It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question from one of our lovely readers! Amber asks,

“Hi Emmaline! What do you think of dried flower bouquets? I have seen bridesmaids carry them but I’m not sure what the difference is versus fresh flowers. Are they cheaper? Are dried bouquets meant for a certain wedding theme? Thanks!

Great questions, Amber! We’ve been seeing many brides using dried flower bouquets lately. In today’s post, you’ll learn why dried bouquets are so popular right now, find out the best theme to use them, see which elements are included, get helpful tips, and see some stunning examples. Enjoy!

Dried Flower Bouquets

Why are dried bouquets so popular?


Beau-coup Wedding Favors

Dried bouquets are fragrant, less expensive than fresh flowers, and last forever — so they also make beautiful gifts. They also require no refrigeration, so you can order them well ahead of time and now have to worry about where to keep them (especially important for hot, humid weddings in the summer). Brides also love the ease of customization, as these bouquets can be color coordinated to match your wedding palette.

Best wedding theme for dried bouquets?

We recommend dried flower bouquets for bohemian or rustic themed weddings.

What elements are used in dried bouquets?

The most popular dried flower bouquets we’ve seen typically include elements such as dried lavender (which smells amazing!), tansy, larkspur, gomphrena, peonies, billy balls, flax, oats, and dried caspia — just to name a few.

Are dried bouquets better than fresh?

We love the look of dried bouquets; but it’s really a personal decision. There’s no right or wrong choice – it’s completely up to you.

Do you have any recommendations?

If you decide to choose dried flowers for your wedding, you’ll want to use a professional designer skilled in creating such bouquets, as floral design really is an art (and these flowers need to be arranged and dried in a certain way). One such designer we adore is The Blaithin Blair Shop, who has created all of the bouquets you’ll see in this article. Plus, you can’t beat the price!
