We’re certainly firm believers in making your wedding day all about the both of you. No two wedding days should be the same, with those quirky alternatives and personalised touches that tell your unique story vital to proceedings.
With this in mind, the alternative bouquet has swept the summer wedding scene, with macramé fibre art, vintage cameras, sheet music, brooches and even paper pom poms offering something different from the average fresh flower arrangement. Those looking to push the boundaries even further, however, should explore the latest trend in groomswear…
Introducing the beard bouquet!
When it comes to the must-have accessories every groom should be rocking on their wedding day, things don’t get quirkier than the beard bouquet.
The beard bouquet is quite literally that – a floral arrangement that adorns the groom’s beard instead of being carried in hand by the bride-to-be. Floral accessories have been the ‘done thing’ for brides for as long as we can remember as The Wedding Community explains:
“Flowers are one of the most important elements of your wedding day. They provide colour, vibrancy and scent to your event. Many wedding dress collections incorporate flowers into the designs, from delicate beading on the bodice to some amazing floral wedding dress designs with huge organza corsages covering a whole skirt. You can continue this theme with floral bridal accessories too.”
The beard bouquet allows stylish grooms to get in on the action with a delightful floral arrangement for their faces!
The top beard bouquet ideas for 2023
Whether it’s your features you are looking to frame with flowers or a pop of colour you’d like to add to a more minimalist ensemble, there is so much inspiration out there for grooms looking to sport a blooming beard bouquet.
Go small and intricate with a splash of gypsophila or embrace a wilder, more elaborate display with some greenery and flower varieties that wouldn’t be out of place in an English garden to find a look you love.
You can even use your beard bouquet design to coordinate with your bride’s bouquet as well as your wider wedding theme and colour scheme. It’s not just flowers that can be used to create a beautiful bouquet for the beard. Twigs, berries, thistles and other natural foliage offer endless inspiration and incredible texture.
More ways to personalise your groom style
If a beard bouquet is a little too ‘out there’, there are many more ways to personalise your groom style and make your big day look uniquely yours. Engraved mementoes, creative buttonhole designs, custom suits, and embroidered pocket squares are all fantastic touches that’ll make any groom feel extra special on this very important day.
Playing with colour and texture (you’ll find wedding suits and accessories in everything from silk and linen to wool, cashmere and velvet!) throughout your wider ensemble is another option for enjoying a winning wedding look.
Use your big day as an opportunity to be bold and stylish, while complementing your wedding colour palette and the season.
