Adding drama, color, texture, and personality to your wedding bouquet does not always require a big budget. Many accents can be natural elements, small decorative objects, handmade items, theme-related pieces, or meaningful personal mementos. You can also make the flowers with fabric and even paper. Your bouquet is also a great place to incorporate the traditional "something blue" as you walk down the aisle. Our galleries below will give you plenty of ideas and inspiration to make your wedding bouquet a dazzling and unique creation!
RHINESTONE & CRYSTAL ACCENTS
Glam up your evening wedding look with a touch of bling! Sparkling items such as rhinestone picks, brooches, and buckles make for gorgeous bouquet accents and create the wow factor for even modest floral bouquets.
Adding natural items to your bouquet brings a calming, earthy feel to your design. Consider items like shells, starfish, pine cones, feathers, pearls, raffia, rope, etc. which are best for beach, vintage or rustic style wedding themes.
SOMETHING BLUE CHARMS & MEMENTOS
Bouquet charms are a unique way to add that important "touch-of-blue" to your wedding day look and memorial/photo charms can have loved ones past and present "walk" down the aisle with you. They make wonderful keepsakes after the wedding too!
RIBBON, FABRIC & LACE
Once you know what style bouquet you are having, coordinate the stem decorations for a pulled-together look. Stem wraps can be made of lace, burlap, fabric, ribbon, etc. Add other decorations such as a pendant, sequin ribbon, brooch or vintage key for a touch of whimsy.
Handmade flowers are a perfect way to personalize your bouquet. You can also keep it forever or reuse the "blooms" in your home decor. There are hundreds of DIY tutorials available online to help you make gorgeous designs like these out of felt, fabric and even paper!
BEADS, PEARLS & BUTTONS
More fun ways to add excitement to your bouquet is the addition of pearls, beads and buttons. There are endless ways to use them either on the handle or intertwined with the flowers. Use them for a pop of color and texture or to add dimension and movement to an otherwise ordinary design.
