Beyond Roses and Daisies: The New Flowers For Wedding Invitations

The classics are classics for a reason, but why not do something different with your wedding invitations? If you’re not the type to favor grocery store flowers and you’d rather deck your wedding out in bundles of exotic blooms, get the theme started with wedding invitations that eschew standard backyard blossoms in favor of slightly less common flowers like these.

If you can’t pronounce it or spell it, chances are it’s not the most popular motif for weddings and wedding invitations – so you know when you send out these Blossom Wedding Invitations you’ll stand out from the crowd. The vine-like stems artfully accent a more subdued wedding decor, although they might be more difficult to get a hold of than standard roses. Then again, no one said you had to coordinate entirely.

The spiky leaves and petals of anemones may not seem like an immediate choice to decorate your wedding invitations with, but when softened up with vellum and a sheer ribbon, like in these Anna Griffin Anemone Wedding Invitations (discontinued), we think they look just right. The soft white blossoms stand out against the ecru background of these invites, for a look of softly layered color that calms the harsh shape of the leaves.

We know these Crocheted Flower with Stem Printed Announcements (discontinued) are meant to herald news of new additions to the family, but we can’t help but want to co-opt them anyway! They’re a bit small for wedding invitations, but if you’re looking for simple wedding announcements, bridal shower invitations, or small thank you notes, why not consider these? The crocheted flower is darling and unexpectedly sweet.
