I decided to go with dkdesigns for the clay flower bouquets. I ordered corsages (for my aunt, grandmothers, SIL, Future Mother-In-Law, MOB, Sister), and a few table short/small table pieces for the cocktail tables. I was planning on gifting them to our guests. I like giving/having sentimental items in the house… So I can’t wait to save my bouquet for our kids to see… =o) (not to mention just to look at from time to time and have it fester up fond memories of our day)

I never even know about using feathers in bouquets before my wedding, but wish I had some a la Mrs. Leopard.  Here’s one I found of all feathers that’s really pretty:

I wrote a post on bouquets, with some unique alternatives. http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/11/21/a-bouquet-of-flowers/

In the end I ended up not having a bouquet at all. Hubby and I decided to do a lei ceremony and I didn’t want to have to spend $$ on a bouquet (that I would only hold for 30 minutes) and a lei. So we totally ditched the bouquet.

These aren’t necessarily traditional, but I could see something like these being popular at some point:

I will have a non traditional bouquet. My wedding is going to have Victorian undertones to it.  My BMs will be carrying Tussie Mussie’s with flowers in them.  

My mother has this little box that is antique that holds the Lords Prayer Book and the I think the Old Testiment.  It is a very nice antique/Victorian feel to it.  I will be adding a small amount of spray roses and some ribbon to it to match.

Congrats Ms Sushi! My DIY bouquet should be done by tomorrow and I will post pics, feathers and vintage rhinestones and I like the idea of the keepsake too. I love the ones by Amanda1986 on Etsy like this:

These are so cool!

I would love a beach wedding so that seashell bouquet is really interesting, but I’d probably be poking myself and others with it the whole time…..so a feather bouquet might be a better idea (less dangerous!)

@ lilindy: I love the lily-of-the-valley bouquet. Those are my sister’s favorite flowers, and our mom has a field of them in the backyard 🙂
