They’re Back! Dried Flowers Are Trending for Weddings in 2020

They’re Back! Dried Flowers Are Trending for Weddings in 2020

This old school floral trend from the 70s is making its return in elegantly rustic arrangements. Lots of couples are decorating their wedding venues with free-spirited and affordable dried flower arrangements using the traditional flowers they’ve always loved — just dried instead of fresh. Brides are walking down the aisle with unique dried bouquets and grooms are adorning themselves with darling dried boutonnieres. We are 100 percent on board with this old is new again trend.

This trend is something completely different from the traditional fresh flower-filled wedding. But more and more engaged couples are turning to dried florals for their nuptial centerpieces and bouquets. They are in search of something unique, rustic, a little bit nostalgic, and chic.

Dried bouquets have a wild and free boho vibe. And, we just love the color stories that dried arrangments deliver. They are a soothing blend of neutrals, and they bring an earthy, natural feel to a wedding.

Surprisingly chic, dried flowers provide punch to place settings.

And table arrangments are understated yet elevated with the addition of preserved blooms such as off-white hydrangeas, loose greens, branches, and berries.

Dried arrangments can be simple or elaborate, but either way, they are generally more affordable than fresh blooms.
