The Nonconformist's Bouquet

Recommended Posts


The Nonconformist's Bouquet 


Floral bouquets are gorgeous, timeless, and traditional, but sometimes the occasion and our personality beg for something a little more avant-garde.  Today, there are a myriad of alternatives to the floral bouquet that serve as beautiful and unique options to the traditional.  The first and most recently publicized is the gorgeous broach bouquet, followed by feather, fabric and even paper bouquets that will satisfy that nonconformist in you.  



Country star, Miranda Lambert walked down the aisle toward country star, Blake Shelton carrying a beautiful bouquet made of sparkling, colorful, bejeweled broaches, seen below.

Mirandaâ€s statement making bouquet is as personal as it is lovely.  According to US Weekly, Miranda asked her wedding shower guest to bring a broach with them to the shower.  She then had the Ritzy Rose combine the broaches into the work of art you see here.  She topped it off by wrapping the stem of the bouquet with her motherâ€s lace handkerchief.


Canâ€t afford the Ritzy Rose?  Etsy has a vendor who is selling very similar, custom-made versions for $475.

If you are looking for a softer side for your bouquet try a feathered bouquet.  These come in a variety of options from the simple to the dramatic.  These bouquets add texture, volume, and elegant movement as you float with them down the aisle.  Try playing with the idea of a feathered fan in place of a bouquet if you still crave something a bit more out of the norm.

Fabric is versatile, flexible, and can be molded to fit any form, any style.  Fabric bouquets can look very expensive, but my favorite is a country-vintage inspired bouquet made of gingham red and white rosettes.

Last, but not least, is the delicate and intricate paper bouquet.  These bouquets are no simple task.  They are unique bouquets gently crafted into works of art.

These non-floral options are ideal for the destination-wedding bride.  You will not have to worry about securing a local florist, or about flowers wilting in the heat.  After your day, your bouquet can become a precious keep-sake!


No matter what medium you choose to design your bouquet in, it should be a bouquet as fitting for you as your dress.  Enjoy the options!

I would definitely not call myself a nonconformist, but I made myself a brooch and real touch rose bouquet. It was pricy and time-intensive, but in the end, worth it. I love it!


There's a ton of tutorials out there on all of these types of bouquets for the DIY brides! I spent months doing research before I started making it but the thing is sturdy as a rock now LOL

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
