Wedding Floral Inspiration
I love plants, and I love seeing the ways couples get creative with them at their weddings.
There are all kinds of ways to make florals unique and special to you. Don't be afraid to add in sentimental elements that aren't necessarily alive, like lace or fabric from your mother's dress or father's shirt. A recent bride I worked with had a charm from her father in her bouquet, and another plans to simply carry a single red rose down the aisle.
There are all kinds of ways to make florals more personal, but there are two things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing them:
Let the venue influence the florals. If you have a venue that comes with everything, you might only need to get a bouquet. If your venue is more modern and minimal, maybe you just want to put in a little greenery here and there to keep that look, and incorporate that into your bouquet.
Keep the season in mind. When I got married, I really wanted peonies. But it was October and there were no peonies around, so we substituted garden roses which look identical.
Side note: I haven’t seen this, but I would love to see someone make a bouquet from plants local to the city. I know most florists get flowers flown in from other countries, but Austin has beautiful local greenery. If someone wants to have a workshop on that, that would be super cool and I would definitely take it.
If you're planning your wedding and looking for florals, I highly recommend Bricolage! It's a local Austin business owned by a lovely woman named Sam. I've had her do floral work for me in the past and she's incredible. But before you go call her, get some inspiration for your florals in the photos below.
