Bridal Bouquet Fun Ideas

The bridal bouquet seems to be thought of as only the flowers the bride holds, but this is far from the truth.  The birdal bouquet certainly may serve as a focal point of many activities or gestures.

During the ceremony, there are many traditional floral possibilities.  Of course, one is to present a flower to the couple’s mothers.  It certainly makes the molthers happy and the guests always smile when it is included in the ceremony.  It could be carried to another level though by presenting the fathers a flower also.

Flowers given to the parents may be used several ways.  The father’s flowers may have a verse or poem attached to it so they may read it as part of the ceremony.  The flower may also be given in remembrance of those family members no longer with us and a chance given to the fathers to say a short something about that family member.

Many brides like the unity candle idea but not using candles.  The bride might consider having her wedding bouquet designed as many small bouquets bound together.  At a designated time during the wedding ceremony, the bouqueet is “taken apart” into the smaller bouquets and given to people, such as the parents of the couple.

Some brides really want to keep their bouquet but are open to having some fun with it during the reception or the ceremony and there are several ways to do this.  You might consider “dollar dances” with the bouquet.  It would be on display somewhere near the dance floor or with the DJ, so that once the “dollar” is paid, someone has the right to dance with the bouquet.

Throwing the bouquet is almost expected at every reception, but there are options to how that is done.  Brides sometimes opt not to hang on to their bouquet and simply pick a single flower for their memory book and toss the rest when it is appropriate.  Other brides will have a “throw away” bouquet to toss so they may keep the original.  If you have alot of single women at your wedding, you might consider having a break apart bouquet the florist has tied together loosely so that when the bouquet is tossed, it comes apart into several smaller bouquets and more get to “catch” the flowers.

Take a look at your guest list and see what might work for you and your personality, but most of all, do what you like best.
