Can grasses look beautiful in wedding flowers and bouquets?
Charlie / 19 January 2012
For a while now I’ve been squirreling away images specifically for this blog post, which if you are looking for something a bit different in your wedding bouquet or your wedding flowers in general might provide some inspiration. Grass. Yes, really, I haven’t gone mad – I think grass (not the stuff from your lawn) can look utterly beautiful in wedding flowers, and I set out to prove this by collecting some utterly gorgeous examples.
Whether dried and paired with deep coloured flowers and a bright pop of yellow…
Soft and green and paired with blousy peonies and hedgerow flowers…
Featured prominently in a ‘height-of-summer’ bouquet with a scattering of bright prairie style flowers..
Provides height to a summery bouquet of yellow ranunculus and orchids…
Perhaps it is barely-there delicate and trembling amongst cottage garden favourites like scabious…
Maybe it’s a gorgeous spray of grasses amongst cut flowers in a beautiful table arrangement…
Or a bold wedding bouquet of grasses in neutral earthy shades…
However grasses might be used in bouquets or floral arrangements for weddings, I want to see more of them. Don’t you think they are overlooked and that these pictures show how beautiful they can be? When I first saw grasses used amongst flowers it got me searching for more examples, and yet they were difficult to find – this collection has been pulled together over a few months of keeping my eyes peeled.
I hope you have been inspired and might consider incorporating grasses into your wedding flowers!
What do you think? Have you seen any other beautiful examples of grasses in bouquets or arrangements? It would be lovely to hear from some of the flower businesses listed on the directory and who follow the blog on your thoughts – are grasses easy to grow or source?
