I’ve looked at so many different options. . .I have the clearance from my church to use anything I want (!) but I am still quite undecided.
I’m considering a mix of lavender buds and rose petals (fresh or freeze dried) for my flower girl to toss, as I love the smell of lavender, one of my colors is purple, and it will be vacuum-able. . .BUT I do have a lacy train on my dress, and I’m concerned that the lavender may get all caught in the lace. Anyone have any experience with this?
My other dilemna is after the reception (reception is being held at the same location, and we will be changing clothes before leaving, so I’m not worried about staining or things getting stuck in my dress). I thought I had a bright idea to use leaves from some bushes we have all over the yard (privet hedges, with about 1 inch long leaves). . .they are really easy to strip off the stems and actually smell like green apples! lol BUT someone pointed out to me that they won’t fall as gracefully as petals do (true).
A couple other things that I’m considering, but don’t know how they’d look in photos, are lavender buds and/or biodegradable rice paper confetti (looks a lot like snow). Does anyone have experience with how these look in photos?
Any advice would be appreciated 🙂 Thanks!
