Orchids are still a very versatile flower to use in your bouquet. They come in so many different colors. Using a pale pink can give you a soft and romantic feel, while all green can give a rustic, earthy vibe.
Pairing mainstream flowers with something unexpected and lesser-known, is one way to make a bouquet cost friendly and truly unique. Using plants, berries, pods, fruits, and even vegetables can add a that layer of texture and funkiness.
