Chances are, you’ve spent a lot of time and money choosing the flowers and colour scheme for your wedding bouquet. You have probably done the same for your bridesmaids and any flower girls. We think that it’s such a shame that after the ceremony and wedding photographs, brides often leave their bouquet and forget about it. To avoid this problem and to make the most of your beautiful blooms, today’s post is packed full of helpful advice on what you can do with your wedding bouquet when you’re not holding it.

You can hand your wedding bouquet to your mum or one of your bridesmaids during the ceremony. When you get to your wedding reception, we suggest putting it in a jar or a vase to keep it safe. You could wrap a luggage tag around the jar with ‘Bride’ written on it. It will look lovely in your wedding venue and also your photographs.

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to using lace ribbon at weddings, but one of my favourite ideas is by using it in your wedding bouquet. Simply wrap lace ribbon around the stems of your blooms. You could even add a pretty brooch or mini photo-frame to the lace for a personal touch.

Lace Table Décor

Forget hessian or sequin table runners, we adore lace table runners! They are such a stunning addition to any wedding table and will look completely elegant. Add a few mason jars wrapped with lace ribbon along the table – they’ll look fab filled with pretty flowers or dainty tea-lights. Why not wrap lace ribbon around cutlery, napkins and wedding favour bags too?
