Each Floral Designer has been highly recommended by real brides via Australia's largest wedding review platform, ABIA!

Alrighties, let's get started and have a look at all the wedding bouquet ideas you will love, from rose bouquets, simply bouquets, rustic bouquets to big, bright & beautiful bouquets!
The Rose Bouquet
When you're considering roses, please don't refer to The Bachelor's one red-rose! Roses come in so many different colours and sizes, they will be hard to resist including them in your bridal bouquet. A popular choice for the modern wedding bouquet, is the mixture of large & fluffy dusty pink & white roses!
Colours: Red, Light Pink, Dusty Pink, Yellow, Orange and Purple
Peonie bouquets are definitely one of the most popular choices for a bride-to-be. Everyone adores them (um, how could you not), but they are one of the more expensive flowers out there. They are so big and so fluffy, with so many colours to choose from, that they simply bring joy to all our wedding-obsessed faces!
Ask your local wedding florist for a quote and I'm sure they will be able to work the peony in around your budget.
Popular Colours: White, Pink, Blush & Red
Season in Australia: October to December
Orchids Floral Bouquets
The phalaenopsis orchid is one of the most beautiful flowers you will find amongst weddings. They work for large wedding bouquets, but can be so effective with smalle bouquets like the below. The phalaenopsis orchid come on many different colours and are simply stunning!
Popular Colours: White, Pink, Purple, Yellow and Orange
Native Wedding Flowers
See this big beautiful feature flower, she's called the "King Proteas", and they're often confused for an Australian native flower, but they are originally from South Africa. Nevertheless, they are gorgeous and a show-stopper, available in both pink and white.
Small Wedding Bouquets
Small floral bouquets (also known as a posy bouquet) generally have a few stems of flowers, but can be so effective! You can still show a multitude of beautiful colours with a variety of flowers, but you won't be left with a dead arm carrying a super heavy wedding bouquet all day!
A posy bouquet is a small bouquet, but more the classic style and round in shape. The stems are generally cut to the same length and little to no foliage at all. It's for the bride who is set on a romantic and traditional style, which we of course adore!
Foliage Wedding Bouquets
The colour green has such a calming feel, so we don't blame you for failing in love with the Foliage Wedding Bouquets! It can often be a less expensive option too!
This has become a really popular option when selecting your wedding bouquet. It's generally a flower bouquet that isn't symmetrical, and a little bit lop-sided, but in the most beautiful way! It generally a mix of foliage of fresh flowers, giving your local wedding florist, more options for some serious floral-art!
If you are obsessed with flowers and you want your wedding bouquet to be a serious feature at your wedding, then you can't go past the cascading bouquet that naturally sits like a waterfall. The cascading style tend to be a larger wedding bouquet, and combines a range of foliage and big beautiful blooms, like the orchid.
Long Stem Bouquets
Wedding bouquets with the long stem are definitely making a mark in wedding-land! Definitely a popular option for the modern bride and particularly featured with roses.
Colourful Bridal Bouquets
For the brides who want a pop of colour as they walk down the aisle, we are seeing many different hues, whether bright or baby colours, plus all sorts of textures! Talk to your local wedding florist about which colourful flowers are in season at the time of your wedding day. Check out the glitter in the first photo below! Swoon!
White Flowers with Greenery
This type of bouquet suits any wedding, whether it is classic, modern, boho, luxury, we see this colour combination in all sorts of wedding bouquets and it works!

You could incorporate the tropical palms in to your ceremony and reception styling as well, it will certainly have hat wow factory!

White is of course the more traditional colour at a wedding, however your options are endless whether you're hoping for a classic wedding or a modern wedding. Be sure to speak with your Floral Designer as they will have the right information on which white flowers go together in terms of textures.
Boho Rustic Wedding Bouquet
Boho and Rustic Wedding Bouquets tend to have a variety of textures, are multi-coloured, and are generally not too symmetrical. Your local wedding florist will include all sorts of foliage to complement your favourite flowers. They're perfect for couples who are looking for a boho or country styled wedding.

Pink Wedding Bouquets
Similar to white, there are endless options for pink wedding flowers. From peonies, to orchids and alliums (look like little pom poms). Pink bouquets tend to have a variety of textures and shades, but our personal favourite is always featuring a big beautiful peony with some orchids.
