The laid-back character and subtle, shabby-chic beauty of dried flowers bring rustic romance to a wedding. Their muted colours and naturally ruffled edges offer a relaxed aesthetic, ideal for evoking a country or bohemian feel.
Dried flower wedding accessories and decorations can last for years with just a small amount of care and become lasting keepsakes of your wedding day.
Adornments such as buttonholes and hair combs can be reworn and enjoyed for other events, including for your own future anniversary celebrations. A table garland can decorate your mantlepiece, a bridal bouquet in a ceramic vase can become the focal point of a room, and your guests can take floral favours as a timeless token from your day.
In the same way mothers pass down veils, dresses and rings to their daughters and sons, wedding accessories made from dried flowers can be saved to be worn again by and future generations. You can create new family heirlooms by keeping and passing them down to your children to treasure and wear for the important occasions of their own lives.
Dried flowers can do everything fresh flowers can for a wedding, but with their own distinct style.
From bridal bouquets, buttonholes and hair adornments to decorations for your aisle, tables and your wedding cake.
Mary Elizabeth Flowers works with couples to create bespoke floral pieces to style their weddings.
The process usually begins with an initial exchange of ideas, then a full consultation with florist and founder Mary, to discuss the details of your wedding design.
“We discuss colours, textures, forms, sizes, fabrics, flowers and foliage as well as the practicalities and logistics. I adore these discussions – being admitted into the secret world of someone’s wedding plans and combining our imaginations to add the floral layer.”
