Pearlescent Pink Bouquet
This bouquet combines sweet peas, roses, and feathery astilbe with helichrysum and beaded leaves. To give it a magical shimmer and shine, pink sequins affixed to wire stems are interspersed among the blooms. For extra glitz, mother-of-pearl buttons dangle from metallic-pink ribbon attached to the handle.

La Vie en Rose
Cabbage roses in an array of pink shades are made even more romantic by the bouquet's white lace cuff.

Pristine snowberries make natural, understated arrangements; variations in color and size distinguish the attendants' bouquets from that of the bride. Here, the woody stems of pink snowberries are adorned with wide, mauve taffeta ribbon and secured with pearl-headed pins.

A Constellation of Dahlias
Pointed cream, pink, and apricot dahlias resemble stars, especially when arranged into a lush spherical bouquet.

In spite of its sweet nature, pink can be chic, even masculine. Roses with fuchsia-tipped petals strike a nice balance between being subtle and standing out.

Good As Gold
A mix of exuberant gold and yellow flowers appear regal in a bouquet unbound by symmetry. This eclectic array is composed of lady's slipper orchids, four types of cymbidium orchid, and mimosa, and they all mingle effortlessly.

Yellow roses are somewhat unexpected, but no less gorgeous. Although these garden cabbage roses, miniature spray roses, and hybrid roses form a classic dome, each variety is placed in clusters to better display its individual style and shade.
11 of 41
This bouquet of creamy yellow spring flowers is both subtle in color and rich in fragrance. Ranunculuses lend solidity to ethereal poppies and dainty narcissi; 'Cream Perfection' tulips are as sleek as the creamy yellow satin ribbon used to tie the stems.

"Ten thousand saw I at a glance," wrote the poet William Wordsworth about an encounter with wild daffodils. The abundance filled him with joy -- a response this bouquet of daffodils also inspires.

Sunny yellow-centered mums are fringed by bell-shaped nerines and tied with a lavender ribbon.

Gilding the Calla Lily
Not since Diego Rivera painted them has the beauty of calla lilies been captured as completely as in this bouquet. Downward cast, their blooms appear poised to chime, and their golden centers glow.

Elegant Touches of Gold
The soft ruffles of this ethereal ball of yellow-touched white cattleya orchids trail off giddily into girlish curls of pale-yellow ribbon.
16 of 41
As innocent as a white bouquet, these plump grape-hyacinth and delicate lavender florets are dressed with a mauve silk handle; a pin adorned with a lavender glass bead secures the ribbon on top.
17 of 41
Jewel-tone viburnum berries accentuate the fluttery lightness of the purple hybrid delphiniums and mirror their dark centers. Slender brodiaea blooms hang upside down at the edges of the bouquet. A vintage green satin ribbon covers the handle and is tied with a two-tone bow.
18 of 41
From a distance, this bouquet of viburnum and a Queen Anne's lace look-alike appears to be a bunch of soft, puffed snowballs; a close look reveals tiny blooms. Like real snowballs, viburnum needs to be kept cool. Keep the stems in water, and mist the blossoms every half hour until you walk down the aisle.

Lemony-green ribbon ties a loose, off-white arrangement of branches of gardenia blossoms, lilies of the valley, and sweet peas, with bright greens to freshen the whites.

Delicate Blue Cluster
A traditionally shaped bouquet becomes more unexpected with a profusion of blues, including azure miniature irises, and a variety of textures. This grouping would be delightful as a bride's "something blue." Muscari resembles small bunches of grapes; feathery scilla in the palest blue gives a sense of delicacy. The picot-edge bow reflects the flowers' wispiness.

This assembly of flowers in shades of green attains its fanlike silhouette through the use of wired gladioli and santini mums. Evergreen leaves offer a fresh feel, and ruffled lady's mantle provides extra texture. The handle, covered in white satin ribbon and chartreuse velvet, is embellished with a double strand of freshwater pearl beads.
22 of 41
This bouquet has a variety of textures, colors, and scents, thanks to the mix of muscari (grape hyacinth), lamb's ear, lily of the valley, andromeda, helleborus, thyme, rosemary, sage, and scented-geranium foliage.
24 of 41
This tightly packed oval bouquet incorporates five varieties of roses, 'Blue Curiosa,' 'Rustique,' 'Sahara,' 'Esther,' and 'Magic Silver' -- plus the odd surprise of one perfect saffron 'Oriental Curiosa' rose.

A loosely gathered offering of heather, wax flowers, lavender sweet peas, Genista, and Tulbaghia -- for that special relative or close friend who is your maid of honor.

