Handmade Non-Floral Bouquets
Face it girls, we love flowers and we want lots of beautiful blooms around us at our wedding (I know I did!). However, there are many smart reasons for having a flowerless wedding.
For one, it’s eco-friendly. Lots of brides are already choosing to go flower-less because doing so cuts back on the use of pollutants and fertilizers.
For another, it’s inexpensive. Rather than spending good money on fresh flowers whose shining moment will only last until the last of your guests have gone, use it for your honeymoon instead.
What’s more, you get to keep your unique, nonfloral bouquet as a keepsake plus your guests can take the centerpieces home as favors.
(And if you still can’t get over the idea of getting married without real flowers at all, why not hold your ceremony outdoors in a garden? That way, you can still be surrounded by flowers when you march down the aisle!)
If the reasons I mentioned above still haven’t convinced you to go the non-flower route, maybe the following gorgeous and creative non floral wedding bouquets will help you decide. The handmade feel of these bouquets make them perfect focal points in vintage and handmade weddings.
