Sure we love working with blooms (surprise, surprise!) but we also enjoy incorporating oh-so-lovely bouquet binding, which helps to pull together the entire arrangement and creates a finished look. Looking for a bit of inspiration? Allow us to help!
Add a bit of shine to the binding of your bouquet with pearls. For a timeless look, you can opt for classic white pearls, but if you’re hoping for something more modern, colorful beads can be show-stopping!
Mixing a strand of pearls with sparkling rhinestones can be a memorable way to mix styles – both are sure to win you over!
Another classic and practical option is to incorporate pearl-head pins to hold the binding ribbon into place (both of which come in every color of the rainbow – dare to get creative!).
Ask around among family members to see if you can get your hands on a special brooch for your ceremony. Brooches or decorative pins can secure ribbon around stems in a unique way that has special meaning. Bonus: You can check off something old or something borrowed from your list!
Rings are another lovely touch to add to your bouquet. We loved this bride’s use of a claddagh ring, which signifies love and friendship in Irish culture.
Lace is always a favorite with brides – it can be dressed up or down and will always look elegant. If you will be sporting a lace dress down the aisle, all the better!
There are unlimited ways to dress up your bouquet, so it’s time to get your thinking caps on!
