Flower bouquets are a fantastic addition to your wedding; they let you work your colours and theme into your ceremony, they give you something to do with your hands in photos, and it’s considered socially acceptable to chuck them at people.
We’ve looked at alternative bouquet ideas before, but floral hoop bouquets deserve their own special mention.
Hoop bouquets: alternative wedding bouquet idea
Where traditional flower bouquets are bound together at the stems, hoop bouquets have flowers wound or tied around a hoop – like a woven wreath or a metal embroidery hoop.
Hoop bouquets are easier to hold
Where your only choices with a flower bouquet are in your hand or in your teeth, you can hold a hoop bouquet more easily, clutching it like a purse, holding it on your arm, or even putting it over your shoulder, so your hands are free to hold more important things, like your partner’s hand. (Or a champagne flute.)
And – being mostly handle – they’re much easier for little hands to hold too, if you have young flower girls or page boys in your wedding party!
Work your theme into your wedding with a hoop bouquet
Having a handle gives you more than an easy grip, though – it’s another easy place you can work more of your style and personality into your wedding. Tie ribbon or tassles from the handle. Or make the hoop itself a statement, using geometric shapes for a modern, stylish wedding or woven branches for a nature-inspired day.
