Loose + Organic

This carefree arrangement uses big blooms and small filler flowers in different colors with plenty of greens to ground it and give it texture. Get tips from flower arranging instructor Ash Bailey of The Byrd Collective to create a similar style at home.

Cheerful + Round

Happy shades of yellow, green and cream meet in this wedding bouquet. If you're planning an informal spring wedding, this round dome of tulips, roses and freesias is for you.

Bonus: Spring Boutonniere

Raffia-tied lily of the valley flowers are sweet and unusual. The strong leaves keep it from looking too girly.

Country Ombre

Purple is a hot hue for weddings right now. Work it in to your own wedding with mauve sweet peas, pink roses and purple veronica. Hand-tie the teardrop-shaped bouquet with raffia and seagrass for a rustic touch.

Bonus: Summery Country Boutonniere

This single rose picks up the roses in the bride's bouquet.

Single-Flower Power

This bouquet of peonies is chic and striking because it uses only one type of flower. The minimalist pop of pink works best for an urban or modern summer wedding.

Bonus: Modern Summer Boutonniere

Small curls of black ribbon toughen up a single, summery rose.

Warm Autumn Palette

Amber, gold, bronze and red flowers fill this autumn bouquet and mimic the season's changing leaves. Mini sunflowers make a statement without overpowering the other blooms.

Bonus: Autumn Boutonniere

The calla lily's flowing shape is a cool counterpoint to the bursts of berries.

Bonus: Alternative Autumn Boutonniere

If the calla lily feels too exotic, gentlemen can go with a classic rose.

Winter White

This feminine bouquet is perfect for winter weddings because it conjures up soft, powdery snow. Tiny frosted pearls woven in with the flowers are an unexpected twist.

Bonus: Winter Boutonniere

Three white roses with just a few pearls look clean and compact.
