A growing trend in flower arrangements is forsaking the flower for succulents. They are gorgeous and can be potted after the ceremony. Traditionally flowers are fresh and real but I have seen a number of brides opt for a bouquet that lasts forever. You can make your own at Michael's or other hobby shops or shop online for pre-made bouquets. Both of these options are great for people who want the flowers to last forever or who have allergies. If you decide to toss the flowers to an eager maiden she may love the idea of potting succulents that last assuming they increase her chances of proposal.
Choosing flowers out of season or rare will play a huge role in the cost of this beautiful bouquet. I recommend a choosing from a seasonal flower. Choosing flowers in season will keep the costs significantly low. Think of flowers that will really look great in photos. What will pop or look amazing when taking pictures? You will have tons of photos and there will be more than a few that feature your bouquet.
Size or portion will be a factor in the type of flowers you decide on. If your dress is simple you may want to go big. If you have a beautiful beading or pattern on your dress that you would like to show off or draw attention to don't let your bouquet outshine you. Opt for a smaller bouquet.
If you have smaller hands or plan to take millions of wedding photos you may opt for a smaller bouquet. It will need to fit comfortably in your hands.
Flowers can match your bridesmaids dresses or your shoes to match your color theme.
You can also consider destinations. If you have a tropical wedding opting for a tropical bouquet will bring harmony to your look.

This is pretty simple. Choose a bouquet with a fragrance you wouldn't mind smelling all day. You don't want it to over power your senses. Choosing a lightly fragrant arrangement is highly recommended.
