As a South Sound bride, you don’t have to limit yourself to expensive floral centerpieces. Whether mixed with flowers or in individual containers like shallow bowls or hurricane lanterns, using other materials adds depth and texture to your décor.

For those who want unique wedding bouquets – not fresh flowers – check out these bouquets made of paper, shells and brooches. For those allergic or sensitive to flowers and scents, these bouquets will serve you well! Plus they are keepsakes!
Some florists will assist or make these bouquets for you. Ask your florist. If you want to do it yourself, gather your crafty friends, search for some patterns and start creating!
You will find bouquet bases at most local craft stores. They also have glue, ribbon, paper and other supplies you will need. For vintage brooches, ask your mom, grandmother and aunts for theirs. Or you may purchase them at thrift stores, yard sales and vintage shops, but beware, prices can be high when you need 10 or more brooches per bouquet.
