Unique Wedding Bouquet Ideas
In this article, you will find awesome, unique wedding bouquet ideas. These days it might feel like there is nothing new under the sun. But if you add your personal touch to an age-old tradition, every aspect of your wedding can be unique. This includes your wedding bouquet. Who says you have to stick to just the classic florals? Let’s mix it up a bit.
When it comes to the design of your bouquet, there are no rules. Some brides prefer to have no flowers at all and opt for something entirely different. Here at Pink Book, we love to share innovative and creative wedding ideas, so have a look at some of these super cool alternative wedding bouquet ideas:

1. Succulent Wedding Bouquets:
Succulents are a great alternative to traditional wedding flowers since they last longer than the average flower and can be re-used as home decor or gifted when the wedding day has come to an end. Succulents are generally more cost-effective than other floral options and with some added accents, they make stunning bouquets.
2. Hoop Bouquet Inspiration:
This new bouquet trend has taken the wedding industry by storm. We absolutely love the idea of including shapes and definition in wedding bouquets. This takes a bit from the old and mixes it in with the new and can be customised to suit each bride’s individual needs. Wreaths, wire rings, wooden twigs – all of these can be adorned with greenery and flowers to make a completely unique wedding bouquet.

3. Feather Bouquet Ideas:
How cool is this! This feather wedding bouquet is the ideal bouquet for a bride looking to upcycle and can easily be DIY’d. Incorporating feathers in your bouquet gives it a vintage touch. And depending on the type of feather used, it will add a touch of neutral colour.
4. Fruit Bouquet Ideas:
This idea is so fresh, we can’t even deal! This is such a cool and crisp idea which would be perfect for summer and spring weddings. You can choose to just add a unique touch to your bouquet by adding a fruit element here and there. OR go all out and make a bouquet of only fruit!
5. Bouquet of Lights:
Light up your guests’ worlds by having a lightbulb bouquet. This is such a bright alternative to normal wedding flowers and can easily be re-used. This is perfect for evening wedding ceremonies. You can be completely creative with this unique bouquet idea. Naked Edison bulbs for a vintage theme, fairy lights for a romantic touch or glowing LED lights to accent other elements in your bouquet. The options are endless.

6. Paper Bouquet
Designing a flower bouquet made of paper can be very special and unique. If your wedding has a modern touch these paper flowers could look very classy. Another thing is that you don’t have to worry about the flowers fading, these flowers are timeless. This is a perfect DIY Wedding Bouquet idea! And with loads of different paper colours and textures available, you can make a bouquet to perfectly suit your wedding theme.

7. Bejewelled Bouquet
Another creative idea is to add some jewellery. This also makes the item timeless and you will be able to combine your favourite floral jewels with some antique and personal pieces. A bouquet of beads, gem and jewellery is perfect for a bride who loves a little bling in her life. This option is also a perfect companion to a vintage, victorian era wedding dress.
8. Pine Cone Bouquet
Who doesn’t love the festive look of pine cones? If you are having a winter or autumn wedding, a wedding bouquet with decorative pine cones fits in perfectly. And so what if you’re having a summer Christmas wedding in the southern hemisphere – lets still add some pine cones, because why not? It’s more cost-effective than lavish flowers and looks just as nice.
9. Hanging Bouquet
The hanging bouquet adorning a bride’s wrist is a new and elegant idea. This is a chic and modern option, but we would recommend using a professional floral stylist to design this one for you. Florists can create the most breathtaking hanging bouquets – whereas a DIY might end up looking a little tacky. (trust us, we ended up with a few blooms on a string of ribbon…)
10. Button Up Bouquet
Your wedding can be picture perfect with a buttoned bouquet. Use different sized, shaped and coloured buttons and add them to your material or floral bouquet. Debbie Carlisle knows a thing or two about incorporating the vintage theme in your floral arrangements.
11. Dried Flowers Bouquet
Dried flowers are one of the big upcoming wedding trends, and this includes the use in bridal bouquets! These bouquets with their neutral colour pallets work well with modern and rustic wedding themes alike.
Claire from Bella Chiara Accessories says: “There are so many wedding bouquet ideas options, from brooch-, beaded-, fabric/silk flower- and feather bouquets. Even pomander balls decorated with crystals. I’ve recently been asked to make a gorgeous fabric bouquet for a client. And earlier this year I made a beautiful pomander ball for a client who was getting married in Norway and couldn’t get fresh flowers, as the venue was the Ice Hotel.
I think a bouquet that will not fade after the wedding day is so special and definitely worth the investment. It’s also a way to bring out the bride’s personality and can cater for special touches like lockets with a picture of a loved one. Non-traditional bouquets aren’t just for the bride either, I’m working on ideas for a bride who wants pomander bouquets for her bridesmaids.”
