My love for The Sound of Music started at a young age. My mother and I made it an annual tradition to watch it together during the holidays. We would sing every song at the top of our lungs and dance around the living room. To this day, I always get a warm feeling when I hear any song from The Sound of Music. BUT my all time favorite song was always and will always be “Edelweiss” . So I got to thinking… I wonder if people have incorporated Edelweiss into their weddings and how was it done?
Edelweiss (edel=noble, weiss=white) is very rare and short-lived flower that can be found in secluded mountain areas. The flower is a symbol for rugged beauty, nobility and purity associated with the Alps and is a national symbol of Austria and Switzerland. There are stories and stories about the Edelweiss including young men who would climb the alps up dangerous trails pick Edelweiss and present to their special lady. It was a symbol of true love. As for the girl who received the Edelweiss , she would often dry, press it and frame it to be used as a pendant – to remember the man who had found this flower and presented it to her to show his devotion. The Edelweiss is love. Love and devotion. Prefect for weddings.
Every morning you greet me
Small and white clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Bless my homeland forever”
Throughout the wedding process men might find it a little difficult to show their true personality within the décor. Their one (and only) accessory for the night is their boutonniere. The options and possibilities are ENDLESS! When talking with your florist, try incorporating your fiancés favorite hobby, music, or movie to show how much you appreciate his character.
These were some of my personal favorites because they were outside the box!
This is becoming more popular! One quick tip if this is what you would like to do for your groom, make sure to clip the barb down on the fly… If they put their jacket on their chair then lean back, you can not only puncture his nice shirt but it will be very difficult to get out as well.
This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites! Autumn is the best time of year in my opinion and the brown with the fresh white of cotton just says perfection to me.
If you have been looking for a way to stray away from the traditional boutonniere I hope this got your creative juices flowing. Something about having an original piece for your groom to be connected to will tie him into the excitement of accessorizing. Any of these can be used through many different seasons, don’t get so stuck on what will look good or what people will think, remember to have some fun with it too!
What’s an “It Girl” you ask? The term references a women who is extremely fashion forward, confident, and iconic. She is the ultimate class act and can always keep her cool, especially when the paparazzi arrive in herds to snap pics of her. She knows who she is and what she wants. There are indeed celebrity “it girls” from Alexa Chung to the Jagger sisters who inspire folks by their keen fashion sense, mock their style and secretly want to be.
Each “It Girl” below has their own unique style for their weddings. While they are all beautiful in their own way, each is so different and out of the ordinary that we can’t help but to love these weddings! I’d like to present my fav fashion “it girls”.

Kate Moss, that’s all that really needs to be said here. However, I’ll add a little text with this. She is hands down one of the most inspiring fashion icons of our time. Her wedding highlights her signature effortless style while looking absolutely stunning.

Love is in the air! This couldn’t be more accurate for our next “It Girl” Pamela Love. Bohemian chic to the max. Pamelas dress was designed by her best friend and designer Mara Hoffman. The wedding was interactive as many of her friends and family collaborated on the decor of the wedding including a vegan cake, a hand crafted tee pee and a birch chuppah.

You know how they say, “Never judge a book by its cover?” Well in this case, “Don’t judge a flower by its name”. This flower adds that natural elegance into any bouquet or table arrangement but the name… not so much. It’s called Leptospermum. You can find this flower in many shades, however, the most popular are white, pink, and red.
See below for this unique Friday Floral and if you would want to use this peculiar accent flower.
While making flower selections for your special day this one might not be the first on your list, but the fact that it is not your average wedding flower makes it the exclusive spark you have been desperately needing.
This flower is an easy accessory to compliment any arrangement. Try to step outside of the box and use the “other mum” to satisfy the look you want on your wedding day.
