make your bouquet even more charming
The wedding dress is no longer the only thing in the wedding spotlight, now sharing attention with a handful of other well thought-out details such as gorgeous flowers.
Fragrant blooms can be used throughout the whole day from decorating venues, sprucing up tables, grouping colour palettes and being a fresh accessory for all the wedding party. The groom and his men can wear singular buds as boutonnieres, bridesmaids can hold baskets filled with scented petals, flower corsages can be given to female guests and not to mention the bridal bouquet.
Throwing the bridal bouquet is a wedding day tradition many brides are excited to take part in. However, there are some that want to keep and preserve it as a special momentum of their special day. Wedding flower charms and pendants offer an alternative keepsake so brides can enjoy all bridal traditions.
Personalised wedding bouquet charms are lovely extra to tie around your bridal bouquet. These silver wedding charms by Dizzy come in a range of unique styles. Each is handmade in solid silver and hanged from a satin ribbon. There’s also the option to include a special heirloom charm such as your ‘something blue’. Louy Magroos also has a set of wedding bouquet charms personalised to suit you. You can have your names on different pendants and the date of your wedding on another. They can then be placed on a necklace for you to keep forever after.
Other alternatives are mini porcelain letters displaying the couples initials or fabric love hearts filled with English lavender. Each is hand stamped with a special wording such as ‘wedding day’ or ‘you & me’ and your wedding date.
If you want to get a bit more creative, why not make your own bouquet accessory and channel your inner DIY bride? Contemporary Weddings have a range of wedding style ribbons, perfect for a starting point to create your flower tie-around. Opt for a colour that matches your theme or if you want something a bit different then this velvet scallop ribbon by paper-and-string will definitely stand out. Finish it off by adding something that is personal to you. This could be a family hierloom piece of jewellery or ask each of your girl friends to give you a lovely charm that represents your friendship, so you’ll be hand in hand, so to speak, as you walk down the aisle. Argent of London have a selection of sweet silver charms, from a coffee bean to a single flip-flop (reminisce about a past all-girls-holiday perhaps!).
These thoughtful bouquet accessories add a personal element to the flowers and will hopefully add a touch of luck to the happy catcher! It is wedding tradition after all. Go on, share the love…
