Bouquet and/or Centerpiece Origami Lily Flowers (progress)

So I was lurking around Offbeat Bride, as I often do, and decided to post an update about my finished 1,000 Origami Cranes.  A fellow member posted on my update and so I checked out her updates and saw the most lovely bouquet of origami lilies and fell in LOVE so I decided I had to try to make one!  I made a single lily and it was relatively easy and didn’t take a horribly long time so I decided to make a ton of multi-colors and see if I could at least use them in the centerpieces if they didn’t work out as a bouquet.  I’m still undecided on if they will be a bouquet(s) and/or centerpiece flowers, but I decided I’m going to make as many as possible and then decide later!

The "vase" is one of my unpainted centerpiece bottles that will be painted after it finally warms up outside!



Feather Bouquets

While I’m posting about Bouquet Ideas, I’ll add a quick post about feather bouquets.  These are also amazing!  I don’t think they fit in the style with my wedding but they look AWESOME so I had to share!

All of these photos are from so click on any of them to check out their website.

Elegant Black and White. Love it!


Bead Bouquet Idea

LOVE this! Click on image to be directed to Etsy seller.

Love love love!

I just had to make a quick post to say how much I LOVE this bouquet!  It’s not within my budget but OMG I LOVE IT!!

Christmas Ornament Bouquet – Option 2

I stumbled across another Christmas ornament bouquet and I love this one even more than the first!

Seriously those are AMAZING!  I would love to have one for me that has my wedding colors (maybe red and aqua/blue? or orange too?) and then have my bridesmaids have the full colors.  Love love love!

Best part of all? Offbeat Bride has a tutorial! It even has LED lights in it! Ahhh Love it!!!!

Sparkly Crystal Bouquet

Yet another bouquet.. sparkly crystals! I like the idea of this bouquet, but I think it’s a little too plain. I want something with a bit more color! I think it would work well to put the crystals within another bouquet, to sprinkle them in with some flowers or Christmas Ornaments or whatever I choose to do. I need a little sparkly bling on my big day (aside from my ring, obviously). More

Brooch Bouquet

Another bouquet idea. I like this idea, but I’m not sure if it’s “me.” Since my wedding will be in a 1920’s theater, it seems appropriate to use vintage brooches and it would be unique and last forever (and if I ever get bored with it, I can possibly dismantle and reuse the brooches!). The best part is that I can easily make it myself ahead of time and it wouldn’t get squished or wrinkled. Offbeat Bride even has a tutorial and it seems relatively easy to make.

I wonder if it would be kinda heavy.

The more I look at it, the more I really like this one. It has flowers, so it’s fairly “traditional” looking but it’s also unique and something I can make myself.

8-bit Bouquet

My fiance and I are a little bit of gamer nerds and we both grew up playing Nintendo and other games, so I am thinking of a tasteful way of bringing in our gamerness to our wedding (hey, it’s our wedding and we should get to bring a little bit of “us” into it!).  I’ve been obsessed with Offbeat Bride since I came across it a few months ago and I found this bride’s post about their 8-bit wedding.  I think her bouquet is awesome but I’m not sure if our guests would really understand what it is.  It’s just another idea.  I could also incorporate similar 8-bit flowers into table centerpieces or other decorations, but it’s also a fun idea for a bouquet.

Regardless of what I decide to do, I want it to be unique and “me.”  I don’t want boring flowers that everyone has at their wedding or something that I don’t want to hold onto forever.
