Long-Live Your Bouquet

Wedding bouquet preservation is expensive, and tricky, particularly when your destination wedding is in Maine (where they preserve 6 pound lobster claws, not delicate crystal-embellished flowers.)  And then, too little too late, I stumble across these gorgeous dupioni silk floral bouquets by Emici Bridal.  A perfect alternative to the traditional bouquet, this silk fabric bridal bouquet is comprised of hand cut and formed silk fabric flowers that come in a whole host of beautiful colors.  Each flower is hand-beaded in rhinestones, crystals or genuine freshwater pearls. Completely handmade and stunning – and lasts a lifetime!

Does your dream wedding scream vintage?  If your answer is a resounding yes, you will fall head over heels for these classic oldies.   Amanda Heer of Fantasy Floral Design designs these colorful vintage brooch bouquets for the bride.  The sweetest part of these picturesque bouquets – collect your own special brooches for the bouquet – something old and something new all in one.  Search for the brooches, pins, and baubles your grandmother has been collecting for all these years, or the sparkly items you’ve been picking up at flea markets and consignment stores.  And of course, the added bonus:  you will certainly bring your family to tears as you ask them for a piece of their carefully preserved collection for your wedding bouquet.  Check out the Fantasy Floral website and blog for more information about these one-of-a-kind bouquets.
