• New dried flower bouquets with lavender and wheat

    Posted on June 13, 2014 by in Bouquets, Weddings

    There is a high level of interest in dried flower bouquets for weddings this Season

    I’ve been speaking to a lot of brides recently, and dried flowers are being used not just for bridal bouquets, but for the bridal party and venue too. Although many brides are happy to pick our existing designs, sometimes they come to me with something they have seen elsewhere, or would like to me to tweak one of the bouquets they have seen at daisyshop.co.uk.

    The bride in this case wanted a bouquet of mainly dried wheat with a touch of colour, and suggested a wheat sheaf with a hint of lavender as her dried wedding flowers.

    The same bride as above discussed the possibility of including a few stems of barley in a wheat sheaf.
