Bouquet Blueprint | Nautical + Navy

Share this project

We are absolutely protesting the end of summer… and so we thought it fitting to end the month by sharing this stunning, bold nautical wedding bouquet. Our favorite florist Jacki from Floral Design by Jacqueline Ahne has once again outdone herself, creating this funky and fresh design. It’s not just the style that lends perfectly for a summer or early fall wedding… these flowers peak availability season is the same. This nautical bouquet combines bold tropical flowers and sharp colors with soft pillowy blooms for a loud seaworthy statement!

Most of these beautiful flowers are available year round with the peak availability being in summer and fall.

This bouquet was created in a bouquet holder to allow for the short stems of the thistle and Celosia to be included. It also allowed us to easily place the tulip anthiriums facing the right direction. Tulip Anthiriums are very strong however it’s best to keep the ‘touching’ to a minimum – since they can discolor quickly from the oils on our hands.

1 bunch black Scabiosa, 1 stem blue Thistle, 5 stems gold Celosia, 5 white tulip Anthiriums, and 5 stems red Dahlias. You will also need 1 bouquet holder, ¼ yard blue and white stripped fabric (or ribbon) and gold head pins.

The boutonnieres shown here are colorful mixes that perfectly compliment this funky nautical bouquet. From mini dahlia blooms to scabiosa blooms these boutonnieres are packed full of texture! Some of the stems are covered in the same stripped fabric for a uniform look. The textures and bold primary colors make these bouts manly!
