Normally when it comes to weddings, we're of the less is more school of thought.
But there's something about these big, bold, beautiful (and a little bit bad-ass!) blooms, that we just can't get enough of.

Oversized flowers have been cropping up all over Pinterest of late, adding a sense of fun, whimsy and theatrics to the typical wedding bouquet.
Opt for a single statement flower, or choose to have big blooms in your bouquet.
chat to your florist about choices for big fresh blooms; peonies, dahlias, poppies, and succulents can all be found in large varieties. Online stores like BHLDN and Etsy have crepe or paper faux versions available to buy.
The internet is positively brimming with tutorials for these big beauties (Brittany Jepsen of The House That Lars Built offers a great online masterclass, while Green Wedding Shoes and Design Sponge have simple DIYs)
Trying your own at home, is a handy way to add personality to your wedding and cut your flower budget.
Let these large lovelies be your inspiration…
