Hi, lovelies! I was talking to one of our brides (hi, Esme!) about her upcoming wedding as part of our new online bridal consulting (yay!) She asked me what my favorite trend right now is for wedding flowers, and the answer was super-easy: pampas grass bouquets!
I’ve always been a fan of natural botanicals, sola flowers, dried or pressed flowers, and billy balls; so, when pampas grass for wedding decor became such a big trend last year, I knew it was only a matter of time before we were blessed with pampas grass bouquet ideas popping up on our feeds. :)
She was intrigued; she also admires natural botanical flowers as I do, and she was looking for: “something that lasts after the wedding” so she can use it as home decor. Pampas grass bouquets are perfect for this very reason!
You’re going to spend a portion of your budget on wedding flowers anyway, so why not find an alternative to fresh blooms that can truly last? Money well-spent, I say!
In this way, your pampas grass bouquet — and the bouquets of bridesmaids, if you opt for that route, too — will serve as a beautiful arrangement at home for years to come.
To help Esme in her search for the best pampas bouquets for weddings, we’ve rounded up our favorites from the expert in the field: Hidden Botanics. If you’re not familiar with her work yet, get ready to be inspired! She’ll be your new favorite Etsy shop for botanical pampas bouquet bouquets and natural arrangements for home decor.
Let’s take a look!
Pampas Grass Bouquet
1. Pampas Bouquet with Palm Spears
Ooh, this bouquet is the one that inspired me for this entire blog feature. It is made with preserved pampas grass, palm spears, and eternal blossom hydrangea. My goodness! These dried pampas grasses and natural adornments are available in three different sizes: small, medium, and large. We recommend the large pampas bouquet for brides to carry, medium for bridesmaids, and perhaps the small pampas bouquet for the flower girl to hold or carry.
2. Silk Peony Flowers and Pampas Grass
Ooh, you know how I feel about pink anything — and peony anything! This is a perfect combination of silk flowers and pampas grass for a one-of-a-kind boho bridal bouquet.
3. Dried Grasses
If I had to predict one of the most sought-after pampas grass bouquets for weddings in 2021, THIS is the one I think boho brides will be choosing! It is made with dried pampas grass and dried flowers, known as The Pampas and Prairie Bouquet. Love it!
4. Palm Spear
If you’re crazy about palm spears — another big trend we’re seeing for natural botanical bouquets — then this is the arrangement for you!
5. White Orchids and Pampas Grasses
Is there a prettier combination and more bridal than this?! A hand-picked arrangement of white orchids and pampas grass made for the bride-to-be.
A pretty bouquet of purples in soft lilac, accompanied by pampas, is a stunning combination.
7. Wildflower Dried Protea Bouquet
With burnt orange and red pampas grass, a dried protea, and wildflowers, this is an autumn bride-to-be’s bouquet dream come true!
8. Spring Silk and Grass Bouquet
A mixture of bright yellow stems and silk flowers, paired with dried pampas grass, makes this bouquet a one-of-a-kind style for the bride at the wedding and beyond. I would get this one just for home decor for spring: it’s such a pretty pop of color!
9. Peach Peony Bouquet
Peach peonies + pampas grass = another favorite of mine! This is a bouquet for any bride who wants to incorporate flowers — silk, yet they look so lifelike! — into her floral design.
10. Blush Pink Rose
This is a wildly popular bouquet for good reason: a soft shade of pink ties into the natural fluffy pampas grass stems so beautifully here.
11. Fluffy Pampas Bouquet
If you love super-fluffy pampas bouquets, check out this stylish arrangement! I love this one.
12. Autumnal Pumpkin and Pampas
What a stunning combination for fall: I enjoy the addition of the pumpkin for an unexpected accent, along with the real pampas grass for adornment.
13. Prairie Orange
Orange is everywhere this year! This is a stylish combination of neutral beige paired with orange for a little pop of color.
14. Natural Baby’s Breath
Pampas grass, natural baby’s breath, and a palm spear. Bam! This is a combination I could get used to as bouquets and home decor, all year long.
15. Palm Spear Bouquet
Large palm spears, pampas grass, and, yes, elegantly preserved hydrangea. What a combination!
16. All White Pampas Grass Bouquets
