20 Stunning Wedding Bouquets with Ferns
If you're into the symbolic nature of flowers, you can't go wrong by including ferns in your wedding bouquet. Known to represent everything from fidelity and eternal faithfulness to reverie, magic, and sincerity, there are few other types of flowers or greenery that speak to the important commitment you're making on your wedding day more than a fern. Even if you don't care quite so much about the symbolism, there's no denying that these pretty plants are especially wedding-worthy. Often used as an accent with more common wedding flowers (think: peonies, garden roses, and anemones), ferns add a timeless beauty to any arrangement. And if your ceremony will be faithful to tradition, you can't go wrong by asking your florist to include ferns in your bouquet.
Whether you consider yourself a classic bride or more of a modern, whimsical one, there's a type of fern that works with your arrangement and style. While there are countless varieties native to different areas, you can expect to find everything from tight feather-like leaves to looser, trailing shapes from this plant family.
Ready to see how you can work ferns into your wedding bouquet? Here, 20 examples of fern bouquets done right.
