29 Alternative Bridesmaid Bouquet Ideas To Spark Your Creativity!

alternative bridesmaids bouquet ideas

It’s no secret that we love big bunches of blooms, but we’re always on the hunt for the next great outside-the-box trend! An alternative to the traditional bridesmaid bouquet isn’t necessarily a new idea, true. However, recently we’ve seen so many creative iterations from weddings and editorials on GWS + beyond and we are *utterly* inspired.

Why have an alternative bridesmaid bouquet?

Often times alternative bouquets can be a simple way to save money on florals without skimping on the pretty factor. Other times, they’re a fun self-expression of the couple or the wedding theme. Whether you consider yourself untraditional or not, we have a feeling you might file some of these away for your own creative flow…have a look and see!
