How to Create a Sentimental Bouquet
We’ve all heard the saying, something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a six pence in your shoe, right? The idea behind this is for the bride to carry one of each of these items down the aisle with her for good luck. Whether you believe in good luck or not, it’s a nice idea to carry a small sentimental item with you on your wedding day. A great place to showcase this sentimental item is in your wedding bouquet. Here are some ideas of special items you can add to your bouquet:
- Fabric/Lace. Wrap a small piece of your mom or grandmothers wedding dress around the stem of your bouquet.
- Buttons/Bling. Use buttons or bling along the stem of your bouquet from a relative’s wedding dress or perhaps a favorite outfit.
- Picture. Tie a locket with a picture of deceased family members that you’d like to be part of your wedding day.
- Charms. You can purchase sweet charms with prayers and poems on them to carry down the aisle, like THIS one.
- Jewelry/Broach. Showcasing a family piece of jewelry or broach looks gorgeous on a bridal bouquet.
- Type of Flower. Was there a special flower that your mom or grandmother used in their bridal bouquet? Or a favorite flower of deceased loved one? Use that flower for your bouquet.
So, what do you think? Have you considered adding something special to your bouquet?
