Exuberant dried-flower arrangements take wedding décor to heavenly new heights. The preserved botanicals come in many soft, gorgeous hues—from dusty pink to midnight blue—and don’t need water to stay lush. That’s what makes them an ideal addition to every element of your celebration. While we’ll always love fresh flowers, dried blooms can breathe new life into everything from your bouquet and centerpieces to smaller details like your wedding invitations and even on your cake. Looking for unexpected—but beautiful—ways to highlight this variety of flowers? We have three ideas guaranteed to make a splash.
