Dried flowers are very popular for rustic weddings. They tend to be brittle, so take extra care when handling them. A great alternative with a similar look is wooden flowers.
These are carved from thin sheets of wood and can be stained or painted any color. There are truly endless options with wooden flowers.
Pinecones are often the star of a rustic wedding bouquet. If you still prefer flowers to be more abundant than pinecones, then consider using small pinecones tucked in as beautiful embellishments.
Lotus pods and cotton pods make excellent statements in a rustic bouquet or arrangement. A lotus pod makes a great focal point for a hand-held bouquet. Several look fantastic in a table arrangement. Cotton pods can add height and interest to rustic wedding flowers.
It may come as no surprise that roses are considered very popular as a base flower even in rustic wedding flower arrangements and bouquets. Roses are timeless and always looks great.
You can get roses in a variety of colors, so this is a great way to bring in a pop of color if you are using some of the darker pieces such as pinecones or lotus pods.
Succulents have made their way to the top of the trend list in recent years, and they are very popular for rustic wedding bouquets and arrangements. Succulents can be clumped together as the main feature, or they can be used to tuck in as additions.
Other excellent additions for rustic wedding flowers are small fruits, berries and eucalyptus.
The fruit and berries add pops of color exactly where you need them. Eucalyptus adds height and interest to both bouquets and arrangements.
Show your love of natural elements with rustic wedding flowers for your perfect wedding day.
