Flowers are a very noticeable part of a wedding and one of the costliest portions of your budget. Many brides look for small ways to show bits of their personality. Unique bouquets are one way to do so while cutting down on the price.
If you want to stay close to tradition, wear a cuff made of real flowers. You won’t have to worry about holding on to anything and your arm will be adorned by a gorgeous floral bracelet that can even take the place of jewelry.
A great idea you can do on your own (without requiring much craftsmanship) is a felt bouquet. A quick internet search will find you realistic patterns to parse through. They can also be purchased for a minimal cost and make for great keepsakes.
If eco-friendly is important to you, wood may be your perfect match. Aside from appearing real and being sustainable, almost any type of flower can be simulated. Scents can also be applied that add a wonderful aroma to your venue.
With your invitations, include an envelope for each guest to send you a button, broach, pin etc. they want to gift you. With wire, a bouquet holder, floral tape, ribbon, the pieces you were sent and a little patience in placement, a one-of-a-kind bouquet will be the result. FYI, you may want to purchase some fun pieces to fill in empty spots if needed.
Those mentioned are solely a few ways to stand out and have fun while doing so. Any can be DIY projects or purchased for small fees. All will last forever and hold special meaning because it is guaranteed that they won’t be duplicated.
