Five Ways to Wear Florals that are not a Crown.

I love a flower crown, but if you want to stand out in the wearable florals department, a regular old flower crown just won't do any more.  You need to get more creative.  

You can still wear flowers in your hair, but why not try them braided into your style? 

Maybe it's your bouquet you want to mix up?  How about trying a bridal corsage?  Or, keep the bouquet and don the corsage for the party. 

A floral anklet is the perfect accessory against sun-kissed legs at a beach wedding. 

Wouldn't a floral armband be a fabulous addition to an alternative bridal look? 

I am over the moon with the idea of stepping up your veil game and adding flowers throughout.

In Season Bloom // Protea

I've been noticing an interesting bloom popping up around pinterest.  One edgier than the peony, rougher than a rose, cooler than a carnation, it's the Protea.  These flowers, date back millions of years and originate in South Africa and Australia, but are now grown across the world.  They can range in size from 4 inches to the King Protea (pictured in the single bouquet below) measuring 8 inches plus.  You can see by the diversity of the photos below that this statement flower mixes well with almost anything, or can stand just fine on it's own.  This flower is the next big thing!
