Monochromatic bouquets are chic, trendy, and will totally pop in all of your wedding photos against a white dress. It's the perfect way to ensure your bouquet matches your wedding palette, whether you base your blooms off of your color scheme or color scheme off of your flowers. There are also so many options when it comes to the type of flower since most blooms are available in a variety of colors. Get inspired by these incredible bouquets from real weddings that nailed the monochromatic style. Some feature a single type of flower and others use multiple floral types all in the same color. The options are nearly endless!
Matthew Robbins only used one flower in this bride's clutch—a phalaenopsis orchid—and one color. "[The bride] wanted something bold and cascading but unfussy, so using only one variety of orchid kept the more dramatic and classic cascade very fresh and unique," says Matthew. Using one flower is a great way to ensure the monochromatic look truly comes through, and orchids are a fun and unique flower that can hold their own in a single-bloom clutch.

This vivid red bouquet features roses, lilies, amaryllis, anemones, ranunculus, and dahlias, which proves that an all-red bouquet doesn't have to contain only classic roses! (But, if you're more traditional, you can't go wrong with an all-red, all-rose bridal bouquet.)

If you're going for a rustic or minimal look, go green! To create a green monochromatic bouquet, you'll rely less on actual florals and more on wildflowers and greenery. This bride and her bridal party carried bouquets from ShapeColour Floral and Event Design featuring lilacs and wildflowers, which picked up the cascading green ivy covering the venue's rooftop.

Blue florals can be tough to find, especially if you want an all-blue bouquet rather than splashes of the color. Hydrangeas are a great solution as they always look full and beautiful on their own, and come in a few different shades of blue. This bride chose to carry a bouquet of muted blue hydrangeas from Fishers Flowers. "It tied in nicely with my gown, which had some very pale, milky blue crystal embellishments in addition to the pearls, beads, and sequins," she recalled.
