Single Bloom Bouquets >> Minimal, Modern And Money-Saving!

We simply adore one bloom bouquets for wedding, whereby a bride (and her bridesmaids) carry a single stem down the aisle. This idea is trending for 2019 as many brides yearn for something unique, beautiful and affordable for their weddings. Not only is this concept mind-blowingly simple, but it also saves a huge amount of money! And, this genius plan does not require sacrificing any style either because single bloom bouquets are gorgeous, too! Regard this fabulous solitary peony below, which delivers a major wow factor:

If you are looking to keep things easy and streamlined for your wedding we invite you to consider this fun floral trend. Carrying a sole bloom down the aisle is crazy affordable, cool and will have all the past brides on your guest list thinking, “Why didn’t I do that?”

Just imagine the savings! An extravagant bridal bouquet can average $250, whereas one stem is only around $5. Multiply that by the number of bouquets you need for your special day and you will see that you can save hundreds if not thousands on your floral budget. Win!

Perfect for brides with a minimalist vibe, single bloom bouquets fit practically any wedding venue from outdoor ceremonies to indoor church events. Several types of flowers lend themselves to this modern trend such as magnolias, calla lillies, roses, and dahlias.


“The calla lilies are in bloom again…I carried them on my wedding day…”
Katherine Hepburn

A calla lily (like the lovely white one below) symbolizes innocence, purity and faith AND delivers major impact down the aisle:


There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.     

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Roses make amazing single bloom bouquets. Their beauty is beyond compare and there is good reason why poets love to mention them. For your wedding day look try adding a simple ribbon, or perhaps a handful of greenery to your bloom to elevate the look:

 “Have you ever looked at the bud of a magnolia flower? It’s a tight little pod that stays closed up for a long time on the end of its branch until one day, out of nowhere, it finally bursts open into this gigantic, gorgeous, fragrant flower that’s ten times bigger than the bud itself. It’s impossible to imagine that such a big beautiful thing could pop out of that tiny little bud. But it does.”

Joanna GainesThe Magnolia Story

A magnolia is a striking flower that works great as a single stem bouquet. Because the bloom is so large a solo magnolia conveys the look of a much bigger bouquet. This stunning flower is associated with dignity and a love of nature so it is perfect for outdoor brides! Magnolias definitely deliver a southern feel as well. And, hey, if it works for Joanna Gaines you know it is stylish!

Bright and beautiful, the dahlia represents dignity and elegance. Since this beauty also symbolizes commitment and a bond that lasts forever it makes a flawless wedding flower!

The utter simplicity of carrying just one flower down the aisle is very appealing. Not only does it save money and convey a minimalist, less-is-more feel, but it also focuses the attention on a single bloom. No matter what your wedding style or budget is, the single bloom trend can help you have the day of your dreams.
