Opt for a simple arrangement of lavender for a delicate and dainty look. Keep the stems long and team with wheat for a more rustic display, or loosely arrange short lavender stems for something more chic and pretty – ideal for classic or vintage affairs.

9. Garden veggies

If you’re a bit of a foodie, or perhaps live on a farm, why not take advantage of the season’s harvest with a vegetable bouquet? A cheap and striking alternative to the flower bouquet, you’ll still have plenty of flexibility when it comes to your bouquet’s colour scheme and shape.

10. Daisies

Just because daises are simple, doesn’t mean they’re not bouquet-worthy. Ideal for boho-inspired or rustic wedding days, there are plenty of choices when it comes to your daisy-like creation.

11. Herbs

Keep your bouquet smelling beautiful with garden herbs. While the herb bouquet may sound like a relatively new idea, they were very common during the Victorian era. Herbs held serious meaning, with lavender standing for luck and devotion, rosemary for remembrance, sage for a long life and thyme for courage. Why not combine all four for the ultimate wedding charm?

Create a real Mediterranean vibe with a bouquet of olive branches. Ideal for the Grecian goddess and more laid-back, free-spirited affairs, olive branches are also great for wreaths.
