Weddingbee reader Geoyce wrote us asking for more information about breakaway bouquets, so I did a little research on them since they’re a really interesting twist on the bouquet toss tradition.
Breakaway bouquets are comprised of several mini bouquets loosely tied together. Each of these mini bouquets also have a cake charm and maybe even the charm’s meaning attached to it. When the bride tosses her bouquet, it breaks apart and several people catch a mini bouquet! You can have your florist create one for you, or try your hand at making your own.
Jewelry by Rhonda has an extensive list of cake charm meanings, so you can pick specific charms with meanings you like. A beehive charm for example means “You Will Have a Gratifying Life of Help and Service to Others.” 🙂
I would have loved to have done this for my wedding so lots of gals could have caught the bouquet. Plus everyone could participate so your single gal pals won’t feel singled out.
