Alternative and non traditional wedding bouquets

Many brides have their reasons to use an alternative to fresh flowers. Below are a few ideas to get you going. Most of these ideas can be done way ahead of the day saving you lots of stress. So get DIYing and if you are doing anything different be sure to let us know.
Wrist corsage

Wrist corsages are similar to a bracelet which is decorated with flowers. It could be fresh or fabric flowers. With the wide choice of flowers, beads and accessories available this is great as a DIY project and if you choose fabric flowers, wrist corsages can be made well in advance and set aside for the big day.

Candy bouquets Little girls in the wedding party are sure to love these edible cookie bouquets from More than just cakes. Not only do they look pretty they are different to the normal bouquets and could also be part of the flowergirls gifts.

brooch bouquets

Then we have the brooch bouquet. These bouquets are made of vintage, sparkly brooches, the kind the older generation used to wear. If you were able to collect a variety of different brooches you would be sure to have a one of a kind bouquet. This is another wedding keepsake that goes on forever. Source: TopLeft, right

Paper flower wedding bouquets

Paper flowers are always in season. You can pick your colours to get exactly the shade you need. They won’t fade or die and you have paper flowers to decorate gifts long after the wedding day. Source: Left and Right

    This is such a cool blog! I can’t believe I didn’t know about it before. Love that delightful candy spread with the jars and photo frames and everything. Many grooms probably disagree, but pink is such a perfect colour for a wedding!

    Yummy! No wonder these are popular, who doesn’t love candy?

    I’ve seen quite a few brooch bouquets but I would have never of thought up the lolly pop one. It would be great for a wedding that has a fairground theme or Charley and the chocolate factory.
