Brides are forgoing the bouquet toss, saving money and getting the exact bridal bouquet they want with seed beads. Long gone are the days of having to worry about what flowers are in season or pesky floral allergies. These do-it-yourself bouquets cost a fraction of what fresh flowers cost and are definitely not being tossed at the ceremony.

Beautiful seed bead bridal bouquets offer a handmade, one-of-a-kind design element to weddings and can be treasured long after the big day--no wilting or fading. These beaded bridal bouquets, handcrafted from seed bead flowers, can be passed down for future generations and elegantly displayed as a memory of your special union.

Alternative bridal bouquets are becoming more and more popular as brides opt for wreaths, balloons, paper flower bouquets, bridal pinwheels, dainty wrist corsages, lanterns, beaded single stems and seed bead bouquets. These bouquet ideas can be extended to bridesmaids' posies and boutonnieres, and gifts for special guests including mother-of-the-bride and groom.
