There is no denying that my biggest request going into 2021 has been “pink and dried florals”. How could you not choose it as a color palette? It’s neutral with a pop of pizazz and full of fun textures. I’m doing 8 or 9 different weddings next year in these hues and I am pumped to create each of my bride’s unique visions! If you’re looking for pink and dried- here’s five things to keep in mind!
1. Give your florist freedom to mix in a variety of pink shades.
With the use of so much bleached and dried product, your live flowers could look washed out, especially in photos. Mixing different hues of pink helps create depth and makes those flowers you’ve spent lots of money on stand out!
2. Dried flowers are not cheaper than live flowers.
I know, logically that makes zero sense. They’re dead! However, these dried flowers you’ve seen all over Pinterest are not just picked off the side of the road. They’ve been hanging or drying in someones studio for months of time. Many of them are also bleached which means they go through an even more detailed drying process!
3. Long and loose hanging satin ribbon is a great addition to any dried bouquet.
Here’s a link to some of my favorites. As you can see in this photo- the drama it adds is unmatched!
4. Stay in budget with more minimal bridesmaid bouquets.
The great thing about dried product is that it already has a very structured shape that you don’t have to mess around with too much to create an eye catching bouquet!
5. Have your florist create all-dried boutonnieres.
You won’t have to worry about any of the flowers looking wilted or sad and you can keep groom’s as a forever keepsake!
There seems to be an endless and overwhelming amount of inspiration on Pinterest these days. I hope these tips help point you in the right direction!
