Branch out beyond the standard bouquets and centerpieces by utilizing your florist’s creative skills in every asset of your day — like topping off your wedding day ensemble with wearable botanicals! From the lush bohemian flower crown to the subtle sweetness of a single bloom pinned in an updo, the fashionable statement can be tailored to fit any wedding theme or venue. “Wearable botanicals have become popular with the bride that is looking for something outside the box to make her wedding a little different than the four other friends who just got married,” says Carmel Vandale, owner of Mt. Lebanon Floral. Let your flower girls get in on the fun, too, with adorable mini crowns, or coordinate your bridesmaids’ floral accessories to match the groomsmen’s boutonnières. “We love the drama of making large head pieces, but some of our favorites are the tiny, tiny hair pieces that are tucked in to the hair. So sweet and romantic!”
