Calling all DIY brides, brides on a budget, or maybe you are a green bride, who would prefer to not use flowers or greenery…this post is for you!  Did anybody else freak out when their first wedding quote came back from the florist and it was higher than half of your entire wedding budget?  I know I did!  It is frightening, flowers can be pretty but when they cost an arm and a leg, it makes it hard to appreciate them in all their beauty!  If you are just that overly creative bride that we all hate, that’s creativity and DIY side is always looking for a fun project, you will love these twists on fresh flower wedding bouquets!  These brides ditched the fresh flowers and got out of the box a bit!  Let me know what you think of these 5 fresh flower wedding bouquet alternatives!


For all you girly brides and maybe the more formal wedding, this is a great idea!  Brooches add just the bling that every bride needs!  These are all over Etsy if you love this style but aren’t really one that is into the DIY!  I love that you can add pops of your wedding colors too!
