Warmth and Happiness: 20 Perfect Sunflower Wedding Bouquet Ideas

Sunflower and Greenery Bouquet

If your wedding day is more of a formal affair and you’re a woman who likes to keep things simple, make a big entrance by pairing your sunflowers with different kinds of greenery. The contrast between the golden yellow petals and lush green leaves will be striking and look very upmarket.

Sunflowers and Jewel-Tone Flowers Bouquet

If you’re a bride who loves jewel-tones like deep purple and eggplant, a pop of gold is a great addition to your existing bouquet. It adds some warmth to the bunch and also creates a stunning contrast against the purple, for a dramatic finish.

Sunflower and Anemone Bouquet

Brides who love a fresh and natural-looking bouquet, will fall in love with this option. Mix your sunflowers with white anemones, wildflowers, ranunculus and greenery for a “just-picked” feel. Simply wrap your stems in ribbon or hessian for a no-frills finish.

Vintage Sunflower Bouquet

If you’re a bride who loves photography and all things vintage, this could be the perfect sunflower wedding bouquet for you!

If you’re a purple-lover and also fancy adding succulents to your bouquet, you CAN have it all! Mix sunflowers with yellow tulips, succulents and purple lisianthus. Tie with a deep purple bow to bring it all together.

Rustic Sunflower Bouquet

Dramatic Burgundy and Sunflower Bouquet

Many brides are looking to add a bit of drama to their wedding look, which can be easily achieved through the bouquet. Burgundy is a bold color that complements the golden petals well. Create yours using dahlias, dusty pink hydrangeas and leaves with touches of burgundy.

When it comes to sunflower wedding bouquets, sometimes less is more! Keep it simple and fuss-free by pairing a single stem large sunflower with lush greenery like ferns. Tie together with twine or satin ribbon.
