Framed Florals Interviews // Wedding Flower Care
I remember picking out my wedding flowers, marveling at the centerpieces, placing baby's breath in my bridesmaids hair, tossing my bouquet, driving back to Brooklyn with a car filled with flowers, and lastly pressing those same blooms. What I did with them in between, I couldn't tell you. (I'm ashamed!) And even as much as I love flowers, I can't remember what I did to ensure they didn't wilt or die the day of my wedding. Oh those wedding flowers, such an important aspect from such a momentous day! While my job is now on the other side of the wedding day, often times the next day, or day after.. I think, now more than ever, it's super important to care for those flowers to make sure they last until I get them! Remember, the better you care for your flowers, the better your Framed Floral piece will look!
I've asked some of my favorite florists to share some insider tips on keeping your flowers in great condition the day of, and after your wedding day. A big thank you to all the florists for their wise words. (Click their photos to be linked to their Instagrams, where you'll see some of the most gorgeous floral arrangements!) And another thank you to Jordan of Letter & Stone for letting me feature her lovely Dahlia sketch! (Click the image to pop over to her insta as well!)