Calla Lilies and Tulips
Available in a wide range of colors, calla lilies and tulips can be paired into brilliant bundles. Here, some variations on a fiery theme -- one for each bridesmaid. Matching satin ribbons add the finishing touch.

Lilies of the valley and sprightly purple hyacinths create a flurry of brush strokes against plump Parrot tulips.

This sweeping creation is a twist on the pageant (or "presentation") bouquet, named for the long-stemmed arrangement a beauty queen carries in the crook of her arm. It is 18 inches long and consists of hellebores, clematis, gladiolus, forget-me-nots, and sweet peas. Its grand dimensions are ideal for a formal occasion; for a more casual event, try paring down the size.

The contrast of bright yellow and deep purple gives this daring, exotic bouquet -- composed of miltonia and phalaenopsis orchids -- a modern yet playful feel. The stems are bound with velvet ribbon and thin metallic trim.

This bridal bouquet is overflowing with fragrance and texture. Ruffly sweet peas and tumbling lilacs, ranging from deep purple to almost pink, suggest romance. Tucked in between are more sweet peas in creamy whites, plus lamb's ear, oregano blossoms, and lisianthus. Two-tone ribbon binds the stems.

An ivory gown becomes more luminous when paired with a bouquet of purple Dutch calla lilies, chocolate cosmos, lisianthus, lamb's ear, and burgundy ribbon. The bride is the picture of natural grace in a wreath of pale lisianthus buds threaded with cosmos.

What could be more romantic than pink roses? Grand pink garden roses in full flower nestle among smaller, creamy garden and spray roses -- in bud and bloom -- in this luxurious dome. Pure white nerines, which resemble lilies, are sprinkled throughout the bouquet.

To make a fall or winter bouquet even more lush, include cockscomb -- the deep-pink ruffle-edged flower here -- and then highlight its rich texture with a thick velvet-ribbon bouquet wrap. This example contains calla lilies, sweet peas, and cockscomb in shades of pink.

Buttercream-and-pink phalaenopsis orchids flutter like butterflies among ruffle-edged, magenta garden roses, pale-pink rounded garden roses, and still paler spray roses. The tails of a light yellow ribbon emphasize the bouquet's downward sweep.
35 of 41
Dramatic chartreuse flowers and variegated greenery share the spotlight in this explosion of cymbidium orchids, gloriosa lilies, leucodendron, and hosta leaves.

The Couture Rose
Florist Michael George creates his signature bridal bouquet, the couture rose, by removing the petals from many roses -- here he used 'Message' (the light yellow) and 'Ilios' (darker yellow) -- then carefully wiring them into a single, exquisite blossom six to seven inches across.

Brush with Greatness
Whoever said red holds the patent on passion? Blooms in shades from the palest blush to deep melon blend together like watercolors for a bouquet so romantic, it would make a crimson rose swoon. This vivacious cluster of poppies, parrot tulips, garden roses, mini amaryllis, and cattleya orchids is barely contained by a wrapping of three hand-dyed silk satin ribbons in a coordinating range of peachy hues.

With its palette of white and pink, this fluttery mound of sweet peas, gladiolas, nerines, azaleas, and cymbidium orchids mimics the soft edges of a watercolor painting: It's impossible to put your finger on just where one shape begins and another ends. A wide, picot-edge voile ribbon imparts a modern touch to the bouquet.

What begins at one end with a few drops of pink in the blooms of sweet peas, hyacinths, and nerines culminates in a deluge of fuchsia peonies, ruby fringe tulips, and raspberry cyclamens. You could also create this gradient look, set in a low container here, with an aisle of vases. Complete the effect by wrapping favor boxes with our ombre-inspired paper.Learn How to Make Wrapped Favor Boxes

Yellow flowers for a summer affair might sound trite, but when they're in a dramatic centerpiece of phalaenopsis orchids, mimosa blossoms, and gold and white French tulips that arc and bend perfectly, the effect is wholly original. To make a real splash, pair with an ombre tablecloth and set with our watercolor-style place cards that require no artistic talent -- just a printer.Get the Place Card Clip-Art

This waterfall of 'Conca d'Or' lilies, eucharis lilies, jasmine, snow berries, phalaenopsis orchids, and cattleya orchids spilling forth from a band of yellow silk ribbon is as graceful as it is exuberant. Although its shape is free-flowing, there's nothing diluted about its appeal. For an added stroke of genius that coordinates beautifully, blot your programs with yellow watercolor.
