Not every bride is a fan of flowers and will be looking for ‘alternative flowers’ ideas that look just as beautiful as the bouquet she will be walking down the aisle with. But are they easy to find? Most if not all of the five quirky alternative to flowers that we will be talking about can be attempted by a crafty bride or if that isn’t an option there are plenty of ‘crafties’ out there eager to get their hands on a project like these.
Unlike real flowers, these bouquets can and do last forever and would not look out of place on display along with a bride and groom photograph. Each would also impress guests who have only ever seen flower bouquets (real or artificial) and give future brides alternative ideas of their own. These quirky alternative to flowers do not have to be limited to the bride only and can include the bridesmaid, buttonholes and even the table decorations.
So let’s take a closer look at the five quirky alternative flowers:
