plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I definitely think one the big trends for this year is alternative bouquets.  Brides and florists are getting really creative with their designs by choosing exotic flowers and fruits, or option to use fabrics or antique brooches.

A great way to cut costs, or just do something different is to incorporate fruit into your bouquet.  Not only will it give it some depth, but it will help it to be more fragrant.  And, I absolutely love the colors in this particular bouquet, featured on Design*Sponge.  It’s a great Spring or Summer bouquet, and it’s great to see some green incorporated.

Do not be afraid to get creative with your bouquet designs. Creative does not mean non-traditional. Just try something with vibrant colors, or different flowers.  And, ask for help from your florist – chances are they are more than willing to do something a little different and memorable.


  1. That is gorgeous, and you’ve got a snack readily at hand if you get hungry!

  2. I totally agree. I have seen some great winter bouquets with Kale incorporated and even some artichoke, GORGEOUS. I am loving this new trend!

  3. Very interesting bouquet! Did they use kumquats?
