One of the easiest and most affordable places to put a personal touch on your wedding day is with your bridal bouquet.  Today, we are sharing ways we customize our bride’s bouquets that you can take away.  When I’m in New York, there are tons of great ribbon shops around our office and I love finding pretty pieces to use for my brides. You can source these in many other places though too, etsy, websites, and even antique stores.

Another way to add sweet details to your bouquet, and also bring in tradition is by adding family pieces. We tied this bride’s grandmother’s engagement ring around the stem wrap, and a family embroidered handkerchief wrapped around the stems added a traditional look.

For this pink and green wedding, we used lots of pattern. Luckily, we found a great fabric that we used throughout the design… we made linens with the fabric as the toppers, covered the bar with it, and also used it to wrap the bouquet for a super custom touch.

If you want to go with a simple ribbon for your bouquet, see if you can have initials embroidered on it at a local embroiderer. This is a great way to incorporate a “something blue” and it’s something you could keep and pass down as well.

Many of our brides have pieces from family members, either who are no longer with them, or can’t be there, or are just being passed down because of the occasion. I love the idea of pinning them onto the bouquets as an added personalization piece.
