4 Tips for Creating a Crystal Bead Bridal Bouquet

Learn four tips for creating a crystal bead bridal bouquet from floral designer Sarah Brysk Cohen in this Howcast video about wedding flowers.

Crystal bead bridal bouquets can be a really interesting way to give some sparkle and shine to your wedding flowers. You can really choose a range. You could decide to do a bridal bouquet that’s entirely made from, let’s say brooches or beads, that’s not flowered at all. That’s not organic at all. That’s completely made of something inorganic.

Or you can do something sort of fun, which is to incorporate either crystal beads or any kind of vintage jewelry into a bouquet, of actually organic elements like flowers. We do that sometimes and I think it’s a really beautiful way to go. Typically, it’s something that’s a more vintage look, so something a little bit Victorian, with a nice little surprise in the center.

It’s got a crystal bead or something sparkling or shining that just catches your eye. Another tradition that’s really nice is, we have brides who are Catholic and who use a rosary, and they incorporate that into the bouquet. That’s a really sweet way to go, especially if that’s a tradition that’s important to you.
