There have been a few instances where I wasn't able to track down a silk version of a specific flower that I need to fully recreate a bridal bouquet in silk flowers. In those instances, I found an awesome and true-to-the-design replacement with dried elements. That was the case with Kyle's bridal bouquet recreation for his wife. She had this adorable bouquet that had the ever so unique Gomphrena throughout. I searched through my various suppliers and wasn't able to find what I needed so I turned to a dried flower vendor on Etsy. It was a great way to support another small business and bring this bouquet to life.
The original bouquet was picked on a farm of whatever happened to be growing at the time. It included white Dahlias, Lavender Roses, Scabiosa, Gomphrena and greenery. Lovely!
Brandon also wanted his boutonniere recreated. A lavender Rose, Scabiosa and a couple of those cute little Gomphrena and tied off with the same charcoal satin ribbon as was on the bridal bouquet recreation.
Here's a photo of the original bouquet; awesome, right? Photo provided by: Laura's Focus Photography.
