Even thought it is officially Fall, it’s not too late to enjoy a Bright, Bohemian Wildflower Wedding… actually, make that two… First, enjoy a Polyvore Inspiration with bright pops of yellow and crazy fun textures. Then, check out a real life Wildflower Wedding by one of our DIY Brides!
If you picture a wedding with a beautiful long, flowy dress, floral prints with pops of color and a relaxed and carefree vibe, then this might be the wedding style for you! To create a Bridal bouquet, 2 Bridesmaids Bouquets, 3 Mini Bouquets (2 Moms, 1 Flower Girl), 5 Boutonnieres (1 Groom, 2 Groomsmen, 2 Dads), 2 Welcome or Altar Arrangements, and 10 Centerpieces, here is what you will need…
Wholesale Flowers Used:
- 20 bunches White Asters
- 10 bunches or 100 stems Yellow Craspedia Billy Balls
- 10 bunches or 100 stems Yarrow Achillea Yellow Flower
- 35 stems Yellow Pin Cushion Protea
- 7 bunches or 70 stems Bupleurum Greens
- 30 stems Small Sunflowers
- 36 stems Lemon Pompom Yellow Garden Roses
- 1 Bridal Bouquet – Use 8 Protea, 9 Sunflowers, 10 Yellow Garden Roses, 10 Billy Balls, 7-10 stems Yarrow, 5-7 stems Bupleurum, and 5-7 stems Asters.
- 2 Bridesmaids Bouquets – Use 3 Protea, 5 Yellow Garden Roses, 7 stems Asters, 7 Sunflowers, 5-7 stems Bupleurum, and a few stems Yarrow in each.

- 1 Mini Bouquet for Flower Girl – Use 5 Yellow Garden Roses and 5 stems Asters.
- 2 Welcome/Altar Arrangements: Use tall “French market” style vases (spray paint yellow for added pop or leave ‘galvanized’ and make sure to waterproof all seams for safety) – Use remaining Asters, about 20 stems per vase, for a ‘just-picked’ look. After the Ceremony, transfer to cake table, or reception hall to double your fun.
- 10 small Mason jar wildflower centerpieces (or break into 2-3 mini vases each for the more ecclectic look) – Use 10 stems Asters, 5 Billy Balls, 2 Protea, 5 stems Bupleurum and 5 Yarrow,
A fun mix of textures creates perfectly carefree and unstructured wildflower style arrangements while pops of yellow add the perfect touch of sunshine to your day.
Now, a DIY Bride shows us how she worked the wildflower style in her own way…
