Nonfloral Wedding Bouquets

 

  

  Save some money on the bridal bouquets with creative ideas to create unique bouquets without flowers.  Use elegant fabric flowers on a copper wire to create a bouquet that coordinates with your wedding décor and colors.  Blooms easily created from ribbon in a variety of textures, widths, and weaves are a lifelike alternative to real flowers as well.  For a beach wedding, use colorful seashells to create a bouquet.  A special way to create a nonfloral bouquet is to use a collection of brooches.  Use vintage enamel-flower brooches and arrange them to create an eclectic bouquet.  Have all the ladies in your family and friends circle contribute to this bouquet with an antique brooch that they may have.  For a spring or garden wedding use faux butterflies to create a colorful butterfly bouquet.  Use silk or feather butterflies on thin wire that are available in many colors to create a floating flutter of butterflies in a bouquet.  Paper bouquets are a classic, but this old method of an inexpensive bouquet of flowers can become a very modern paper bouquet of flowers when done right.  Use paper bells to turn into vivacious flowers.  The trick to make this bouquet pop is to use several tones of one color.  Another very creative idea is to use beads to create flower petals and then bunch them together for a bouquet.  Glass beads create a very expensive look.  These non flower bouquets will add a creative touch to your wedding.  They are simple to make and with a few supplies you can make a lovely bouquet with your own hands in a short period of time for your wedding.  Keeping your bouquet different from the bride’s maids is also important and creating your own nonfloral bouquet is a perfect way to do this, however keeping with the theme make sure to have unique bouquets for the bride’s maids as well.  Think about glowing lanterns that allow attendants to light up the aisle instead of traditional flowers.

The Baroque style is from 17th century Europe and creates an old world theme.  Picture frames and place card holders in the Baroque design are simply elegant.

The Fleur-de-Lis is a symbol of honor and elegance and brings European refinement to a wedding reception.  Favor tags stamped with this design and wedding favors that are marked with the Fleur-de-Lis symbol will be magnificent.
