The practice of drying flowers for ornamental purposes goes back as far as Ancient Egypt. For a naturally rustic look why not carry a dried flower bouquet on your wedding day? There are many great things about dried flower bouquets – you can make or purchase them ahead of time, they’ll be less expensive, you can keep them long after the wedding as a keepsake, and you don’t have to worry about them wilting on your big day. If you absolutely must have fresh flowers, I understand, but if you’re open to alternatives these beauties I’ve collected below might inspire you. What flowers make for the best dried bouquets? Typically wildflowers are a good bet. Lavender, strawflowers, wheat, caspia, larkspur, daisies etc. Garden roses and hydrangea can also work. Mixing in other natural elements such as dried seed pods or feathers can create even more interesting textures and compositions.
P.S. If you love dried flowers you’ll love Lady O shoes which incorporate real dried flowers (each pair is unique!) into their pretty floral shoes!
