To make unique bridal bouquets, you can choose to use unique flower materials. These materials are not easily available from the florist or growers and can be seasonal. But using these materials can make your bridal bouquet different and unique.
The materials I am referring to are like using diplocyclos (mini watermelons), Lady Slippers (a type of orchid), succulents, celosia or Fiddle Ferns (Monkey Tail). Combine with other flowers like roses, orchids or tulips to your unique 'flowers' to make your bouquet.
Another way to make your bridal bouquet unique, you can also add rainbow lollipops among the flowers in your bouquet, to make a colorful bouquet.
Another idea to use non-floral materials to make your bouquet. You can use paper, felt or ribbons to make single flowers and tie them in a bunch to make a bouquet. You can also collect brooches from your family members and combine them to make a meaningful, personal sparkling bouquet.
Personalizing Your Bridal Bouquet Ideas
The patriotic bride Honor your nationality by including your national flower in your bouquet. Singaporean brides can include the Vanda orchid. Malaysian brides can choose hibiscus as the main flower, and Chinese brides can choose the peony.
