6 creative alternatives to a wedding

The bridal bouquet is an indispensable accessory for most brides. Matching the color concept or motto, it can become a real highlight and complete the look.

According to old wedding customs, many women throw their bouquet into the waiting group of women on the wedding day – superstition suggests that the catcher should marry next.

But what if the only single guests are little girls? Or do you just don’t like this tradition? We have put together the coolest alternatives to the custom of “throwing a bridal bouquet differently” for you.

1. Targeted passing on instead of throwing a bridal bouquet

Your best friend is getting married soon? Then give her your bridal bouquet instead of throwing it as a “lucky charm” and companion during your wedding planning. She’s sure to be delighted to have something from an already happy bride.

Some time ago a great video spread via YouTube: At a wedding party, the bride hands her bouquet to a completely surprised lady – and suddenly her boyfriend kneels in front of her and proposes to her.

Yes, this is also a fantastic opportunity to perform the custom of throwing a bridal bouquet in a different way and to give the bouquet a very special meaning again.

It is just as nice to give the bridal bouquet to a couple who has (had) their wedding anniversary recently or soon, to a birthday child or the mother of the bride – great joy is guaranteed.



2. Split bridal bouquet

Even the composition of the bouquet can be something very special. Distribute individual flowers or mini bouquets to the guests sitting in the center aisle during the wedding ceremony. If the bride then walks by, she collects them – this is how the bridal bouquet is created on site.

Afterwards, these individual bouquets or flowers can then be distributed to guests such as mothers, sisters, groomsmen or the like as part of the bridal speech.

Shared memories are, after all, the best!

Tip: In this case, place small vases near the guests who will receive a mini bridal bouquet.

3. Honor the deceased instead of throwing them

A dear relative or friend can unfortunately no longer be at your wedding because he / she has already passed away?

As an alternative, instead of throwing the bridal bouquet, you may want to place it at the grave a day or two after the wedding.



4. Re-tying ribbons as an alternative to throwing a bridal bouquet

We also discovered this idea for throwing the bridal bouquet in a different way on YouTube: Long, pretty ribbons are tied to the bridal bouquet (e.g. made of satin). The single women stand in a circle around the bride and each take a ribbon in their hands.

The bride then cuts one ribbon at a time. The lady with the last ribbon will be married next

So the bride keeps her bouquet and the sense of tradition is still preserved.



5. Small second bouquet: Throw the bridal bouquet differently

Another way your gorgeous bridal bouquet stays with you is one second small bridal bouquet to have made. With the small bridal bouquet you can then carry out the wedding custom of throwing the bridal bouquet without losses.

No matter what you choose, we wish you a wonderful wedding day full of fun – whether with a traditional throw or a bridal bouquet with a different twist.

Our plush throwing bouquet is probably the funnest alternative for throwing a bridal bouquet in a different way!

Instead of a pretty bridal bouquet of flowers, a “bridal bouquet” stuffed animal is thrown into the crowd of unmarried guests. If you exchange it shortly before the actual throw, perplexed faces and laughter are guaranteed!

Instructions on how to make such a sweet throwing bouquet yourself in 5 minutes can be found in the DIY article on the plush throwing bouquet.
