36 Dreamy Dahlia Wedding Bouquets
Like roses, peonies, and hydrangeas, dahlias are a sophisticated bloom that will bring an air of elegance to your wedding floral arrangements. If you're considering adding them to your wedding bouquet, you have our support! Especially since their dynamic shape—round petals with points—meshes well with so many other varieties of flowers and greenery. The bushy blooms come in a wide range of shades, so you can find dahlias that are vibrant and saturated orsoft and subdued. When it comes to these pretty flowers, you can absolutely take your pick.
Even better? They're arguably one of the more versatile types of buds on the bridal flower scene. One large, oversized stem (these beauties get giant!) can be the focal point of your bouquet while smaller dahlias simply add pretty pops of texture and color. Either way, the flower is worth considering. And you don't have to worry about adjusting your wedding's perfectly curated color palette since there's a variety out there (think neutral pastels, deep moody darks, and poppy brights) that's destined to match. Best of all, these summer blooms are about to be in season, which makes now the best time of all to find spots for dahlias in your big day.
That's why we've rounded up the following bouquets from real weddings to inspire your search. Here, a few of our favorite bridal arrangements with dahlias, all plucked straight from actual brides' celebrations. Whatever your wedding style—bright and bohemian or polished and classic—there's a way to make this seasonal bud work for you.
