Wild at Heart Designer Heather Barrie takes this sweet collection of lisianthus, ranunculus, freesia, cyclamen, and heady tuberose for a walk on the wild side with the addition of Star of Bethlehem, fern curls, and seeded eucalyptus pods. “My focus was on the use of foliage as a contrast,” she says. “I wanted it to be soft and romantic, yet unusual.” The bouquet is hand-tied with double-satin Midori ribbon in a subtle shade of green fig.

Starry, Starry Night “This bouquet is reminiscent of a bright, star-filled night,” says floral designer Clara Varga-Gonzales, who hand-tied a cluster of white Dutch tulips surrounded by white faux feathers, sprays of rhinestones, and a collar of “Milky Way” aspidistra leaves in sequence-beaded, double-faced satin lace to accent the bride’s gown. Tiger Lily ($300); (843) 723-2808 or www.tigerlilyflorist.com

Carefree Cluster The slightly footloose feel of this bouquet evokes the easy charm of a pixie’s nosegay. Sprays of curly willow lend an earthy whimsy to the lighthearted assemblage of pink rosebuds, delphinium, fuchsia heather, bonsai eucalyptus, white dendrobium orchids, and galax leaves. The stems are wrapped on the bias in decorative gold trim with faux pearl accents. Designers Lisa Passarini and Steve Sharpe describe the look as a “bold, natural take on the feminine.” A Floral Affair ($75-$125); (843) 388-9100 or www.afloralaffaironline.com

Tropical Aisle Floral designer Mary Silsby’s inspiration for this alluring bundle of blooms was “unique color contrasts to offset the vivid green of the cymbidium orchids.” Accented with tiny calamondin oranges, lotus pods, ruscus leaf, and sprays of hypericum berries, the orchids make a lush bouquet. Stems are wrapped with green organza ribbon. Lotus Flower ($225-$250); (843) 534-2837 or lotusbuds@msn.com
