Gorgeous, aren’t they?
I love alternative wedding bouquets.
The pretty ones, the cool ones, even the quirky ones:
These hypoallergenic bouquets are great for someone with allergies . People don’t want to look like these in their wedding days.
Here are the reasons I prefer alternative bouquets to cut-flowers bouquets:
(Real) flowers start to wilt the moment they are cut. They aren’t cheap either. Unless the bride is into pressed flowers &/or dried flowers, they bouquet will end up in a trash bin. What a waste~
On the other hand, alternative bouquets (like this brooch bouquet) lasts for many years to come & can be kept as a keepsake/memento. It can become a family heirloom & someone’s [e.g. one’s daughter or grandaughter] “something old” someday.
Real flowers – unlike this brooch bouquet are do not sparkle.
They can come in any size & shape we want.
Even in colors & shapes we can’t find in nature.
And, for the people who prefer a natural looking handmade keepsake bouquet, lightweight clay bouquet like this can be a great alternative.
These clay peonies are cheaper than real peonies. (Peonies are late-spring – early-summer flowers. So, these flowers are more expensive than usual in other seasons).
Unlike real peonies, these clay flowers will look as beautiful for a very, very long time. They will definitely look fresh throughout the wedding day.
Some don’t care about flowers.
And brides should be allowed to wear whatever they like.
How about you?
