Wildflower Wedding Bouquets

Wildflowers can be one of the most beautiful and eco-friendly ways to decorate your wedding. You can place them in a mason jar, a vintage watering can, or as illustrated below, into a beautiful pitcher or tied to a fence. They come in a variety of colors, so you can even use them for a wedding bouquet, and best of all, you can plant them in your own backyard. Resources are provided below.
