Vintage Wedding Theme Flowers

HEY! I was just wondering if it's an ignorant or extremely contradictory to have pinwheels as bouquets *or mixed in with bouquets* in an inside church wedding?

The wedding theme is vintage with a childlike feel *hence the pinwheels.*

What are your thoughts on this? Thank you!

Our Thoughts

HEY Back Lezlie of Atkins, AR!

Thank you so much for this fun question! I love your idea and you may be surprised to learn that adding pinwheels to your bouquets is not as uncommon as you think.

A lot of client's who like to keep their wedding a little lighter than so formal have introduced this creative idea into their wedding flower bouquets or as their bouquets entirely.

A suggestion to help keep the pinwheels on a more sophisticated level for your wedding is to have them made out of a muted origami paper instead of the traditional bright n' shiny childlike original. This way you can match the pinwheels to pick up and compliment your wedding color scheme and at the same time you can control the size of the pinwheel.

Make them a tad bit smaller so they do not overwhelm your arrangements if mixed in with real florals, but definitely have fun with them! Add a little extra fun by having the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres be a miniature pinwheel instead of a flower.

You can save a little money on your wedding flower bill, and they will look so cute and add great detail to your wedding theme.

I hope you have a whimsical and wonderful wedding day!
