As the bride, part of your responsibilities include asking the bridal party, selecting their attire—and figuring out what they're going to carry down the aisle. And while we will always love a tight bundle of garden roses or even a lush arrangement of poppies or peonies, sometimes you want to think out of the box (or, in this case, the bouquet). So, what if your girls—including the bridesmaids, flower girls, and even you—didn't carry a bouquet at all? Yes, that's right: We found the prettiest, unique, and modern alternatives to the traditional flower bouquet.
From geometric prisms (perf for a modern celebration) to actual tambourines (attention: music lovers!), these bouquet alternatives are far from ordinary—but don't think for a minute that means they're ugly! No, these non-traditional bouquet options are elevated, thoughtful, and most of all, pretty. (Three musts for all of your wedding-day décor.) For instance, one trend we're seeing is the flower hoop, which involves a hoop—it can be metal, plastic, or wooden—covered in bright blooms and greenery. The modern shape makes it unique and the blooms make it sweet—and thanks to its built-in handle, it's also super easy to carry. Seriously, your 'maids will thank you. We also love the wedding-day dreamcatcher, perfect for a boho bride; and it's even more perfect because your girls can save it as a keepsake long after they walk down the aisle for you.
Basically, whether you're a flower lover or not, keep reading to at least check out the new trends in modern-day bridesmaids' bouquets. Take a peek, decide if this trend is for you—and, of course, feel free to mix and match the ideas below. (For instance, we can totally see some flowing ribbons tied to that floral hoop!). We can't wait to see what creative, non-traditional bouquets you come up with!
