Wedding Flowers: How to Break Free from Tradition

By David @Topweddingwall

There’s no doubt about it: The traditional cascade of white flowers with a few springs of Gypsophila tucked here and there certainly makes for an appealing bridal bouquet. Still, if you’re among the trendy brides who want to vamp it up and stand out from the crowd, don’t hesitate to look into some more original and eye-catching options that will never fail to wow your guests. In fact, some types of untraditional wedding bouquets can even enhance your dress, bringing a classy and sophisticated look to your attire.

Multi-Coloured Bridal bouquet

Brides who aren’t afraid to push the boundaries, for instance, can check out the glamorous Bridal Brooches bouquets. The latest wedding flower trend, these bouquets are entirely crafted from stones- precious or semi-precious- which is the perfect way for you to include your something blue in your overall look! If you can afford it, do not hesitate to ask your jeweller to craft a waterfall bouquet of sparkling diamonds, twinkling blue sapphires and just a few pink stones here and there to complete the look. Brides who are on a limited budget can go for pearls- or even faux pearls for that matter- as well as other affordable semi-precious stones.

Jewelled brooch bouquet

These wedding bouquet brooches are readily available online on various wedding-related stores and best of all, they’ll never wither or dry and you’ll always have a memento of your wedding to keep on your mantelpiece. Of course, it goes without saying that you can always go for a smaller natural bouquet to throw after the ceremony.

Purple wedding bouquet with bejewelled stem

If you don’t want to go for a wedding brooch but you still want to add some sparkle to your wedding flowers, why don’t you ask your jeweller or florist to create a bejewelled stem for your bouquet? Sophisticated and glamorous, these can be done in a variety of colours. In fact, to break free from tradition, try to go for a shade that will drastically contrast with your wedding dress. Red, purple, deep, emerald green, sunny yellow and pink are usually the most popular choices.


Of course, brides can always go for classic bouquets but never hesitate to enhance it up by skipping the traditional wedding roses in flavour of something more exotic such as lilies or even sunflowers. Indeed, a particularly lovely touch would be to go for a stunningly colourful bouquet crafted with the most exotic flowers such as lavender, hibiscus, birds of paradise and sunflowers, among others. After all, your wedding day’s certainly a cause for celebration so feel free to lock up the traditional white flowers and go absolutely crazy on contrasting hues!
