Bridal Bouquet: To Toss or To Preserve?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

If you’re up in the air about whether to toss your bridal bouquet or preserve your wedding keepsake, there are some things to keep in mind. This long-standing wedding tradition has evolved over time – in fact, brides used to toss the garter. The bridal bouquet toss honors wedding tradition, entertains guests and makes an amusing photograph. But like the gorgeous centerpieces that are often given to family and friends by day’s end, your cherished bridal bouquet can become another woman’s token. You can have a smaller bouquet or another bridal keepsake to throw for this Kodak moment; similar to the toss garter, which allows a bride to keep hers for years to come.

For do-it-yourself brides, there are ways to preserve your bridal bouquet at home. Remember hanging beloved flower bouquets upside down in a dark closet for weeks? You can remove moisture with drying agents, such as sand, silica gel or borax, to preserve your own bouquet. Or, you can press flowers and make an arrangement. But paying extra to have your bouquet professionally preserved guarantees a beautiful, lasting result and offers several display options. Bouquet preservation is a laborious process that includes the freeze-dried method or pressing flowers to create a unique wedding keepsake. Keep your budget in mind when choosing the bouquet design. Many bouquet preservation companies offer the following options for your bridal flowers:  shadowboxes, oval frames, pressed flowers, tabletop displays (domes and pyramids) and jewelry boxes. Floral preservation isn’t just for the bridal bouquet, however, it can also be used for wedding boutonnieres, corsages, centerpieces and floral arrangements. In the end, it’s a personal choice and you will have cherished memories either way. Inquire with floral preservation companies, such as Keepsake Floral and Shanel’s Flowers and Frames, prior to deciding whether to toss or keep your bridal bouquet. Check the Internet and with local floral vendors to find a reputable bouquet preservationist. Bouquet jewelry adds sparkle to any wedding flower arrangement, so visit Advantage Bridal to see our wide selection of bridal accessories!

Looking to be bridal royalty on your wedding day? A veil paired with a tiara says “bride” more than any other bridal accessory.

Capture your bridal style with one-of-a-kind pieces by Bel Aire Bridal, a top manufacturer of veils and headpieces for the past 26 years.

Featured in magazines such as Brides, Modern Bride and Martha Stewart Weddings, Bel Aire Bridal’s collection also includes hairpins, jewelry, brooches, purses, cake toppers and bouquet jewelry.

Advantage Bridal, which carries Bel Aire products, recently chatted with the company team. Here’s what they had to say about trends, new products and what sets them apart.

What new trends are you seeing for brides?
Lace is becoming even more popular, while silver, pearl and crystal embellishments continue to be important.

Did the royal wedding increase demand for veils and tiaras?
Veils have always been strong, but the royal wedding increased interest in tiaras.

Which veil and tiara are similar to those Catherine Middleton wore?
We are currently developing a Kate tiara.

Has Bel Aire Bridal debuted any bridal accessories this year?
Our new line of couture jewelry, AVARA, debuted for Spring 2011 and is receiving an excellent response. This line of jewelry is made solely of Swarovski Elements, freshwater pearls and crystal quartz.

What sets your bridal belts apart? What type of gown looks best with a belt?
Bel Aire offers belts in a variety of styles – beaded, flowers, lace – and most are available in white, ivory or diamond white. A dress without a defined waistline is enhanced with a decorative belt.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
We anticipate that brides will want the total look. In addition to the perfect gown, a bride will want a coordinating veil and something for her hair whether it is a tiara, flower or decorative comb.

Below are gorgeous veils, rhinestone tiaras, hair combs, bridal hats and other wedding accessories by Bel Aire, which are available through Advantage Bridal. A little bridal envy goes a long way – have fun accessorizing!

Single Hydrangea Bouquet by Serendipity Floral Design

Wedding flowers don’t have to break the bank. You can have a beautiful bouquet for less with a few cost saving measures. Use a single blossom for the bridesmaids and three for the bridal bouquet – accent the bride’s flowers with different ribbon or bouquet jewelry. Pick flowers that are in season or a bloom similar to the more expensive favorite. Add lots of greenery for texture and savings. Think minimal, like Kate Middleton’s modest bridal bouquet. Want to really cut wedding expenses?

Make your own arrangements using silk flowers, paper flowers or flowers from the yard. Visit local wholesale flower markets, such as the Los Angeles Flower District for an endless selection that won’t break the bank! Prepare flowers the night before or the morning of the wedding to keep the flower bouquets fresh and refrigerate them. Large blooms like the hydrangea look gorgeous and create the illusion of more than one flower. A single flower bouquet can be modern, dramatic or romantic. Shop Advantage Bridal for artificial wedding bouquets, bouquet jewelry, crystal embellishments and more ideas for your bridal bouquet.

Eco Chic Wedding Flowers: Succulents

From modern bridal bouquets and wedding favors to stunning centerpieces and reception decor, consider succulents for your eco-chic event that is friendly on the eyes and earth! With spring here and summer fast approaching, succulents make great flower decorations for warm weather and outdoor weddings. Plus, they can be planted later for long-term enjoyment. Succulents definitely aren’t the typical fresh-cut floral bouquet and that alone can save money in the long run.

If you don’t want to do the entire wedding in succulent plants, you can pair them with roses and other flowers for beautiful contrast. The various hues of greens, grays and soft pinks provide an excellent backdrop for the bridal bouquet, but these drought-tolerant plants can also be the statement piece. Green weddings can be chic and there are plenty of modern brides who have proved that! Check out the gorgeous bridal bouquet below accented with a peacock feather.

Rhinestone & Crystal Bouquet Picks

An easy way to personalize a bride’s wedding bouquet is to add small details that make it truly unique. Bouquet jewelry, rhinestone and crystal picks, stem embellishments, and monogrammed ribbon do just that. For spring weddings, the following crystal accents add a whimsical touch to the flowers: butterflies, bumble bees, hearts, jewel clusters, flowers, starbursts, dragonflies, starfish, initial letters and other creative designs that will set your bouquet apart.

While pictures and magazines provide inspiration, select flowers and bridal bouquet jewelry that speak to your heart. Brides should look at their flower bunch and smile, even if only they appreciate each beautiful piece that went into the floral work of art. Besides, the wedding photographer will capture plenty of photographs of the bouquet for lasting memories.

When choosing a single flower for your bouquet, then jeweled accents really pop. We at Advantage Bridal love the look of the crystal stem accents; they come in various shapes and say “glamour.” Bouquet jewelry, flower picks and floral sprays can be made of rhinestones, crystals or pearls, as well as a combination of dazzling touches. Flower jewels in various colors are also available.

Brides can splurge a little on the wedding bouquet if they’re cutting the cost of decorative wedding flowers and centerpieces. Another option is a silk bridal bouquet, ribbon bouquet or crystal bouquet that can be stored and passed down. This eliminates the need to preserve the flowers and guarantees a unique flower bouquet.

We love this idea by Holly Heider Chapple Flowers. Ask your wedding florist or shop local craft stores for fun, printed ribbon that match the bouquets and your bridesmaids’ personalities.
