Toss the Bouquet: Five Alternatives for Bridesmaids Flowers
Today's wedding parties are far from the traditional girls on one side in pink poofy dresses and boys on the other in stiff tuxes. Given the more unique and informal mix-and-match vibe of current trends for wedding parties, it's time to come up with some alternatives to the long-standing bridesmaid bouquet. Here are five great ideas for spicing things up:
Flower Ring Add a sweet little fresh floral ring for an added touch of color and fun. Especially darling for little flower girls!
Flower Belt Tie together your mis-matched bridesmaid dresses with matching flower belts! Easy to wear and let's your ladies stand out all night long, even on the dance floor!
Flower Necklace These are darling and a real improvement on the wrist corsage. They can be large and dramatic or small and cute to fit any dress or vision. The necklace is especially great for the girl standing on the groom's side since it sits a bit like a boutonniere but is far more feminine.
Flower Comb Another great alternative for "groomsmaids", a fresh floral hair comb is beautiful in a simple up-do and not overpowering like a full head wreath. Give your Maid of Honor one to make her feel extra special.
Flower Wreath This is not for your head! Flower head wreaths are no doubt lovely, but they have graced many, many weddings and Pinterest boards already. Instead, have the ladies carry fresh, delicate floral wreaths for a more unique and truly romantic look. Not to mention a circular wreath is great symbolism of never ending love to have at a wedding.
