No Flower Girl

I’ve always promised that Shot of Brandi would never turn into a wedding blog, but I did warn you that I would share some spectacular ideas here and there.

I don’t know if it is due to the recession or creativity competitions, but lately I’ve been seeing more and more brides think outside the bouquet and carry untraditional items on their wedding day. Feast your eyes on these beauties.

Sweet Something
• First there were candy buffets. Next – enter the candy bouquet! Lollipop Brides out of Australia created customized lollipop bouquets. The black and white bouquet will have guests do a double take when they first see this arm candy! (Sources: Found via Opulent Couturier; Images borrowed from Beautiful Moments)

Craft Scraps
• From buttons to felt to paper, DIY brides are totally scouring their local craft store for items to make a unique bouquet. Above you will see bouquets made from felt, buttons, paper and feathers (Sources: Frentree Flowers, ETSY: Jillian’s, Itz Friz, jujubee455)

Brooch Bouquet• While this trend is about to hit its pique, the brooch bouquet is a great option for a bride who loves shiny objects. For a pretty penny, you can order one of these online; however, more brides are making their own. I love the idea of having all of the women in your life give you brooches that make up your bouquet! To do this, ask everyone to bring you some sparkly pins to your shower. (Source: Fantasy Floral Design)

She Sells Sea Shells
• Perfect for a beach wedding is the seashell bouquet. I adore the matching boutonnieres for the guys! (Source: Romantic Flowers)

• If you thought the lollipops were wacky, just wait until you see these. For a yellow-loving bride, the first bouquet features lemons, while the second is made from artichokes! (Sources: Jane Parker Design, Hatch Creative)
