46 Color And Design Choices For Wedding Flowers And Bouquets

I thought it would be fun and helpful to group a selection of different styles of wedding flowers and bouquets into color pallets so you could get some inspiring ideas.

Most people have a color in mind when they begin their search for floral designs, but they don’t know the flower names or the colors they come in.  Almost all of the choices used in wedding flowers have been included below.

The bouquets are hand tied, arm bouquets, tussy mussy, round , and a few cascade or tear drop styles because those are the most popular choices used today.  Of course the colors and combinations can be used in any style you wish so be creative.  All of the designs are gorgeous as they are or take the ideas you like from several designs to create your own unique bouquet.


These flowers are so lovely in any design, but a few ideas include:

1) All white roses in a hand tied bouquet, your choice of ribbon in any color

2) White calla lilies in an arm bouquet with white tulips cascading over the arm and mixed in with the calla lilies.  Wrap long stems with wide white satin ribbon and secure with pearl corsage pins.

3) A silver tussy mussy with lily of the valley.  Include a few of the slender flower leaves

4) Casablanca lilies formed into a round hand tied bouquet.  These are big and luscious and very fragrant!

5) Calla lilies grouped together to form a round hand tied bouquet.  Make it as small or large as you like.

6) All white peonies, hand tied with a satin ribbon.  Attach charms with photos or verses – so romantic!

7) Hydrangea pomander with silk organza ribbon.  Unique and different.


1) Light pink, medium pink, and dark pink peonies.  Form into a large hand tied bouquet.  Wrap stems in a wide pink satin ribbon and secure with pearl corsage pins.  My favorite!

2) Tussy mussy with three shades of pink sweet pea.  Add in a few lily of the valley with leaves.

3) Light and medium pink open roses.  Use in any design for an awesome bouquet.

4) Pink tulips, roses, lisianthus in a hand tied bouquet

5) Arm bouquet with a variety of pink roses.  Include white roses with pink edges, light pink roses

and medium pink roses.  Make the bouquet full and add smaller roses to fill in around toward the bottom of the larger roses.  Keep the stems shorter than a traditional arm bouquet.

6) Pink anemonies in a tussy mussy or hand tied bouquet

7) A beidemiere is a round design with concentric circles of different flowers.  A beautiful pink palette would be white ranunculus to form the center followed with dark pink roses.  Add a ring of white stephanotis followed by light pink open roses.  Either dark pink, cream, or white roses could form the last circle.  Galax leaves or lambs ear would be beautiful to finish off the bouquet.
