Unique wedding flowers aren’t for everyone, but mixed with some familiar floral suspects like roses and peonies, offbeat blossoms can be a great way to create a one-of-a-kind look for your bouquet. You’ve probably seen unique wedding flowers you like, but you might not know what they’re called, and if you don’t know what they’re called you can’t tell your florist what you want, right? That’s exactly why we’ve put together a guide to some of our favourite unique wedding flowers, including what colours they’re available in, when they’re available and why we love them! Some unique wedding flowers like king proteas and birds of paradise are exotic hothouse flowers that can only be grown in greenhouses, while others like globe thistles and astilbes abound in gardens right here at home.
Many of the unique wedding flowers we’ve chosen to highlight will add interest and texture to your bridal bouquet, and they can be selected according to your theme. Amaranthus, a romantic hanging flower, is perfect for creating a dreamy cascading bouquet for a vintage or rustic wedding, while the bright, otherworldly looking pincushion protea is best suited to a quirky, preppy celebration.
