One style of floral design that is always timeless and happens to be my favorite is the wild, natural, organic design. To create this design floral products are often foraged locally. This allows the bouquets, centerpieces, and other decorations to blend into the natural surroundings of your ceremony and reception site.
The colors of blooms are seasonal and complement the textures of the land. The contents of the flowers can also be unexpected. Including a random thistle, draping vine, or unopened bloom can add lovely texture and depth to the bouquet but it will still look native to the landscape. Spilling stems and vines create a wild but delicate shape to the bouquet.
This simple flower girl bouquet was designed by Sarah Windward. I love the stems soft palette of pink, cream, taupe, rust, and sage green of the eucalyptus. The muted pastel tones tied in to the brown and tan grasses of the mountain meadow and the pink hues of the nearby hills. The naturally plant dyed sand colored silk ribbon adds the perfect elegant touch to the gathered blossoms. It was all so lovely with the cream lace dress of the flower girl.
Wedding floral inspiration can be drawn from the fragrant scent of springs floating lilacs, soft windblown grasses of summer, autumns trees draping heavy with stone fruit, or minimal textured branches soon to go dormant for winter. Whatever your vision, natural elements will make for a timeless, beautiful addition to your wedding day.
