Trend: Eccentric Bouquets

It’s Rochelle with an innovative and eccentric trend rising in the wedding industry! We all know that flowers are a big part of the budget, but there are alternative options to choose from that are much friendlier to your pocket. 

Did you know that the bridal bouquet originally consisted of garlic, herbs and spices to ward off evil spirits? It wasn’t until the marriage of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, did it get replaced with fresh flowers. In today’s time, the bouquet is decided by the colors and season of the wedding, but wouldn’t it be nice to keep the bouquet for years to come?

Wedding planners and brides are coming up with fabulous ideas to make their wedding one of kind while still keeping to the budget. I have found some of the more popular alternative bouquets being used today.
Our May bride, Emily, made her own bouquet along with ALL the flowers for her wedding out of sheet music! Here is a look at her creativity.

Below are some more beautiful bouquets created out of fabric that look just like the real thing.

My favorite eccentric bouquets are the brooch bouquets! So pretty!   

If you want to add some excitement to your bouquet, add some feathers to the mix.!

Lastly, are unique ideas like a pinwheel bouquet and other items to replace a traditional floral bouquet. 

 In Springfield, there is a small business that creates eccentric bouquets out of scrapbook and tissue paper and fabric.  They are called Flowers Now and Forever and you can see more of their work on their Facebook Page.
