About flowers and seeds
The idea of a sunflower wedding bouquet confuses you, because it is “like seeds, not the flowers?” These bright suns especially flowers, and only then it’s all the rest!
Especially if this is about ornamental varieties in which there are not seeds at all, as we have already said.
Due to the bright color and large size, Sunflower seeks to dominate in any bridal bouquet (except mini-grades). So you can go three ways.
The first way is to buy a sunflower bridal bouquet for the wedding day, adding a smaller inflorescence of other colors and cool colors (especially blue, white and pink). Small roses, Camilla, the big red hypericum berries are suited well for that. Let the bright sun will shine in the bride’s hands in a flower frame!
By the way, do not forget, that one of the most attractive color combinations including for the bride’s bouquet is yellow with blue.
The second way is a combination of sunflowers with an equally bright and large flowers (lilies, large roses or hot shades calla lilies). It turns a bright, noisy celebration of life, light and color, that’s perfect for the wedding!
The decor of the wedding the bride’s bouquet in this case is not needed practically, or is the addition of several major noticeable accessories.
The third way is a wedding bouquet of sunflowers. Sun and nothing but the sun! By the way, the bride’s bouquet with gerberas or mini sunflowers similar color creates the same impression, but it looks a bit fluffy and elegant.
The simplicity and brevity of the bride’s wedding bouquet open a little more room for decoration. But, in general, he does not really need – sunflowers are self-sufficient and really did need that discreet elegant ribbons.
Regarding the form of sunflower wedding bouquet, it is preferably circular classic and cascades. In the first case, due to the large size of the sunflowers perfectly outline shape wedding composition, the second – form a visible and bright “tail”.
You can also use a sunflower wedding bouquet on high stems – like compositions of callas, it turns gracefully and elegantly. But flower holder is usually not suitable: massive flowers are not combined with a small handle, and the stems are too thick.
Sometimes the brightness of the unusual flower pushes florists (and grooms) to a very unusual decision.
