Wild-Flower-Weddings-In-Chicago-7Wildflower wedding trends in Chicago? A new trend for 2016! Have you ever walked through a lush meadow on a perfect sunny summer day and picked an arm load of simply beautiful, colorful and fragrant wildflowers? That’s a memory worth preserving, and more and more brides are asking for “wildflower weddings” for 2016. Bouquets can consist of sunflowers and grasses – a beautiful armload of them (arranged by your florist to have a “just picked” look).

Centerpieces of berries, natural twigs and flowers, prairie grasses, Queen Ann Lace and wild vines can overflow Mason jars tied with raffia or burlap Wild-Flower-Weddings-In-Chicago-8bows. One caution – roadside flowers usually won’t hold up overnight, so it’s best to consult with a florist as to what is available locally, and treated to last, but the great thing about this new trend is that it’s relatively inexpensive and so unique and effective! Make sure your venue doesn’t clash with your flowers!

Wild-Flower-Weddings-In-Chicago-6In Chicago there are a number of outdoor venues and even antique warehouses or actual barns that are available for rent. Wonderful wedding arches and arbors can be constructed using dragon wood legs and a lattice top and the whole structure can be draped with wild smilax vine. You can even tuck in a few flowers to look as though they are part of the cascade of vines. Instead of a runner throw hands full of petals to make an aisle. Chairs on each side of this natural runner can have hand tied bouquets attached to them. Are you looking for something different? Maybe a wildflower wedding is your answer. Your budget will be happy too!
