Unique bridal bouquets

Your wedding day is one of the only times you'll get to carry a gorgeous bouquet of flowers (unless of course you are crowned Miss America).  There are so many options for beautiful bouquets, but this blog post is going to focus on unique bouquets, something a little different than the standard hand-tied blooms or cascades that are so prevalent in many weddings today.   Read on for some inspiration for unusual bridal bouquets.

Blue Petyl makes these absolutely gorgeous Brooch Bouquet creations from gemstones and brooches, all handmade into one-of-a-kind bouquets.  Each bouquet can be customized to match the colors of your wedding.  They'll even add a locket to the handle of your bouquet, so you can add a picture of your groom, or perhaps a loved one who has passed on. 

What I love most about these elegant Blue Petyl bouquets is that you can keep them forever.  Even though there are wedding bouquet preservation services, fresh flowers never seem to look as perfect as they do the first day.  Plus, after the wedding who wants to worry about taking your flowers to be preserved when you're rushing off to your honeymoon?  Either you'll have to deal with it, or designate someone else to.  These unique creations can be handed down through the generations and become a family heirloom.

Style Me Pretty is a bridal inspiration site where you can make your own inspiration boards.  Think of it as a Pinterest just for brides.  You can search by keywords or categories.  Doing a search on wedding flowers, I found these unusual bouquets and created this board:

So many beautiful bouquets!  The simple single bloom really makes a statement, yet it's soft and pretty because of the type of flower and color.  The coral pink/red and white bouquet is actually made from paper and would make for a lovely keepsake.  The hanging bouquet is called a Pomander, or a Kissing Ball, and is so adorable. While I don't think it would make a good bridal bouquet, it would be beautiful for your bridesmaids and flower girl.  And who wouldn't love a bouquet of lavender?  Click here to view the board on Style Me Pretty and for more information on each of the photos.
