Hi BeeI am hoping to use curly willow in the boutineers and the bouquets..
Something like this but with different flowers… What do you think? Too crafty looking?
Has anyone else done this? If so, show me your inspiration/wedding photos!

@.twist.: I know! that bouquet is really pretty – the feathers in there look amazing! Totally not my theme, my flowers, or anything but I just loved the placement of the willow.

Very cool! I am DIYing our flowers and bouquets for the wedding, so maybe I’ll have to try that! Great idea!

I absolutely love it. You’ll be using it in your floral arrangements as well? I think it is very unique and will look great! What a great idea.

@DJones6005: Really?! So nobody thinks it looks like — down home on the prairie crafty-ish… right?

@klb2748: I think it looks a little rustic, but not in a bad way! It’s a very, very pretty arrangement! If you’re having an outdoor wedding, it’ll go perfectly. If you’re having a church or indoor wedding… well, you might want to compare photos of your wedding site with the bouquet and make sure it’s a good match. But at the end of the day, no one will be judging your flowers, they’ll all be looking at you! Go with what you want, knowing it makes you happy.

I like it-although you might find that grapevine is easier to use and less expensive?

@toshella: I love the willow – and I am not necessarily worried about what other people think. Sometimes I get wrapped up in an idea and then I talk about it to a friend and we pull up pictures and I realize that it isn’t the style I am going for at all. Do you know what I mean? like for example – i bought 22 bags of fake pumpkins, pinecones, and leaves — I thought they could go in the bottom of some vases with branches. Then I talked to my flourist and she pulled up photos of something similar and I hated it.
So i just wanted to make sure I wasn’t looking at this idea and loving it when really it looked too rustic.
We are having an outdoor ceremony – with lanterns on sheppards hooks around the isle and my dad is making an alter which will have a branchy berry type of plant on it that has orange berries…
BUT what makes this difficult – is we are doing pumpkin orange, eggplant purple, and charcoal… charcoal suits, charcoal accesssories for girls, charchoal, orange, adn white striped ties, charcoal table clothes…
So is it OK to have a really trendy modern color like charcoal with the willow if the willow is too rustic?
