Interested in throwing a “green” wedding, or otherwise want eco-friendly options for bridal and bridesmaid bouquets? Rather than purchasing fresh flowers for bouquets, which will only wilt and add to the world’s trash, think about making your own sustainable bridal bouquets. Such bouquets are unique and work as mementoes from the special day.
There are numerous alternatives to traditional bridal bouquets, such as button, bead, jewelry and feather bouquets. Each requires the reuse of assorted objects, such as your sizable button collection, and allows you to be as creative as you want. Use solid colors only, such as white or clear beads, or opt for colorful bouquets, such as those made with an array of buttons and feather types. Even celebrities opt for sustainable bouquets, such as Miranda Lambert’s dazzling brooch bouquet when she wed fellow country music star Blake Shelton. These bouquets also allow for personal touches, such as jewelry pieces with special meaning, objects from first dates and anniversaries, and anything else that represents your upcoming union.

Check out the following tutorials for button, feather, bead and brooch bouquets. Follow the directions exactly, put your own glamorous spin on a bouquet, or get inspired to create a different type of eco-friendly bridal bouquet! Have fun!
