Many brides consider floral bouquets a must have for their wedding day. They picture themselves—and their gorgeous bridesmaids—walking down the aisle with beautiful flower arrangements and wouldn’t have it any other way.
While it’s true that flowers are a great, time-tested decoration for weddings, they aren’t the right choice for everyone. Some brides want a more unique look, and some can’t stomach spending so much for flowers that will be thrown away after a single use.
With the sprawling gardens at The Park Savoy Estate, there will be plenty of natural elements for your guests to ogle. Your wedding day is the time to express yourself and if floral bouquets don’t feel right, there are many alternatives out there. Why not put a fun twist on traditional floral bouquets and really make your wedding stand out?
From classic and elegant to romantic and chic, here are 5 alternatives to traditional flower bouquets for your wedding day:
1) Paper Flower Bouquets
Okay, we admit that this one isn’t too original. However, for the budget conscious bride, paper flower bouquets provide a creative twist on the classic floral bouquet. You’d be surprised how real these paper bouquets look, and you’ll be even happier with the lower cost. If you, or someone in your bridal party is crafty, this could be a fun DIY project that will serve as a memento for years to come.
2) Adorable Oversized Pinwheels
This is another inexpensive option to replace floral bouquets. Pinwheels can be a festive way to add color and inject some fun into your ceremony. These are a great option for outdoor weddings. They can also create more space in your budget for other upgrades, like a martini bar, sushi station or lighting enhancements for your reception.
3) Elegant Feather Bouquets
Incorporating feather bouquets into your wedding ceremony is fantastic for adding elegance in the absence of traditional bridal bouquets. You can find beautiful, colorful feathers and ribbons right at your local craft store and have your bridal party over for a night of crafting. If you want to leave it to the professionals to create stunning feather bouquets, there are plenty of options online.
4) Charming Wrist Corsages
Corsages aren’t just for the mothers of the bride and groom anymore. If you are looking for a way to incorporate flowers on a budget, consider getting your bridesmaids delicate wrist corsages. These aren’t your standard prom corsages either. The hands-free floral option ranges from romantic roses, to vibrant statement flowers that incorporate your wedding colors flawlessly.
5) Rustic Lanterns
If you are looking to add romance to your wedding, having your bridesmaids carry rustic chic lanterns is one way to do so. It might seem a bit unorthodox, but this trend is becoming increasingly popular, especially for winter weddings or ceremonies that are held later in the day. Plus, they make fun keepsakes after the wedding!
