HorseFeathers Silk Wraps for Bouquets and Bridesmaids
Bridal bouquets wrapped in boring ribbon are so 2010. Instead, give your bridesmaids HorseFeathers Gifts’ silk wraps, the bouquet accessory that duals as a keepsake.
Created by mother-daughter team Tammy Morse and Chelsea Farmer, these vintage-inspired hand-dyed silk wraps pull double duty as floral adornments and friendship bracelets. They’ll add a pop of gorgeous color to your wedding palette, while the heartfelt notion is something your bridesmaids will keep close even after the ceremony is long over. With prices hovering from $22 to $62 each, they feature plates made from recycled metal scraps and can be customized and dedicated to each individual bridesmaid. Have each of your bridesmaids’ names hand-stamped onto the plate, or add an even more personal touch with a favorite quote, saying, or sentiment. If the cat’s got your tongue, HorseFeathers offers a ready-made selection of inspirational quotes to choose from—including “Expect Miracles” and “Just Breathe”—as well as small dangling tokens like starfish, sunflowers, dogs, and sparrows (a symbol of love and commitment).
However you choose to personalize them, these have “boho-chic summer wedding” written all over them. Bear in mind that Morse and Farmer hand-sculpt, fire, tumble, oxidize, and polish each metal charm onsite. Translation: These wraps aren’t an overnight indulgence. You should allow a few weeks to have your silk wraps in time for your wedding day.
When it comes to wedding DIY design ideas, simpler is usually better. Fortunately, HorseFeathers are easy to use as accessories—they come together as smooth as, well, silk. Just loop the ties around your florist’s prewrapped bouquet stems with the plate in the center. Tie the wrap in the back, then continuing winding the remaining silk around the bouquet. Tuck in the ends, and your bouquets are ready to go down the aisle.
