Wearable Florals for Weddings:
Wearable florals for women are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative or in addition to a bridal bouquet, or for the members of the bridal party. The current trends that are evolving include flower crowns, rings, necklaces, hair clips, earrings, belts and more. While it is still a trend that is emerging and hasn’t quite caught on yet in South Africa (people tend to still be quite conservative in this regard) it is definitely on the rise and provides a novel, creative and bold statement. Often seen incorporated in styled shoots, more and more brides are opting for floral alternatives to the typical bridal bouquet and boutonnières and corsages worn by their bridesmaids, groomsmen and family.
With the introduction of cold floral glue, floral artists have been given much more freedom when it comes to creating new and exciting wearable florals. The cold glue doesn’t damage the flowers in the way that hot glue does, is not as brittle and has more flexibility which lends it to being used for items that require movement. While it does take slightly longer to dry, once tacky it sticks well and once dried has incredible strength – a florist colleague mentioned she once used it to glue her daughter’s school shoe! Now, I’m talking on a topic that I have not yet ventured down the road of but I am so excited to try out putting together some of these new accessories. Have a look at some of these beautiful creations for inspiration…
