I can just imagine the sound of brides all around Australia squealing in delight when these breathtaking wedding bouquets were delivered to their door on their special day!  The florists – sorry, floral designers – who created these gorgeous creations showcase a great diverse range of flowers, colours, textures, sizes and shapes.  Individually, they are just so lovely to look at and I’m sure, as a bride, equally lovely to carry.

If you are looking for inspiration for your own bridal bouquet, you have come to the right place.  Get ready to see 11 breathtaking wedding bouquet entries in the Flowers to Carry category from our RockStar Florists Competition.

Pretty Posies

They look simple and sweet, but a lot of love, time and care has gone into these pretty posies.  In this posy Catherine from Flowers at Haberfield, NSW, combined roses, ranunculi, blue gum and wax flower.  In this gorgeous image, I love how the sun highlights the heavenly pink hydrangea.

Blue gum is very on-trend at the moment. I am seeing it being used in many floral designs lately.  This is great to see, as being native to Australia it can naturally hold up well in our warmer wedding weather conditions.  Often wedding trends follow what is happening overseas but I’m so glad our florists are creating striking displays mixing hardy foliage, flowers, and textures with the more popular pretties.  Stacey from Poppy Lane Flowers By Design, QLD, adds a pop of colour to this bouquet with purple lisianthus, red David Austin roses and pink stocks.

Here again, we have a blue gum foliage base, but this time Vicky from The Turquoise Rose, SA, has emphasised the blue and grey tones of the foliage by including sea holly and succulents.  The apricot roses and orange ranunculi add a contrasting pop of colour, while the white freesias break up the design and the flowing Queen Anne’s Lace adds texture and interest.

From pretty posies to the other end of the size scale, here are some big and beautiful bouquets that you may need two hands to carry!  Traditionally I was taught when studying floristry that a wedding bouquet should never overwhelm the brides dress.  I can’t say that I totally agree with that and I certainly broke the rules on my own wedding day.  My wedding bouquet was so big (and heavy) that in some photos all you can see is the flowers.  Naturally, being a flower lover, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!  I am loving this whimsical Floral Design by Emily from Fleur et Empreinte – Flower & Print, VIC, of pale pink roses, blushing bride, flannel flower, astilbe, lilac, poppies and a hero king protea.

Emma from Echo and Indigo, QLD, created a large bouquet design using light blue delphinium, white dahlias, hydrangea in white and a beautiful muted green tone, apricot roses, and pale pink tulips.  A very pleasing soft colour palette finished with textured ribbon.

Check out this insanely gorgeous design by Prue from Prue Swain Orange Flowers, NSW.  I love the groupings in this large bouquet that surround the hero huge pink waratah.  All the flowers that surround, including sea holly, ruffled parrot tulips, andromeda, blushing bride, and ranunculi are unique in themselves and clustering them adds great texture to the design.  The colour palette balances and brings the look together.

Garden Inspired

Garden inspired bouquets are hugely popular, and a few of the ones that caught my eye in this years’ competition have the most unique flower combinations.  I adore the feathery effect created here by Nicole from Simply Stems Boutique Florist, VIC, as well as the pops of hot pink colour.

This colour palette by Beth from Twig, SA, is harmonious with some stunning examples of apricot David Austin roses and dahlias.  Depth is also added using a burgundy dahlia, and the white cosmos daisy lightens and highlights.  Again, amazing texture and a fantastic combination of flowers makes the bouquet just so pleasing to the eye.

This unique combination of blooms by Agnieszka from Angie’s Floral Design, QLD, consists of winter hellebores and the yellow native flower with curls and loops is a grevillea called ‘Moonlight’ from the protea family.  For brides who are looking for something different in their bouquet, look to natives as they are long lasting and often unique looking.

Wild and Care Free

Alena from Gentle Flowers shows us a wild and free-flowing bridal bouquet of pink jasmine with groupings of green goddess lilies, roses, ranunculi, cymbidium orchids, and sweet peas.  The long hanging ribbons are a lovely way to finish and complement the design.

The structure of this bouquet by Jo from Naturelle, QLD, is just divine.  Upon a lush magnolia foliage base mixed with feathers, branches and vines, are pink and yellow proteas, pink cymbidium orchids, a grouping of latte roses, and a feature brown succulent.  I love the natural rope that flows from behind the bouquet also.  A unique and special design, what a lucky bride!

What I loved most about all these amazing bouquet designs from all around Australia was the unique combinations of flowers, colours and textures.  It shows that there are amazing floral designers out there who are always trying new things and aren’t we the lucky ones who get to see it all!
