When I say the word alternative, what do you think of?

Did you think Gothic, or Boho?

What would you say if I told you that Alice In Weddingland was an alternative wedding blog.  Would you think it was jam packed with gothic and boho goodies.  Well, you’re kind of right but it’s sooooo much more.

Alternative in the dictionary sense is purely the non-traditional and that’s exactly what the Alice In Weddingland wedding blog is all about: breaking tradition and doing things differently.

And that’s exactly what Alice In Weddingland is: an alternative wedding blog giving you unique wedding ideas.  A wedding blog that breaks the norm, that breaks tradition and gets away from candy-floss, pink fluffy weddings.  I’m not saying I don’t like candy-floss or fluffy pink weddings, it’s just that there are already plenty of blogs out there giving you some great resources in that respect.

What I want to give you is a a little slice of internet heaven that is populated with all sorts of alternate, non-traditional, unique wedding ideas and today’s stunning wedding bouquets from Mary from the Little Bouquet Shop are just that! Although the bouquets you’re about to see are from Mary’s ‘gothic’ range, they are simply stunning and a divine example of just how elegant and feminine non-traditional flowers can look.

The alternative wedding blog

When I stumbled upon the Little Bouquet Shop I was instantly struck by Mary’s unique bouquet designs: they were different and really beautify, I mean really beautiful!  The colours were infused superbly, the mix of flora was stunning and the designs themselves just made each and every part of the bouquet exquisite!

I have to admit, I sat at Mary’s website for such a long time just staring at her bouquets!  They are truly that lovely!!!

Unique wedding bouquet designs

I think floristry is such a beautiful craft and there are some really, really super clever talented people out there creating outstanding pieces of art.  You can now have unique bouquets using fruit and veg!

Mary is a super talent designing beautiful, beautiful bridal bouquets and bringing to life the visions of her Brides:  she works closely with them to ensure they get just what they want.  Some of her Brides have even inspired her most popular ranges.

This is one talented lady!  Mary has an eye for putting flowers together like Rembrandt did with the paint on his canvas.

Tips from Mary from the Little Bouquet Shop

I must confess that my Brides inspired some of my most popular bouquets and creative work. There is no shortage of wonderful ideas from Brides who just need help transforming their vision into an actual bouquet… that’s where I come in.  In fact, one of my biggest challenges is to protect my Brides from idea overload and second-guessing every decision.

Making wedding plans in the right sequence will also help minimize stressful decisions. For example, I always recommend that my Brides select their wedding dress before thinking about their bouquet. It makes little sense to choose the perfect bouquet only to find out later that the wedding dress of your dreams doesn’t work with the bouquet you envisioned. Always make current decisions by building on the previous ones… it will greatly simplify the many decisions you’ll need to make leading up to the wedding day. Think of planning a wedding like making a multi-tiered cake. You can’t add the next tier until the previous one has been put in its place.

And for goodness sakes, have FUN! If you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed, you’re doing it wrong.

Mary

I think Mary’s bouquets are incredibly gorgeous and are upheld by beautiful photos that do them a great justice! Even the names she’s given to her staple designs are fabulous.

She’s got some spectacular bouquets in her website gallery and if you’re into black and white weddings like I am, you must check out her Pixie Stick bouquet :).   She is extraordinarily talented in her art and her alternative wedding bouquets are inspirational.

    What is the clear bouquet with the black ribbon made out of? It looks like crystal flowers? Just wanted to know what it’s made from.

    Thanks
