Florals are so costly, I’m considering doing dried flowers only. I’m the only one with a bouquet and my man will be the only one with a boutonniere. I know it won’t cost that much then to have a florist make them with fresh flowers, but idk…it still makes me nervous. Plus our location is a little out of the way. I’d rather have everything ready ahead of time.
The thing is…wildflowers are a big part of my vision of this wedding. We don’t have a theme beyond nature…but I wanted my bouquet to be wildflowers, the aisle to have wildflowers on the side, and some wildflowers in the decor. I feel strange about having dried flowers because they look kinda dead. This wedding is going to be in the springtime when things are blossoming. Even so, I think this bouquet is lovely. WDYT?
Has anyone else used dried flowers?

I think they look lovely and it’s really nice that you’ll be able to keep them afterwards. But if you’re getting fresh flowers for the decoration anyway maybe you should also get a fresh bouquet as the direct contrast might be too much.

the bouquet is really pretty, but i sort of think it might be better suited for a fall wedding since, as you mentioned, everything will be blossoming in the spring.

I, personally am nit a fan of dried flowers for two reasons. They are dead, which I find less than appealing. They are also much more fragile than fresh flowers and can start to flake and fall apart if they are handled with anything other than great care. That being said, i do think the picture is lovely! Much more brightly colored than moost dried flowers! So, if yiu’re going to this route, this seems like an excellent source.

cpick: if i get a dried bouquet, i’m definitely not getting fresh flower decorations. i’d rather have a fresh bouquet and dried decorations.
although, my table centerpieces/place cards might be fresh herbs or succulents.

It looks so delicate and pretty, but I would be worried with how it would look as the day progressed. My bouquet took kind of a beating as the day went on. My DH actually accidentally dropped mine. I gave it to him to hold while we were doing photos so I could readjust and BAM, on the ground! Obviously that wouldnt plan on that with yours, but think about the delicacy. It is super pretty though, I love the lace around the stems.

rosecut: not personally my style but I think they’re pretty and rustic looking if that’s your wedding look

NowMrsS: yes i’m worried about it crushing too. it’s a relaxed, daytime affair, so hopefully there won’t be too much commotion that would ruin it. i won’t be throwing this for sure. only handling it during ceremony and photos.
