Industrial Winter Wedding

Chelsi Abbott (Bride) CHICAGO, IL
When planning the decor of the wedding I knew I wanted to keep it simple and neutral. Our venue, Salvage One, was an old factory that currently is an active antique store - a gem on the west side of Chicago. I knew that I wanted to play up the bohemian/industrial vibes and wanted to do the 'florals' in plants that are traditionally used as fillers. I chose ferns and eucalyptus as the focal points and added sprigs of baby's breath for highlights and privet berries for depth. After doing a lot of searching I found that FiftyFlowers had the best selection for the price and since all of our centerpieces were recycled cans and bottles we ended up doing all the decor way under budget. I couldn't be ... happier with how it all turned out! Show more

Million Star Bulk Baby's Breath Flower ( 5 bunches, order 4 days in advance )

Used for: Other, Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

I'm a sucker for baby's breath and the ones I ordered from this site were absolutely gorgeous - full and all in bloom. Beautiful accent flower for me.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

This was the winner of the night, the leaves and the seed just added so much texture to the bouquets. Loved it.

Stems break a little easily but such a great vibrant green with feathery foliage.

Took a little bit to cut the stems but these were just a fun texture addition to the bouquets. You have to put them in the center though or else they'll droop down since they are a little heavy!
