Paper Wedding Bouquets

Wedding bouquets are traditionally made of beautifully arranged, gorgeous smelling fresh seasonal flowers. Over the years there have been many different styles and trends of bouquets, depending on the bride’s tastes and, of course, the availability of the flowers.

 

It is thought that brides originally carried a bouquet of flowers with her as she walked down the aisle, not to add to the beauty of the occasion, but simply to hide her smell! Hygiene in the middle ages certainly wasn’t the best, with baths being a luxury for most. What better way to hide the odour than with a bunch of fragrant fresh flowers.

 

 

 

 

But things have changed! (Thank goodness) And there are lots of new alternatives appearing on the scene. My favourite….. paper bouquets.

 

How inspirational are these paper bouquets? All a little bit quirky, but they are all very symbolic. One of them is made of comic book pages of the grooms favourite superhero, another is made of pages of the couple’s favourite passages, and then there is the one made from sheet music….. they are all so special – they are all so unique.

 

 

 

So when you are thinking of how you can put your own special stamp on your wedding, keep an open mind, because the results can be stunning, and I’m sure the end results for these brides was very rewarding.
