Monday Inspiration| Alternative Wedding Bouquet

September 15, 2014

Woop Woop! It’s a new week on the blog. I hope you are well. In case you all haven’t noticed, I’m enjoying the world of Instagram @studiochiweddings. Tell you the truth I’m a bit hooked! But the thing is, after you’ve read a tonne of magazines and subscribed to every blog with a fluffy name and flowers in the background, you can find yourself…..well. Bored!

When everyone goes to the same places for inspiration, they can all tend to look the same.  That I can forgive. But when brides start to look the same, no! Not acceptable. We are all far too unique to start wearing and accessorising with the same cubic zirconia chandelier earrings, lace dress and red bottoms. It will suit one beautiful girl. In fact it will be perfect……..for her. But you? When all of Summer 2014 weddings start to blur into one. God forbid.

When I see something different, like an alternative wedding bouquet?

I must share…

Diann Valentine alternative wedding bouquet floral bridal cuff

Isn’t it beautiful?

I predict that this will be suited for a no fuss, non-traditional modern bride. A cuff is easier to dance with, leaving you with both hands free. It also leaves you without the weight of a traditional bouquet. Having held a few, I know they are pretty heavy.This raises another point. Why when we use the most incredibly creative floral designers, do we restrict them to the traditional. I’m waiting for the bride who give a designer a scheme and tell them to go for it.

For those of you who were looking forward to throwing your bouquet. This may not be an option for you as throwing a cuff does NOT have the same effect.   Or perhaps you could publicly appreciate your maid of honour  or mother by giving her your floral cuff to to wear later on the evening. Let’s start a new tradition!

Prices start from $300/ approx £185
