Why I LOVE Unique Floral Arrangements (and You Should, Too!)

In a single year, almost 2 million couples exchange vows in the United States alone (crazy, right?). With so many weddings taking place, it can be difficult to tell your story in a way that stands out.

When it comes to planning a one-of-a-kind wedding, some couples underestimate the impact that floral arrangements can have. From your dazzling bouquet to the ceremony arch, distinct florals can create a memorable event.

If you’re on the fence about the type of florals you want to use on your big day, you’ll definitely want to hear what I’ve learned as a wedding pro. Here are the very best ways to feature unique floral arrangements in your wedding!

Show Off Your Personality

In all the hustle and bustle of your wedding day, it can be so easy to lose yourself in the noise. Unique florals can be a great way to celebrate your personality and help bring you back into the moment.

Whether you two have a retro, psychedelic vibe or prefer a minimalist, intimate approach, a dedicated florist can build an arrangement that suits you perfectly. With one look at your custom-made wedding bouquet, you’ll have the confidence you need to face the day with grace.

While your wedding day may not be Hollywood-perfect, one of the most important things you can do is stay true to yourself. Whether that’s wild and romantic or cozy and sweet, your floral arrangements should reflect you, flawlessly.

Add a Pop of Color

If you’ve been following recent wedding trends, you’ll see that color is making a fabulous comeback! Gone are the days of muted palettes and greige ceremonies; lately, couples have been trading these out for something vibrant, eye-catching, and absolutely stunning.

If you want to add some life to your romantic celebration, we highly recommend doing so via floral arrangements. Whether you go with wildflowers or brightly-colored roses, this is one trend that we’re here for.

For couples planning a black-tie wedding, you may want to consider adding an accent color to your theme. A touch of color here and there will complement your elegant event perfectly.

Highlight Your Theme

When it comes to designing your dream wedding, you want to come up with a theme that feels connected and cohesive. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when choosing wedding flowers that tie into your overall aesthetic.

If you’re planning a unique theme for your wedding, such as boho chic or punk rock, there are plenty of specialized florals that can capture your vibe.

For couples who love to push the envelope, there are endless opportunities to use florals to your advantage. Whatever your theme looks like, there’s a lavish arrangement out there that will make your vision complete.

Get Sentimental

As a wedding photographer, I love hearing my clients gush over all the little details of their love stories. After all, it’s the sweet, simple moments of your relationship that you want to remember forever.

Try utilizing the type of flowers that he first gifted to you, or the flowers you couldn’t help but notice during a romantic walk in the park. If you can find a way to incorporate part of your story in the floral arrangements, they’ll only add to the beauty and emotion of the big day.

Regarding sentimentality, you can also choose to honor important figures in your life. Some couples even reference their parents’ wedding florals or celebrate their loved one’s favorite flowers.

Unleash Your Artistic Side

If you two are going for a more artistic, editorial theme (yes, please!), unique florals are the only option! A stand-out floral arrangement can be the difference between stale imagery and a stylistic masterpiece.

Bespoke florals are ideal for couples planning their wedding on an epic scale. Whether you’re getting married on a breathtaking mountaintop or a grand indoor venue, adding the right flowers can take your event to the next level.

Artistic floral arrangements go beyond trends and gimmicks, using creativity to deliver something fresh and exciting. Don’t be surprised when your romantic event ends up on the front page of every wedding publication!
