If you’ve been on TikTok or Insta lately, you know that Pressed Flowers are trending! Romantic and delicate, with fun retro vibes, pressed flowers can be used in all sorts of ways to bring the garden or cottagecore style to your wedding day. Edible cakes and cookies (like the one above from Blushing Cook | photo: Serenity Film and Pictures), floral covered invitations, backdrops, wedding dresses and even nails! The sky is the limit with these pretty petals! Perhaps the best part about using pressed flowers in weddings?? The decor and details make wonderful keepsakes!
The History of Pressed Flowers
If you think pressing flowers is a new thing, think again! This artform can be traced back to Ancient Egypt. It was a popular pastime in the Victorian Era, and again in the 1970s. Everyone from professional botanists to everyday men and women would keep pressed flower journals, and this even led to important botanical finds over the years.
With current cottagecore trends focusing on simple pastimes and a heavy appreciation for nature, it’s natural that pressed flowers would make their way into the Wedding World, and we’re loving all of the clever and unique ways vendors and couples are utilizing them!
