If flower’s aren’t your thing, there are still oodles of alternative options for
your bouquet or centrepieces. I hope these ideas will get those cogs whirring and help you come up with something fun and unique for your own wedding.
First, think about what your interests are. Maybe it’s books…
Handmade book-lovers wedding
An origami wedding
Or you’d prefer a mishmash of everything you like!
Taxidermy and skull wedding
Maybe you’re really into skulls…
Maritime goth wedding
Gothic and literacy Lower East Side wedding
Austin anime and robot wedding
There are plenty of ways to bring aspects of life into your centrepieces without traditional cut flowers. How about logs, billy balls and succulents?
Antler and animal theme
This cute terrarium is such a fun idea!
60s inspired punk rockabilly wedding
Or what about dried flowers?
Incredible queer wedding at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens
I love the idea of potted herbs
Or plants – you could give them out as gifts afterwards too!
Nature and geometry Eden Project wedding
Fruit or veg is another unique option
Harvest festival wedding
Whatever you choose it should definitely fit in with your theme
Music and cat-lover wedding
Whether that be Alice in Wonderland…

Retro golf club wedding
Or painstakingly handcrafted paper flowers?
Handmade rainbow windmill wedding
You could even make them out of maps to suit an international theme
