An oversized bouquet has a dramatic look for the flower-loving bride. This is a stunning idea for outdoor and boho weddings with a focus on freshness and color. These bouquets can be your main floral arrangement if you’re having smaller floral pieces in the rest of your decor. We’ve picked out 10 gorgeous oversized wedding bouquets to inspire you.
1. Summer Pinks
Peonies, garden roses, decorative kale and green hydrangea are the perfect ingredients for a fresh and colorful summer bouquet. The large blooms make this DIY bouquet an easy one to construct and has such a lovely result.
This modern mix of flowers and foliage has a distinctive botanical feel. With touches of copper added to the palette, it creates an enviable mid-century look.
3. Peaches and Succulents
Succulents are a bouquet fave for a reason. They effortlessly enhance the other flowers in the bouquet and work well with neutral tones. Make the succulent a centerpiece by choosing one in a significant size.
4. Bold Brights
For double the impact, go for both color and size. Vibrant reds teamed with slightly burnt orange blooms are a great pairing for larger bouquets. Leaving the stems bare, also creates an informal look to balance everything out.
5. Pink Blossoms
A feminine, elegant and ethereal take on an oversized bouquet. As light pink is such a delicate color you can get away with having more blooms.
6. Clean and Simple
If you’re weary about going for such a bold piece, you can keep the bouquet clean with white and cream flowers. This will give you the opportunity to play around with the size of the bouquet without it being too overwhelming.
7. In the Wild
This lush bouquet with hints of lilac and peach has a wildness to it that goes hand in hand with a garden affair.
8. Deep tones
For fall weddings, deep and rich autumnal tones work especially well in larger arrangements. Blending these with trailing greenery finishes the piece.
9. Whimsical Paper
For a touch of whimsical charm, go for oversized single paper flowers. A quirky look that would fit in perfectly in a woodland wedding. Extra bonus points if you fancy a challenge and decide to make them yourself!
10. Cascading Bouquet
A cascading bouquet is a true statement piece, which gives you the opportunity to play around with proportions and the dimension of your bouquet. It is a lovely way to complement the silhouette of your dress.

Emerald green was the big color a couple of years ago, but we still love it today for its easy sophistication, and its all-season appeal. If you’re looking to add an element of elegance to your wedding day, you can’t go wrong with this jewel tone, and we’ve put together 5 emerald green color palettes to show you just how to use it.
When this color scheme showed up on the Burberry runway last year, it knocked our socks off (and still does)! It’s a glam alternative for your wedding day and a great palette if you’re opting to forego the flower arrangements in favor of less traditional centerpieces.
Emerald green single-handedly takes the muted hues of this color scheme from bleak to chic. We think it would make a great fall or winter wedding palette.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, pairing jewel tones is always a great idea!
There’s a lot going on in this color scheme, but it somehow all manages to work seamlessly together to create an incredibly modern and romantic palette. We can’t get enough of it!
Emerald green adds a touch of strong masculine energy to this otherwise soft and girly palette. The contrast makes this color scheme far more interesting than it would be without it.
Warm breezes, shimmering turquoise water and no wedding stress? Sound enticing?

A while back, we featured Schirin and Cris’s gorgeous $8,000 Main Street Manor wedding here on IW. The couple chose Main Street Manor because they wanted a drop, dead gorgeous wedding, without the price tag. An incredible honeymoon in Italy was at the top of the couple’s priority list, and an intimate wedding at Main Street Manor made it possible.
If you are like Schirin and Cris and you want a beautiful wedding without spending a bundle, Main Street Manor in Flemington, New Jersey might just be a perfect fit!

Planning a wedding is hard, planning it from afar is even more difficult. With much time spent researching and scouring the internet for vendors, Josh and Lori compare the experience of planning their wedding in Sonoma to organizing a mini-holiday for themselves and all of their guests. In the end, all their hard work and research paid off.
With a stunning vineyard venue and a romantic candlelit reception shared with 18 of their closest family and friends, the couple couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding day. A big thanks to Megan Clouse for sharing all the gorgeous photos with us!
Lori & Josh
Wedding Date: June 3, 2014
Number of Guests: 18
Wedding Ceremony Location: Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards – Outdoor Arbour
Wedding Reception Location: Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards – Wine Cave (It was the photos on their website of the wine cave that really sold us on the venue. We were instantly in love with that place.)
Why did you have an intimate wedding?
We both agreed that we wanted the day to be about us, and by keeping our wedding small we were able to not get so caught up in the details and lose sight of why we were doing it.
What are some of the challenges that you faced planning an intimate wedding?
It was more about planning a wedding at a place that we have never been before. The fact that we chose to have a smaller guest list made some of the planning easier. We spent so much time researching potential venues, hotels, caterers, photographers, etc. Thank God for the internet!
Was it difficult to pare down the guest list?
YES! We have a number of friends and family members that are close to us that we couldn’t invite.
What were the highlights of the ceremony?
The circle ceremony. We had all of our guests stand around us in a circle. We wrote a “blessing” where we went around the circle and each person said a line from it. The vows were also a highlight. We wrote our own vows and we didn’t share them with each other until the ceremony. And last, but not least, the venue! We had an amazing view overlooking the Carneros Valley, and the birds and butterflies even came out during the ceremony.
What were the highlights of the reception?
The dinner. We chose to sit everyone at one long king table and serve the dinner family style. The food and the cake were amazing. Again, the venue was amazing. We chose to decorate with a lot of candlelight which gave the wine cave a dim romantic glow. We loved listening to our family members give speeches. The dances were another highlight. Our first dance as a couple was really our first dance ever. We loved all of it.
What was the best thing about having an intimate wedding?
We were able to do things at the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception to make every guest feel welcomed and part of our day.
What advice do you have for couples who are considering an intimate wedding?
Make the details that you choose be meaningful to you and your guests.
