It appears that not hiring a wedding planner or day-of coordinator is equivalent to matrimonial malice these days, but this couldn't be further from the truth, especially given the abundance of DIY wedding decorations available.
If you're looking for a creative way to bring some life to your wedding decor, consider using dried flowers. Whether you're opting for classic vases of dried roses or something more whimsical like Dried Grasses and Preserved Foliage, there are plenty of DIY flower decorations ideas out there that you can try.
You can also mix and match different types of flowers to find the look that's perfect for your wedding. And don't worry, inexperienced couples: every option on our list is a doable DIY project that doesn't necessitate a lot of time or effort.
We're talking about inexpensive flower arrangements, flower baskets, and flower backdrop so you can take control of the wedding décor without spending a fortune.
Here are our 6 favorite DIY Dried Flower Wedding Decoration ideas.
Create Your Own Bridal Bouquet
Bouquet arrangements should come from the heart and reflect who you are as a person, thus they should be simple to put together on your own.
To make your own mix, choose dried flowers such as Dried Posy, Baby’s Breath, Spray Rosies; preserved foliage such as Ruscus, Eucalyptus, Royal Fern; and finally Dried Pampas to add some texture.
Wrap the base in ribbon or leave long trails of cloth as a final touch to create a little fluidity. A piece of lace or a bit of fabric from your grandmother's wedding gown can also be emotional. Pins, an antique brooch, or a significant memento can be used to keep it in place.
Dried Flower Crowns
It's so simple that even a child could do it! Plait a few floral crowns for your bridal party or miniature attendants to refresh those well-nurtured crown-weaving abilities from your youth.
There's no need to get too fancy; a simple Dried Helichrysum chain is oh-so-adorable.
For a fuller look, try Dried Gypsophila, Preserved Ruscus, or Lagurus Grass. Bunny tails are particularly appealing to us because of their rustic charm and young purity.
We can't get enough of baskets as wedding décor, not only because of their rustic charm, but also because of their practicality. Use them as vessels to be carried by your flower girls, to house wedding favors, to be filled with stationery, to gather floral centerpieces, or to hold comfortable accessories for your guests.
Make a backdrop for the ceremony.
While we believe that nature is the best—and most cost-effective (it's already included in the venue fee)—option for ceremony backdrops, we also recognize that your altar may require a little more oomph.
Another option is to create an asymmetric desert-inspired frame made of dried palms, pink pampas grass, and foraged local flowers is stunning.
When most people think of aisle décor, they imagine floral runners weaving their way down the sides, but the same effect may be produced with significantly less effort.
Make a floral backdrop for your photo booth.
While flower walls are undeniably beautiful focal pieces, they also come with a significant price tag. A garden-inspired backdrop, on the other hand, is an uncanny DIY option.
You can select a wall or get a wooden canvas and embellish it with individual flowers, wreaths and foliage or perhaps in bunches for a fuller effect. Fill the entire board with foraged blossoms and greens for a less deconstructed look. Dried Eucalyptus, Dried Gomphrena, Kaaps Flowers, etc are some great choices for this DIY.
Dried flowers are a great way to create DIY wedding decor while also helping to save money. Not only are they affordable, but they also add a touch of rustic charm to any event.
