My mom just graduated from floral design school and is doing my flowers for the wedding.  She actually recommended doing this with some flowers so I could get the right shades I wanted.  She says it turns out good!  I know you can buy different textures depending on the kind of look you want.

I am planning on doing this for the petals for the flower girl. Our florist actually recommended it when I told him I was going to try to dye silk flower petals to get a deep purple color. Not sure how it will turn out yet, but I am excited to try it!

Beautiful colors! My only suggestion would be to make sure you definitely do a trial run. My mom’s a florist/designer and I grew up working in her shop and from what I experienced, spraying flowers wasn’t usually encouraged. It often doesn’t turn out looking very natural. That and its pretty difficult to do especially when you’re hoping to go as rich and deep a color as you are. One alternative she would sometimes suggest is only spraying the tips of the flowers. This way you can emphasize or saturate the flower closer to the color you want, without making it look unnatural or well, spray painted. Sort of to mimic the look of a circus rose, only in your desired colors. If you’re planning to DIY maybe even try starting with a darker base. There are some varieties of lilac roses, or maybe even a hot pink could create a bit darker of a base so not as much spray is needed?

All  that said, there are many talented people out there, each with their own skills and specialties. I’m very sure with time and patience the right person could likely create a master piece… but again, definitely worth the trial run so you know what to expect! 

Keep us posted!

No problem! I hope the trial run goes really well for you! Make sure to share some pics!
