Bouquets of mixed blooms are the norm, but going for a bouquet filled with one type of flower in the same color has a stunning effect. If you have a penchant for pink peonies or red anemones, a bouquet of just that alone will be striking. This is also a great idea for your bridesmaids too, especially if you are carrying a mixed bouquet and want them to have something different. We’ve found 10 gorgeous summer bouquets for inspiration.

1. Protea 

This stunning flower is such a standout and you only need a few of them to create a bouquet. The oversized blooms have an almost whimsical look to them, and would work well in a forest or  outdoor venue.
