There's a big rosemary bush in the backyard of the house where I grew up, and everytime I smell it, it feels like home. Rosemary also symbolizes loyalty and remembrance, and what better time for such sentiments than a wedding?
When I thought of DIY-ing my flowers, the thought occurred to me to add some rosemary to my bouquet as a way to honor those loved ones who couldn't be with us at our wedding, as well as to provide the familiar comfort of the smell of my old backyard as I walk down the aisle. And it doesn't hurt that the texture it adds to a floral arrangement can be pretty lovely, too!
What do you thinkdo I smell a new theme here? I just found this herbal inspiration board and am drooling (and imagining home-baked rosemary sourdough bread) as I type this!
Did you find inspiration in unexpected places? Like, say, your childhood backyard, maybe? :)
