Is it ok to have dried flowers for your Wedding?
I think it is – and I’m going to talk about the reasons why today…
The perfect keepsake for your Wedding Day
You could keep a good dried flower arrangement placed in the correct position for up to five years after your Wedding Day. Just rearrange your bouquet for the perfect reminder.
Great for hot wedding days
Dried flowers are lower maintenance. If your Wedding day is hot and sunny, you don’t have to worry about keeping your bouquet or arrangements looking fresh in the heat of your Venue.
I do need to point out, though, that dried flowers are also very delicate and can flake easily – so I don’t recommend throwing the bouquet!
Perfect for different wedding styles
If you’re having a rustic, vintage, boho, or English Country style wedding, dried flowers for your wedding style would be a perfect look.
Buy now, Wed later
The one great thing about dried flowers is that they have a longer life. You could buy your bouquet or venue decoration flowers months before your Wedding Day. Providing they’re stored correctly will be fine until your big day. One more thing to get ticked off your wedding planning checklist!
What dried flowers could you have?
Pampas grass, fern, foxtail, bunny tail, delphinium, roses, lavender, carnations, hydrangea, gypsophila, palm, and eucalyptus all work well in bouquets and arrangements.
You could even use dried herbs, and then you have the added addition of the fragrance too.
And, if you’re struggling to find flowers to match your colour scheme, you could always get flowers such as pampas grass dyed…
Talking of colour…
Dried flowers are perfect if you’ve got earthy tones (pale pinks, greens, browns, and beiges) in your colour scheme.
The great thing about dried flowers is that you can re-use them. I’ve already mentioned about a keepsake after your Wedding.
But, dried flowers don’t just need to be in your bouquet or decor. Dried rose petals, for example, or other small flowers are perfect for confetti.
So, to finish off, dried flowers are something different, yet can look fabulous for your Wedding. Many Brides wouldn’t think about using them for their day, so they will give that extra wow factor for your Wedding.
