Want to add a little something extra to your wedding bouquet? You’ll find it here! Wedding bouquet accessories are sweet accents you add to your flowers. For instance, bouquet accessories are often wrapped around the stems, added around the handle, or added to the flowers themselves — sometimes all three! — which adds a personalized touch to your blooms.
In this post, we’re sharing the top three bouquet accessories for adding a 1) pop of color, 2) as a way to keep memories of loved ones close, and 3) for your “something blue“. You can add all three of the bouquet accessories if you’d like, as they all serve a different purpose. :)
We’re kicking off the list with our favorite: a bouquet ribbon! Brides overlook this fun accessory which adds bold color to the handle of your bouquet. We recommend a long length ribbon since it makes a stylish statement — very on-trend right now.
Let’s get started!
Wedding Bouquet Accessories
1. Bouquet Ribbons
A bouquet ribbon is easily the best way to add a pop of color or style to your bouquet handle. Plus, it adds something soft and silky to hold in your hands, rather than rough stems.
The ribbon is wrapped around the handle where you carry it, covers over flower stems, and adds a finishing touch to the bouquet handle. You can customize the bouquet ribbon color to coordinate with your wedding, thanks to Mallorey of Planted Pigments (+ Featured Artist at Emmaline Bride!) She creates these luxurious hand-dyed silk ribbons for bouquets in colors of your choice. (You can see the full collection here).
These silk bouquet ribbons are dyed by hand in small batches using botanicals from Mallorey’s garden and locally around the Berkshires (with a few exceptions).
Your bouquet ribbon measures 2 inches wide by 70 inches long and adds that special bouquet accessory to your wedding details. It also looks beautiful in your wedding photos! Many brides like to use a blue ribbon around the bouquet to add “Something Blue”; you can note your color when you purchase.
GOOD TO KNOW TIP: If you like a softer shine, choose lightweight ribbon; if you want a brighter shine and drape, choose the heavier weight ribbon.
2. Bouquet Photo Charms
Bouquet charms are another accessory to add, which can include photos of loved ones you’ve lost. This is a sweet way to “walk down the aisle” with your loved ones in spirit. Charms can be pinned to your bouquet handle and shown off with your ribbon (see bouquet ribbons above). You can also get bouquet charms wrapped on the ribbon and tie them securely around your bouquet handle if you prefer. You can get photo locket bouquet charms from WeddingBouquetCharms, as shown here:
3. “Something Blue” Butterfly
This butterfly clip can be added to your wedding bouquet as an extra-special accent. The wings can be personalized with Mrs. and your last name, wedding date, or simply, “Something Blue”. By Flutter2Me.
What do you think of these bouquet accessories? Which ones are YOU adding to your bouquet? I wish I knew of the bouquet ribbons when I got married! I love how they look when they’re extra-long in length; they add such a beautiful look as you’re walking down the aisle!
