Walk on the Wild Side


Wildflower wedding bouquets add a "green," wild, free and natural look to any venue. With the wedding trend leaning towards organic and simple, many couples are opting for wildflower bouquets and boutonnieres. They have a romantic feel and work well in a mismatched formation.

Wildflowers offer plenty of vibrant colors and textures. Popular types include poppies, thimbleweed, New England Aster, forget-me-nots, cornflowers and Queen Anne’s lace, just to name a few.

It will take a minimum amount of research to determine what wildflowers are in your area and how easy it is to get your hands on them. Even if you opt for some traditional wedding flowers you may be able to supplement with some wild grass or heather from your area.
