What Inspires Me: Bouquets #2

Who says you have to have flowers? Even in the 1950s, women were crafting paper bouquets.

If paper flowers aren't your thing there are other alternatives. Getting married at Coney Island, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk or the Santa Monica Pier? What about cotton candy for your bridesmaids' bouquets or bouquets of rock candy swizzle sticks?

Looking for something a little more elegant? Have you considered brooches or feathers? Want a rustic feel? What about cotton? Or pine cones?

Here are some alternatives that I came across. Depending on the style of your wedding one might work for you.

Did you have an eco-friendly bouquet? What did you chose?
