I recently read this article from One Fab Day, ‘The Hottest Wedding Flower Trend: Dried Flowers’ and it got me thinking. Obviously, here at Rosepetals.ie, we love everything about flowers whether they are fresh or dried. I will always be bias and believe that flowers make everything better!! Whatever the occasion, event or even simply as a pick me up, flowers will fill you with warmth, happiness, cheeriness, love, appreciation… I could go on, but you get my drift. Anyway, back to this article and in particular dried flowers, I have often been asked if the quality of dried flowers is good, if they will last the day and if they can possibly stand up to fresh flowers with regards to aroma? All these preconceptions are just that! Dried flowers can be just as striking, equally romantic and as you will see from the One Fab Day article (and our own website) as breath taking as any fresh display. They should not only be associated with vintage weddings or for those with pollen allergies as they can bring a chic, modern, fashionable elegance to any event. As for aroma, I can honestly say that our freeze-dried petals smell divine and thanks to the way they are preserved they retain all their sensual colour making them a magnificent addition.
