Have you considered felt wedding bouquets for your upcoming day? While the idea of using felt may not have crossed your mind, we think it is a fun idea definitely worth consideration. If your heart is already set on carrying a fresh flower bouquet down the aisle, there are plenty of ways to use felt wedding bouquets on your special day. The lovely Cole of Handmade Colectibles, Featured Artisan in The Marketplace, has perfected her green crafting thumb to create beautiful felt wedding bouquets in any color of the rainbow to tie into your color palette perfectly. These felt bouquets, unlike fresh flowers that wilt, will last forever and can be used as decor in your home after you say “I Do”. Read on to find out five ways to use felt wedding bouquets for your day and check out tons of inspiration from this lovely shop!
5 Ways to Use Felt Wedding Bouquets
1. Carry felt bouquets in lieu of fresh flowers down the aisle.
This is the most popular way to use felt bouquets but still worth noting. Instead of fresh flowers, carry a beautiful handmade felt wedding bouquet down the aisle in any color you choose. Gift your bridesmaids with felt bouquets to carry which can be saved as a keepsake for years to come. Plus, no one will be allergic to the bouquets and break out into hives, always a plus.
2. Wear as a wrist corsage for your wedding rehearsal.
Wear a wrist corsage of felt flowers down the aisle at your rehearsal or gift these corsages to your mother, mother in law, grandmother, special aunt, etc. to wear instead of a fresh floral corsage. This one will last forever and can be placed in a jewelry box.
3. Display as bridal shower or wedding reception centerpieces.
Deck out your centerpieces with felt bouquets instead of fresh! At bridal showers, for instance, one guest at each table always goes home with the centerpiece (we’ve all been there!); give the gift of these forever blooms which will never wilt and can be enjoyed in a pretty vase for years to come.
4. Use as ceremony decoration down the aisle or secured to chairs.
Add miniature felt bouquets to mason jars and place down the aisle or wrap a bouquet in ribbon and secure to the end of a pew. These flowers require no refrigeration so you can decorate well in advance and never worry about wilting down the aisleway.
5. Toss a felt bouquet at your reception.
Instead of a fresh flower bouquet, toss a felt bouquet. The lucky girl who catches the bouquet can keep it forever and, who knows, maybe she’ll even carry the bouquet down the aisle on her wedding day!
