Gorgeous organic wedding bouquet

Flowers:Everyday Holiday  | Yaroslav & Jenny

We’re continuing our Best of Weddings (or BOW, for short) awards today and highlighting one of my favorite parts of the wedding day — the flowers! While a small piece of the puzzle, the right wedding day flowers can really make or break the entire atmosphere of a wedding celebration. Whether they’re fluffy peonies that are trimmed and arranged to perfection or an expertly styled cascading bouquet of wildflowers and leaves, this key wedding decor element sure did WOW us in 2014!

One of my favorite trends in wedding flowers in 2014 has to be the resurgence of using pretty green leaves to make a simple but visually stunning impact on the bride and groom’s wedding day. I’ve featured a few perfect leafy looks, as well as some other jaw-dropping arrangements that are sure to leave you swooning. Read on to see the best wedding bouquet ideas this year!
