{friday flowers} midsummer weddings

We are heading to the other side of the world today for our Friday Flowers post – all the way to Sweden! As today is Midsummer, which is the most celebrated festival aside from Christmas for Northern European countries, I thought you may enjoy a little taste of a Scandinavian wedding!

Heart-shaped flower wreaths like this one are quite popular in Scandinavian weddings and my oh my they are also quite beautiful! Wreaths are often also made of couple’s initials – swoon! Wouldn’t they be perfect as a ceremony backdrop or behind the bride & groom chairs at the reception? If you’re after more wedding inspiration from this part of the world there is an entire blog devoted to the lovliness that is a Scandinavian wedding – PrettyChicBlog. Enjoy!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Friday Flowers {oh la lavender}

Lavender is popping up in many places lately, it’s lovely to see it being used in so many delightful ways! No longer only appearing in bridal bouquets, with a little creativity you can utilise this versatile flower in many different forms – a delicate sprig tied to your guests napkins, cones of vintage music sheets filled with dried lavender and rustic bunches decorating guest tables. And of course it smells just divine! A little calico drawstring bag filled with dried lavender makes the loveliest wedding or bridal shower favour. I’ve gathered a few images for you to swoon over and get some ideas on how to use this vintage chic flower.

Friday Flowers {imbue weddings bouquet}

Although I have an undying passion for floral pretties, I can’t produce a floral arrangement to save myself! My flower styling skills are limited to buying one bunch of the same bloom and plonking them into a mason jar, but I live in hope that one day I will do a floristry course and my hidden talent will magically appear! In the meantime my interest for flowers is limited to ooing and ahhing over other people’s lovely work and I plan to share my favourites with you every Friday (hence Friday Flowers!)

The first Friday Flowers feature is from Imbue Weddings (very fitting as they are usually the floral arrangements I am oohing and ahhing over!). Kristy from Imbue always manages to produce such stunning work in both bride & bridesmaids posies as well as table arrangements that are just the icing on the cake for a wedding. Do check out her work and I promise you’ll be in love with it!
