Why spend a couple of hundred dollars on your wedding bouquet, when you can make it a little more personal. Adding your own personal style, and flair to your wedding bouquet really makes it special. The best part is that the options listed below are easy to create yourself.
A visit to your local arts and crafts store will give you plenty of options to choose from. You can pick and choose what colors you want, and which flowers look more real than artificial. If you are going with artificial flowers remember that you can keep these flowers as a nice keepsake for years after your wedding. The key is to find flowers that do not look too plastic like. It may also be a good idea to take a friend along with you to help get another viewpoint on the flowers that you are going to be choosing. There are also plenty of YouTube videos that you can watch to show you how to put these flowers together.
If you are going for more of a vintage look, than you can try to add a few vintage brooches to your wedding bouquet. This will give it a truly nice look. You can rearrange the brooches until it looks exactly the way you want it to look. Even adding pearls to the vintage bouquet will help it have a nice older look to it.
Succulent DIY Bouquets
I love the way succulents look, if you take the tops of the succulent type plants you can easily make them into a beautiful bouquet. If you buy a few succulent plants you can put your bouquet together the night before the wedding, so that they are fresh and looking great. If you take the tops and then use some beautiful ribbon to wrap the bottoms together. It will look unique and really beautiful.
Sea Shell Bouquet
If you are planning a beach wedding, then why not have a sea shell bouquet made. You can put one together yourself, which is not difficult to do. You will need to glue them together so that it will not break apart, and then shape them in a way you can easily carry them. Be sure to add a little bit of greenery to the sea shells as well. I have found that different size sea shells will work well for this type of projects.
Different Bouquet for each person
I really love the idea of having each person in the bridal party with a different bouquet as they walk down the isle. Each one can have a different color or style that goes along with your overall wedding day theme. You can even have each person carry a single flower like a rose, or another type of your favorite flower for the wedding day.
