8 Fresh Floral Alternatives to the Bridesmaid Bouquet

I am currently smitten with the idea of using fresh flowers in lieu of a traditional bridesmaid bouquet. Perfect for brides on a tighter budget and let’s face it – it’s super pretty and adds a bit of unique eye-catching detail to your day – what’s not to love? Just make sure you speak with your florist to ensure you use flowers that will retain their shape throughout the day. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite ways to use fresh flowers to doll up your bridesmaids – think bracelets, headbands, belts, necklaces, wrist corsages and even anklets!

Wrist Corsage

I know you might be flinching at the sound of a wrist corsage. When we think of corsages, our minds generally flashback to our cheesy high school proms and formals but wrist corsages these days can actually be quite beautiful and even modern. Your bridesmaids can wear a corsage instead of carrying a bouquet and not only will they look great, it’ll also help you save a little on your florals. Here is a great DIY tutorial if you’re crafty enough to make your own!

Floral Bracelet

If I haven’t manage to convince you how awesome a corsage is, how about a smaller daintier floral accessory like a bracelet for your bridesmaids? It’s so girly!

Fresh Flowers Necklace

Can you think of anything prettier than wearing a necklace made from fresh flowers? I just love the idea! Talk about making a statement! Perfect for your bridesmaids or even you, as the bride, if you’re a little bit adventurous. And for those who love a good wedding DIY, I’ve found the perfect tutorial for you here to make your own!

Dress Corsage

Now I’m loving the idea of adding a bit of floral prettiness to your bridesmaid dresses. Whether it’s a small corsage pinned on the dress or whether it’s adding flowers to create a one shoulder look, it’s super pretty.

Flower Crown

Then there’s the flower crown which you know I love and I’m sure you’ve seen around at weddings. It’s always gorgeous and there’s always a place for them – whether on yourself, your bridesmaids or flower girls!

Floral Ring

A ring made from fresh flowers is the perfect little bit of detail to add to your bridal ensemble or your bridesmaids. There’s just something so sweet about it!

Fresh Flower Belt

A fresh flower belt is great for both brides and bridesmaids! With the right flowers, it can totally glam up your look and make a stunning statement.

Floral Anklet

How about drawing the attention downwards towards your feet? Unexpected but totally gorgeous! It can be paired with some pretty shoes or even worn barefoot like below for a lovely beach wedding.

Beach Goddess Inspiration Shoot from We Are Origami Photography

There is nothing quite like sandy toes, the thought of a warm breeze and the sound of crashing waves that gets a sigh of contentment out of me and today’s feature does just that. Stylist Jess from The Bridal Collective and the recently rebranded We Are Origami Photography paired up to show us how to serve up a classic seaside affair with a twist. With a soft palette to match the blue grey tones of the sea and the sky, beautiful sea themed tablescape and details, sweet florals by Chanele Rose Flowers & Styling and intricate headpieces by Three Sunbeams and super romantic bridesmaid dresses, they prove that a seaside affair can also be glamorous and oh-so elegant! Gone is the traditional nautical theme and I’ve got to say, I’m loving it!
