I went a little nuts earlier today (after taking the medicine for my ear infection of which one of the two is a cough syrup which made me woozy and the super happy blogger) when I found the newest forever bouquet that I heart sooo much! And another tutorial from an earlier Martha mag about the seasheall bouquets!
I have a new Etsy shop i heart so much!!! Its in my favorites already! If I go for a wedding in a tropical local! this may just be the one or have made or me make some of these shell floral accents to go in a real flower bouquet!
The etsy vendor with the forever shell bouquets is by Kimberly Aurora: Romantic flowers and I think you will fall in love with this bouquet! It’s fabric, vintage glitz, and shells…I LOVE this so much! the second bouquet is one from Martha’s mag a while back. I have on my blog links also to the DIY for these shell bouquet picks to add to your bouquet for a tropical flair!
Aren’t these gorgeous?

I am actually considering now getting a forever bouquet, and having a florist add or wire in around the base at the outside of the bouquet some real flowers (garden roses or peonies) and then remove them after the wedding and save/dry the petals and of course have a forever bouquet always too!
Is that a silly idea? methinks it will work fine! And be unique.

These are really cool and unique. They’d be great for a beach wedding!

I think both are absolutely gorgeous! I swear..the seashell bouquets are wanting to make me do something next summer at the beach!
and of course, I’ve DIY’d a summer centerpiece that would be oh so gorgeous along with this!
Dammit..If I do not get married at the beach, PLEASE PLEASE steal this style and do it for yourself! I want somebody to have this gorgeous-ness for their big day

I’m with you bellenga.. I want to throw out all my hard work & ideas and just get married on a beach because of this post! I was on your blog earlier & I fell in love with the orange shell bouquet that looks like a flower!

nice! we were married last week on a beach and i didnt have any flowers as it seemed too hard to arrange (no florist on the island being one). i did have a flower in my hair that i put in on the way to the cermony that i picked out of a tree on the way to the ceremony
but the staff on the island actually built & decorated with fresh flowers (from the same tree) an arch for us to be married in front of – a total surprise for us!

Now Eloping..that sounds fabulous!
I just love the differences of these bouquets. One with real flowers, another using vintage fabrics and trim, and another made of just seashells.
It is gonna be REAAAAALLLY INTERESTING this time next year when we get to see what in the heck I actually DO pull together and roll out for our wedding. That is….assuming the ring is placed on hand six months in advance (or earlier) for summertime. That is one part of this I am not enjoying. I’ll put that on another board though.

@bellenga: Oh my ‘lanta!! I love the white one. My mom just reconnected with some friends in FL who are part of a seashell society and they agreed to make me one. I LOVE the handle on the white one!!
