations are an excellent option. Carnations are available in almost every color imaginable. They’re also affordable enough to have them shipped from overseas if you need an exotic variety that’s not readily available locally. You can order them in bulk from a wholesaler for lower prices than from regular florists.
