Sorry, No Flowers

Not every wedding needs to be festooned with fresh flowers. Take a look at these bouquets that are beautiful no-flower alternatives that you can enlist all your friends to help you with to get a wedding look that is altogether your own. Make it fun. Make it your own personal style. It's just got to be authentic. These ideas WON'T work if you are just into it for a trend.
In the photo above the camelia bouquet was created from pages from a novel. Making a bouquet like this from romantic love stories would be even better!
You can buy kits so you're not rewinding Youtube videos for an hour-long process. It makes it a lot easier and keeps the flowers looking like they weren't made five minutes before the wedding. Paper Source, online, carries kits like this.
Beach it up! Haha. Paper isn't the ONLY way to go off script with your bouquet. Tropical beachy numbers like this can be a huge hit with just the right about of stars and shells. The tulle netting elevates it with feminine softness.
This is what coarse paper and felt looks like in a bouquet. Switching up the colors into the grays like this is pretty on-trend right now,along with coral.
Would you EVER BELIEVE that burlap could be so beautiful? So elegant? Don't agree?! haha This is a great expression of soft alternative for brides harnessing the trend of BoHo Chic. The pearls bring it together. Not digging the neutrals? Simply spray with non-toxic craft paint.
Would you consider nixing the fresh flowers in favor of bouquets like these?
I like the creativity and cool use of non flowers. For me, however, I would have to have real fresh flowers.
Who designed all these beautiful flower ideas. It's really impressive. I can't believe the amount of detail, Must have taken a lot of time.

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
