Chrysanthemums are another type of flower with endless eye-catching hues. Future brides who love to garden could make their bouquets more personal by growing chrysanthemums at home. They’ll last for 14 to 21 days after cutting if they’re placed in a vase of water until your big walk down the aisle.

4. Peonies

Gardeners can also easily grow peonies for their bridal bouquets. The soft flower buds look like silken wonders alongside dreamy gowns and veils. If you grow them at home, spend the money on wedding details that will make the experience more fun, like renting a party bus for your bachelorette party.

5. Gerberas

Anyone who adores sunflowers will love gerberas. They look nearly identical to sunflowers, except that they come in a variety of colors and have thinner stems. They’re easy to work into bouquets with other flowers or greenery while remaining the eye-catching focal point of any flower arrangement.
