THERE’S NOT A FLOWER IN SIGHT IN THESE FOUR BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL ARRANGEMENTS
When life gives you cold weather, make a romantic non-floral bouquet. From greenery to pinecones to cotton to paper (you read that right), there’s plenty to have and to hold once the season’s first freeze hits. We love that you don’t have to worry about wilting and, even better, it’s a fresh, modern design aesthetic. See you at the toss!
This all-green bouquet, made up of majesty palm, Polypodium, Calathea medallion and Alocasia Polly leaves, by Plum Sage Flowers (2323 W. 30th Ave., plumsageflowers.com), would really pop in a wintry white setting.
WILD AND WISPY
Pampas grass, explosion grass, bunny tail grass, smokebush flowers, pussy willow, astilbe, dried kiwi vine and hanging green millet make up this grassy bouquet from owner and wedding florist Holly Yee of Love Letters Floral Design (lovelettersfloral.com).
Corn husk roses, burgundy crepe paper roses, wood acorn flowers and artificial red eucalyptus and grass make this bouquet from Felicity Allyse (felicityallyse.com) feel royal. “Each flower is hand cut and dyed,” says owner Felicity Day. “There is a lot of shaping, cutting and floral tape involved.”
Love Letters Floral Design’s Yee made this larger-than-life fall bunch out of seasonal plants: hanging pepperberry, mountain ash berry, blackberries, Scabiosa pods, vine maple, smokebush leaves, cherry tree leaves, cotton pods, pine cones, roses made from wood shavings and pussy willow.
