Alternatives to a Floral Wedding Bouquet

Carrying a floral wedding bouquet is the most common choice for brides. However you may prefer to carry something different. Not to worry – there are many other options that may work for you.

If you have floral related allergies, silk or paper flowers are a wonderful option, and won’t leave you red eyed and sniffling.

Brooch bouquets are also a beautiful alternative to fresh flowers. To make it extra special include brooches given to you by family members.

Or you can abandon flowers all together and carry a bouquet of feathers, or strands of crystals or origami birds.

A pretty fan, a special bible, or a small clutch are also lovely non-flower alternatives.

Look into ethnic or cultural wedding traditions. Irish customs call for the bride to carry a horseshoe for good luck (with the open end up so the luck doesn’t run out).

For a more whimsical bouquet, how about a lollipop arrangement in the colors of your wedding, or a pretty bouquet made out of fabric roses? To make it even more special have fabric roses out of vintage fabrics, scarves, or even neckties from someone dear to you.

Of course, you could elect to carry nothing at all. It is your choice.
