Spring wedding bouquets are traditionally visions of pastel prettiness. And we definitely love that look. But we thought we’d focus on another option you might consider to celebrate the freshness of the season: green flowers, foliage, berries, even succulents! The gorgeous bouquet inspiration we share here will surely get you thinking of ‘going green’ for this most important floral accessory on your Big Day!
Gorgeous Green Bouquet Ideas
1 – Looking for a more modern flair for your bouquet? This monochromatic arrangement featured on Perfectly Pearl (credited to Old Town Florist) is a great example. Love the lady slipper orchids, green hyperium berries and lime green spider mums, finished with a touch of copper ribbon!
2 – Like a cloud of sweetness, an arrangement entirely of dainty baby’s breath isn’t exactly green in itself. But doesn’t it look just divine complementing a soft green bridesmaid’s dress, as in this photo from the Style Me Pretty gallery (styling by The Kept Nest)? No longer a mere bouquet filler!
3 – This stunning bouquet from Hibiscus Florals showcases green anthuriums combined with white lilies, white dendrobiums, and white phaleanopsis orchids. Such an elegant arrangement! You’d never guess these are all artificial ‘couture real touch’ blooms—meaning they both look and feel natural!
4 – Mustn’t overlook succulents to bring in the green! See all the reasons why in this gorgeous inspiration shoot via Whimsical Wonderland Weddings (with styling by Helen Carter Weddings, now Carter Nendick Weddings & Events). Succulents have been growing in popularity for wedding bouquets, boutonnieres, and table centerpieces. And rightly so! Not only are they shapely, hardy, and available year round, they can also be re-planted after the wedding. Now, that’s a truly green idea!
5 – A mass of pale green hydrangea forms the lush base for this bouquet by Passion Roots. Then, nestled in among them are green spider mums with cute little green button mums adding pops of brighter color.
Other green bouquet elements you may consider: cymbidium orchids, calla lilies, bells of Ireland, carnations, hanging amaranthus, dendrobium, and gladiola among many others. For a handy image reference, see this guide.

For something truly unusual, ornamental kale is one striking choice for a green bouquet. Grandiflora LLC uses it as large blossom-shaped foliage framing bright, cheery bursts of craspedia ‘billy balls.’ Check it out!
