Hi, loves! Happy Friday! Today we’re bringing forth inspiration in the form of fabulous, fresh felt flowers. (Say that three times fast.) Felt makes a great alternative to fresh flowers because they require no water, can withstand hot and cold temperatures, and can be crafted in any color you can imagine. Thanks to the lovely Cole of Handmade Colectibles, modern and whimsical felt flowers can be made for every aspect of your wedding. Read on to see three of our favorite hand-picked felt flowers from her shop to inspire your whimsical wedding. Enjoy!
Felt Flowers: 3 Fresh Ideas
1. Felt Bouquet + Brooches
Instead of a fresh flower bouquet, incorporate decorative embellishments and brooches into the mix! We love this Real Wedding example photographed by Tricia Williams Photography:
2. Felt Flower Wreath
Greet guests to your ceremony or reception site with a thematic felt flower wreath! Hang on the door to your ceremony site and display in your home after the big day.
3. Single Stem Bridesmaid Felt Flower
Instead of a bouquet, have bridesmaids carry large colorful single stem flowers down the aisle.
