When it comes to picking out the floral items for your bouquet, things can get pretty overwhelming — not to mention expensive — and fast. From style, shape, even down to the flowers themselves, there is a lot that goes into picking the perfect arrangement. So what is a girl to do when faced with the choice of daffodils or dahlias? Have your guests help you build your very own bouquet!
Sounds a little out of the box, yes, but this unique process will be something you, as well as your guests, will never forget. Here is how it works! Ask your guests to bring a flower or two to your wedding. You can ask them to provide a flower that may remind them of you or one that describes your personality. Then, as you make your way down the aisle, collect the flowers as they present them to you. Easy enough and totally unique! Once you’ve reached the alter, simply pass your collection of flowers to your Maid of Honor where she can tie them together for safe keeping.
If you have a particular color theme you’re trying to keep with, a great idea is to provide your guests with an assortment of flowers before entering the ceremony. Leave several options for your guests to select from, so you can still build your dream bouquet. Either way you choose, we love the idea of “the guest bouquet.” This would be a truly unique experience for any bride and make her walk down the aisle unforgettable!
