Getting married at the beach, a waterfront venue, or in a scenic destination wedding spot often means you can skip some of your wedding decor (since you don't want to overpower the scenery). But if there's one detail that you should keep, it's your bridal bouquet! Not only does the bouquet serve as an accessory for your wedding day look, it also ties the whole decorative aesthetic together. Before you meet with your wedding florist, check out these beach wedding bouquets to give you an idea of what you do and don't like.

Monstera Leaf Wedding Bouquet 

The giant monstera leaf is a staple among beachy and tropical floral arrangements. Use one as the "base" for your wedding bouquet, then add contrasting flowers, like the anthurium, pincushion proteas, ginger torch, and roses seen here.

King Protea Wedding Bouquet

A favorite for boho brides, the king protea is impossible to miss. These spiky flowers are native to South Africa and are known for lasting several days after they've been cut, which is what makes them popular for beach wedding bouquets and hotter climates.

Speaking of monochromatic, this allover yellow bouquet definitely packs a punch. We predicted yellow to be one of the top wedding colors of 2021, and it's also the Pantone Color of the Year.
