The Most Nostalgic Centerpiece We’ve Ever Seen (Plus 9 Ways To Use Dried Flowers)

When you know, you know! With amazing foresight, Michigan bride Shelley Clark collected a rose from every bouquet that her then-boyfriend now-husband gave her throughout middle school and high school and displayed them at their wedding reception. While you probably don’t have a collection of sentimental stems at your disposal, you can still take advantage of the nostalgic romance of dried flowers by including them in your bouquets, boutonnieres, wedding signage and reception centerpieces. See how Shelley showed off her dried rose collection, then check out the photos below to see how to pull it off at your wedding!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
