Underrated Wedding Flowers

Carnations as wedding flowers


Move over, roses and marigolds… We love these classics as much as the next person, but with so many options out there for unique bouquets, we’re here to give some much-needed attention to some of the more underrated wedding flowers.

Some are well-known staples with a twist, others are more surprising. But rest assured that choosing any of these unique flowers for your wedding will automatically take your big day up a notch.



We’re serious! These fluffy blooms don’t always get the love they deserve, but their versatility, symbolism, and reliable beauty are making a comeback. Because of the simplicity of their blooms, you have so many options when it comes to these underrated wedding flowers: let them steal the show with a carnations-only arrangement, or play with texture and proportions by mixing them with smaller flowers and interesting greenery.

And you’re not limited to putting them in your bouquet… Try them hanging in a “flower wall,” in classic, subtle centrepieces, or even as part of your wardrobe in a flower crown or hairpiece.


Multi-Coloured Hydrangea

These underrated wedding flowers are definitely a new twist on an old favourite. You’ve probably seen wedding hydrangeas in their famous white or pale blue shades, but there’s a whole world of hydrangeas out there that can give your big day flowers an edge. Multi-coloured varieties can add a pop of pink or pale green to a bouquet that would otherwise blend in with your dress.

Choosing multi-coloured hydrangea flowers for your wedding is perfect if you’re a bride who wants a little more flair on your big day.


Choosing flowers for a wedding can be overwhelming, but it can also be an exciting way to start personalising your big day to make sure your unique style is truly represented. We hope this list of underrated wedding flowers gives you a great head start!
