HUNTED: { Wedding Flowers – Sunflowers }

HUNTED: { Wedding Flowers – Sunflowers }

I’ve heard a couple question whether sunflowers are appropriate wedding flowers. In case of doubt the answer is yes, yes, 100% yes.

Sunflowers add glorious brightness to any occasion. Just looking at them makes you want to smile. In the wedding world they’re suitable for a variety of wedding styles, from a beach wedding to a bohemian do, to a garden party, to a festival vibe.

Seasonally sunflowers coincide with the key wedding months of July – October. Winter brides I’m afraid this isn’t your bouquet of choice.

Inspiration for how to weave sunflowers into your day is hunted below. What a joyful hunt to do.

Bridal Bouquets

When it comes to bridal bouquet ideas, sunflowers make your life easy as there’s little you need to add to them. That said, there are surprising colour combinations that you may also want to consider.

Wedding Ideas Sunflower Bridal Bouquet

Clockwise from Top Left : 

1. Sunflower bouquet with berries. Here a few berries have been weaved into the bouquet. Other than this the bright blooms have been left to do the talking themselves.

2. Autumn Sunflower Bouquet // Pinterest If you’re an Autumn Bride might want to bring in other colour tones that reduce the “summeriness” of the sunflowers. Rich oranges and reds with berries alters the look to one that’s harvest-ready.

3. Sunflower bouquet with Blue Wildflowers // Marriage Bouquets If you want a softer, less traditional combination add some wildflowers into the bouquet in shades of blue and white.

When it comes to Bridesmaids dresses, sunflowers leave a wide array of colour options open.

1. Coral Bridesmaids with Sunflowers // Flower Opera The bright yellow flowers fit tonally with bright dress colours, such as coral.

2. Grey Bridesmaids with Sunflowers // Aislinn Events Sunflowers are also able to give lift to neutral dress shades. Grey is an excellent complement to yellow.
