100 Layer Cake best of 2016: bridal bouquets

December 27, 2016
Wedding cakes were pretty mindblowing this year, huh? It’s no wonder most of them were adorned with flowers, considering just the floral wedding details that inspired them. As far as bridal blooms, this was the year of big bouquets—fuller and filled to the brim with more flowers + greenery than ever before. Brides wanted something that looked natural and wild and undeniably romantic. So many of them included classic wedding flowers like peonies, dahlias, and garden roses surrounded by every type of green. Even the most modern bouquets had that free-spirited boho twist…

(You’ll probably never see a best-of post without a peony bouquet, and the blooms in this feature are exactly why they’ll never go out of style.)

(This Big Sur wedding was one of our top posts. We’re thinking the incredible views, red wedding dress, and this bouquet could have something to do with it…)
