How to Make a Wedding Bouquet: DIY Unique Ideas

Have you ever noticed how most bouquets look the same? Sure, they look beautiful, but they don’t really have much variety. They usually contain flowers and some type of greenery.

But whoever said that bouquets only had to contain flowers and greenery?

Why can’t they contain something a bit more exciting?

Well, you can try anything really, it is only limited by your imagination.

Making Your Bridal Bouquet Unique

Most brides spend hours thinking about what flowers they want in their bouquets and then what flowers they want as accents to the focal flower.

I wonder what would happen if they had something else to choose from, instead of just flowers?

Does the person you are making the bouquet for have a favorite thing that they would love to carry down the aisle?

You should always ask your bride what they would like in their bouquet because it doesn’t have to be flowers.

Items to Add To Your Bouquet

There are plenty of other things you can add, such as:

  1. toy cars

  2. toy trains

  3. toy airplanes

  4. miniature teddy bears

  5. small dolls

  6. plastic horses, cats, dogs, or birds

Some other things you could add include candy, chocolates, bubble gum, fruit, vegetables, cupcakes, etc. You could even add lollipops to you bouquet!

You probably think I’ve gone mad! But trust me, people liked to have a choice and they like to feel that they are different and unusual!

And adding interesting objects to the bouquet can be a good way to get the groom more involved with the wedding. For example, if the groom is a pilot, or likes cars, how about adding some toy planes or toy cars to the bouquet? This is sure to get him more involved!

Not all brides will want to do this, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have more choice!

And just because you are adding a few different things doesn’t mean you still can’t have flowers. All you do is combine the two, for example, you could have seven teddy bears and nine roses. It’s really up to the person getting married.

As you know, weddings can be very stressful and taxing. So why not lighten things up a little and give people something to talk about for years to come?
