I am trying to find out what kind of lavender this is….english or french. I can’t find another lavender bouquet with this shade of stem, the rest are all green. I was also wondering if it is dried. Any ideas?
Also, I am getting married in a few weeks in the mountains, so I am wondering if this will look good up there. I thought about adding a few sprigs of dry wheat or orange flowers.
And here is my dress….I just can’t tell if the lavender and wheat will go with it. My whole theme is rustic mountain, and we will be hitting peak foliage while we are getting married (or at least close to it). I thought the lavender and wheat would go great with the foliage but I am 27 days away and starting to freak out a bit 😉

I think the stems are brown because the lavendar is dried.

I can’t help with what type of lavender it is but I do love the idea of lavender with wheat. It will look lovely. Also yes, the flowers are dryed thats why the stems are brown. You wouldnt have to worry about keeping them watered.

You can use Google Image search to ID pics other than dresses.
Here is the original pic. It is dried French lavender.

Thanks everyone, I think I have decided to use the french and get some wheat from Michael’s or Hob Lob to put in it. Still worried if it will look ok with that dress or not :p The girl in the picture has purple flowers at least….

The Lavender bouquet is dried English Lavender–a darker blue variety like Hidcote or Royal Velvet. I made the boutonniere of dried English Lavender, grasses, green wheat (not very visible) and a dried poppy pod wrapped in copper ribbon and wire.
