2. Go Local: Local (and eco-friendly) plants like succulents add texture and look oh-so cute at any wedding. They’re perfect for an outdoor celebration and can even be saved and replanted afterwards. (via Love ‘n’ Fresh Flowers)
3. Statement Flower: A large flower keeps the look chic and elegant. Just choose the statement flower of your choice and surround it with florets and greens. It’s as simple as that! (via Rebecca Amber Photography)
5. Decorate With Fragrant Herbs: Simple colors from fresh rosemary sprigs make a stunning homemade arrangement that smells wonderful. Complement it with lavender blossoms for a pop of purple and you’re all set. (via Once Wed)
6. Touch of Baby’s Breath: Baby’s breath is a classic wedding flower that exudes a clean, soft vibe. While you can use fresh or dried baby’s breath to make a simple boutonniere, fresh is ideal for a spring wedding. Bonus: It’s also super affordable. (via Intimate Weddings)
8. Put a Feather on It: Looking for a boho-floral vibe? Adding a colorful feather to the bouquet will help you get there. You can keep the hues cool or mix it up with a bright feather to complement your color scheme. (via The Sunflower Stand)
10. Loosen Up Your Buttons: Looking for a more muted spring or summer palette? Use dried flowers and herbs instead. Pair ’em with antique wooden buttons to add country flair and charm to your big day. (via The Sunflower Stand)
13. Budget-Friendly Flowers: Channel your inner field-frolicking child by adding some mini daisies to the mix. Not only will they keep your budget in check, they’ll also look great with other yellows and oranges. Bonus points if you craft yourself an old-school daisy flower crown to match.
