Pressed wedding flowers may have had their heyday in the 1970s, but dried blossoms are back. The most recent revival sees the fairly, papery blooms–as well as greenery such as ferns and vines–integrated as wedding décor. .
Pressed flower wedding details are a wonderful way to help bring Mother Nature indoors, especially if you are not able to have an alfresco party. Choose your favorite flowers or blooms that your florist is planning on incorporating on your Dream Wedding Dress day arrangements. Or, for a more contemporary sense, try drying ferns and more architectural blossoms such as Queen Anne’s Lace and astrantia.
To conserve your own leaves and blossoms to get these pressed flower wedding decoration ideas, choose an encyclopedia or other heavy book. Line a page together with parchment or wax paper and then organize flowers face down so they don’t overlap. Close to the book and leave untouched for seven to 10 days. After all the moisture is gone and they have a papery texture, exhibit the pressed flowers between panes of glass or in graphic frames as table numbers or seating charts at the reception.
