As summer transitions to autumn, we find our thoughts turning to falling leaves, oversized sweaters, and pumpkin spice. This season offers so many wonderful design elements for weddings, and one in particular that we wanted to highlight; dried flowers. Dried florals are an increasingly popular trend in weddings.
Delicate and understated, dried flowers complement bohemian and rustic themes and can be featured in so many ways: boutonnières and bouquets, ceremony backdrops and reception centerpieces, seating assignments and garnished cocktails. Dried floral also makes a great addition to menu signage, table numbers, and desserts and can serve as creative ceremony confetti. Wheat, lavender, baby’s breath, and wildflowers lend themselves particularly well to dried arrangements, but roses and tropical greens have made for eye-catching installations as well.
Not only do dried flowers look amazing, they’re practical. After all, if the temperature rises, they’ll be no reason to worry about your decor wilting in the heat. And you’ll automatically have professionally preserved keepsakes from your big day to admire for years to come.
For a fresh, modern take, opt for fewer fresh florals on your wedding day. And look to the ladies at Alluring to help you along your way.
