wedding forecast by JM :: trend in flowerless bouquets


"Seeing a trend in creative flowerless bouquets"
We at B&W love hand made wedding details. We've blogged about products sold on Etsy.com, an accessible outlet for originality, uniqueness and customization. But there are other wonderful artists who have set up shop on their own; it's just a matter of finding these gems through creative searches online. With Charmae’s recent posts on PrinceDesign UK and winter wedding essentials, I thought it would be perfect to incorporate my blog about trends in flowerless bouquets that I discovered on the web.

With shifts to the more modern approach and brides' yearn to have her big day purely original and personal, choosing the perfect bouquet is as important as choosing the dress. Imagine the statement you’ll make as you walk down with a non-floral, non-traditional bouquet and the compliments you’ll receive when flaunted in your photography session. There is a wide range of elegant sans-botanical alternatives to fresh flowers. The possibilities are endless and the result will be timeless.

The advantages to the flowerless bouquet are that it will not be susceptible to wilting, drying or fading AND you'll be doing your part as a “green” bride, enjoying the fact that you've spent money on something you can keep forever or even reuse. It can be used for several purposes after your big day: throw it in a vase as a centerpiece for your dining table, place it on bookcase shelf in your living room, display it like an art piece and hang it on your wall, or even pass it on to another bride as a tradition. Regardless of what you do, its versatility will make it an absolute conversation piece and special keepsake, and its ability to outlive real flowers will give you more opportunities to use it over and over.

Here are some categorized ideas for non-floral bouquets.
