Wedding Trend Alert – Wild Bouquets

written by


Wild bouquets are taking the flower world by storm, and I am welcoming this trend with open arms! Drawing inspiration from overgrown gardens, wild bouquets are oversized, unstructured, and organically asymmetrical. Cascading foliage and wandering blooms mimic the way that they would grow in nature. These bouquets appear effortlessly arranged, as if they have been picked from the garden just seconds before walking down the aisle. This style of bouquet can lend itself to any colour palette, but works particularly well with antique or moody tones like deep burgundy, muted champagne, and dusky pink. Complete the look with jagged stems and flowing lengths of silk ribbon.
These overgrown bouquets are perfect not just for the free-spirited bohemian bride, but for anyone wanting to steer away from the traditional perfectly rounded bouquet. Wild bouquets can also give you more bang for your buck than a tight rounded bouquet, because with loosely arranged flowers spread out with foliage, less stems are needed to achieve a big and beautiful look! Talk to your florist about seasonal blooms in your colour palette, naturally trailing foliages, and unexpected elements such as a stem of cymbidium orchids, a small grouping of feathers, or an oversized air plant.
To carry this wild and natural look into the reception, style the tables with tarnished gold urns filled with unstructured arrangements of flowers and wandering foliage. Alternatively, opt for garlands of wild and messy mixed foliages that run the length of long wooden tables, or a show stopping oversized floral chandelier with long tendrils of trailing foliage. Use a myriad of taper candles to complete the look.
