After that so important moment when your partner proposed, you probably started to think about everything that you need to get done before the big day. Choosing the venue, finding the perfect wedding dress, hiring a photographer and the list keeps on growing. I’m sure that at some point the thought of getting an amazing wedding bouquet crossed your mind.
So what do you need to take into consideration and why choose an alternative wedding bouquet?
First of all it has to match YOUR personal taste. After all, it is your wedding day and the only other opinion you need to account for is your fiancé’s. So are you going to be a traditional bride or a modern one? Are you going to add quirky details to your day or are you going to play it safe?
Then you need to choose the dress. Why? Because the perfect bouquet will enhance it! It will help to frame the dress in the photos and most of all it will complement your wedding dress without overshadowing it.
Now you may be wondering what the benefits are of breaking the norm and choosing an alternative origami wedding
These are my top 5:
Lightness - You’ll be holding the bouquet all day. While flowers, buttons or brooches are heavy (we’re talking about holding the equivalent to a bag of rice) an origami bouquet is light enough to be comfortable even after hours of having it in your hands.
Unique - Your wedding day is supposed to be as special as possible and you not only want to have a day that you’ll never forget but also want your guests to cherish it for years to come. An origami bouquet will give you a WOW factor. Your guests will remember your wedding for having something so special and so unique that very likely they have never seen before.
Environmentally friendly - Did you know that only 5 to 15% of the flowers sold in the UK are actually grown here? So for your flowers to arrive fresh on your wedding day they are transported by air which leads to a big carbon footprint. Most paper I use is made in Europe, preferably choosing recycled when available, and transported by land. Also because it’s paper it will last as long as your love so over time the carbon footprint will virtually disappear.
Control – With an alternative bouquet you won’t have to panic on your wedding morning. You can receive it days, weeks and even months in advance avoiding any nasty surprises on your big day. You will have full control and the colours you choose are the colours you get.
Allergies – Flowers can easily cause a sneeze attack to those who suffer from hay fever or other allergies. Even if you don’t suffer from allergies it is likely that someone in your close circle of family and friends do. You wouldn’t want your day tarnished because one of your guests spends the whole ceremony sneezing, would you?
