Artificial Wedding Bouquets
The great thing about artificial wedding bouquets is that you get to keep them forever as a lasting memory of your wedding day. Real flowers soon wilt and fade but artificial flowers can stay looking fabulous!

The button bouquet is an offbeat idea that is catching on with the modern bride and there are some magnificent button bouquet creations. But for a cheaper version why not get a bridal corsage to act as your bouquet? This lace and pearl corsage includes a button along with gorgeous pearl beads set in a felt and paper flower corsage made from the pages of a Jane Austen book – you can’t get much more romantic than that! Try inserting a few white feathers at the back for more detail if you like!
Or how about a pomander? This Sola Rose Pomander bag is hand carved in natural sola wood and looks stunning. The white ribbon bow at the top can later be used to hang on the back of your bridal suite door or in your home as a permanent memento. Spray a little perfume over it for a sweet smelling fraqrance!
