Who needs flowers when tambourine bouquets are a thing?

Have we got a killer Half Moon Bay wedding coming up later this week for you full of loveliness, 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 to represent the musical portion of the theme. There's a whole lot more DIY magic in store (think embroidery hoops, bud vases, and even coffee beans as decor) when we share Angelica and Brian's full wedding later this week. The ceremony backdrop alone may give you heart palpitations. Watch this space!

Shake it, ladies… literally. Also OMG yellow mismatched dresses FTW.

I love how they're distinct from the bride's floral bouquet. Matchy without being too matchy. So perf.

More bouquets that aren't flowers!

Are you ready for the rest of this boho chic wedding in Half Moon Bay? It's a doozy.

  1. So nice! Now I'm wondering whether my bridesmaids could carry hand bells, keeping them silent on the way in but ringing them on the way out.
