Gather your favorite flowers and build an entire wall. That’s right, a whole wall so you can take beautiful pictures and kiss your new partner for life in front of and other floral merriment.

This idea has been around for a while, but still retains its wow factor. The latest thing is submerging unexpected and even strange flora like protea and baby’s breath.

5. Hoop Bouquets

There are alternatives to the traditional bridesmaid bouquets; the latest trend is to arrange flowers at the bottom of a metal hoop. They look modern and are easy to carry!
