The winter time poses as a challenge for brides and their planning because not everything is as easily accessible as they are during the fall, spring, and summer. They don’t have the luxury of choosing between an indoor or an outdoor venue, bridesmaids dresses are harder to fit the feel of the wedding, and not many flowers are in season during the winter time. I came across this great company called Emplume – they create bouquets from preserved floral, high quality feathers, and luxurious ribbon. Although they're an edgy alternative to your traditional flower bouquet, they run fairly pricey. A bride's bouquet starts at $250, and a groom's boutonniere starts at $45. Maybe that fits your budget?
I love love the classic modern look of these couture flower alternatives. My favorite part is perhaps how unique and different they are from your average spread of wedding flowers. And, they can be shipped anywhere in the world!
It's good to be different.
