As dresses, veils and even shoes are becoming more unusual and elaborate it is no surprise that bouquets are following suit to complement unique wedding themes. Flowers are no longer en vogue; instead all manner of materials can be used to create a bouquet that is eye catching and can be treasured as a keepsake from your day.
Fabric flowers are soft, light and just as dainty as the real thing without the worry of fresh flowers staying pristine; the inclusion of pearls, beads and taffeta also allow brides to customise the bouquet to set off details within the dress or other aspects of attire – including the bridesmaids or groomsmen.
By incorporating many different styles, shapes the alternative bouquets have more versatility. The button bouquets are a stunning way to introduce a colour theme – be it pastels, autumn or ice white for a Christmas wedding – the use of buttons and tulle creates a lovely sculpted shape. These bouquets also offer the opportunity for the DIY bride to become even more involved; sourcing the materials, deciding on composition and colour scheme and even the construction of the bouquet can be done at home with the right tools, a bit of knowhow and lots of patience!
The brooch bouquets are especially for our brides that are like magpies! Everything that sparkles and shines can be included in these bouquets and the more mismatched the collection, the more interesting and diverse the bouquet! The collection of brooches, buttons and gemstones create a unique style that eliminates any necessity for further accessories to complement your gown. Even more excitingly, the scrapbook nature of the brooch bouquets can cover old, new, borrowed and blue in one sweep!
