Best Bridal Bouquets of 2016

Best of 2016: Bouts & Bouquets

Pantone may have called “Greenery” as the Color of the Year for 2017 but the trend certainly began in 2016. Our best boutonnieres and bouquets from the past year are full of creative details, such as trendy lush greens, alternative vessels, unexpected textural elements and even vegetables, all of which are guaranteed to inspire 2017 couples.

Creative Wedding Bouquet Alternative

The air plant‘s bendy leaves give a unique structure to this bouquet that is rounded out with dusty miller and veronica, creating a style that is full of texture. | Photography by B. Jones Photography | Floral design by Bella Fiori

Boutonniere with Feather

The epic details in this styled shoot transported us back to the 1930s where Bennie and Clyde, inspired by the iconic bank-robbing duo but with a modern, equality-minded twist, are gearing up for their happily ever after. The feathery addition adds the perfect vintage vibe to this bout and the rich palette is perfect for a fall wedding. | Photography by Ed & Aileeen Photography | Floral design by Zuzu's Petals

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
