When Debbie asked if I’d like to review her vintage wedding bouquets I definitely wasn’t expecting something as cool and stylish as this to land in my inbox… for some reason I was expecting them to be floral. These exquisite creations are just fab – exactly the sort of unique touches that I like to feature on LMW.
Debbie uses vintage and vintage-style jewellery and buttons mixed with crystal and pearl beads and luxe fabrics like silk, satin, velvet and lace to create spectacular bespoke bridal bouquets.
Each bouquet is a one-off individual piece created from antique and vintage store finds, which means that every bride can be sure she will be walking down the aisle with her own unique creation. Whats more it doesn’t die straight after the wedding, its eco-friendly and can be kept forever (and lent to friends that are getting married – something borrowed!)
Debbie also has off-the-peg bouquets available to buy immediately which means that even the most last-minute-bride can have a stunning unique bouquet within days of ordering. And for those of you wanting to coordinate the vintage look across the whole wedding party then she can create matching items too – bridesmaid posies, corsages and buttonholes.
A little word from Debbie…
“A vintage wedding is a fantastic opportunity for brides to include sentimental family heirlooms in their day. I like to suggest that they dig out treasured items of jewellery – or even buttons from an item of clothing that means something special – to be wired into their unique personalised bouquet. This way brides can “wear” meaningful items that would perhaps look
out of place if worn in a more traditional manner.
The things guests tend to remember about weddings are the personal touches that are unique to the couple – and it is those same familiar touches that will help a bride feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease, ready to enjoy her special day”
