If you've chosen a Sunflower themed wedding, the sky is the limit as to how you work it into your big day.  It's beautiful as a backdrop for your wedding ceremony as well as your overall wedding decor.  Sunflowers easily lend themselves to a variety of aesthetics you maybe desire: e.g. a rustic wedding, fresh-from-the-garden look, romantic, and autumn or fall theme also.  Their versatility makes them a great choice for whimsical and boho wedding ideas too!  How exactly might you incorporate them into your overall style?  The obvious choice is to incorporate them for the whole wedding party, e.g. into the bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets, flower girl posies, the wedding arch/alter, sunflower centerpieces, and the groom's boutonnieres as you see on this page. If you want them in the boutonnieres or a corsages/wristlet, be sure to ask for Viking Daisies.  They are the small pom mums that look like miniature sunflowers - how cool is that?  Also, consider using the sunflowers in floral arrangements along the aisle as you walk in, then you can easily repurpose them on the wedding reception tables for decor there as well!  A great way to stretch your wedding flower budget.  What color palette do Sunflowers work well with?  As you can see in the sunflower pictures below, the sky is the limit. If you are unsure what colors to pair them with, your florist is an expert in combining colors. If you have your heart set on a particular color in addition to yellow sunflowers, they can make it happen by combining the sunflowers with analogous, complimentary, or monochromatic colors.  I've combined them with orange, blue, coral, red, other shades of yellow, and more. Sunflower colors, themselves, are quite versatile.  They come in the classic yellow color, but also look at the red sunflowers. If you work with a farmer/florist, you can probably convince them to grow green and purple sunflowers too!  They do exist, believe it or not.   ​ What flowers pair well with Sunflowers? Sunflowers are team players, and pair very nicely with many other flowers.  We've matched them with gerbera daisies, roses, snapdragons, baby's breath, thistle, delphinium, zinnias, and a variety of foliages to make beautiful wedding flowers.   They have a long growing season, and with a little planning with your cut flower farmer, such as myself, you can have fresh from the garden sunflowers up until the end of September. Let your imagination roam, as you think about what sunflower floral designs you'd like in your wedding, what other flowers you'll combine with them, and what different sunflower colors you may choose to use. Their large size lends themselves to more affordable, budget friendly wedding florals - look at how much space one stem takes up! You'd need 3-5 roses to take up the same amount of space.  You've come to the right place to get some sunflower wedding ideas for your own big day.  Pick and choose what works best for your style and theme! Enjoy a bit of each sunflower wedding we've had the privilege of doing.
