Faux Flower Bouquets: Yay or Nay?

Faux Flower Bouquets

Unlike fresh flowers, faux bouquets will never wilt; they last forever. Your bouquet becomes a lasting heirloom instead of a temporary purchase. If you’re allergic to fresh flowers, a bouquet alternative won’t make your nose run or your eyes itch. And, any type of bloom is in season for silk blooms year-round!

1. Brooch Bouquet

A brooch bouquet is constructed with antique brooches and wire to form a ‘bouquet’. This is my favorite bouquet alternative style; where was it when I tied the knot? By The Ritzy Rose.

2. Button Bouquet

The button bouquet is another brilliant idea and similar to the brooch bouquet. Instead of brooches, buttons are used. This bouquet is by Lillybuds and I simply adore it.

I am making my own bouquet! I always knew that i was going to have a faux bouquet because of my allergies. who wants to be a teary eyed sneezing mess on their wedding day? not this girl!

I was very lucky in winning a pair of amazing shoe clips from the ever amazing Emici Bridal and to me they were just too pretty to be on my shoes and hidden by my dress so much of the time. That got me thinking how to use them in a more visible way and my idea to make a fabric flower… Read more »

I am actually not carrying anything down the aisle! However, my bridesmaids will be carrying wreaths of boxwood on burlap ribbon.

I made my own bouquet with flowers from IKEA and pearl clusters that I made while sitting around. I loved how my bouquet came out and I also love the fact that I can keep it forever. Not to mention it was only $30 total to make. Cant beat that!

Heather, Great idea! IKEA offers high-quality flowers (at an affordable price, too). Do you keep it displayed in your home? Wow, $30 – definitely can’t beat that. Thanks for sharing!

I havent found a place for it yet (we just moved) but I am have the perfect vase for it to keep on display. I created a lot of our wedding decor that could double as home decor so I wouldnt feel so bad for spending money on little things

Great idea! It definitely makes the most of your budget that way.

Oh I’m in love with the peonies and the wooden ones! Too pretty!

July 12, 2013 11:29 am

I’m glad you like them! The wooden ones are so unique; I’m really loving sola flowers lately. The peonies look so real! I like how they’re cupped, too. Peonies year-round? Sign me up! :) Thanks for stopping by.
