Andy and I got married in our living room in Florida with 4 guests and I had no wedding bouquet. But, if I did do the big wedding thing I would totally have crafted up a unique, wedding bouquet! It’s so fun to see all of the creativity… who would have thought you could make a bouquet out of crochet, yarn balls, door knobs, brooches, t-shirts, air plants, or cotton! I also love the idea of a super simple DIY wedding bouquet like a single giant balloon, extra large tissue paper flower or even a paper pin wheel. Here are 28 wedding bouquet ideas you’re gonna love…

What a beautiful round-up! I can’t choose a favorite. I’m lovin’ the crochet bouquet and the origami flowers. Just beautiful!
Samantha Baker says
So gorgeous and such a great idea to do something totally unique and different! Really loving the bouquets that are made out of diecut flowers (or origami). So pretty and such a great way to save costs on the bouquet by using your own cutting machine to cut them out 🙂

#15 is my favorite so far. it’s stylish and simple at the same time. no wonder it sells so good on etsy. In our fanclub we have Cristy that does flowers just like that
btw, really nice ads on images – is it plugin or something?

I like almost all but the butterflies fascinated me. I’ve been in love with him. The pity is that I’m married, but maybe when you turn 25 years of married, if I remember, I’ll do one like … I do scrapbooking, will be why I liked it so much. Location A Coruna, Galicia, Spain.
Thank you very much for showing their creativity.
