Wedding Bouquet – The Out of the Ordinary

In this article, you will find awesome, out-of-the-ordinary wedding bouquet ideas. When it comes to the planning of the bouquet and wedding flowers, it is always wise to research which flowers are in season. This way you will save yourself from spending too much money on flowers that are almost impossible to find. 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.

Unique Wedding Bouquet Ideas:

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 these alternatives:

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.


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. Love Bouquets knows a thing or two about beaded, gem and jewellery bouquets and they pride themselves in only using the finest materials.

Button Up

Your vintage themed 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.

Claire from Bella Chiara Accessories says: “There are so many 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. I do offer unusual bouquets as part of my service offering, but only make to order as I cater to brides who want bespoke items. Prices range from R1500 to R2600 depending on the extent of the detail and cost of materials.”
