It’s no secret that we love big bunches of blooms, but we’re always on the hunt for the next great outside-the-box trend! An alternative to the traditional bridesmaid bouquet isn’t necessarily a new idea, true. However, recently we’ve seen so many creative iterations from weddings and editorials on GWS + beyond and we are *utterly* inspired.
Why have an alternative bridesmaid bouquet?
Often times alternative bouquets can be a simple way to save money on florals without skimping on the pretty factor. Other times, they’re a fun self-expression of the couple or the wedding theme. Whether you consider yourself untraditional or not, we have a feeling you might file some of these away for your own creative flow…have a look and see!
