August in the Adirondacks is rife with wildflowers. The abundance of daisies, black-eyed Susans, and Queen Anne’s lace along every roadside prompted us to go through our personal photo archives for wild arrangements we’ve made for get-togethers, or just to brighten up the office. We also threw in a few garden snaps, a bouquet of wild purple irises from late June, and a few photos of perennial hydrangeas displayed in (what else?) aqua mason jars. Thinking about adding some wildflowers into the mix at your wedding? While they add a rustic, natural touch, keep in mind that these wild beauties won’t hold their shape as well as flowers from the florist — some wilting after a few hours is inevitable.

    These are so beautiful! I love the aqua colored mason jars! I didn’t even know they came in colors. I really love wild flowers too.

    I think incorporating these flowers in a wedding is a great idea. I love the aqua mason jars!

    I’ve always dreamed of having lilacs for my wedding! I hadn’t thought of using mason jars but they’re a nice touch.

    Thanks, ladies! We’ve actually been meaning to photograph lilacs, but the spring season always seems to pass by before we can get to it. We also love apple blossoms when you want to add a wild touch.
        
    Jessica — mason jars come in at least four colors that we know of — aqua, green, amber, and violet. The green, amber, and violet jars are pretty rare and thus more valuable than the clear and aqua variety. We only have one green jar in our collection.

    Blooms from the florist may last longer but there’s just something so sweet and authentic about wildflowers. Daisies and black-eyed Susans are my favorites!

    Agreed, Nicole! The great thing is that you can have your florist add in wildflowers to any of your arrangements, even your bouquet. You can either pick them and bring them to your florist, or you can ask what they have available.

    Wild flowers are so pretty! I like the idea of incorporating small branches from flowering trees into wedding arrangements. I think apple blossoms or flowering dogwood would be good choices.
