How to Use Pampas Grass in Your Wedding Florals
2020 was the year of the dried flowers used in wedding florals but today's inspiration is next level high fashion feel. Dried and preserved botanical ingredients definitely had a moment this year, and incorporating dried seed pods and grasses lends lots of texture, movement, and seasonality to arrangements. It's also a great way to achieve a more muted overall palette instead of using brighter green hues. Fine Art Curation member Marni Rothschild together with stylist Lindsey Nowak were drawn in by the popular Pampas Grass to create today's inspiration...
"Inspired by the wispy Pampas Grass native to the Southeastern US, we picked an informal but romantic bridal look to match. The grasses are abundant in our area and we wanted to echo the organic, loose and playful mood they project. And by only using grass we chose to emphasize the drama and impact of amplifying one single plant. The color palette and decor are also well suited for an intimate fall wedding or event and doesn’t require a large investment!
The light and airy grasses paired perfectly with a pale pink gauzy skirt and sweater. The plant is extremely versatile and you can incorporate it into everything from hair accessories to hanging pieces. (I do suggest spraying the tufts with hairspray first to avoid shedding and unnecessary clean-up!) We topped it off with a calligraphed kraft paper envelope that pulls the custom paper suite together and plays off the earthiness of the grassy decor."
