Today’s bride demands and expects the latest products for her wedding, so why is she still using the paper plate bouquet like the one that her grandmother used?

The bride uses her wedding to make a statement about who she is, from her choice of gown, flowers, colors and music. All these elements work together to create an image of who the bride and groom are as a couple. But the wedding rehearsal is stuck being run like her grandmothers, with a paper plate and stick-on-bows from her bridal shower. Most of these are so unattractive that the bride ‘forgets’ to even bring the paper plate bouquet to her wedding rehearsal.

Rehearsal Bouquets are fashioned from candies, chocolates and artificial flowers to create the look and feel of a floral bouquet, but instead of wilted flowers at the end of the evening, the bride and groom have candy to nibble on during their honeymoon.

Crystal Marler has worked in the wedding industry for five years and saw a real need for this product. “(As a bridal consultant) I have worked with almost a hundred brides and their wedding rehearsals, 8 out of 10 of my brides would “forget” their paper plate bouquets. Then as the brides were walking down the aisle on their wedding day I was trying to teach her how to properly hold the flowers. The brides that have practiced with the carry their flowers like a pro.”

Shay Even, daughter of the duo, had this observation; “With the way the economy is we’re seeing a lot of brides getting double duty out of their rehearsal bouquets. They use them to decorate the sign-in table or cake table. Sometimes they give the candy rehearsal bouquet as a gift to the flower girl or the couple that has been married the longest,” is a product that has finally brought the wedding rehearsal out of the 1950’s and into the 21st century.
