Flower magazine editor in chief Margot Shaw says, “Weddings, like houses and gardens, are creations, and the most beautiful are brought to life by the combined tastes and talents of the designer and the designees, and, of course, always include a healthy dose of gorgeous flowers.” We returned to the pages of Flower to collect a gallery of bridal bouquets and delighted in what we found—dozens of floral creations to inspire every flower-lover and bride-to-be. Find classic and rustic forms, muted and bold colors, simple and sophisticated compositions, and a range of bridal bouquet designs from dramatic to playful.
