Awhile back, one of my favorite wedding inspiration sites, Sparkle & Hay, posted a picture of this gorgeous, beautiful, big-bloom bouquet that is my current must-have of the moment.
I die every time I look at this!
It took me a few days, but I was able to pinpoint its origin to being from Petal and Print, which was featured on Project Wedding not too long ago. Thanks to one of my bridal magazines, I have since learned that it has an official name: a composite or glamelia bouquet. Composites can be made out of real flowers (as well as the fabric/silk/what have you, as seen above) by taking individual petals from multiple flowers and gluing them together to make one large bloom. It used to be really popular in the early 20th century, but has yet to make a comeback. This is partially due to the fact that they cost a pretty penny for all the work involved in making one, whether it’s out of real flowers or artificial material.
That being said, if I really want that exact bouquet or one like it…well, I don’t know. Chances are I won’t be able to afford one, but a girl can dream!
