Ethereal Bridal Bouquet: Peonies, Lace + Pearls

by Emma Arendoski

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.

Totally wishing this was a “How to” I’m so in love with this bouquet!

I love this bouquet and would definitely consider it if I was not wanting real flowers (and if I was getting married…minor detail). I really like that there is just one brooch in it. The total brooch bouquets are too much bling for my tastes…I like how this one is subtle, simple, and elegant. And the neutral color palette is dreamy :)
