Perfect for bridal bouquets, centerpieces and backdrops, dried prairie grasses and flowers combine a beautifully subdued color palette with a lovely crunchy texture. When used for outdoor ceremonies, they sway beautifully in the wind, and they won’t wilt, even in the hottest temperatures!
Lush prairie grasses and dried florals are part of a wedding trend that’s still growing in popularity and one we’re going to see more and more in 2022. Begin by selecting a lovely wedding invitation that captures the movement of prairie grasses in the wind and let it inspire you as you plan for your special day! Scattering a few fresh flowers among dried grasses creates a bouquet that looks like you plucked it from a wild meadow. Pampas grass can provide the structure needed to anchor large areas and define spaces.
Carefully boxed, you can arrange dried florals and prairie grass far before the ceremony and easily transport them to your wedding destination. Try doing that with fresh flowers! Keep them dry and out of direct sunlight, and they’ll last for years. You could tuck them away and bring them out for your anniversary year after year, but imagine how you can repurpose them after the wedding. Creating a floral arrangement from your bouquet is a no-brainer, and the garland of dried flowers that decorated your wedding table will look beautiful on your mantel or over a doorway or window.
