6 Easy Ways to Make Your Wedding Bouquet Stand Out

Whether you’re into super-detailed weddings or rather minimal ones, we all have to agree that there is no wedding without a bouquet. Every bride loves flowers on her big day, but not everyone wants to go for a traditional bouquet. So what are your options if you’re looking for something a bit different? In this article, I have listed at least six easy ways to make your wedding bouquet stand out.

1. Go big

So you want a bouquet, but you don’t want something obvious… The solution? Go BIG! Everyone will expect you to have some sort of bouquet, but likely nobody has seen anything like this before.

3. Go round

If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional wedding bouquet, you could consider a bridal wreath instead. They are beautiful and come in several styles, your bridesmaids could also have smaller matching ones.

6. Go personal

Without question, one of the best ways you can make your wedding bouquet stand out is to add a personal touch. Whether you decide to handpick the flowers from your own garden or add something you love (i.e. a pendant), your touch will definitely make it unique. If you’re really creative, you can even do like these brides and actually create your own bouquet.
