Unusual flowers, seed pods and dried grasses can be stylishly presented as a bouquet or wedding decoration and can bring you joy long after the wedding, as they are long-lasting. Here we have collected the most beautiful ideas for a bridal bouquet made of dried flowers.

While you can dry almost any flower, some work better than others in bouquets and arrangements. For wedding floristry, go for something sturdy so you don’t have to pick up fallen petals all day – your florist can advise you on what would be best for your wedding. Particularly popular for the bridal bouquet made of dried flowers are:

  • Grasses such as pampas grass, pennon cleaner grass, sedge (Carex), wheat stalks and hare tails
  • green branches like eucalyptus and olive branches
  • frond of palm leaves and ferns
  • Branches of Lunaria (also known as silver leaf), cotton, and pussy willow

  • Dried flowers such as hydrangea, delphinium, chamomile, sea lavender (Limonium), foxtail (Amaranthus), gypsophila, roses, sedum, lavender, carnations, rice flower (Ozothamnus), king protea and straw flower (Helichrysum)
