I love handmade bridal bouquets for many reasons but my favorite is the non-throw-away factor. I selected real flowers for my wedding since at that time, I had no idea about buttons, brooches, fabric, feathers, and blooms as viable options… I was a bit of a bridal bouquet virgin. So, I have first-hand experience with what I like to call “bouquet-toss-heartbreak”. The last song had been played, the cake had been eaten, the wedding was over and I possessed the most gorgeous bouquet I secretly knew was destined for an ugly trash bin. Sure, I tried to preserve it but realized it would never look anything like the original. Instead, it just looked… dead. Save yourself the heartbreak and invest in a bouquet you can cherish forever. Place on a vase in your home and admire for years – your kids will love to see it someday, too.
For example, this is one of the most ethereal bouquets I have ever seen. It possesses a charming elegance with a vintage feel and incorporates all things lovely like lace, flowers, pearls, rhinestones, peonies and dahlias. This bouquet will look stunning down the aisle – and after the wedding! By Vintage Proverbs. Images by Beautiful Endings Photography.
