If you’re going for a natural, organic theme at your wedding, what better addition to the elements than using raw cotton bolls? They are so fluffy and feminine and look so lovely in bouquets, strung down the aisle, hung in mason jars, or used as an altar or garland. You could even add them in subtle touches to your centerpieces or tablescapes for some extra delicate texture.
Cotton, burlap, lace and wood with tealights all used together are dreamy, ecofriendly and not to mention extremely budget-friendly options for all you DIY brides – the perfect tool for creating a whimsical rustic affair.
The simple cotton boll is a gorgeous alternative to traditional flowers for winter and spring brides – and they will last forever! It is the perfect example of how something simple can become unexpectedly beautiful when used in the right way. The puffy little blooms also look great paired with other flowers or greenery like dusty miller for a vintage feel, or other grasses for a barn or western theme. Give all your bridesmaids cotton boll bouquets, and make yours extra special by adding in some gorgeous blooms! Also, check out this DIY cotton boutonniere tutorial to carry your theme even further.
