either. How about table centerpieces for any occasion? Or a
special quincenara bouquet?
How To Make A Wedding Bouquet
That Is Interesting And Unusual
by Peta D'Silva
Have you ever noticed how most bouquets look the same? Sure, they look
beautiful, but they don't really have much variety. They usually
contain flowers and some type of greenery. But who ever said that
bouquets only had to contain flowers and greenery? Why can't they
contain something a bit more exciting?
Like what? I can hear you asking. Well you can try anything really, it is only limited by your imagination.
Most brides spend hours thinking about what flowers they want in their
bouquets and then what flowers they want as accents to the focal
I wonder what what would happen if they had something else to choose from, instead of just flowers?
Does the person you are making the bouquet for have a favourite thing
that they would love to carry down the aisle? You should always
ask your bride what they would like in their bouquet because it doesn't
have to be flowers.
There are plenty of other things you can add, such as:
- toy cars
- toy trains
- toy aeroplanes
- miniature teddy bears
- small dolls
- plastic horses, cats, dogs, or birds
Some other things you could add include candy, chocolates, bubble gum,
fruit, vegetables, cup cakes etc. For my own wedding, I am adding
lollipops to my bouquet!
You probably think I've gone mad! But trust me, people liked to have
choice and they like to feel that they are different and unusual!
And adding interesting objects to the bouquet can be a good way to get
the groom more involved with the wedding. For example, if the groom is
a pilot, or likes cars, how about adding some toy planes or toy cars to
the bouquet? This is sure to get him more involved!
Not all brides will want to do this, but it certainly doesn't hurt to
have more choice! And just because you are adding a few different
things doesn't mean you still can't have flowers. All you do is combine
the two, for example, you could have seven teddy bears and nine roses.
It's really up to the person getting married.
As you know, weddings can be very stressful and taxing. So why not
lighten things up a little and give people something to talk about for
years to come?
