4 Statement Flowers to Step Up Your Bridal Bouquet

We’ve seen our fair share of beautiful bridal bouquets here at Junebug Weddings, from the overgrown armfuls of blooms to the minimalist bunches of leaves. However, the first bouquets to come to mind are always those with a statement flower turning up the volume on the arrangement. We’re all about taking your floral design to the next level, and these four flowers come with a serious punch!


No statement bloom list would be complete without the king of all flowers: the protea! This flower, which happens to be the national flower of South Africa, is known for its unusual shape: a row of large, spiked pink petals that open to expose a large center made up of fine spines.

What the anemone lacks in size, it makes up for in visual interest. The white flower with a dark black or navy center draws the eye in, whether its surrounded by a neutral bouquet or a handful of bold blooms.

While dahlia bouquets are nothing new, using them as a statement has been a major trend in floral design recently. Adding a large dahlia bloom in your wedding color creates a beautiful visual statement, drawing the eye in and around the rest of your bouquet. The curved, pointed petals will grab the attention of your guests, and they photography gorgeously too!

In 2016, a girl’s best friend is none other than the soft, pink peony. They’re utterly romantic with their delicate petals, while adding volume due to their notable size. Just one peony is all it takes to elevate your bouquet from pretty to swoon-worthy.
