Another beautiful fall day here in Kentucky - BUT my thoughts are very much on the people facing the devastating weather on the Eastern Coast.
A while back I was asked to make some dried floral arrangements for a wedding. I have made many wedding bouquets over the years but never a "dried" one believe it or not. This beautiful bride knew exactly what she wanted and armed with pictures from Pinterest - here is what we came up with.
Simple and rustic for her "harvest-style" wedding...
The boutonnieres were simply made up of preserved leaves, wheat, some centers from purple cone flower, caspia, a needle-like burgundy dyed greenery, a touch of burlap and all tied up with twine.
A few corsages for the MOTB, MIL and others were a lil' larger with some preserved lime-light hydrangea and golden yarrow mixed in.
And lastly for the beautiful bride, Jade, and her attendants - small handheld bunches of all the flowers tied with burlap and twine.
A few pearl pins just for the bride - still she wanted nothing fancy...
Her attendants were the same just a bit smaller.
I wouldn't hesitate to use dried flowers again - they really did turn out pretty I think - especially for this time of year.
Best wishes Jade and Andrew - hope you have a lifetime of happiness.
