There are many reasons brides may choose to stray from the traditional flowers on their big day. Some of the main reasons would be the lack of sustainability of fresh flowers and wanting to be a bit more eco-friendly. Some brides want to shine their whimsical personality and sometimes using something other than fresh flowers can express that a bit more. And some like to keep the bouquet and display it for years after the big day has occurred and with fresh flowers that is just not possible.
Here are eight alternatives to fresh flowers for your wedding day we really love!
Sola wood flowers (see more sola wood flower bouquets here ) Our top pick these wood flowers come in pre-shaped flowers that look so close to fresh flowers. If you are a full DIY bride you can buy the flowers and dye them any colors you want using just acrylic craft paint. Don't want to make your own bouquet? No problem places like Etsy have a ton of independent sola wood floral artists!
