Beach Wedding Bridal Bouquets

While brides can choose any flowers they wish for their beach wedding, beach theme wedding bouquets often reflect the colors, textures, and nautical elements of the sea for a beautifully coordinated event. Fortunately, there are many beach wedding flower options suitable for a wide range of different beaches, wedding formalities, and wedding colors.
Tropical Flowers
Tropical blooms in bold, bright colors are perfect for a summer beach wedding. Many tropical flowers are larger and more unique than classic wedding flowers. Choose just one or two unusual blooms, such as this round protea, for a unique and eye-catching beach theme wedding bouquet.
Beach Roses
Rose bridal bouquets are popular choices for all types of weddings. Adding rich foliage to frame the bouquet instead of lighter ferns is a great way to coordinate with a beach theme.
Plumeria Bouquets
Plumeria is a simple, fragrant, and beautiful flower that is often used for beach theme wedding bouquets. Different colors of plumeria blooms can be used for both the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets for matching elegance.
Bridal Lei
Some brides may choose to forgo a bouquet altogether and instead wear a wedding lei coordinated to their wedding colors. Pinning a matching bloom or two into a wedding hair style is a romantic and tropical touch.
Something Blue
Your wedding bouquet can be your "something blue" for a beach wedding, and a rich blue hue and soft, curving blooms will continue the water and waves theme into the wedding decorations. Other options include wrapping a bouquet's stems with blue satin or ribbon, or adding trailing ribbons to the bouquet.
Calla Lilies
Calla lily bridal bouquets are popular for beach weddings because the soft curves of the flowers mimic the smooth sand and gentle waves. While white is one of the most popular shades, calla lilies are available in a wide range of colors to match any wedding palette.
Simple wildflower bouquets accented with grains or sea grass are a rustic and colorful option for summer beach weddings. These types of bouquets can be carried by the bride, bridal party, or both.
