Bridal Bouquets: Design, Style, and Color
Updated: May 13
The bride's bouquet is arguably the second most important part of her outfit (the top is the wedding dress, of course!). Bouquets can be based on themes like rustic, modern, tropical, or traditional. Remember, that many flowers are seasonal. If you fall in love with a certain bouquet or flower, ask us about the availability! All the bouquets in the photos below have been made by Penny of Charleston Elopements.
The bridal bouquet is standard in all our elopement packages! You have the option of changing the size of the bouquet to either Small (6-8 inch diameter), Medium (8-10 inch diameter), or Large (14-16 inch diameter).
You will have choice of color and accent color! However, flowers are natural, and some colors can be different from the exact one you may envision. The bouquets below are "coral" bouquet requests. You can see the many shades of pink/orange/coral.
We work with a wholesale florist to obtain the best and freshest flowers.
Flowers are ordered 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding for the best chance of receiving your flowers. We love photos of bouquets, and will use them as inspiration, however we cannot guarantee specific flowers.
We will do our best to obtain any requested flowers. We will honor any flower to be avoided, and stay within the colors you chose.
In the bouquet above the bride requested a single purple flower in memory of her grandmother.
Groom boutonniere is also part of most of our elopement packages! They are made of complimentary flowers to the bridal bouquet.
Flowers also have seasons. The most common flowers requested (Peony and Hydrangea) are only available in the Spring and Fall. Our Summers are too hot and they are either not available, or will wilt in the heat!! Here are bouquet examples by season:
At Charleston Elopements, we use any bouquet photos as inspiration! If you choose a bouquet with flowers that are out of season, we will notify you and offer similar flowers.
