Is this for your wedding? What time of year is it.

I say something simple would be great due to the power and intensity of a rose. But Ive also seen some really colorful and wild bouquets, just depends on your colors and prefs.

I agree with PP but I have falen in love with succents being used in bridal bouquets.  It doesn’t work at all with my theme or colors but I think they are simply stunning and so different. They would be so pretty with pinks of those roses.

I think your instincts are spot on. I think a white clustered-type flower would be a great complement to the roses in your bouquet.

I think white, to highlight the beautiful colours of your roses, and a ruffly flower to soften the more structural quality of roses.

Hydrangea and stock are great options, as would be sweet pea, freesias, white lilacs, sweet william, godetia, and Phlox.

Hypercium berries are quite popular, too. Although I’m not much of a fan.


If you want to match your roses, rather than contrast them, you could go with mini calla lilies, oriental lilies or orchids. They are all equally structural as roses, and you could get them in white, or in pink and green, to match your roses.

I think personally, I would go for the more balanced bouquet, and add white stock (or sweet peas, if finances allowed).


Here’s a bouquet with roses, stock, lisanthus and freesia

I think hydrangeas and peonies would be amazing with those roses.

i love the bouquet with the lisanthus and freesia.  peonies would also look really nice but with your wedding in august, i would have a backup plan just in case they are not available or too expensive.

My florist told me that hydrangeas wilt very quickly and aren’t good in bouquets.  I agree with PPs and a nice white flower would be great.
