Each season new trends show up on the wedding scene, but there is one trend that's hung around for a while now.  Bridal bouquet bling has the universal appeal of added elegance and can bring your wedding flowers to the next level. 

However, as have all the trends, even bling has taken on new looks:

There are the commonly thought of sparkly rhinestones, pearls, and gems you can add in any number of ways to the handle or flowers of your bouquets and corsages.  But new materials are making an appearance on wedding flowers in interesting new ways.  Pheasant and peacock feathers can add a bit of whimsy and dramatic colors to any bouquet, corsage or boutonniere.  The more recently popular rustic or shabby chic style has opened up even more options.

Burlap has climbed the charts of style as a way brides can customize their wedding flowers for a more organic appeal.  Wrapping the handle of your bouquets with burlap or lace covered burlap is a beautiful option since it is a material that looks great in most settings, especially barn, garden, outdoor, or casual weddings.

Concerned about burlap being too bulky on boutonnieres?  Opt for twine or a raffia wrap for a matching look that's suitable for the more masculine arrangements in your wedding. 

Including a framed picture of a loved one somewhere on your bouquet is a meaningful way to honor someone important in your life.  Available in a variety of styles and finishes, these small frames can fit in between blooms or can be tied on the handle with a matching ribbon.

Broaches are another item that bring some class and shine and can even add sentimental value.  Whether as a focal point of the bouquet or as a dazzling accent, you get high impact with minimal effort:
