What are some less common used flowers that are stunning? I want something a bit different and I'm having a hard time finding anything. Open to all colours and styles.

I have no idea!

But, one thing you could do is google 'flowers'. That will bring up a whole heap of sites that will show you a wide variety.

Good luck!
Someday everything will all make perfect sense... So for now laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason...

Karry (another I-Doer) had some gorgeous funky flowers.

In the 'General Wedding Related Discussion' forum, there's a post in which everyone has posted their wedding flowers, perhaps you could have a look at that?

You could have succulents in your bouquet or native flowers

I'm having magnolias and pussy willow in mine.

I originally wanted magnolias, but fell in love with another bouquet

The berries and chilli idea sounds great! I had to google magnolias because even they I have heard of them before I have never seen them..so pretty, like the ones with a bit of pink in them. I'm going to google natives and "flowers" now. Thanks everyone. :-)

I had natives and proteas in my bouquet, and my girls had a mini-king protea surrounded my natives.

My bouquet.

I didn't see the actual bouquets until the day (or my proteas). I just told her what flowers, and an idea for girls, and voila!! I was very impressed!!

One of the flowers in our bouquets was called a "Blushing Bride".

They look stunning as the only flower in a bouquet (if I had've found this picture before the wedding, this would've been my bouquet).

Definitely unique.

I'm using pretty ordinary flowers in my bouquet, roses and lillies. Yet to give it a modern look, i'm having a few feathers and green berries. The picture i have of it looks really good.

or if you don't want flowers, you could have crystal bouquets.
