Flowers:Everyday Holiday

We're continuing our Best of Weddings (or BOW, for short) awards today and highlighting one of my favorite parts of the wedding day -- the flowers! While a small piece of the puzzle, the right wedding day flowers can really make or break the entire atmosphere of a wedding celebration. Whether they're fluffy peonies that are trimmed and arranged to perfection or an expertly styled cascading bouquet of wildflowers and leaves, this key wedding decor element sure did WOW us in 2014!

One of my favorite trends in wedding flowers in 2014 has to be the resurgence of using pretty green leaves to make a simple but visually stunning impact on the bride and groom's wedding day. I've featured a few perfect leafy looks, as well as some other jaw-dropping arrangements that are sure to leave you swooning. Read on to see the best wedding bouquet ideas this year!

Flowers: H Julien Designs

Pink and green together is always a good idea, but H Julien Designs elevated the look with a stunning protea bloom balanced with other larger and small flowers.

Flowers:The Potting Shed

This bouquet is the perfect example of using colors that pop -- these two red dahlias are the perfect punch of color to an otherwise lovely and light palette.

Is this the perfect autumn wedding bouquet? The elegant rustic colors of dusty pink, red, and tangerine make me think so !

Florals: Love n' Fresh Flowers

This bouquet stuns as another perfect autumn bouquet, with darker statement colors being balanced out by the pretty pink dahlias.

This bouquet is classic elegance with a rustic twist, accentuated with the thistle and wheat.

For a more subtle but still seriously pretty look, try mixing a statement succulent with neutral peach and white colored flowers. The result is pure magic.

This amazing pink, violet and white bouquet is the perfect example of a statement wedding color translating beautifully into a bride's wedding day flowers.

It's simple but pretty -- fresh lavender is the perfect rustic and beautiful look for the bride on a budget.
