The Wildflower Wedding - Bridesmaid's Flowers

It would be hard to imagine the blessing it is to watch these girls grow up and start their lives together unless you had been part of it.  They have been close friends for the entirety of their school careers as most of them met when they were in Preschool or Kindergarten.  Now the first one of them is getting married, three more are in college, and one is headed to nursing school.  Their lives are truly beautiful and so are they!

Flower crowns are easy to make if you know the trick of it.  The easiest way to make one is to make a ton of mini bouquets, called posies, and put them in water until the day of the event. I had learned this over much trial and error in the last couple months. My dear friend at @sheholdsdearly helped me make more than 100 posies for these crowns the day before the wedding.  At one point, sending me to the venue so I could measure the space for the floral backdrop and working on them herself for hours! She blessed me far more than she knows that day.

Inspired by the theme of "wild", most of these are things we found on our properties or in the creek near our house.  The blackberries and Hawthorn were dethorned by hand before we made the posies so nothing poked the bridesmaids at the event.  The bachelor buttons and straw flowers were gathered from my own yard and the roses and carnations were purchased.  

The bouquets mirrored the elements of the bride's bouquet but smaller and less elaborate.
