Who said a wedding bouquet needs to be made up of flowers? Sure, flowers are beautiful, but they only last a day or two. Wedding flowers can also be really expensive, so if you can find other ways to decorate your wedding, you have an opportunity to save some serious cash. Whether you want to save money, keep your bouquet until you are both old and grey, or flowers just aren’t your thing, check out these beautiful non-floral wedding bouquet alternatives might be the inspiration you need. Whether you’re planning an elegant, formal affair or a whimsical party, you’re sure to find something that strikes your fancy on this list.


With a little glue and some careful scissor skills, you can create the bouquet of your dreams out of mere paper. We found this on one Etsy!
