I loved this post from the lovely Rona of Flowerona the moment I saw it.

Ribbons on bridal bouquets don’t sound like a big deal but when you see these, they are so gorgeous!

Brides magazine also featured this trend a couple of months ago:

The ribbons can be different lengths, widths and colours.   They make such an impact and are a fab way of tying in and bringing your wedding colours together.

If you’re into DIY there are various great online tutorials you can use to dye your own ribbons, I like this one here from Green Wedding Shoes.

And this tutorial from Botanical Brouhaha uses avocado skins and elderberries to create subtle organic colours and just look at those finished results.

If you want to buy in your ribbons there’s the amazing US based Silk & Willow which supply plant dyed silk ribbons and is used by a lot of UK florists.  The subtle colours on their website are super dreamy.   As they say, ‘you are purchasing a slow-crafted one-of-a-kind piece of art’ and who doesn’t want to carry a little piece of art on their wedding day?

I have pinned a load of examples onto our pinterest page
