For instance, if you are having a fall or winter wedding, you could add evergreen stems and pinecones to your bouquet. You can also create a bouquet out of Christmas ornaments in your wedding colors. For autumn, a beautiful bouquet for the season would be one made of autumn leaves.

For a spring or summer wedding, create a bouquet out of seashells.  You could create a wedding bouquet out of fresh, natural herbs. This still recalls the original tradition of a floral bouquet – to add a beautiful scent to the bride walking down the aisle. You can also create a bright and vibrant bouquet out of paper flowers, add butterflies to your bouquet, or create a natural bouquet made out of vines.

Paper bouquets are extremely popular for the ultimate DIY bride. There are many tutorials on Pinterest that explain how to create paper flowers of any kind to make a beautiful bouquet. Using the pages from the couple’s favorite book or another romantic novel can have great secret symbolism. Creating bouquets out of fabric is another great choice for a DIY bride.

Brooch bouquets are a great choice for vintage or winter weddings. They have a very rich look and feel to them and can complement the decor and dresses very nicely. Just don’t choose brooches for your throwaway bouquet! You might give your newly-single aunt a concussion.
