There are so many options when it comes to choosing your bridal bouquet that it can be difficult to know where to start. So here are a few reasons why you might think about fabric flower wedding bouquet as an alternative to a traditional fresh flower bouquet.
1. It will last forever
I love getting bought fresh flowers but always find it incredibly upsetting when they wither and die. This was one of the main reasons I decided to make my own fabric flower bouquet. Unlike fresh flowers, a fabric flower bouquet can be treasured forever. It can be beautifully displayed in your home as a reminder of your special day or cherished as a family heirloom. Keep following the blog for more ideas on how to display your bouquet after your wedding.
2. You can have unusual colours or patterns
It might sound obvious but fabric flowers can be made from any type of fabric. This is perfect for brides who like to think outside the box with their wedding colours, alternative brides or those who just want something a bit different. You can have black, gold, gingham, paisley, stripes, spots. The possibilities are endless!
3. You can add personal mementos to incorporate an old memory into a new celebration
A grandmother’s brooch, a piece of mother’s jewellery or even something special from your relationship like a pin badge from your first gig together. These can all be incorporated into your bridal bouquet. Your wedding day should be a reflection of your personality and your relationship and this is a great way to make your bouquet a special, one of a kind piece: just like you! This can also be a nice way to remember absent loved ones on your special day. A small photo or token can be incorporated into the design so you can carry your loved ones with you even if they cannot be with you.
4. All bouquets are completely bespoke
All bouquets can be designed specifically to your requirements which means you have a completely unique, one of a kind item. Whether you love the seaside, vintage lace, bold retro colours and patterns or sparkles and glamour your bouquet can be made to reflect your personality and taste.
5. Perfect if you are getting married abroad
Fabric flower bouquets are perfect for destination weddings. There is no danger of them withering in the heat and it takes the hassle out of finding a florist abroad. Simply pack your bouquet in your suitcase and you’re ready to go! If you’re having a small ceremony abroad and a larger reception after you get home you can put your dress on again and your bouquet will still be as beautiful as it was on your wedding day.
6. Great for people with allergies
If you suffer from hayfever or allergies fresh flowers can be a nightmare! All the sneezing and puffy eyes - no one wants that, especially not on your wedding day. Fabric flower bouquets are a great alternative for allergy sufferers as they have no pollen and no strong scent. There is no need to worry about sneezing affecting your enjoyment of the day or puffy eyes being a problem in your photos.
7. No need to worry about the seasons
Fabric flowers are evergreen! It doesn’t matter what time of year you would like a particular flower or colour. This can be especially useful for winter weddings if your preferred flowers are out of season.
8. Can be delivered in advance
It takes me 6-8 weeks to create a bespoke fabric flower bouquet. Once it’s finished it can be shipped to you weeks or months in advance which means it’s one less thing to worry about on the morning of the wedding and you can focus on enjoying the day.
And there you have it! Eight reasons to choose a fabric flower bouquet for your wedding. Hopefully this will help you make your decision.
