4 Custom Wedding Flower Bouquets

"Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light." – Theodore Roethke Flowers have a language all their own—they’re given as gifts, as declarations of love, and as symbols of things left unsaid. In the form of a wedding flower bouquet, they can also serve as a beautiful and meaningful addition to your big day. To help you find your bridal bouquet style, we partnered with Rebecca DePasquale of woman-owned studio RAM Floral to create four custom arrangements for classic, romantic, modern, and bohemian brides. “I pick everything with intent,” Rebecca says. “Florals tell a story and have a calligraphy to them. They’re incredibly personal.” Discover her wedding bouquet ideas below, then read on for our Q&A on all things flowers.

Q&A: Rebecca Depasquale of RAM Florals

Q: Tell us how you got started!

A: “I was always an artist looking for my medium. I started putting together flowers for friends’ weddings and was like, ‘Oh…this is it!’ and found ways to do it more. I went to work for my friend at a Brooklyn plant shop and we created florals for this huge event, working almost 48 hours straight on these huge, sea-inspired designs. Eventually, I realized this was what I wanted to do and made the choice to be a full-time florist. I don’t exactly want to run a retail shop, the goal is to create for weddings…I just love love stories.”

Q: How do you plan the florals for a wedding?

A: “I create a mood board—instead of asking the couple to tell me what do, I ask them to inspire me so I can pick pieces with intent. They’re the muse, I’m the artist! More than anything, I want them to tell me what they love and don’t love so I can come up with a mood board to create an aesthetic. We can build from there instead of duplicating something. It helps them to trust that I understand their vision and inspiration!”

Q: What are the best flowers for each season?

A: “For spring, you want ranunculus, peonies and tulips! Summer is perfect for dahlias. During fall and winter, you’re not going to be able to get the variety you want from local flowers—people tend to gravitate toward dried flowers with garden roses since they’re year-round! Pampas grass and smokebush are beautiful, unexpected pieces as well.”

Q: What’s your dream floral moment?

A: “I would love to do a NYFW runway—bridal fashion week would be cool! I loved how the Grammys did a floral ceiling installation this year, any type of massive installation piece would be amazing.”
