The Allure of Dried Flowers

Sustainability and Longevity: In an era where sustainability is more than just a buzzword, choosing dried flowers for your wedding is a heartfelt nod to eco-consciousness. Unlike their fresh counterparts, dried flowers don’t require water, and their longevity means they can be prepared well in advance of your big day—a stress reducer we all love.

Versatility in Style: Whether you’re envisioning a rustic barn wedding or a sleek, modern affair, dried flowers can complement any theme. Their muted tones and varied textures add depth and character to wedding décor, from boho chic to elegant vintage.

Year-Round Availability: One of the greatest advantages of dried flowers is their availability. No longer are you bound by the seasons; your favorite blooms are ready whenever your heart desires. This means you can plan your wedding for any time of the year without worrying about the availability of your chosen flora.

Selecting Dried Flowers for Your Wedding

Choosing Your Flowers: Not all flowers dry beautifully, so it’s important to select varieties that retain their color and shape. Lavender, roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath are excellent choices for their resilience and timeless appeal. Consulting with a florist who specializes in dried arrangements can provide invaluable guidance.

Color Schemes and Themes: Dried flowers offer a palette of soft, earthy tones that can beautifully complement your wedding colors. For a harmonious look, consider incorporating shades of beige, cream, dusty rose, and sage green. These hues can elegantly tie together your wedding theme, from your invitations to your table settings.

DIY vs. Professional Florists: For the crafty couple, creating your own dried flower arrangements can be a meaningful pre-wedding activity. However, don’t underestimate the time and skill required to curate these lasting pieces. Professional florists can offer a stress-free solution, ensuring your floral décor is nothing short of spectacular.

Dried Flower Decor Ideas

Bouquets and Boutonnieres: Bridal bouquets and boutonnieres made from dried flowers not only look stunning but also become instant keepsakes. Imagine holding a bouquet of dried lavender and eucalyptus as you walk down the aisle, its aroma gently wafting through the air.

Centerpieces and Table Runners: Dried flowers can transform your reception tables into works of art. Consider tall, dramatic centerpieces for a grand effect or delicate, scattered blooms for a more understated elegance. Table runners made of eucalyptus leaves and interspersed with roses and peonies can add a romantic touch.

Ceremony and Venue Decor: From the ceremony backdrop to the venue entrance, dried flowers can create a cohesive look throughout your wedding. A dramatic floral arch can serve as the perfect frame for your “I dos,” while garlands of dried flowers can guide your guests to their seats with grace.

Preservation and Care

Maintaining Your Dried Flowers: While dried flowers are indeed more durable than fresh, they still require gentle care. Keep them away from direct sunlight and moisture to prevent fading and brittleness. A light dusting now and then will keep them looking fresh throughout your wedding day and beyond.

Repurposing After the Wedding: One of the joys of choosing dried flowers is that they can adorn your home long after the last dance. Consider framing a portion of your bouquet or creating a decorative wreath. These mementos will serve as a daily reminder of your love and commitment.


Dried flowers bring an unmatched level of charm and sustainability to your wedding day. Their beauty lies not only in their appearance but also in their ability to last long after the festivities have ended, offering a tangible piece of your special day to hold onto forever.
