Bouquets and boutonnieres. They are as much of a staple in weddings as dresses, tuxedos, and cake. Without them, a wedding may seem a little less vibrant.
Kathy and Dick of Medford, Wisconsin, agree. For this reason, they provide not only these two wedding musts, but in a different way. They are florists, and they design gorgeous arrangement. But they up the ante by growing all their own flowers for their creations.
The cool quirk about this? Their flowers are dried.
Through their Etsy shop The Flower Patch, these two design, create, and sell 100-precent dried floral bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages. A little rustic while being completely chic, their products allow brides and grooms to have a different spin on the traditional wedding florals. They currently have seven different styles available (as well as the option to buy loose flowers). Within those seven, they have three different bouquet sizes (10-inch bridal, 6-inch bridesmaid, and 5-inch junior bridesmaid). Matching corsages and boutonnieres are also available for each style.
These arrangements created by The Flower Patch are not only beautiful, but also come with some perks. These flowers allow a bride or groom to have real flowers at their wedding with the ease of artificial flowers—these florals can be purchased ahead of time and kept in a safe place until the Big Day. They will also last long beyond your ceremony and celebration without any additional prep; they are already dried, so it will be super easy to pick up a vase for them to enjoy long after the vows.
