Unique Bouquet Alternatives

A collection of fresh roses with stems wrapped in soft satin ribbon is what we normally picture when we think of a bridal bouquet. However, since weddings have become more unique and free-form, you have more opportunities to express yourself through what you decide to carry down the aisle. In Jessica's previous blog contribution Fabric Boutonnieres, she discussed a creative option for bridal party flowers.

Here are a few of my favorite alternatives to the classic bridal bouquet.
