Everyone has a favorite rom-com that says a lot about their personality. From cult classics like Bridesmaids to new releases including Why Can’t My Life Be a Rom-Com and even films that live off the beaten path, such as So I Married an Axe Murderer, there is a title that is sure to resonate with you. While you may not want to recreate the wedding scene from your favorite rom-com, taking inspiration from the movie, perhaps songs from the brilliant soundtracks to add to your wedding playlist, is a fun and authentic way to weave your personality into your big day. At Flora D’ Amore, our experts are predicting what kind of wedding bouquet you would carry if you were the star of your favorite romantic comedy.
A true cult classic about what it takes to be a bridesmaid and friend, Bridesmaids is filled with hilariously quirky and colorful moments. Whether taking a cue from the Parisian-themed bridal shower or the fabulous lavender Fritz Bernaise dresses, we can’t picture a more perfect wedding bouquet than a round style with pink and soft purple blooms.
Inspired by the many personalities of each bride in the movie, Katherine Heigl’s character in 27 Dresses has quite the eclectic bridal party at her own wedding. While your personal style should be the main event, let your bridal party bring their own flair. Lean into the trend of each bridesmaid having a unique bouquet that matches your desired color palette, creating a cohesive yet mismatched look – a canvas of personality. Of course, we assume you’ll be ending the night dancing on the bar to Bennie and the Jets.
There’s nothing more romantic than the holiday season in London or a film that depicts the most heartwarming love stories, but not without a bit of heartache. If you can’t wait to watch Love Actually every year, we’re confident the holidays hold a special place in your heart. Your wedding day will be filled with joy, perhaps a surprise rendition of All You Need is Love, and fresh winter blooms adorned in seasonal accents, like berries or feathery greens.
If singing along to ABBA for an hour and 48 minutes is up your alley, take a hint from Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia. Even if your wedding isn’t taking place on an astonishing Greek island, a boho-style gown paired with a flower crown and a freestyle bouquet filled with neutral blooms and greenery is your ideal look. Let your spirit run free during your wedding reception, which is sure to be adorned with twinkling lights.
Sex and the City: The Movie
Whether you’re a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, or Charlotte, going all out for your wedding is a must. And if Carrie Bradshaw has inspired your fashion choices in the past, your wedding bouquet will be no different. Lean towards grand statement flowers, like white roses, peonies, and blue feather accents (IYKYK), or something yellow and modest if you’re planning an intimate, romantic city hall wedding. As you stand there next to the love of your life, surrounded by the scent of fresh flowers, you won’t be able to help but wonder, is this beautiful and perfect moment the start of our forever love story?
The Princess Bride
Adored by children and adults alike, The Princess Bride unleashes our whimsical fairytale dreams. As this movie is set in the Renaissance, your wedding bouquet should be fit for a princess ready to marry her knight in shining armor – or farm boy in a black mask. With pink blooms and lush greenery, ensure your bouquet is designed with varying levels and textures to signify each chapter of your love story.
So I Married an Axe Murderer
Filled with beat poetry, humor, mystery, and a little fear, So I Married an Axe Murderer, starring Mike Meyers, is a 90s rom-com not to be forgotten. If There She Goes is still playing on a loop in your head, try a wedding bouquet comprised of calla lilies that symbolize passion and union. Their sleek and striking appearance, paired with a unique touch, captures the film’s creative and novel flair.
The Wedding Singer
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are like rom-com royalty, and The Wedding Singer is where it all began. While this movie provides all the retro 80s wedding inspiration one could ever need, focus on those bold and electric hues to create a vibrant yet modern wedding bouquet. From colorful peonies and roses to fun accents and fresh greenery, let your fun and witty personality shine through.
50 First Dates
The persistence of Adam Sandler in 50 First Dates makes us swoon every time, and his creativity for impressing Drew Barrymore’s character, Lucy, never falls short. Even if you leave pineapples and waffles off your menu, you can still transport your guests to the Hawaiian islands through fresh tropical flowers. An island-inspired bouquet of orchids, anthuriums, or plumeria with big green leaves is one nobody will ever forget…even Lucy.
No matter what your favorite movie or style is, work with the experts at Flora D’ Amore to make your wedding day feel like the greatest movie of all time.
