Friday Flowers: Irises

One of the most under-used and under-appreciated wedding flowers (at least in my opinion of course) are irises. They’re ruffled, dainty, delicate, and come in some very pretty colors! The deep purple is saturated and vibrant, the paler purpley blue ones are perfect if you want just a soft touch of color, and for you brides going all-white out there, why not let the slightest hint of yellow peek out of the center of some white irises! In any color, iris petals give texture, movement, and dimension, while the yellow center adds an unexpected pop of color. Check out these gorgeous bouquets and the variety of ways irises are used!
