I am totally excited about today’s post! It’s our trip around the world of contemporary new looks in bespoke wedding bouquets, keepsakes that will be witness of your special day for a lifetime. Brides today have the opportunity to walk down the aisle with an amazing array of looks and modern takes on floral decor.
The latest in alternatives to traditional fresh flower bouquets are colorful, exciting and gorgeous all around. From felt flowers to feathers, to seashells and candy (how sweet is that!), these fresh new looks in non-floral bouquets will make any bride look chic and add that on-of-a-kind personal style. In addition, you don’t have to throw them away after the wedding, and they’ll be there when you open the box of wedding memories.

Sparkly jewelry based bouquets are all the rage, and this design by Audge Podge includes brooches, upcycled jewelry finds and buttons together in an elegant combination of bling and color. I love button bouquets and brooch bouquets for their texture, you can also include pieces of jewelry from family members, and button combinations and details that you love. Audge Podge designs also feature lovely feathers and details that make each bouquet stylish.
