Y’all know we loves us some alternative non-floral bouquets. Y’all know we don’t think anyone has to carry a bouquet at ALL, let alone a floral bouquet. We thought we’d seen it all: brooch bouquets, book bouquets (BOOK-quets), tambourines, stuffed animals, Barbie dolls, cotton candy, pinwheels, and more… But this is the first time we’ve seen dagger bridesmaid bouquets!
If you’re asking yourself “Do I even need a wedding bouquet?” here’s a shareable list of reasons for and against bouquets, along with some interesting bouquet alternatives.
What if you stepped away from real flowers and saw what other alternative wedding bouquets were out there? We’re not strangers to non-floral bouquets, but I wanted to expand my search into a few newer territories: fruits, candy, pearls, beads, wheat, paper, balloons, fans, buttons, brooches, wooden flowers, felt, and more.
I cannot stop thinking of ways to gift these GORGEOUS handmade galaxy purses: for your bridesmaids, to hold instead of bouquets, to hold your makeup/lip gloss/tampons/whatever, your something blue(!).
They’d be perfect for a colorful wedding, sci-fi, space, or science-themed wedding, and any mystical theme. I pretty much just want to own all of them and think they’d make a lot of people flip their lids, so I’m sharing them.
Have we got a killer wedding coming up later this week for you, but I couldn’t wait to share this one particular detail with you. The bridesmaids had TAMBOURINE BOUQUETS! We love us some non-floral bouquet ideas, and this one is just so rad. Imagine walking down the aisle, gently shaking the tambourines and making such a lovely sound. Guh. Love. The best part? This was a DIY project by the bride and her crew. There’s a whole lot more DIY magic in store when we share the full wedding. Watch this space!
Brittany and Taylor’s goth history nerd wedding featured a pretty spectacular way to honor ALL of your friends during what’s sometimes an awkward moment at the reception. Brittany’s bouquet toss was for anyone, no matter what their marital status or future plans. Instead of tossing a bouquet (which in this case was a kick-ass SHELL bouquet!), Brittany decided to throw a plush cat. You’ll want to see why.
