Paper, silk, brooches, and dried flowers: alternative wedding bouquets that will last forever

We've been featuring non-floral bouquets made of paper flowers, silk flowers, brooches, dried flowers, leather flowers, buttons, and more for YEARS. And with good reason: they last forever, can be much cheaper than real flower bouquets, and can be passed along to others. Win-win. I decided to see what was new in the market for artificial flower bouquets and other materials that can make up that thing you can hold down the aisle… if you wan to. I know, it's both optional and something I LOVE.

Let's explore the market for alternative wedding bouquets that will last forever…

We're mad as hatters for this Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding in Greece

Konstantina rocked a colorful polka dot wedding dress, light blue wedding shoes, and a super colorful bouquet that channeled Alice in Wonderland. If that's not enough to get you all in, I don't know what will. But we're going to try! The groom, Giannis, took the reins in planning the Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding down to the ideas, photos, and details. They were going for magical over childish, and totally succeeded.

The centerpieces were hats, characters, and candies in lieu of flowers. There were pastel cupcakes, a topsy-turvy cake, "drink me" bottles, clocks, Cheshire Cats, and a rockin' time all around at this wedding in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Cotton candy, smoke bombs, and LED outfits shine at this wonderfully weird Austin wedding

Can you even handle LED outfits, costumed guests, Voodoo Doughnuts, a multicolored reception dress, jackalope riding, a 50 beer flight reception, and a Pac-Man suit? If you dare, take a look at this awesomely weird Austin wedding.

Oh, and they had the most wild "lessons learned" EVER. It involved cotton candy, Golden Corral, murals, smoke bombs, and the word "cock." Yep, seriously. And it's actually super helpful. You HAVE to see this… and read to the end.

This Disney Bounding-inspired wedding makes us ALL live happily ever after

This Disney Bounding-themed wedding had gorgeous Disney-inspired decor like painted pumpkins, colored glass, and trinkets a-plenty. The decor was Disney Bounding-inspired, which means it's Disney-themed and subtle (to get around Disney's no-costume rule!). Think Disney cosplay-lite but applied to a wedding. The magic without the actual characters.

I'm going to let you do the searching for all the references at this Disney Bounding-inspired wedding.

We wished upon a star and got this trinket-covered Disney-themed bouquet

You're going to witness a seriously magical Disney Bounding-themed wedding on the blog tomorrow, but we couldn't wait to share the bride's trinket-covered, bedazzled Disney-themed bouquet first. It's covered in baubles and jewels and goodies, oh my! Think Alice in Wonderland clocks, Cinderella's castle pins, Beast's rose in jar, and so many more little lovelies to behold.
