Above and Beyond Flowers

Unique and Beautiful Wedding Bouquets!

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers! Who doesn’t love the feel that flowers bring to any occasion? They brighten up a venue with vibrant colors, add touches of memorable scents and can bring a smile to almost anyone. However, unlike the common misconception that all weddings must be full of flowers, your Big Day can be just as special with a few other creative touches.

If you’re a couple looking to add a pop of distinctiveness to your wedding, why not try something unconventional with your bouquets? This area of your wedding really allows brides and grooms to look outside the box and create an imaginative personal feel to the ceremony.

We understand that couples have a difficult time trying to grasp their creativity during the wedding planning process. We get it; this is a very exciting and whirlwind time. But have no fear; our Historic Mankin Mansion experts are here to lend a helping hand with these exceptional flowerless bouquet ideas!

This bouquet is beyond perfect for a spring/summer garden wedding. The bouquet is completely made out of colorful paper butterflies attached to a wire stem. Simply add a beautiful ribbon around the middle and you have a splendid bouquet that is sure to get your guests talking.
