A strand of pearls perfectly hugs this simple white bouquet. The pearls cover almost the entire stem, with just an inch or two of green peeking through the bottom. Between the tiny bit of colour and the various textures, this bouquet adds just enough aesthetics without taking away from your gown. Turn this into a DIY project with a hot glue gun and an inexpensive, long strand of fake pearls from your local craft store.

For lovers of delicate lace, this is the bouquet you never knew you’ve always wanted. Accenting a simple white bouquet, a small piece of lace wraps around the stem to give that vintage, delicate feel, perfect for a beach or garden wedding. The best part about this bouquet is that the lace can come from just about anything, including your mother’s or grandmother’s old wedding dress or veil. With that kind of sentimentality, your walk down the aisle will become that much more special. As an added bonus, this bouquet can serve as your ‘something old’.

The stems are wrapped in a soft, white fabric with a gorgeous (and blinged out!) brooch, with a pearl accent in the middle to really give it that vintage feel. The rest of the bouquet has smaller brooches embedded throughout the flowers to give that extra glimmer of glamour.
