Although this whimsical flower might not fit every flower plan when it does it adds so much character no other flower can duplicate. This is an edible Fiddlehead fern curl! That’s right I said edible, although I may not ever know… but people who have said it tastes like asparagus or green beans. Here are a few of the best examples I could find to interpret to you why it is such a unique flower to add to your bouquet!The dark accents against the light pink is flawless. Note the violin shaped heads which is where the term “Fiddlehead” comes from. This flower is popularly found in Maine and Vermont. The look against succulents and Scabiosa pods is not a bad combo! This fern curl typically comes from the Ostrich fern which is grown in well drained, moisture rich, and shady environments. Although they sprout in the wild during the spring months this flower can be purchased at your florist typically all year around.
Both of these bouquets represent the whimsical/mystical vibe if you ask me. If you are looking to purchase this bouquet you can typically find a 10 stem bunch for just under $20. These two examples are my favorite with the calla lilies capturing the eye to tie in the remaining flowers of the bouquet. The large dome shape of these bouquets allow for the tight detail to be tucked tightly into the gathering allowing new details at every photo. The Fiddlehead fern as I said above may not be the detail everyone is looking for in a wedding bouquet. When I first saw it I instantly thought Alice in Wonderland. However, when added with the right mixture of flowers it can capture the attention of your guests to appreciate the diverse selection of florals. Be sure to chat with your florist if this is a possibility to add into your wedding flower arrangements!
