Prefer blossoms that make a unique statement? Anemones may be the answer. Carry them down the aisle or add them to your reception table. Virtually scentless, their aroma won’t compete with your cuisine. This London bride carries a bantam bouquet, tied simply with a blue-and-white striped ribbon.

If you’re planning your “I dos” for late-fall or winter, look to frilly cyclamen, which thrives in cooler climes. Diminutive and delicate, they are best kept loose or they may lose their shape if paired with other blossoms.
