Celebrating Individuality With Floral Mix-Ins
According to the dictionary online, another definition for flower is, “the finest individuals out of a number of people or things.” It’s interesting to note that one of the staples in a wedding ceremony is the flower, as it provides a spectrum of colors in celebrating, “the finest individual” we’ve chosen to join in our journey.
As such, when choosing your flower arrangements, much like choosing your life partner, your personal tastes provide that personal touch to your day. But what if there was a way to add a little something extra to your flower arrangements? “Floral mix-ins!” What if your use of flowers extended beyond that to other types colorful arrangements?
The Personal Touch
There are many ways to add specific touches to your wedding arrangements. Spring is abuzz with sunshine, birds singing and the sweet aroma of nectar in the air. What better way to celebrate your spring wedding than with a flower arrangement that includes springtime blossoms? Including wooden honey sticks, button chrysanthemums, and fragrant eucalyptus with your sunny bouquets invites your guests to engage all their senses.
Flowers aren’t the only way to add colorful enhancements to your day. Think wings, eggs and feathers. Peacock, ostrich or pheasant feathers can add depth and color to your arrangements. Silk butterflies make great additions to bouquets and table arrangements for springtime weddings. Ostrich feathers can be died to match your color scheme and make a stunning addition to flowers or an attractive focal point sans-flowers. Add a touch of color to candle holders by adding faux pearls, ribbon, a sequined or beaded flower and a feather for a hint of softness!
