Wildflowers are fresh, natural, inspiring and are one of the best choices for a spring or summer wedding. Wildflowers can be used for a rustic, boho, backyard or just a laid-back wedding, and what’s good about them – they are very budget-friendly, and you can even gather them all yourself and make all the arrangements without anybody’s help. Let’s have a look at the best ways to use wildflowers at your wedding and look at some stunning ideas.
Wildflowers are amazing for centerpieces: colorful, bold, a little bit messy and textural, they will make a cool centerpiece for a boho, rustic or woodland wedding. You can arrange them in jars, bottles, buckets, vases, even bathtubs to achieve the effect you want. Make several arrangements and put them on a wooden slice covered with a crochet or macramé napkin. Another great idea is planting wildflowers into a wooden box or planter and covering it with moss, this is a good idea for a woodland wedding.
How do you preserve fresh cut wild flowers?
Place the stems straight into a bucket of clean, tepid water (not cold water) as soon as possible after cutting. If possible, leave the flowers in their bucket of water in a cool, dark spot for a few hours to let them stabilize before arranging.
Infuse your tables with the vibrant colors of your wildflowers with a glass mason jar! Simply fill the mason jar with water and colorful flowers, then measure out and place a rock to the side of the jar. Add a vase filled with water as the base and tie the ribbon around to help give the jar some extra support.
There are a lot of different options for making bottles into centerpieces, and they are a welcome twist on the classic vase. By simply filling a washed out and empty wine bottle with a bouquet of your favorite flowers, you can create an elegant and beautiful centerpiece that will add a touch of romance to your wedding. Place them among your centerpieces and line the edge with blooming flowers for an attractive effect.
