Best of 2017: Bouts and Bouquets

With all the details in weddings both big and small, the flowers have become my absolute favorite. If I could, I would fill my home year round with the lush arrangements I see being carried down the aisle and the whimsical designs that top reception tables. But until then, I’ll have to settle for swooning over the designs that seem to get more and more incredible with each passing year. In 2017, bouquets accented by abundant greenery stole the show, while eye-catching boutonnieres fastened on jacket lapels and suit vests were out in force. As the year comes to an end, we're so excited to take a look back at all the amazing florals we've featured over the past year and share with you the best boutonnieres and bouquets of 2017!


This tropical wedding inspiration shoot, which was shot at Love Lister's Cypress Falls Event Center, was filled with colorful blooms. We love the way the grooms wore matching outfits but picked different color boutonnieres. | photo by Paige Vaughn Photography | floral design by Wimberley Flower Shop
