The Brooch Bouquet

Brooch bouquets are an enchanting alternative to the cut flower head-to-head wedding bouquet. Perfect for those having their second wedding or quirky brides keen to go against the grain. We don’t foresee this trend dying down any time soon, so if you haven’t had a play with an armature yet… why not?! It’s your blank slate, an essential piece of equipment for forward-thinking creativity, and no one said you can’t include fresh flowers as well!

The Floral Headband

Headdresses, hairclips, headbands, fascinators, dainty accessories… anything floral and attached to the head is a winner in our book. We love that the floral headdress trend has snowballed so much. Regularly pictured in bridal magazines and wedding blogs they’re a brilliant way to add a little extra to that wedding sale, plus they’re so much fun to design and make!

Wrist corsages are a basic essential on a wedding order. We’re sure you all know how to make them in a whizz, but how creative are yours? The Corsage Creations range of wristlets make the corsage-making process so much more fun. Simply pick the perfect style, each one specially designed so that you can customise it far more than you could with basic wires and ribbon.
